About the Homestay
We live in the 15th, a nice district, reassuring and sported, we go on foot to Montparnasse, the Luxembourg Gardens, the Eiffel Tower, etc. Our apartment is accessible by a very secure hall. There is also a caretaker in the building. Our apartment is large and very lively (like a small domestic museum ;-) even though our 3 children left home for their studies. The eldest is a researcher and lives in Berlin; the youngest is an artist and lives in Marseille and the youngest is a young violinist who leaves to live in Paris but approaches the Cnsmdp. My husband is an architect and draftsman and I am a journalist and author.
We used to welcome in a very generous spirit friends of our children or family of all nationalities, the last was a young Hungarian whose accommodation had been canceled at the last moment, he stayed 5 days and has many improved his French to our contact!
The 2 rooms available are next to each other, large, overlooking a lovely garden (we hear birds!); one of the two bedrooms has a private bathroom with shower, sinks, storage space.
- piano if needed (pro)
2 very very nice details:
- from time to time I have good plans for entries
(concerts, museums, masterclass, etc. which I will make you enjoy with pleasure if the opportunity arises during your stay).
- I offer the cinema as part of a French course fee (we will see a film together in French or subtitled in French, and it is then the occasion of a language course, written and oral ! Progress assured!).
- Internet Access
Bedrooms available for booking
