About the Homestay
My name is Patrick. I live with my 11-year-old son in a 72m2 flat located at the heart of the lively Chinese district of Belleville.
I propose an 11m2 single bedroom furnished with single bed, a desk, bookshelves and a large wardrobe. There is a bathroom to share. Bedclothes and towels are provided. The apartment is on the fourth floor and accessible with a lift. It is located in a secured residence with access codes, a caretaker and surveillance cameras. The flat is quiet with the sun shining in and within 5mn walk from the Buttes-Chaumont Park, a favourite spot with joggers, including myself. It is within 10mn metro ride to the Hôtel de Ville, Notre Dame, the Centre Pompidou and the Musée Picasso; 15mn to the Latin Quarter, the Louvre, Montmartre and the Sacré Coeur.
All facilities (metro station, doctors, pharmacies, supermarkets, greengrocers, bakeries, food markets, restaurants, bars) are at hand, within 5mn walk.
We preferably wish to welcome a foreign female studentor tourist eager to improve her French and discover French culture and cuisine. As a linguist (I taught languages in France and abroad and am now a translator) I will be pleased to help our guests with the French language. I can also guide them through Paris and its famous museums. My family are gourmets and I cook traditional French dishes: meals are optional with extra charge. The flat is provided with a washing-machine and a free and unlimited wifi connection to the Internet. Guests can use all kitchen appliances in the kitchen (fridge, oven, induction hob, microwave, blender ...) as well as the hair dryer.
There is a piano and a harpsichord.
My son Louis is a bright and very friendly child. He learns the harpsichord at the Paris music conservatory and does football as a sport. Just as I am, he is very enthusiastic about welcoming guests from other countries at home.

My stay at Patrick's house was excellent. I highly recommend this host. The room is as it is shown in the photos. Patrick is very kind, attentive and always willing to help or advise if you need it.
Thanks, Patrick for everything! Without a doubt, if I return to Paris, I would stay at your house again
I’ve been stay at Patrick place for 2 weeks. He’s very very nice, friendly and helpful with everything! The room is comfortable and tidy. The location is good and really near to metro station with line 2 and 11. Reasonable travelling time to everywhere to Paris. A carrefour city is just across the road and many restaurants nearby. It’s been a lovely journey in Paris and stay here make it more wonderful! I would recommend and if I come to Paris again I want to stay here again.
Patrick est une merveilleuse personne. J'y ai aimé les jours était avec lui et Louis. Je recommande pour toutes les filles qui veulent apprendre la langue et la culture française.
Patrick é uma pessoa maravilhosa. Eu amei os dias em que estive com ele e o Louis. Eu recomendo para todas as meninas que gostariam de aprender o idioma e a cultura francesa.
Loved to stay in Patrick’s place. Got many tips on the traveling by him. His place is convenient to anywhere in the city.
I very much enjoyed my stay in Patrick's home. Patrick is a wonderful host, very helpful and accommodating. He and his son Louis are also quite nice and easy going. The neighborhood is a great location with easy access to the metro/the bus and all of central Paris.
Merci encore Patrick !
Very friendly family. I had a great time with patrick and louis in paris.
Patrick y Luis son adoraveis. Me senti muy tranquila. Es muy cerca del metro. Patrick fue pronto para todas las informaciones que necessite. Agradesco la estadia.
My month long stay with Patrick and Louis was beyond amazing. I felt welcome when I first walked in the door. The room is exactly as pictured - it was private with an amazing view. Per my request, Patrick only spoke in French. He was patient and helpful with my french as well. I didn't want to leave at the end of the month. When I return to Paris, I hope Patrick and Louis can host me again!
Je ne aurais pas pu demander plus. Je suis restée chez Patrick et Louis pendant un mois. Le séjour s'est très bien passé. Je me suis toujours sentie bienvenue. Patrick était patient avec mon français et il m'a beaucoup aidé. Le quartier est génial - pas touristique mais ça bouge quand même :) Quand je retourner à Paris, je aimerais bien rester chez Patrick et Louis.
