Paul and Laetitia are very nice and hospitable persons. They have felt me very well with her company in her home. My room was nice with enough space and during the night was warm, never cold. Moreover I have my private toilette and bathroom. The dinner were very good and enough: Laetitia have cooked two typical french plates and one irish because Paul come from Ireland. Lastly there were always also the dessert at end of the meal. The only thing that I don't like was the three dog because I hate touch them and therefore in three days I never have touch them specially when I have to eat at the breakfast and at dinner.
A wonderful hospitality, better than stay in own home. Paul and Laetitia are very kind, available for any request also for people like us that don't have precise timing. Breakfast for king with all homemade products. House very pretty, clean, confortable, warm and with 3 lovely dogs that don't disturb in anyway. We would like to come back as soon as possible.
Paul and laetitia were fabulous hosts. We loved the beautiful and tranquil gardens. The food was fabulous and we really enjoyed their company every night. We had lots of local specialties. The set up is perfect with a lovely bedroom and private bathroom and breakfast room. We definitely hope to go back to see them again. A perfect trip.
Paul and Laetitia were wonderful hosts! They have surrounded their lovely cottage with beautiful flower gardens, as well as vegetables, herbs, and bees. Laetitia is a great cook, and we enjoyed dinners with them outside both nights we were there. The separate wing where our rooms were was comfortable, quiet, and very clean, with views out to the garden. There is a beautiful lake nearby, and a national park the other way. A very relaxing stay - our only regret was not staying longer!
Paul and Laetitia are two of the kindest people I have ever met, and most certainly the best hosts! They welcomed me into their home in a very difficult time of my life, and they took care of me almost as if I were their family! Everyday, we shared meals (including regional Savoyarde) and exchanged our views on life; we visited beautiful places together, took walks by the lake, drank more than a few glasses of wine (apart from one too much a kir!), and even visited their friends, who are amazing people as well.
Laetitia was incredibly kind to constantly correct my French and make sure I was learning while there, and Paul helped with everything I needed, including writing me train schedules to make sure that I would not get lost!
The garden is very picturesque - just what one can hope for from a holiday away in France's coziest department, with mountain views and a place to relax in each corner. The area around the house is really amazing (lakes, mountains, stunning little villages); I will definitely return to the Savoie, and as long as they are not booked, the homestay is already chosen!
I will always be thankful for Paul and Laetitia for their generosity and willingness to help and show me the region. I am certain that I could not have chosen a better place! :)
Merci mille fois!
To get a nice low-priced place to sleep is one thing - to get to know really nice people, always ready to help is another for us an even more importat thing. Especially as we didn`t expect it. The room is nice an clean, there is even a small refrigerator! The garden is lovely!
The whole atmosphere is very inviting. We liked the dogs very much, even though we normaly are more "cat -people".
Thanks a lot for this inriching experience!
Wir hatten einen sehr schönen Urlaub bei Paul & Letitia mit tollem Essen und netter Bewirtung. Das Zimmer war sehr geräumig und sauber, ebenso Toilette und Dusche. Den wunderschönen Garten durften wir ebenfalls uneingeschränkt nutzen.

Paul and Leatitia and their three border collies were the most wonderful hosts! I loved spending time at their welcoming home and in the beautiful gardens. They generously shared meals, their lives, and exchange in both French and English. It was a very special week for myself and my dog (le petit mouton) and one we will cherish for a long time. Definetly a very special Homestay experience!! Thank you so much! Elizabeth et Henry Matisse
Très bel accueil, convivial. Beau lieu de repos
