Host family


Live with a host family

Homestay accommodation is the best way for a foreign student to discover and immerse himself in French life and culture.

For any reservation, it is necessary to read and accept the conditions of the host family accommodation corresponding to the chosen formula.

Half-board formula

As meals in France are a convivial moment shared with the family, we particularly recommend the half-board formula. You will be part of the family you live with and you will discover their way of life, their habits and share with them your daily life and convivial moments (breakfast and dinners, weekends, evenings…).

Room in a private home

For those who want more independence, we also offer two packages :

Bedroom only : you’ll stay independently with a host family, who will provide you with a bedroom, bathroom and kitchen facilities for breakfast and dinner.
