OVERVIEW

Saint-Etienne is not the most famous French city appart for its football team and the warm welcoming people. Their is though a quite important university with a lot of activties for students, living here is quite cheap and not far from Lyon for those who prefer bigger cyties.  It's the perfect city for students who like countryside sport, and being outside.

Stéphanois (people living in in saint-etienne) have always worked like beavers: they are farmers, collier, lace marker, gunsmiths.

Football:  it is famous for its colour the green and the team’s name is ASSE or “les verts” = the greens. It is the most famous French football team from the late sixties which still embodies the stéphanoise identity .40 years after winning the Europe cup it still inspires vocations. The fans are also famous for livening things up and cheering in the stadium (ask your host to sing you the famous song!!).
