*******************************************************************

When visiting you want to live like a French, a Parisian not being “only” a tourist. You’d like to avoid some “culture shock”, you ‘d like to beat the “prejudice” against the French and Parisians, you’d like to discover what made French meal part of the Unesco patrimony, you’d like to shop like a Parisian, discuss with shop keepers, find why all chickens are not the same and price can “largely” vary, why French put a lot of pride on food origins, why they select their little shops with great care…

 

Behind Architecture and Art, you’d like to discover the French History, French culture, how Paris became Paris

 

Then book with me, Martinn, born Parisian “ a while ago”, having worked and lived in the 2nd since the late 60ies, attending workshops on cooking and history all the time, strolling Paris everyday, visiting exhibitions regularly for my own pleasure and to share with you.  I have lived in the USA and since my family came back, have been immersed in the Parisian English community. I know what culture differences are, what can shock you and why you could shock a French ; can help you easily avoid  some difficult issues and help you enjoy your stay from A to Z, have a  real experience and feel part of the community.

 

I Look forward to sharing my beloved Paris with you.

Martinn, your host

Almost French by Sarah Turnbull

 

 P 101

 “… But he most wonderful thing about our new apartment is the location, smack in the city center, within walking distance of almost everything – The Marais, the Tuileries gardens, the Left Bank, the Louvre. Most fantastic of all, we’ll be just around the corner from the lively market street, rue Montorgueil, a picturesque half-mile stretch of fromageries, fish shops, florists, bakeries, and fruits and vegetables sellers who bugle their bargains six days a week. The street is the main artery of a rectangle-shaped quartier that’s unique in the inner city because it is entirely paved and closed to regular traffic. This only heightens the village feel to the neighborhood, the impression that it is somehow self-contained and separate even though it’s an intrinsic part of Paris…”
