Immersion in the French culture
Host-family – Half-board
This is the ideal arrangement for discovering “French life” and quickly improving your French outside language courses and activities.
Our host families are carefully selected and they particularly enjoy meeting foreign students, helping them learn more about French culture and helping them discover French cuisine in a familial and friendly atmosphere.
You can choose a single or double room, either with someone of the same age or of a different nationality.
Breakfast and dinner is included with your host family. Dinner is the ideal time to share a meal with your family and speak in French. A packed lunch can be added on request.
The host-family option is the best way to be completely immersed in the French language and to integrate into a French family.
Transport at arrival included
Your host family comes and picks you up on your arrival at the airport or at Nice station. In order to organize your transport, please send us the details of your arrival and your flight or train times at least 2 weeks before you arrive. Transport on departure is not included but can be booked for 50 €.
There is free WIFI connection with all of our host-families.
Bedding and towels provided
You host-family provides bedding and towels.
One washing machine load per week is included for our under-18 students.
French host- without meals
Living with a French host is the ideal arrangement if you wish to be independent whilst still having contact with a French person.
The idea is to live communally with the host. Our French hosts are generally people living alone or in a couple.
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.
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!
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.
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 !
