Accommodation French family*

This option lets the student meet French people and share a part of their daily life. We select families for their seriousness and their wish to meet and integrate a foreign student.

A host family in Lyon provides:

  • Individual room
  • Access to the kitchen and bathroom (respect for the rules of family life)
  • Washing machine (minimum 1 wash per week but generally unlimited)
  • Linen
  • 1 or 2 meals per day with the family (breakfast and dinner) according to the student’s choice

We ask our host families to sign a document called “Chartre d’engagement” which guarantees Lyon Bleu’s standards and expectations in terms of accommodation service and the relationship with the student.

In addition to this we have a system of visits and verification for families who collaborate with Lyon Bleu international. We ask our students to fill out a quality questionnaire so that we can integrate their feedback and maintain our high standards of quality.

Accommodation in residence**

  • The student can rent a studio in one of Lyon Bleu International’s partner Hotel residences.
  • The residences with which we work are visited regularly by our school director and administrative staff, and prices are constantly being renegotiated so that students of Lyon Bleu receive discounts on the price offered to the general public.
  • The residences are all close to the school (10 to 15 mins by bus or subway, or 15 to 30 mins on foot)
  • The studios are furnished and equipped (kitchen and bathroom, TV and internet connection).
  • The advantage of this option is its flexibility, as the student can rent it for only as long as they wish to stay in Lyon.
