My name is Patrick. I live with my 9-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, a night guard 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 student 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, a TV set and a free and unlimited wifi connection to the Internet. There is a piano.
My son Louis is a bright and very friendly child. He learns the harpsichord at the music conservatory and does fencing as a sport. Just as I am, he is very enthusiastic about welcoming guests from other countries at home.

    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 !

    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.

    Mi estancia con Monsieur Patrick (de cariño Don Patrick) y su hijo Louis (de 8 años) fue maravillosa. Don Patrick es una persona muy amable, muy paciente, ya que mi viaje fue para practicar el francés y obtuve mucho apoyo de su parte. Porque me daba explicaciones detalladas sobre que metro tomar hasta donde quería yo ir, me explicó los lugares más famosos de París y como llegar y regresar, además como no me gusta salir sola por las noches en una ciudad que no conozco, me acompañaron a ciertos lugares. Es una excelente persona que apoya mucho a sus invitados. Las cenas que prepara además de ricas son saludables y hacía tipos de comidas que a mi me agradaban (porque decidí contratar el servicio de cena), es un gran ser humano, amable, paciente, respetuoso, servicial, comunicativo y que da mucho apoyo si se lo pides.
    Su hijo Louis es un niño alegre, platicador (me ayudó mucho a aprender palabras que no sabía), dulce y acomedido.
    Respetan tu espacio y realmente me quedo con una gran opinión de ellos, pienso volver con ellos en la próxima vez que regrese.
    Una cosa importante: el departamento está en una ubicación excelente para trasladarte rápidamente a los famosos lugares de París. Me hicieron sentir que era parte de su familia, y efectivamente desarrollamos una bonita amistad que a pesar de la distancia tan grande, porque yo vivo en México, seguiremos en comunicación, porque les tomé mucho cariño.
    Además es un gran conocedor de París y eso fue de más apoyo. Es traductor, habla un poco de español, inglés bastante bien y su idioma a la perfección.
    Mr. Patrick and Louis (his 8yr son) are great persons, very helpful and attentive besides very respectful. They respect the space of the guests and give a lot of help for visiting the famous places in Paris, Mr. Patrick knows a lot about Paris, he's a man with a lot of culture and we expend great time together, besides they help a lot me with my French. I decided to dinner with them and he's really a good cooker! He pleased me sometimes with some special meals!
    He was very supportive helping with the directions of what train take to visit the famous places in Paris. I'm very satisfied and happy for knowing them.
    So don't hesitate to arrive with them besides their apartment is in a good location, near to the famous places.
    They are great human beings!
    I'll be back definitely!
