Colette is an English teacher in Paris, originally from California. Jerome is French and works for a bank. We love music, reading, hiking, good food and traveling. We have restored a hundred year old farmhouse in Auvergne France, have 3 grown kids, one living in the USA now, and have also hosted 6 teenagers from around the world doing year-long international exchanges with AFS. We regularly rent rooms in our home to university students ourselves, so we understand how to get along with others in a living space.
