is what we and all our students in the past year have enjoyed about
Rye above and beyond its historical charm:
1. Ease of access: Thanks to the
Channel Tunnel, no long journey is necessary to reach us. Ashford
is only 90 minutes away from Brussels and 2 hours from Paris,
and it takes half an hour to get from Ashford to Rye.
2. Convenience: Rye is small enough
for everything to be at walking distance: shops, restaurants,
sports centre, train station and historic sights are all 5-10
minutes away from us on foot.
3. Food: The choice of food in
English supermarkets has certainly improved, and Mike, who loves
cooking food from all corners of the globe, manages to find all
the necessary ingredients easily.
4. Hospitality: We and all our guests have found the people of
Rye to be extremely friendly and welcoming.
5. Climate: What has probably been
the nicest surprise for us is the moderate climate of this region.
The proximity to the sea makes the temperature at least 3-4 degrees
milder than London for example.
