I stayed at Claudia's house last summer, 57 nights, for learning French at a summer school in La Sorbonne-Paris University. It was a wonderful experience to practice French with Claudia and her daughters, watch French TV shows and children movies, taking care of her cats, Tito and Caramel, together. And most of all, Claudia's cuisine is wonderful! I was always happy to join with Claudia's guests and had a nice meal with them:) Light breakfast is served and it is delicious.
On the other hand, if you are a single girl traveling or studying in Paris and having concerns over your security, Claudia's neighborhood is culturally diverse but still a nice, safe (sweet) neighborhood. You might want to go back home before it gets dark because a) it is not safe for a single girl to hang out at night no matter in which country b) the bus schedule will be reduced to 1time/per hour after 8:00 pm, which means that if you miss the bus you will have to wait for another hour. Therefore, If you want to watch a ballet show/ a theater play/ dine at a restaurant at night, these conditions might restrain your experience in Paris.
I was made to feel very welcome and I enjoyed my stay immensely. Lovely family environment, easy access to public transport and to local shops.
I really loved this experience, the best I have had so far! I spent 3 nights in Paris. Claudia is lovely person, very helpful. She lives in a big house with terrace together with her girls and three cute cats :) She gave me so many information how to spend free time in Paris, so many tips I didnt received even in any information centre.
You will feel like at home with Claudia. I highly recommend her as ýour host!
Claudia is wonderful! She helped us with navigating the metro and advice on sightseeing! She is so welcoming- we felt like family! We would go stay with her again and would recommend her to anyyone! Her English is fantastic- can't say enough positive things about her- she is great! Her place is outside Paris and requires a metro ticket and a bus ticket, but the welcoming environment and advise, as well as the French culture we experienced living with her made it more than worth it!
Claudia friendly and helpful and accomodation quiet and private. The distance out of Paris centre taught me lots about bus and metro use. My days were full, out and about all day, making the most of my time in Paris despite the unusually very wet weather.
I stayed for 4 nights in Claudia's home, a week ago, and it was such a special experience. It was my first time in Paris and who to better acquaint me of Paris and the culture but Claudia. Claudia gives you tips on where to do and what to do. Pushes you to know Paris in a tourist and local's eyes. Claudia's family is warm and very open to new people and sharing culture and experiences! The fresh warm baguettes and morning coffee is a cherry on top too! Thank you Claudia and will definitely visit again!
The stay with Claudia and her family was wonderful and i liked it alot. She is very helpful and her house is near from the metro line 9, you juz have to take a bus to reach the metro station. Also her light breakfast was good and i enjoyed it before leaving for the city every morning. I would recommend all to stay at her place as it is near from the centre and also reasonable than the hotels in the city centre.
La experiencia fue muy buena.Claudia siempre fue muy amable y me ayudo en todo lo que necesite con respecto a mi estancia. Se esforzo siempre por entenderme, puesto que yo no hablo frances y tampoco hablo ingles.
Claudia is a very nice friend!! I really enjoyed to stay whit her.
Claudia and her home stay were great. She was more than helpful at every point. We did not use Google map as her directions were more than sufficient to go around n explore the city. In all it was a pleasant stay with her.we definitely recommend to stay at her place
