Accommodation

Family accommodation

Staying with a family signifies respect on both parts. You will have your own bedroom, your own key and you will be independent to a certain point, but you will have to adapt, for example, to the meal times and the rules of the house. An open attitude and interest in your hosts will make your integration much quicker. 

You will benefit from using your language and being able to look into the life of the family and the French culture. We try very hard to put you with the appropriate family. All families have been carefully selected and have excellent reputations as hosts. 

  • Transfer pick up and drop off: the welcoming family will collect you from the train station or Montpellier airport when you arrive, and will take you back when you leave.
