TESTIMONIALS

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

SosoNigeria

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 and they also spoke a lot of French with us!

AlexandraGermany

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

PeterEngland

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

Je suis très satisfaite avec ma famille d‘accueil! Joëlle était comme une maman française pour moi. L’appartement était très propre et j’avais tout ce dont j’avais besoin. Elle cuisinait très bien et nous parlions chaque soir ensemble. En plus, elle a fait la lessive pour moi bien qu‘elle ne soit pas obligée de le faire. Pour moi c’était aussi un avantage d’habiter à Cimiez car c‘est très calme. C’était vraiment le bonheur avec Joëlle 🙂

J’ai adoré rester avec Odile et sa famille. Ils sont très sympa et très accueillants. Ils parlaient lentement et clairement avec nous et les repas étaient toujours délicieux.

Ma famille était vraiment super !! Je n’ai jamais reçu un accueil de ce genre, je me suis bien entendue avec tous les membres de la famille (les parents et les enfants), je me suis sentie vraiment chez moi. Ils méritent un trophée !
