• HOW DO I CHOOSE MY ACCOMMODATION IN NICE?

The choice of accommodation for your language stay in Nice is very important

This is why we have our own internal accommodation service at the school, managed by our accommodation officers Laura and Edurne who are at your disposal to guide and advise you in your choice.

Once you have arrived, Edurne is at your service throughout the duration of your stay.

All our accommodation is carefully selected according to strict criteria and la Charte d’hébergement du Label Qualité Fle, IALC et Eaquals. We perform regular assessment visits and all of our students receive a satisfaction form to fill out at the end of their stay.

We offer you different types of accommodation according to you expectations, wishes and budget.

If you wish to be more independant, our student residences and our hotels may be better for you.

In order to help you choose the most appropriate accommodation for you, please find some guidelines below.

Immersion in the French culture

Host-family with half-board

If you are looking for an “immersion” experience, our “host-family” with half-board arrangement will be the best choice. Living with a French host-family allows you to immerse yourself in the French culture, share meals and chat with your host-family.

Our host-families have worked with alpha.b for a number of years and are able to integrate students into their family as if they were family members.

All our host-families are a maximum of 30minutes  from the school on public transport (bus-tramway).

You will stay in your own room (single or double) and will receive keys to the apartment.

Breakfast is not always eaten with your host, depending on the timetables of each person, but the evening meal takes place with the family. This is the ideal opportunity for you to practise your French outside of the classroom.

A couple of weeks before your arrival, you will receive all the relevant information about your host-family: address, names, telephone number, email and a description of the family.

The host-families particularly like it if you send them an email before your arrival so that they can get to know you and organise your transport from the airport or station.

TESTIMONIALS

This is my second time here and if I can, I will come for a third time. The first time I was here, I stayed with a host-family and the second time with a French host. Both trips and sets of accommodation were fantastic.

My host-mum was so welcoming and attentive. I really enjoyed living with a host-family because the whole family tried so hard to welcome us and they also spoke lots of French with us!

The location was great and our host-mum was kind and welcoming. I really liked my accommodationn, the meals were fantastic and the conversations were brilliant.

It’s super that the school is only 2minutes from the hotel for staff accompanying school groups, and that the host-families are within 20minutes from the school for our students.
