Lodging

Homestays

Staying with host families requires respect from both sides since it means sharing part of a private life. You will have your own room, own key and you are independent up to a certain extend, but you will have to adapt yourself to e.g. meal times of the family and the rules of the home. Showing interest in your hosts and being open minded towards them will help you to integrate quickly. A host family is not a hotel with hotel services.

You will benefit for your French language and also have an interesting insight into French family life as well as French culture.

We place great importance on reserving the best matching family for you. All families are carefully selected and we have the reputation for providing excellent host families.

Student Residence

The student residences are very popular with students, who like independence and meeting other students from all around the world. You have your own studio including private bathroom and own kitchen or access to a common kitchen. You prepare your meals yourself or together with other students. You can also enjoy many reasonable priced restaurants and student bars nearby. You will have to respect the rules of the residences, but you are completely independent. Most students staying at the student residence are between 18 and 30 years old, but also some older students young at mind chose this option. The atmosphere is lively.

If you prefer the idea of mixing with other student, going out a lot and having independence rather than integration into a local family, you should consider this option. The demand is high and we recommend you reserve early.
