    We loved meeting Anne-Sophie was very kind to us. He gave us a lot of information about the places we wanted to visit and public transportation that we needed to go. The house is newly renovated with easy access to bus and train stops. Anne-Sophie offered us a good breakfast every day and in short we were very satisfied with her, I recommend her as a host. Thanks for everything Anne-Sophie.
    Nos encantó conocer a Anne-Sophie fue muy amable con nosotros. Nos dio mucha información sobre los lugares que queríamos visitar y transporte público que nos hacía falta para ir. La casa esta recien reformada de facil acceso a paradas de autobús y tren. Anne-Sophie nos ofreció un buen desayuno todos los días y en resumen estuvimos muy satisfechos con ella, la recomiendo como anfitrióna. Gracias por todo Anne-Sophie.

    My sister and I enjoyed our stay at Anne-Sophie’s beautiful apartment, she is a wonderful host. We had many interesting chats and we were made to feel very welcome. The apartment is close to buses and trains, so it is very easy to travel to all parts of London. We would not hesitate to stay again.

    It was wonderful to stay with a charming host who was friendly and full of local information. The little things are so important - like making a cup of tea whenever you wanted, an extremely comfortable bed, space in the room, a separate bathroom, meeting the family, washing clothes, easy access to buses and trains, and the lift! Made me fall in love with the 'real' London.

    Ma fille et moi avons eu beaucoup de plaisir à séjourner quatre jours à Londres chez Anne-Sophie. La chambre est confortable, le quartier verdoyant est bien relié au centre-ville. Mais surtout Anne-Sophie nous accueille chaleureusement, nous prodigue de judicieux conseils, et échange volontiers avec nous, en français ou en anglais, autour du délicieux petit déjeuner ! Nous recommandons vivement ce choix.

    A 60 ans, ce fut mon premier séjour en Angleterre accompagnée de ma petite fille de 11 ans, alors qu'elle ne parle pas anglais, moi très peu et nous en gardons un excellent souvenir. Nous avons été très bien accueillies par Anne-Sophie dans un appartement spacieux, claire, calme, propre et d'un accès facile au centre de Londres. Il y avait de multiple choix pour le petit déjeuner et nous avons aussi très apprécié les repas en famille, tant pour la nourriture saine et équilibrée que les échanges puisque toute la famille parle Français. Anne-Sophie a été pleine de délicates attentions afin de nous guider tant pour les transports dans Londres que nos choix de sortie. Ne pas hésiter à choisir Anne-Sophie que je recommande vivement.
