Living at Ermitage

Maisons-Laffitte:

a quiet retreat just outside of Paris
 
Boarding students get to experience French life in a beautiful place. The pedestrian-friendly town and green park space of Maisons-Laffitte offer the comfort and safety all families desire for their children, while still allowing easy access to Paris and all of its museums, monuments and cultural events. Right here in town, our boarders have access to shops, bakeries and cafés, giving them fun opportunities to practice their French language skills and taste local delicacies. Being a boarder at Ermitage means enjoying the best of both worlds!
