Homestay Program with French host family in Summer

Family stay while studying French in France in summer

French families are carefully selected by the school for their openness and friendliness and can be made of a single parent, active retired people or families with or without children. They come from various social and economical backgrounds.

French language home stay in Cannes is the most efficient option for language learning and a great way to learn about local culture, experience daily life with your hosts and learn everyday expressions. You get an insight into French people and culture that the tourist seldom sees.

Who can be hosted by a French host family?

Minimum age is 16 years old. Home stay with a French family is particularly suitable for single students – teenagers from 16 y.o or adults.

We suggest families (parents with children) attending our French summer school to stay in one of these guesthouses which offer similar services to host families, more space and a more appropriate housing for families : Villa Belle Rive (with a swimming-pool and direct beach access), Villa Blue Dream Cannes (with a swimming-pool) and Villa Roc Fleuri.

Best to match you with a suitable family is to book it in advance. Generally speaking, the demand of French host families is higher than the supply. Booking in advance is the best way to connect you with a French host family that best suits you.

Type of accommodation and services​​

Bedroom: Students are lodged in a single or a double room.

Meals: Your host family provides you half-board : breakfast and dinner. Lunches are provided during the week-end if the student has confirmed he/she will be at home.

Internet: All our host families have a wifi-internet access.

We pride our organization with staying in close touch with our host families who have welcomed our students for many years. We hope you will find that they are happy to share their everyday lives with you and make you feel at home.

Students have plenty of opportunities to communicate with their hosts. This will ensure the best language learning experience. As a visitor of the region, we encourage you to take part in activities and excursions in the afternoons with your hosts.
