About the Host, Nicolas
Hi, I'm Nicolas, 33, and I rent my living room in Paris and my mother's cottages in the south of France. I like languages and cultures. I lived several years in Berlin and in Utrecht (The Netherlands) and now I am back in Paris. Last but not least, I like meeting new people from different backgrounds and different countries and show them some of the great things that Paris has to offer. If you have questions, don't hesitate, we can chat in French, English, German or Dutch.
Just come to visit us, whether in my cozy Parisian home or in my mother's cottage in the beautiful and sunny south of France!
