My experience on Homestay in Lyon…

Contact us

Hello everyone, I am a student from Toronto and currently on my academic exchange in Lyon.

I would like to share with you some of my personal experience with Lyon Expat Homestay service and as far as I see it, Lyon Expat is just what as its name suggests:


E- Expertise. When I started looking for host families, I kept my options open by reaching out for different agencies and even a few online service websites. Lyon Expat stands out with its expertise in this field by proving me with most flexible packages and affordable price.

X- Express. I approached Lyon Expat with a tight deadline since my accommodation confirmation is required for VISA purpose. I at first thought this would be a mission impossible, but Lyon Expat really served us with heart and even worked on my case over weekends! I was more than happy that with the help of Lyon Expat, not only my accommodation but also my VISA have been settled so shortly.

P – Patience. Finding a matching host family is just like finding your perfect man/ woman, and I have been pretty picky in either case. Duration, location and tolerance to pets/smoking etc- I can not remember how many proposals have been rejected on my end. However, Lyon Expat is always patient and they actively seek for every possible solution to any concern I addressed.

A – Adjustment. After initiating the contract between my host family and me, Lyon Expat frequently smooth out the communication between us, and act as a coordinator to oversee the whole situation. August is the most popular season for a family vacation in France and I lost the contact with my host family. Lyon Expat helped us reconnect and thanks to its help, we are able to make the airport pick up arrangement before my arrival.

T – Tres Bien. Without being in Lyon in person or having a close friend here to help, I would never think of settling my housing issue so smoothly and efficiently. My experience of finding an accommodation with Lyon Expat can be concluded in one phrase, which is “Tres Bien”!
