French Culture Homestay Program

French Culture Homestay Program

In the French Culture Homestay Program you will have an opportunity to live in a French family and visit Provence with someone who will give you an insider's view of the region. We will show you the Provence we love, the things that appeal to us, tell you the local anecdotes, and help you to sample the Provençal way of life.

The following is a sample of some of the topics we could center our visits around:

» Historical Provence: Explore the regional antiquities from the Classical Period and the Middle Ages.

» Le Luberon and Les Alpilles:  Visit the quaint villages and beautiful landscapes.

As with all of our programs, the homestay portion begins on Sunday after 5 pm and ends on Saturday after breakfast. The French Culture Homestay Program consists of three days of excursions per week. Unlike our other programs, the admission fees to all sites visited are included in the listed price (see the pricing page). The cost of any restaurant meals are the responsibility of the student. The other days are open, giving you time to explore the region as you wish. We will do everything we can to provide you with the necessary information so that your free days will be 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 as we visit Provence together!
