Young and with international appeal, Orléans is making a name for itself as a great place to enjoy your university years. Just 1hour 30min from Paris, it offers a wonderful quality of life at the heart of an area classified as a UNESCO world heritage site. 

Given its nature, in Orléans people live for the great outdoors: over 60 km of cycle paths and 160km of routes invite its residents to enjoy the city by bicycle. Its streets are also perfect for a stroll, with numerous entirely pedestrianised neighbourhoods and delightful terraces. As France’s leading pharmaceutical hub, Orléans is extremely dynamic due to its proximity to the capital and crossroads location; it therefore offers numerous opportunities for school leavers.

Regarding teaching, there are multiple institutions providing its selection of courses: its university with 16,000 students, Polytech, an art and design school and business school (ESCEM)... Les Belles Années therefore chose the city of Orléans for its Carré Céleste student residence, which is made up of one-roomed apartments and is ideally positioned in Bourgogne’s historic quarter.

Close to the centre of Orléans, the Bourgogne area has an authentic, convivial and lively feel. It has been fully renovated, and its half-timbered facades add all of their charm to the cobbled streets. Central and dynamic, it is home to numerous shops, night life spots and leisure facilities: the Halles Châtelet shopping centre, a Pathé cinema and a great selection of restaurants and bars.

The Loire flows to the south of the neighbourhood, the banks of which provide a relaxing environment for a stroll, popular among locals. The educational institutions in Orléans’ former town centre, such as its university, Beaux-Arts and IUFM are close at hand. To reach the establishments found further afield the most convenient solution is to make use of the two tram lines.
