Staying in a host family is the best way to discover French culture and to practice your French. We carefully choose all our host families to ensure that you will be well looked after.

We have lots of different host families. They may be single parents with or without children, or a couple: all enjoy having our students. You will be warmly welcomed by a friendly atmosphere and immersed in the daily life where only French is spoken. There may be other students in the house, so you can also enjoy their company.

Students are lodged in single or double rooms. Weekly laundry and cleaning is included. You will have your own keys to come and go as you wish, but you will have to respect a schedule, especially for mealtimes, and some basic rules.

Please bear in mind that the host family accommodation may not be luxurious but the family will always be welcoming and kind, and you will be well looked after. However, if you have any problems please do not hesitate to talk to us, as other arrangements will always be possible.

All our host families live in Nice, never too far from the school and accessible by walking, the tram or the bus. However, in the summer, high demand means it is possible that some families will be further away from our school, and it could be up to 30 minutes away by bus or tram.

  • If requested, students can be met at the train station or airport. This service is available until 9pm. If students arrive after this time, a paid taxi service is available.
  • Please inform the host family of your arrival information at least a week before arrival.

We will send you the details of your host family with the confirmation pack shortly after enrollment. You will then be able to contact the family directly to introduce yourself and ask any questions. During your stay our accommodation officer will be there to guide you or help you with any further questions.
