France is a romantic country with a lot of history and therefore the perfect place for au pairs who want to discover the world. But France is a lot more than just Paris!
There are many other cities in France that are also very popular with au pairs, such as Nice, Marseilles, Lyon or Corsica. Why should you go to France for your au pair stay?
An au pair program in France is a combination of work and travel. During your everyday life with a host family you learn a new language by doing, since you not only work in the house, but also live there as a new family member.
You have to organize and pay for the trip to France yourself. There are, however, some host families that will pay for your travel expenses so the total cost of your au pair stay won’t be too high.
In exchange for taking care of the children and helping with little chores in the house, you will receive free food and accommodation in your own room. Host families that live in the country also usually pay for your transportation to the language school.
