About the Homestay
The ideal way to discover France and its people is by living with a local family and sharing their way of life. Our beautiful designer home is located in a typical french neighborhood that is safe and family friendly. A pleasant environment surrounded by greens, parks, local market, bakeries and ideally located with easy public transportation to center of Paris in just 15 minutes.
We offer our quest a warm hospitable stay in a unique, quality environment.
On a separate level of our house, we offer 2 cosy independent furnished rooms,
1) bedroom with its en-suite bathroom
2) bedroom with a shared bathroom
3) Adjacent to our home, we also offer:
1 bedroom apartment, fully furnished providing privacy and independence.
Ideal for a student or expats on a-long term stay*.
Full equipped kitchen w/washing machine, microwave, kettle, coffee maker, dishwasher, fridge, oven and vitro-ceramic stove.
Living & dining room
Private bathroom with bathtub, sink and toilet, in addition, a second WC.
Dishes, cutlery, bed linen, as well as towels bath, are provided.
We are an International family who have traveled around the world and have appreciation of and interest about other cultures. Helping and providing a unique environment to a foreign quest exposes our children to understand the importance of learning other languages and appreciating different cultures. Even if your level of french is limited, spending time with us, or going on day trips to visit many of the beautiful sights of and around Paris remains one of the best ways of improving your comprehension and vocabulary.
We take pleasure in making delicious meals and can adapt if you have food allergies. Eating & chatting at the family dinner table remains one of the best ways of interacting with our quest.
We particularly like to host young students studying aboard and solo travelers because we understand their needs. I find it challenging to help young guest immerse completely to a new culture and language which is different from theirs.
We hope to have the pleasure of hosting you soon.

Re home stay with Elizabeth.
We didn't see much of the family until they returned from holiday. It was lovely to meet them and we'd like to spend more time with them another time. They seem like a lovely family.
Very kind family!
I always received help when I wanted to know something.
If I go to Paris once again, I definitely know where! :)
I am genuinely glad of staying in her house! Also I have to admit that there are too many things common between me and Mrs Elizabeth, I am so pleased I have made amazing friends in Paris especially her, I just feel I was lucky that randomly selected one homestay on website and got on very very well, not everyone can be as lucky as me! And I have to say her flourished my trip completely, the plan her made for me everyday for avoiding me got lost and the food the show we have had! I felt more like being a cultural participator more than a tourist. Thanks Elizabeth!!! She is a nice landlady and great mother!
我很荣幸可以和Elizabeth 夫人和她的家人度过了很开心的时光， 我很喜欢她的为人和性格， 她待人非常热心，虽然我们只相处短短一周，但是在她的带领下，我觉得自己真正意义上的体验了巴黎，而不只是一个游客。因为我没有plan，所以她每天早晨给我制定计划告诉我哪里值得去哪里我会喜欢而不只是游客区，希望想要真正体验法国文化风情的朋友选择他们！
Staying by Elizabeth is a very nice experience. The family is welcoming, multi-ethnical environment and very tasty and healthy food. Reccomendable to spend a special holiday in Paris.
Chez Elizabeth vous ferez une très belle experience. La famille est accueillante, on est dans une ambiance multiethnique et on mange de la nourriture très savoreuse et saine. Reccomandable pour passer un bon séjour à Paris.
I had a great time staying with Elizabeth! The room was clean and tidy, with bathroom facilities. The area is secured, not encountered any problem when coming back late in the evenings. Elizabeth is such a lovely lady and the family was very friendly, I felt like I was a part of the family and had a such a good time with them during Xmas and new year. Thank you so much for letting me staying with you and definitely will recommend this place to my friends!

Elizabeth was the perfect host. Her family accommodated my French with great patience, and took my eccentricities in good humour. I am vegetarian, which they also accommodated very happily - no mean feat in Paris! When I return to Paris, I will definitely call upon Elizabeth's family again.
Elizabeth était l'hôtesse parfaite. Sa famille se sont occupés de moi avec patience et ils prenaient mes eccentricités en bonne humeur. Je suis végétarien, auquel ils se sont adaptés facilement - pas une mince affaire à Paris ! Quand je reviendrai à Paris, je resterai certainement chez sa famille encore.
Mon fils paul a été ravi de son séjour chez vous ,merci pour votre acceuil.
