About the Homestay
Agnès and Laurent live in Arcueil (1km South of Paris) with their children (Anna, Matteo and Leonor).
The house is very well located: 2 minutes walk to the metro station (RER B: Laplace); 10 minutes from the center of Paris by metro or bicycle; and a quiet area with charming houses and gardens around.
The house is quite big with a beautiful garden. It counts a large living room+ kitchen which opens on the terrace and garden, a quiet reading room on the first floor, six bedrooms and two bathrooms. "au fond du jardin", there is an "atelier" with a tennis table.
Agnes works in Paris as a banker and Laurent is a musician, working at home. The three children go to school. Anna loves meeting people from another culture: she spent 1 year in a family in Ireland when she was 15; she studied one year in Bergen (Norway) thanks to Erasmus. Matteo enjoys sport (basket, tennis table, badminton...). He is a student in Concordia university, Montreal (Canada). Leonor is a lively 14y girl. She loves being with her friends and loves sport (tennis, basketball, swimming,...). The all love cooking, therefore dinners are always delicious in this family!
We recently adopted Ouper, a golden retriever, who loves big hugs and long hikes in the nature!

This guest awarded the host 5 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
I stayed with Agnes and her family for six weeks, I couldn’t have asked for a better stay. Agnes and her family were so welcoming. I didn’t get to meet Matteo but the girls were lovely. They were all very patient with me and helped me to improve my French hugely. The food was yummy and the bedroom was spacious and comfortable, and I really felt a part of the family. The house is so close to the RER station and it is just a short train journey to the centre of Paris. I highly recommend!
C'est une famille magnifique! Ils sont très gentils, disponibles, souriants et toujours prêts à vous aider.
La chambre est fantastique avec tous les conforts possibles.
J’ai eu une expérience MAGNIFIQUE et j’ai passé des moments vraiment agréables avec toute la famille.
Le quartier est dans une zone géniale, la maison est près de la gare (deux minutes à pied). Même si Arcueil n’est pas Paris il faut juste cinq minutes en métro pour y arriver.
Je les recommande sans aucune hésitation!
