Host Families

This is the best way to guarantee complete immersion into French culture and the local way of life.

Our partner school chooses their host families carefully and visit them regularly to ensure they are the best Antibes has to offer; all families offer comfortable homes, are open and ready to invite you to share and become a part of their daily lives.

The majority of the host families live within walking distance of the school, however, especially in high season, students can be placed in host families a little bit further away - but never more than a 30 minute bus journey, the costs of which will be covered and included in the price.

Should you choose to stay in a twin room, the school will try to place you with a roommate who doesn’t have the same mother tongue, encouraging you to further practice French outside of the classroom.

If you have any dietary requirements, please let us know in advance and we should be able to arrange it with the school and your host family. Gluten free diets cost €20 per week.

Students aged 25 and over cannot be placed in a twin room unless they book together. 

Note: Additional nights can be booked in all of our accommodation options, however, costs vary depending on the accommodation type and season. Please contact us directly for more information.
