OMNILINGUA offers several accommodation options suitable for all needs. Depending on your priorities and purpose of your stay, you can choose from:
- Apartment with other students
- Private apartment
- Italian family
Both single and double rooms are available. For double rooms, accommodation is separate for men and women. The age of the student is taken into consideration and we also promote cultural interaction. The accommodation usually starts from Sunday evening, the day before the course starts until 11am Saturday morning. Some participants prefer to arrive a day earlier or to stay 1 day longer – This is not a problem provided that the school is contacted in advance so as to organise this extension. All accommodation is located 5-20 minutes walking distance from the school as well as the beach and the city centre. The meeting point for the shared apartment with the other students and the private apartment, is the school. Regarding homestays or Hotel accommodation, the meeting point is either at the family home or the hotel. The guests will receive the accommodation address together with the enrolment confirmation and will receive the keys upon arrival. All accommodation is equipped with bed sheets, but for both the apartment and the family, the students must bring their own towels. Please keep in mind that in Italy, like in the rest of mainland Europe, all electrical appliances run at 220Volt/AC and the sockets may be different from other countries and therefore an adaptor may be needed.
Of course, it is possible to enrol for an Italian course without making any accommodation arrangements through us. Upon request, OMNILINGUA can organise accommodation for relatives and friends that are not attending classes.

Airport Transfer Service
It is possible to organise a pick-up service from Nice Airport, France. The school driver will take you from the airport directly to your accommodation in Sanremo. You can also choose to use the same transfer service for your departure. If you would like the school to organise this transfer, please send us your trip itinerary and your arrival information (including the flight number and terminal number) along with your enrolment fee (if possible) no later than 1 week before arrival. The price for each single transfer from Nice Airport to Sanremo is €115 per person. If the service is requested by 2 students, even if they do not know each other and have travelled separately, the total is €165, meaning €82.50 per person.
Shared Apartments with Other Students
This type of accommodation is suited for those who would like a bit more independence but at the same time would like to be in contact with other students. The apartments usually have 2-3 bedrooms (either single or double) and shared facilities: kitchen, bathroom, TV and Internet. The sheets will be provided by the school, and you will only have to bring your own towel. The apartment will be cleaned by the cleaning service before you arrive, but during the stay you will be responsible for keeping the place clean and putting out the rubbish. For groceries, please keep in mind that on Sundays most shops are closed.
Private apartments are also available at various prices according to the apartment's features. OMNILINGUA can offer accommodation ranging from studio apartments to luxury accommodation with four rooms, a terrace and a garage. Upon request, we can supply you with further information and digital pictures of the apartments on offer. Please contact the school in advance.
All families are selected carefully and provide a friendly atmosphere which gives a great opportunity to immerse yourself in the Italian way of life. The families are usually middle aged couples or women living alone. Often the bathroom and the kitchen are shared with the family, but upon request it is possible to ask for a family, who will be able to provide a private bathroom. The accommodation with the families is on a half board basis (vegetarian options available.) Upon request it is possible to have full board by paying the appropriate supplement. The sheets will be provided by the family and you will just have to bring your own towel. Both single and double rooms are available.
If you prefer, the school can assist with accommodation arrangements with 2 or 3 star hotels that have private bathrooms or a B&B. All the hotels and boarding houses suggested by the school have an agreement with OMNILINGUA, therefore they can offer special rates for students. The payment is always made through the school. It is always advisable to make your reservation in advance, especially during the summer or during the local events, such as the Sanremo Italian Music Festival during the month of February, Easter and other events in September. Upon request, you can receive further information or a breakdown of the prices, depending on the hotel and the season.
