About the Homestay
Warm and hospitable stay in a unique town house located in a quiet and safe neighbourhood in Paris SW. Easy transportation to central Paris within 20 mn. The house is part of a common hold and is located at the end of a blind alley with its own private garden. It has got all the city facilities around and everything else you could need close by. Your host is retired, French and English speaking, with years of experience in hosting foreign students, professionals or tourists from all over the world, on short/long term period for a full immersion in French culture, customs and language.
The great reviews received from several of my guests speak for themselves.
The "room under the sky" occupies the whole 2nd floor of my house. It is bright (with two roof windows ) and large (about 20 m²) . There is another single bed which can welcome another guest, fees to be set accordingly in that case.
The shower is private in the spare bathroom which is not en suite to the bedroom.
Sheets and bath towels are provided.
Cleaning of the shower and room is done once a week.
There is a launderette across the street for your personal wash.
I do not prepare breakfast but I keep the kitchen stocked with coffee, tea, orange juice, jam, toasts or cereals and milk. I am happy to help with any special request you may have.
For stays over a week, limited access to the kitchen can be negotiated for sandwiches and/or salads, the use of the refrigerator and the gas plates. Otherwise, you will find ready cooked meals from next door bakeries, take aways, pizzerias or restaurants.
A traditional French dinner can be prepared for you according to your taste and food habits.
French classes can be granted, price determined according to the level of understanding and the number of lessons requested.

I had the most enjoyable stay at Laura's house.My hostess was extremely attentive to all my needs and I was made feel very welcomed. The room was beautiful, full of light and I had a private bathroom too and provided an access to all necessary things.
Laura's house is situated in lovely neighbourhood, safe and there are several metro stations as well as various bus routes running through it. It is very easy to get anywhere in Paris. There are plenty of food shops of different kind: traditional, organic and artisan.
Laura is a true Parisian and can help you with all the directions to any place you want to visit. She helped me with all my gift shopping to by recommending the local artisan and speciality shops.
I had a unique experience of staying in Laura house and an unforgettable holidays in France and highly recommend you to stay at her place.
Laura was a great host and is highly recommended by me!
I stayed for four nights and really enjoyed the experience at Chez Laura. As this was my first trip to Paris, I was unsure of how the trip would go. Laura helped to make it a great experience with her warm personality and good organisation. We had plenty of insightful conversations together each evening. Laura recommended the best way to plan my visit and directed me towards an amazing bakery nearby, which became an important part of my daily routine.
Some small things- I am quite tall, so at times it was often difficult to navigate the route from bedroom to bathroom. The shower water wasn't exactly warm in the mornings, but it was nice to have my own bathroom. Laura has quite a few small dogs as well, which is important to be aware of!
I has the most wonderdul star with Laura in Paris. Laura was friendly, always helpful, but not intrusive. Everything was clean and comfortable. Moreover, those who enjoy intellectual conversations in a wide range of issues, particularly in different languages, would appreciate their stay even more.
A very friendly and helpful lady in a beautiful house and amazing garden. The facilities provided were very good. I would very much recommend this Homestay!
