It was a pleasure to meet and host Fred. Communication was easy, he was respectful of the place and adapted very fast. He's more than trustworthy, since we went for a holiday and left him alone and there wasn't a moment I would worry about anything. I found the place tidy when we came back. Good experience !

Frederic has been a perfect host. He left the apartment all clean & tidy and it has been a pleasure to exchange with him before his stay. He speaks both English & French, which made things easy. Highly recommendable!

Frederic a été un hôte parfait. L'appartement a été laissé en ordre et tout propre et ça a réellement été un plaisir d'échanger avec lui avant son séjour. Il parle très bien le français, ce qui peut rendre les choses plus faciles. Hôte à recommander!
