SURF COURSE (5 x 1,5 lessons)

available as a supplement

The Atlantic Coast of Southern France is a true surfer’s paradise. If you feel like getting in touch with your inner surfer, be sure to join the surf course at our partner school in Anglet.

The surf course includes five lessons with professional surf teachers per week (1.5 hours each) which take place in the afternoons. Equipment will be provided. Surf lesson times may vary depending on the weather, tide, and the size of the waves. Occasionally due to weather or water conditions surf could be not safe, so students will receive theoretical knowledge in surfing, paddling and first aid or the surf lesson can be cancelled or postponed.

Please bear in mind that booking this special may prevent you from joining other activities or a scheduled excursion. This special is not included in the activity programme but can be chosen at the time of booking as an upgrade.

Residence or home stay

You will stay in single, twin or triple rooms in Maison Diocésaine, situated just 20 minutes away from the town centre and 40 minutes away from the beach. We have standard rooms with shared bathrooms or en-suite rooms with a shower in the room but shared toilets are available. Bedding and towels are provided, but please bring extra towels for the beach. All rooms are lockable. A deposit of 50 EUR is charged on arrival.
You’ll get full board accommodation that includes breakfast, packed lunch and dinner. Breakfast and dinner are taken in Maison Diocésaine.

Additionally, there will be fruits or yoghurt, water or juice, and a bag of chips or chocolate.  We offer vegetarian options. Any special dietary requirement must be requested at least 3 weeks prior to arrival. Please advise about any general food allergies at the time of your booking.
Our supervisors live in the residence as well. They are there if you have any problems or questions. Free wifi is available in the main areas. A local bus pass is provided for the duration of your stay.


You may also stay in twin or triple bedrooms with one of our friendly homestay hosts, most of whom have been welcoming students for many years. Our hosts are not always traditional families with children but can also be single with or without children. There are also older people and young families with or without children. They live in Biarritz, Anglet and Bayonne – some are situated close to the school while others are a bus-ride away (on average 30, max. 60 mins, a local bus pass is provided for the duration of your stay). Therefore, homestay is a good opportunity for self-dependent students who like to learn something about the everyday life of a French family. You will get full board accommodation with breakfast, packed lunches and dinner. We offer vegetarian and vegan options in the homestay accommodation. Any other special diet (Gluten free, lactose free, food allergies) on request only. Halal and kosher food is not available. Please advise at least 3 weeks prior to arrival about any special diet. Please be aware that due to bus frequency or availability at nights, students accommodated in host families perhaps will not be able to attend the evening activity.

Our Supervision Concept in Bayonne

Your safety and welfare are our top priority: there is one supervisor responsible for 15 students between 13 and 17 years. However, supervision groups during activities on or off campus will have different ratios of up to 25 students for 13-17 year olds depending on the situation.

Students in Bayonne will be free to experience and explore things with their friends on and off campus, but with daily checks from our supervisors to provide a good mix of supervision and personal freedom. Daily checks include: wake-up, breakfast, class check, assembly, programme check with sign-up lists, dinner, TTT and night check. Participation in the afternoon and evening activity programme is a mix of compulsory activities and voluntary ones. You will join some afternoon activities and evening events with the rest of the students (3-4 afternoons & evenings per week), to know each other, enjoy the international atmosphere and make new friends, and some days you can choose between taking part in the offered programme activities or exploring the town or relaxing in the residence or by the beach with your new friends. All students attend the offered excursions.

When the activities are not compulsory you can choose between taking part in the offered programme activities or exploring the town with your friends in pairs or bigger groups in the afternoon after informing our staff members and signing out. You must be back in the residence for dinner and if you sign out in the evening at 10:30 pm. (Depending of the public transport the return can be 11:00pm). Our supervisors reserve the right to limit these times when necessary.

If you are staying in host families, you have to return to your host family for dinner. After dinner you can either stay in there or return to campus for the evening programme. If you want to leave the Host family on your own until 10.30pm the IP team should be informed as well as the Host family.

The activity programme is bilingual (French and English). There are activities in French and English in the afternoons and bilingual activities in the evening. During the excursions, there will be different groups per language or a bilingual guided tour (in case of smaller group sizes on site).

You will be part of a TTT (Time to Talk) group of up to 20 students. All TTTs and assemblies are compulsory. In these meetings you can inform your supervisors about your plans for the rest of the day. The members of our team have been carefully selected for their responsible and caring attitude and for being fun-loving and outgoing. They are the people you can turn to at any time for assistance.
