Homestay options in Geneva?

Hello,

I was just wondering if any of you guys knew of a homestay organization or even specific houses in Geneva that allow for homestay. I'm going to be in Geneva for 9 weeks in the summer and would like to stay with a family rather than in a dorm. Does anyone know of such an organization in Geneva or the surrounding area?

Thanks

Try AirBNB for Geneva.

Also Wimdu.

Are Homestays / Hosting common in Switzerland?

Re: Homestay options in Geneva?

Not sure what of your exact definition of homestay, but there is this organisation that pairs people looking for a room with others (families, retirees, etc.) sometimes in payment for work or small chores.

Does anyone know if the University of Geneva has a list of homestay/residence options? I'm going to be attending French courses at the UNIGE and was wondering if there is a list that maybe they have?
