Gap Year in France

If it’s paid work you’re after, no problem: France has a strong tourist industry and you could find work as a chalet host in the Alps, a receptionist at a camp on the South coast, or a childcare assistant in the more peaceful west. Hunt out the offers that include accommodation so that you can save your wages for the next destination on your list.

If you have an interest in childcare, or experience with children, and you want a place on a language course, you could also consider au pair work.
