Since 1995, our organisation has been specializing in Homestays , we organize in advance your stay with families that have been carefully selected on specific criteria of readiness, friendliness and open mindedness.
They are couples or single mothers, still working but whose children are no longer home. They usually have one to three bedrooms available for students, which makes it possible for several students to stay together with one single family. All our families are well educated and culture oriented.
As a general rule they are 3,4 or 5 room flats, some are high standard apartments indeed but it is essentially for their readiness and hospitality that we select the host families; Most flats are located in central and residential areas of the city. We visit personally each and every one of the families we select therefore we do not produce photographs of their flats.
Yes, most apartments have access to internet, the services include ADSL, cable TV and Wifi, yet you must have your own connecting equipment.
It is an option for two friends ( of the same gender) staying during the same period of time. It is also appropriate in the case of groups where members know one another and where two people agree to share room. The double rooms that are on offer are rather large and comfortable with two separate beds.

This option is concerned by participants applying for 3 months minimum stay. Under that option, students have access to the kitchen for dinners, but not during day time, also to other common parts of the apartment only with your host’s permission. It is a formula that is convenient for independent students , not really interested in sharing meals and life of the family, nor willing to have cultural exchanges with their hosts.in case of dissatisfaction, in the first 2 weeks, there is no extra fee for new research. Only one change is possible.

Our organisation’s working line is that we organize your stay in advance and that you go directly to the family’s we selected especially for you.
Only if agreed by your host.
Transports to and from your Homestay is to your expense. There are shuttles at the airport, there are taxis and underground links. If you wish a transfer from the airport to your homestay, please contact our office to have all the information on connections and prices.

Your hosts will propose you to make your laundry once a week as a minimum, more often possibly if you agree with them. If more than 2 students in the flat, your host might ask you to go to the launderette.You are certainly not expected to do the housekeeping, but you are expected to keep your room tidy and clean.
