Type of room

Comfortable room in an apartment or house and a family used to receiving foreign students:

  • Breakfast: you do not have access to the kitchen to prepare your meals. You will take your meals away from home. iLP will advise you of good deals for discovering French cuisine.
  • Half-board: breakfast and dinner are taken with your hosts. This form of accommodation is recommended for intensive practice of the language in a friendly context and for discovering the French lifestyle.
  • Full-board: in addition to breakfast and dinner, your hosts will prepare a packed lunch for you.
  • Kitchen access: you will be able to prepare your meals. Your host keeps a place for your food and you can cook at certain times agreed with your hosts.
