“Lydie is a wonderful host, and her home was the perfect place to stay in Paris. The room is exactly as Lydie describes, lovely and authentic, and it was great to come home to a clean, comfortable space at the end of every day. The neighborhood is extremely safe, and everything is within reach.”

Laura, New York, USAJuly 2016

“Lydie was extremely welcoming from the get go! Her apartment is just as lovely as it looks in the pictures. The bedroom was bright and spacious with the comfiest beds and pillows. 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 :)”

Ellie, Dublin, Ireland May 2015

Oksana, Toronto, CanadaAugust 2015

“This was certainly one of the best homestay experiences I ever had. Not only that Lydie’s flat was in the perfect location for me, very pretty and immaculately clean! What happened is that I found a new friend. Lydie showed me around her neighbourhood, proofed to be a perfect hostess and guide to the city. She has innumerable tips on hand for her visitors, and has great taste. I really loved my stay in Paris and will surely be back and stay at Lydie’s. Highly recommended for those who would like to have an authentic experience of Paris – off the beaten track.”

Susanne, Graz, AustriaNovember 2014

“This is definitely the perfect experience for my journey in Paris. Having nice conversations with Lydie was amazing. She is absolutely nice and chic French lady. The room is exactly as the photos show and it offers everything you need, like hair drier, umbrella, traveling books, towels, etc. Lydie is the sweetest person. The apartment’s location is also fantastic, metro line 3 is within 3 min walk and it will get you anywhere you want. Also there is an organic supermarket just downstair the apartment, quite convenient.”

“Lydie was an exceptional host and her home was a wonderful place to spend time. The neighborhood is interesting and nice. Lydie was very good at recommending good places to go and making sure that one is comfortable and happy. I stayed for almost a month and grew to love the space! ”

Alexander, Austin, Texas, USAJune 2018

“Lydie is an amazing host! She helped us since the beginning, she gave us very specific indications and recommended many places to go. She is such a sweet and interesting person and no doubt the best host I have ever found in homestaying.”

Daniela & Guido, Bogota, ColumbiaNovembre 2018

“We enjoyed our stay with Lydie very much. Instructions to find her address in Paris were clear and easy to follow, and much appreciated. We thought Gambetta was a charming suburb. Lydie was very helpful in introducing us to local features, transport, gardens and specialty shops, which helped to make our stay enjoyable and stress free. Our accommodation was very neat and clean. We loved staying with Lydie. ”

Helen, Baranduda, AustraliaMay 2015

“Lydie is an excellent host, very friendly and nice. She is also very helpful, organised and diligent and works hard to make ones stay very pleasant. Her flat has a good atmosphere and the neighbourhood feels safe, and convenient with the metro, a supermarket, restaurants, and cafes close by. Lydie’s flat is clean, and quiet and the bed is very comfortable. Also the kitchen, living room, bedroom and shower are excellent. I really enjoyed my stay and I would recommend anyone to stay with Lydie, because she is a lovely person and her flat has everything one could ask for.”

Nathaniel, London, UKApril 2015

“This was my first homestay experience and I’m enthusiastic. Lydie’s home was very pretty and perfectly clean (all the equipment was new and clean) and at the same time Lydie has been a perfect host, very kind and very helpful! Lydia speaks excellent perfect Italian. The location is very convenient with all kind of transport possibilities. I can’t recommend Lydie’s apartment highly enough and would be very happy to stay with her again next time I visit Paris.”

Teresa, Rüschlikon, SwitzerlandJanuary 2015

“Lydie is a wonderful host! I was super happy and very lucky to stay at her place, Lydie was very kind and very helpful. I felt very much at home! The location is very convenient with all kind of transport possibilities.”

Safia, Berlin, GermanyOctober 2014

“Wow. Lydie. Was. Awesome. Can’t say enough how happy we were with this outdoor market experience. It was the highlight of our trip. Lydie was like an old friend that we hadn’t seen in awhile. And that was just after the first 5 minutes. She showed so much patience with the kids and made it fun for all of us. I will never forget the picnic in a hidden urban park. This was what I hoped to find on our family trip to Paris and thanks to Lydie we did.”

Blake, USAAugust 2015

“When we were sorting through our pictures from the trip, Aga and I both agreed that the tour with Lydie was the best part of our whole trip! We really had a great time. Aga particularly loved getting the local advice. We went back to one of the restaurants Lydie suggested. It was our favourite restaurant in Paris, we went back twice. We are so grateful to Lydie for making it so special. She is not only offering a food tour, she is offering memories and that’s very special. Also, the food was wonderful.”

Danielle Johnson, UK April 2014

“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!”

Doug, USAAugust 2015

“Lydie helped me a lot. The 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.”

Rie, Hokkaido, JapanOctobre 2018

“Lydie provided a complete atmosphere of trust and comfort. After the 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. Lydie stayed positive and caring which helped me to express memories that are normally ignored. Lydie is a very compassionate person and offers much positive energy.”

William, Texas, USANovember 2018

“Lydie’s 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 when I say something out of my mind. During the sessions, I gain more clarity about my life and purpose. Regarding my limitations, Lydie helped me identity their roots, and know how to deal with them. Also, this session really changed my mind about the ways of doing or achieving things. The homework she gives me is also really useful, as I can practice changes every day and see real progress take place in my life.”

Ella, Beijing, ChinaNovember 2018

J’ai trouvé que Lydie posait les bonnes questions pour comprendre ma personnalité et que son approche était sincère et pleine de compassion. J’ai retiré de cette séance la confirmation et l’identification de certains points de blocage qui me limitent dans mes actions.

Jérôme, Paris, FranceDécembre 2018

“Je voulais adresser mon instabilité émotive et ma gestion du stress difficile. J’étais un peu tendue par l’idée de devoir parler de moi et de mes faiblesses. Mais Lydie a réussi à me mettre à l’aise immédiatement. Une voix bienveillante, de la douceur dans les yeux, il m’était impossible de me sentir jugée et donc mal à l’aise. J’ai trouvé que cette approche, nouvelle pour moi, était constructive. À la suite de cette heure avec Lydie, des bonnes résolutions prennent place dans mon quotidien car elles me semblent désormais réalisables.”

Madeline, Nancy, FranceOctobre 2018

“Je suis très contente de cette séance. Je sais que j’en tirerai de nombreux bénéfices. Dès le départ, Lydie a su créer un environnement serein dans lequel je me sentais en sécurité. Je me suis sentie à l’aise dès le début et Lydie a réussi à me faire exprimer des choses dont je ne pensais pas du tout parler au cours de la séance. J’ai senti son écoute attentive, bienveillante, et cela m’a aidé à trouver des réponses en moi. Je voudrais la remercier pour sa gentillesse, sa bienveillance, et pour avoir su créer cet espace sécurisant.”

Sophie, Paris, FranceNovembre 2018

“Pour obtenir ma carte de séjour, j’ai eu besoin de déposer beaucoup de dossiers auprès de l’administration française. J’ai confié à Lydie le soin de les corriger. Comme elle a elle-même vécu dans des pays étrangers, elle sait s’adapter à tous les besoins des étrangers. Elle donne des conseils avisés et un soutien efficace. Elle m’a aidé de façon très professionnelle, et je l’en remercie.”

Reiko N.Photographe, Paris, France

“La qualité linguistique d’une thèse est aussi importante que le sujet étudié. Lydie s’est occupée de la relecture et de la correction de ma thèse et pour ce faire, elle a mobilisé toutes ses compétences linguistiques. J’ai très bien réussi mes études doctorales à Paris, ce qui n’est pas évident pour une chercheuse brésilienne très éloignée de la culture académique française. Alors, je dois aussi à Lydie mon titre de docteur à l’Université Paris V – Sorbonne ainsi que l’évaluation “très honorable avec les félicitations du jury.”

Ione Valle RibeiroProfesseur de Sociologie de l’Education, Université Fédérale de Santa Catarina, Brésil

“Dans le cadre de la présentation de mes travaux de recherche, Lydie m’a aidé à préparer une intervention dans une grande université française. Elle a non seulement amélioré la forme (correction du français), mais a également travaillé avec moi en profondeur sur le fond. Je pense que le résultat n’aurait pas été aussi convaincant sans son intervention.”

Chisato S.Etudiante en Master d’Economie et de gestion des Ressources Humaines, Université de Gakushuin, Tokyo, Japon

“Lydie m’a aidée à corriger le français de mon mémoire de Master en Art. Elle a corrigé non seulement la grammaire, mais aussi des expressions en détails. Elle a une grande connaissance sur l’art, j’ai pu me fier entièrement à elle. Le jour même du dépôt du mémoire, jusqu’au dernier moment, elle m’a aidée, je la remercie sincèrement. Le fait que Lydie était là pour m’aider a été un grand soutien pour que je puisse finir mon mémoire. Merci beaucoup Lydie !”

ReikoEtudiante en Master en Art, Université Paris 8, France

“J’ai demandé à une connaissance de me mettre en contact avec une personne capable de relire et corriger ma thèse de doctorat, et Lydie m’a été recommandée. Elle a non seulement corrigé toutes les erreurs de français, mais elle a aussi soulevé des questions très pertinentes sur le contenu, et je lui en suis reconnaissant. En outre, les délais étaient très courts, mais Lydie est une professionnelle qui sait travailler rapidement. Je pense que vous aimerez travailler avec Lydie sur tous vos contenus en français.”
