About the Homestay
We're a daughter and a mother respectively in their 30's and 60's living in the very trendy neighborhood of Père-Lachaise in the 11th district. It is located in a secured residence, the street is quiet but you will be 2 min away from the main street with all the cafes, bakeries, supermarkets, restaurant etc... The location is excellent: 5 min from Père-Lachaise and 15 min from Place de la Bastille. The 11th arrondissement in Paris is known for its excellent nightlife and dining scene. If You Love Food, Heaven Is Paris's 11th Arrondissement. There is 3 lines of subways that will take anywhere in a very short time. There is also multiple buses if you want to visit the city.
You will have your own bedroom in a spacious apartment furnished with a single bed, a desk, shelves, a chest drawer and a cloth rack. There is a bathroom and a kitchen to share. You'll have your own shelve in the kitchen and your own space in the fridge to store your food but we ask you to only do light cooking.
We preferably wish to welcome a foreign female student eager to improve her French but we also speak English and Spanish.
Please make sure you read carefully the rules of the house before booking.
Enjoy your stay!

My stay very pleasant. The apartment was at a good and quiet area and all the necessities were close; subway, bus stations, grocery stores...! Rokia and her daughter were very friendly and respectful.
I had a fantastic time with Rokia and Nora. They are very warm and welcoming right from the beginning. The location is perfect- within walking distance from many main attractions including the Louvre. Rokia and Nora were always friendly and helpful. I didn't feel as if I was away from home at all! I had a very cosy and enjoyable stay. 5 stars well deserved!
