A unique human and cultural experience!
Students who want a fully immersive stay can opt to stay with one of our many host families.
Living with a family is a guarantee that students will be immersed in French culture, will become familiar with French customs and be offered daily support with their language learning.
Our school offers a wide range of French families who meet the criteria and requirements of our students. They offer students a warm welcome and invite them into their homes. As such, in the evenings, and why not at the weekend, students and families socialize together and share their respective experiences.
Vous serez logé(e) dans les limites d'Antibes / Juan-les-Pins / Golfe-Juan, le plus près possible de l'école et en général vous pourrez vous y rendre à pied. Cependant, il se peut que vous deviez faire ce trajet en bus (maximum 30 mn), notamment en haute saison.
Why do our students choose to stay with host families?
Students can choose the half-board package and have meals with the family. This allows them to have an introduction to French cuisine and dinner is a special time for relaxed discussion.
Our families meet their students at Antibes train station or Nice Airport and take them back on departure day.
All our families are in the town of Antibes-Juan les Pins, most at a reasonable distance from the school and town center but no more than a 30-minute public bus ride.
Some families have villas which are particularly suitable for students who bring their own vehicle.
When making placement decisions, students’ wishes are taken into account, within reason!: A family with or without pets, a family that can cater for particular dietary requirements, a family with shared interests (musicians with a piano for example).
Available accommodationINDIVIDUAL OR DOUBLE ROOM
Our families offer adequately furnished comfortable rooms in which our students feel at ease and can have some privacy.
If our students opt for a twin room, we do our utmost to ensure they are sharing with someone of the same age but a different nationality. Rooms have two beds and are spacious enough for both students to be comfortable.
• Double rooms
For reasons of privacy and comfort, we ask any students over the age of 25 to choose a single room (unless booking together).
• Sheets and towels
Bedding is provided for the duration of the stay and are changed regularly. Towels are not provided.
Families offer a suitable room and, as such, expect students to keep it reasonably tidy.
Most families provide Wi-Fi access.
Families who agree to wash students’ laundry in their washing machine may request a contribution of €2 per load. Otherwise, students may use one of the many laundromats in town.
• Contact details
The contact details of your host family as well as additional information are sent no later than 2 weeks before students arrive.
