Discover Saint Malo

Saint Malo, a famous seaside destination in Brittany, boasts a long and proud history of nautical explorers, traders, and corsairs. In the heart of Saint Malo stands an impressive ancient walled citadel with exquisite intra-muros of stone ramparts, that circle the entire old city. Take a stroll all around the walls and enjoy the spectacular views of the bay, at high and low tide.


Host Family

Staying with host families allows students to fully immerse themselves into the French culture and way of life.

All participants stay with a French host family in a double room (with a student of the same age and sex but a different nationality) with full board. Some families provide a single room depending on the space available in their accommodation and the number of students they are hosting.
