The best way to improve your French is to use it as often as possible. IFALPES arranges homestay accommodation, allowing you to practise your language skills all day long. By living with a local family, carefully chosen by our school, you’ll also experience the French way of life. Your family will provide you with 2 meals per day, or just breakfast, depending upon your preference.

Student residences

You can chose to enjoy the company of your fellow students while you learn French. There are student residences, with shared kitchens and wireless Internet access (available for an extra fee).


If you prefer to keep a certain independence you can choose to stay in a shared apartment. You will have your own bedroom and will share the kitchen and bathroom with other IFALPES students (of various nationalities).
All accommodation is located near a bus-stop in Annecy or its immediate surroundings. Our accommodation service is always at your disposal.
