Hélène, your hostess, is in her sixties and knows Paris by heart and has many cultural interests. She is a passionate reader of books and enjoys endless strolls through her city. She is an eccentric lady full of character and life and someone, who in a world where no one talks anymore, stops people in the street if they intrigue her - a rare quality. She is also a gentle, sensible lady.

Her friends and family occupy the studio while Helene lives in the apartment next door with her companion. When the studio is available she loves welcoming visitors and travellers. 

Hélène loves cultural exchanges and greets you like her own friends. Passionately involved in the Parisian life, she would be pleased to advise you on your visits and tours or even join you if you if you wish and speak French. 

Hélène speaks only a little English but she manages to understand you well. If not, her daughter Annette, who is an advocate, or her son, a movie director, will be glad to assist you interpreting via the phone. A great opportunity if you wish to learn French.

Annette and Helene speak fluent Italian. Annette also speaks Spanish and can be your interpreter if necessary.
