Danièle

Single woman, energetic pensioner

I love to cook, I worked in the hotel business for a long time and love to welcome guests into my home. I live in an apartment close to the city centre and I will cook you quality food and welcome you with great pleasure!

 

Gaëlle and Fred

Couple with no children

We are a couple who love to meet new people and share our daily life with students from around the world. We live in a nice flat with a little garden 15 minutes away from Accent Français.

Isabelle

 

I live on my own in the city centre, in a modern area, close to the shopping mall and a 10 minute walk from the school and the famous Place de la Comédie. I love to meet and welcome new people and would be delighted to show you around the city and to take you with me at the weekend! I like music, art, yoga, dancing and good food.
