Lydie was extremely welcoming from the get go. She really makes you feel at home. The area surrounding her apartment gives you a fantastic taste of Paris as it’s away from the super touristy area. I’d highly recommend a stay with Lydie’s for anyone who wants to see a more authentic Paris.”

EllieDublin, Ireland

Lydie was beyond exceptional! She is the ultimate host for Paris. She’s incredibly kind and generous, very knowledgeable of this amazing city, and really takes pride in researching the very best experience for her clients. My trip would not have been the same without Lydie’s expert guidance and assistance!! If you are going to be in Paris for any length of time, booking time with Lydie is mandatory!”

BlakeUSA

Lydie’s life coaching helped me a lot. I like her calm voice, and peaceful attitude, gentle way of explaining things to me, and her not judging me. During the sessions, I gain more clarity about my life and purpose.”

EllaBeijing, China

Lydie provided a complete atmosphere of trust and comfort. After the life coaching session, I feel that it can be possible to change my perspective about myself. I’m focusing a little more daily letting go of stress. Lydie showed compassion, patience and understanding. Because of these qualities it helped me share personal feelings without fear of being judged.”

WilliamTexas, USA

Lydie helped me a lot. The holistic life coaching session with her released me from a lot of stress. She organized my thoughts and what I really wanted to say, even the part of my thoughts that I didn’t notice.”

RieHokkaido, Japan

“As part of the presentation of my research, Lydie helped me prepare my presentation to a group at a French University. She has not only improved the form (correction of French), but she also worked with me on the content. I think the result would not have been as compelling without her help.”

Chisato S.Research student, Economics and Human Resources Management, University of Gakushuin, Tokyo, Japan

“Lydie took care of proofreading and correcting my thesis and for this, she mobilized all her linguistic skills. I did very well with my doctoral studies in Paris, which is not easy for a Brazilian researcher, not acquainted with the French academic culture. So I also owe to Lydie my doctorate at the University Paris V – Sorbonne and the « very honorable with honors » evaluation.
