Secure and Welcoming Hosts

FHN is the first standards-based nationally focused homestay organization in France. We conduct national criminal background checks, in-home interviews, and complete home inspections. Our sophisticated student/host matching service, 24/7 critical-incident service, banking and payment services, and airport transportation services make the FHN homestay experience the best in the nation.

Great Homestays Near Your School

France Homestay Network (FHN) matches each student with a matching host family located near the student’s place of education. The host will provide the student with a private bedroom, an agreed upon meal plan, and will assist the student in learning the local customs and transportation systems, as well as help the student become acquainted with the France way of life. Many students enjoy activities with their local family and become life-long friends.

Value for Money

The France Homestay Network operates in different regions across the France. Each region has student pricing specific to the living costs and services being made available in that region. FHN Homestay offers the best value for money option for the early stages of an international student being welcomed, culturalized and accommodated as they prepare for the commencement of their studies in France.
