Host family
This accommodation option is ideal if you want to immerse yourself in the culture of French-speaking Switzerland and to forge links with the inhabitants. The families are carefully selected and know the school well. Living an average of 30 minutes away from the school, you will stay in a double or single room, with half board provided. Living with a host family in French-speaking Switzerland will allow you to discover the lifestyle of its inhabitants, its traditions, its culinary habits and to have a very enriching experience. It’s also a chance to practise your French daily in a friendly environment, allowing you to make rapid progress.

Shared apartment
For those who wish to share with other international students, the school offers accommodation in shared apartments. Living around 10-20 minutes away from the school, you will stay in a double or single room and share the common rooms with your flatmates. The apartments are bright, comfortable and have excellent facilities, including a TV, equipped kitchen, a washing machine and a Wi-Fi connection. This accommodation option is advantageous from a financial point of view and is an excellent opportunity to make new friends.

Studio
This studio offers independence for students who wish to enjoy more privacy. It includes a single bed (convertible into a double bed), a bathroom and bed linen (changed every two weeks). Please bring your own bath towels. You will have access to a fully equipped kitchen (refrigerator, oven and utensils) and to a washing machine (shared). A phone is available for incoming calls, and Wi-Fi is free of charge. The studio is non-smoking.

Private apartment, hotel
Various possibilities, additional information available on request.

The leisure activities programme is based around places of interest in the region and social events. Students will have the chance to get to know each other better and practise French outside the classroom during the outings and excursions organised by the school. Sporting activities are organised in summer and winter alike. Thanks to its geographical location, between a lake and mountains, Montreux is less than an hour from the Alps. Numerous ski resorts offer excellent conditions for fans of snowboarding and skiing, as well as extraordinary scenery for nature-lovers. During the month of July, Montreux is home to the famous Montreux Jazz Festival that gives the town a lively rhythm. Add to this event the numerous exhibitions and noteworthy cultural events in Montreux and the surrounding areas of Vevey, Lausanne and Geneva, and you have a tempting activities programme!
