Welcome to Nice! We're a french-american couple living in Nice since October 2012. We love Nice and especially love to share the city with our guests! We've been active members of Airbnb since March 2011 and LOVE it. We ran a B&B in Dinard, Brittany and enjoyed welcoming guests from all over the world to our quaint beachside town. We (plus our cat) welcome you to Nice!
I am a french guy from Nantes, France. I work as a cartography engineer for the National Park of Mercantour. I love getting to know and sharing my culture with guests. The park is a nature-lover's paradise; 6 tranquil valleys full of scenic hikes.
Everything here echos a long common history with Italy.
During winter I love skiing in the alps.
During autumn, I like to go abroad to discover new countries and new culture !
During summer, it's an huge pleasure to hike in the national park on the weekend and to enjoy the mediterrean beaches during the week.
During spring, i take advantage of the last snow and the quietness of "La Côte d'Azur".
I am a California-native living in France for since 2010 and in Nice since Fall 2012. I work an english teacher/translator/property manager/jill of all trades (with a university degree in Psychology) and LOVE the philosophy behind Airbnb. I enjoy hosting people, being a cultural ambassador for my native country (no, Americans do not ALL eat hamburgers, wear white tennis shoes and shop at Wal-mart, hehe) and keep a pretty open mind about the world.
I'm an out-going person with an insatiable thirst for exploring this world and sharing the joy of life with others. I want to make my life as full as possible and taste as much of it as I can. I hope the end of my life feels like a full stomach after a good meal, full of rich experiences.
Travel and seeing the world is a huge priority in our life which is why we always seem to hit it off with Airbnb guests. Some favorite travel memories are...sipping airag in a Mongolian ger at sunrise, hitching a ride on a donkey cart in Western China, sleeping on a hardseat for a 28 hour train ride (to save $5), diving with manta rays, eating guinea pig, silk worms and pig blood soup, galloping a horse through the Gobi desert, trekking through the remote jungles of Borneo (where we met), sleeping in a barn in rural Switzerland, going to Oktoberfest (with my 77 year old grandpa) and completing a triathalon. But honestly---travel stories are best told over a glass of rose :)
