Cultural Homestay

In the French Culture Homestay Program you will have an opportunity to live in a French family and visit Versailles and its region with someone who will give you an insider’s view of the region.

We will show you these places we love, the things that appeal to us, tell you the local anecdotes, and help you to sample the regional way of life. The following is a sample of some of the topics we could center our visits around:

Versailles palace
and the gardens

Grands appartements, Petits appartements, Trianons, Parcs and Fontaines, ...

The chateau of Versailles constellation

Vaux le Vicomte, Fontainebleau, Anet, etc

The painters

Monet in Giverny, Van Gogh in Auvers-sur-Oise, Barbizon school (Corot, Courbet,...), etc...

The Normandie coast

Honfleur, Deauville, Étretat, Dieppe...

The gothic cathedrals

Chartres, Saint-Denis, Amiens...


Museums and Moniments, walks in the elegant or more polpular streets, secret Passages, café terraces, the river Seine...

As with all of our programs, the homestay begins on Sunday after 5 pm and ends on Saturday after breakfast. The French Culture Homestay Program consists in three days of excursions per week.

The other days are free, allowing you to explore the region as you wish. We will do everything we can to provide you with the necessary information to make your days of freedom enjoyable.

This program is a wonderful opportunity to practice your French as we embark on excursions together, however the program can be conducted in French, English, or a combination of the two as you wish.

Come and have a magnificent time with us!
