Homestay Accomodation

Homestay accommodation is an integral part of our french immersion homestay program. Our apartment is on ground floor of a building built in the 1960s, in the heart of a beautiful, quiet tree-lined residence. It is located in a small town near Versailles.

We bought and remodeled it according to our taste, but in keeping with the French tradition. It is beautifully decorated with antique furniture which has been passed down in our families. You will be very comfortably installed in a bedroom with an en suite bathroom, completely private. Your room has a king size bed which can be turned into two beds. It can accomodate two people (friends or a couple) who have registered for our programs together.

Just a few steps from our apartment, a bus takes you directly to Versailles or Saint-Germain-en-Laye in 25 minutes. From Versailles, Paris can be reached in 45 minutes..

Students staying more than a week are welcome to extend their stay with us over the weekend and have breakfast and dinner at no extra charge. Our house is a non-smoking house.

I hope that you will be walking through our door soon where a warm welcome awaits you!
