IS AIX-EN-PROVENCE


Depending on your priorities we can help you choose the most suitable kind of accommodation for you. Everyone is different but we recommend homestay because it’s an excellent complement to your French course in France.

The homestay gives a total immersion in the French language and culture, but if you prefer to be independent you may choose another type of accommodation, such as a studio or hotel room. You can also look for your own accommodation.


 Homestay

The homes are rigorously selected within 30 minutes on foot or up to 20 minutes by bus from the Institute.

Please note that the procedure for arrivals is after 18:00 on Sunday and on Saturday mornings for departures.

Homestays are booked and invoiced by IS Aix-en-Provence.

3 options are available :

- Half-board: single room with continental breakfast and dinner. You have lunch elsewhere and cannot use the host’s kitchen.
This type of accommodation encourages linguistic and cultural immersion; it’s an excellent complement to you French language course in France.

- Bed & breakfast: single room with continental breakfast; you have your other meals elsewhere and you cannot use the kitchen unless the host agrees.
This kind of accommodation is recommended for people who want to be independent – contact with your host family is rather limited.

- Room with access to the kitchen: you stay with a homestay family and no meals are provided, but you have access to the kitchen to prepare your own meals – you and your host decide on what times you can use the kitchen. 
This kind of accommodation is recommended for people who want to be independent and/or have a special diet.
