You share a wall with one room but we have soundproofed each room. There is a desk with printer on the landing which can be used upon request, for occasional printing. We have a dressingroom on the landing which you don't have access to.
On the ground floor, we have 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom (without bath but with shower), 1 toilet room, a fully equiped kitchen. There is also a lounge dining room which is open from the entrance hall but we tend to use this as our private space unless we all decide to eat together.
The fully decorated basement contains the laundry room which you have access to a washing machine once a week and a huge fridge (no freezer) for our guests. If you need freezer space please ask & we can access the situation. We definately have enough space for icecubes.
You are welcome to use the front garden during your stay, we have plenty types of chairs & beds & parasols. The back garden & swimming pool is off limits to guests.
Interaktion mit Gästen
We can offer you a basic help yourself breakfast: sliced bread, butter, jams, cheese, milk, Tetleys tea & instant or ground coffee.
Please note that we can't offer you croissants & baguette unless it's weekend because we work but you can always walk down to the boulangerie should you desire a naughty pain au chocolat!
My husband is French (though not typically French at all) & I am English. The kitchen is the main room where we all meet if our guests wish to sit and chat or just eat.
We enjoy meeting people from different cultures & backgrounds having travelled quite a bit ourselves. My husband is very sociable, loves practising his English & has a great sense of humour but we understand that people want their own space too. We sometimes cook & share food & wine with our guests but this is inpromptu & more likely at weekends.
We can take you for a quick tour of the local area when you arrive so you can easily find your way around. I have plenty of information on local transport to give you & can make other recommendations.
We will always be present during your stay, sometimes in the daytime, always at night.
Weitere wichtige Infos
Fast fibre internet (wifi) is available for our guests.
We are on a plane route from Orly airport so, depending upon the wind directions, and whether they are taking off or landing, you will hear some noise. There are no planes during the night. Planes are not very, very low and they do not pass directly over our house. I grew up on a flightpath so I never really notice the planes but you might. They are no louder than a passing car, my husband can offer you ear plugs ;-) but no other guest has ever commented on the planes.
We have one, mobile, heavy airconditioning unit which can be moved to descend the temperature of upstairs rooms before going to bed incase of extreme weather.
Electrical fans are can be provided.
***** We offer our rooms at cheaper rates to foreign students during term time, please contact us for more info *****
Zen quiet atmosphere. Respect other guests is important.
Smoking is fine in the garden but not in the house.
We have fulltime jobs & therefore only allow children over the age of 10 to stay if they are well behaved & calm. We may consider younger children if you're coming for a quick stop over and there are no other guests in situ. Please do ask us.
Please note, we like to know who we have in our home, so require a photocopy of your passport & utility bill.
Wenn du bis 5 Tage vor deiner Reise stornierst, erhältst du eine vollständige Rückerstattung. Wenn du innerhalb von 5 Tagen vor deiner Reise stornierst, ist die erste Nacht nicht erstattungsfähig, aber die Hälfte der Kosten für die übrigen Nächte wird zurückerstattet.

I'm originally from Cheshire in England & have been living in France for a very long time. I came here to work in Normandy & somewhere along the line met my husband. He is from Paris but he's very well travelled & is not typically French at all! He loves Great Britain and appreciates our food.
We have both travelled a lot & have mixed in international circles. We also sponsor children in Mexico & Vietnam to allow them to go to school & have free medical treatment, we've visited them both on a few occasions. Mexico is one of our favourite countries.
My family live in Spain & it would be great to be able to practice Spanish with any of our guests.
We have been offering short-term rentals for a while now. We started renting to foreign students because as I discovered myself when I moved to France, it's extremely difficult to rent without having a garante: a French person, living in France who will legally pay your rent should you default. Yep, even 75 year old French people need a garante (many can't ask their parents to assist!). In France if you want to rent you need to present a Dossier to the landlord containing all your pay slips, bank records, your parents payslips, your parents income tax returns & so much more personal stuff. Additionally, there is a huge accommodation shortage in Paris & foreign people, students & people without an income are the last people to be chosen by a landlord who will receive 20 dossiers.
So we offer a flexible, no fuss, no dossier, no garante deal to them.
Students go home during the summer holidays so we decided to rent out rooms to passing tourists & businessmen on Airbnb. So here we are!
We are open to 2 types of hosting:
1. we leave you to your own devices, you get on with what you have to do
2. we can cook you the odd meal & let you sample some good French wines (my husband is an expert) or other international wines (I am the expert here) ;-) and we'd be happy (only if you want) if you cooked us one of your typical dishes.
I'm a vegetarian but my red meat-loving husband & other people appreciate my cooking. I actually give English Cookery lessons to local people! My husband is a great cook too.
We both have full time jobs so we like to be calm & relaxed during the week but we will try to be as helpful as we can during your stay. If there is a tourist attraction you would like to visit, let us know because sometimes we can get special prices ;-)
Our past guests (mostly non-Abnb students) have so far been from:
Holland, UK, Portugal/Angola, Poland, Honduras, Malaysia, USA (Texas & Boston), Mexico, Dominican Republic, Romania, Hungry, Spain, Ukraine/Bulgaria, Italy.
Which nationality will be the next ? ! ?
