How to reserve

For adults : please complete the accomodation section on your registration form. You will be notified of your registration confirmation as soon as your request has been taken into account. We will send you the reservation and the details of your accomodation two weeks before the beginning of your training course. You will be asked for the placement fee in addition to the accomodation costs.

For unaccompagnied minors : accomodation in a host family is included in your stay (junior programme). Nevertheless you can indicate on your registration form your preferences (with a friend, with or without animals, allergies, etc.). We will send you your reservation and details of your host family approximatively 2 weeks before the beginning of your course. The placement fees are included.

For accompanied minors : We don’t take charge of accomodation for students accompanied by their parents. Please get in touch with the tourist office in Royan to know the accomodation possibilites. A lot of accomodation is equally proposed on online reservation platforms.

If you wish to reserve your accomodation yourself (campsite, holiday rentals, hotels,…), don’t hesitate to go on the internet site of the tourist office Destination Royan Atlantic.
You will also find a lot of offers on private individual rental sites like Airbnb or LeBonCoin.
As Royan is a particularly touristic region in summer, we advise you to make your accomodation request as early as possible.
