This experience provides a deeper understanding of French people and their way of life, unveiling facets rarely seen by typical tourists.

Who can be hosted by a French host family?

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

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


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 maintaining a strong connection with our host families, who have welcomed our students for numerous years. These families are delighted to open their homes, sharing their everyday lives with you and creating a welcoming environment that feels like home.

We emphasize ample opportunities for students to engage in meaningful communication with their hosts, fostering an optimal language learning experience. As a visitor to the region, we highly encourage you to actively participate in afternoon activities and excursions with your hosts. This not only enhances your language skills but also allows you to immerse yourself fully in the local culture and create lasting memories with your host family.
