Become a homestay host

Turn your spare room into extra income


Host an international student

Alpadia is looking for friendly homestay hosts who are willing to open their homes to our international students while they learn French or German. In exchange for remuneration packages, we’re looking for hosts who will welcome our students as members of the household and be representatives of their own community – offering guidance and advice when needed regarding the local area and culture. 

Why host with Alpadia?


Matching students to homes

At Alpadia, we are committed to the highest standards of care and support.
We strive to find the right placement for both students and guests to ensure a rewarding experience.

Experience new traditions

Welcoming international students is a great experience... for everyone!
Not only will students be looking to understand more about your local culture and customs, but you’ll also encounter a range of new cultures yourself with each student that you host.

Receive student support

Throughout the whole journey, you’ll have access to dedicated support staff 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
No problem is too big, no query too small – they’re there to ensure your experience is as smooth and pleasant as possible.


You will receive financial compensation to cover the costs of having additional students in your home.
