Renee's house is charming and clean. Renee and Franck are nice hosts but I would have liked more dialogue and exchanges with them as well as more flexible rules in the house.
Renee et Franck sont de supers hôtes, j'appréhendais grandement mon voyage loin de ma famille et de mes habitudes, mais rester chez eux c'était presque comme avoir un deuxième chez soi et une deuxième famille. Ils sont très arrangeant, aident dès qu'ils le peuvent, ils sont très chaleureux et compréhensifs, de très bons conseils, amicaux, je recommenderai 100 fois leur maison pour un séjour. J'etais avec eux aussi naturelle et à l'aise que dans ma propre maison, ce sont des personnes très attachantes, tout ceci m'a amplement montré que mes craintes n'etaient pas réelles et surtout qu'il est possible de rencontrer des personnes aussi accueillantes ! La maison se situe à 15min en bus de Maynooth et 30 de Dublin, il est donc très facile de se promener dans les environs car l'arrêt de bus se trouve à 5 minutes à pieds de la maison.
La maison est bien située, calme et très bien agencée, les chambres y sont particulièrement grandes.
Un grand merci à Renee et Franck !
Living with Renee and her Family was amazing. I really enjoyed the time we spent talking about everything that crossed our mind - thanks for hosting me.
It was a very enjoyable stay, a lovely home, a welcoming and available family, very good room and quite large Bests regards
Renee a été une hote exceptionnelle ! Sa maison est très agrèable et prochz de toutes commodités. Je recommande vivement cette famille !
