Learn French in Biarritz: Accommodation

Accommodation is offered in and around the town of Biarritz. Allow 20/35 minutes for the one way commute to college.

French Hosts/Private households

  • Offered to students aged 16 yrs+
  • One week plus duration
  • Single rooms
  • Shared room offered to friends/couples only
  • Half-board basis (breakfast and evening meal)

Can be booked on a single room, half-board basis (breakfast and evening meal) with local hosts. Shared rooms can be booked (but only if you are going out on the course with a friend).

The French hosts generally accept 1 to 4 students into their home at one time.  They provide a light continental breakfast and the evening meal (generally around 8.00pm, but varies from hostess to hostess).  Hosts can be single ladies, couples or families (anyone who has a spare room and is willing to host a student/s).  Each student will be given a key to the house and is free to come and go as they please, whilst respecting the hostess’s house rules.

Biarritz will be very busy in July/August, the private hosts became completely fully booked last year so please book early.

The families are carefully selected by the school and generally live around 20/35 minutes by public transport away from the language school building.
