Julie – Phil and Christine Review
Stayed in October 2019
Julie was a wonderful host and excellent french teacher.
I’m closer to beginner and my spouse is closer to intermediate. She was very patient and flexible to our differing needs.
She gave us her whole apartment to ourselves which is conveniently located in the middle of old Avignon. It’s a bright, airy space with high ceilings and a fully equipped kitchen.
Julie took us on some fabulous outings to some medieval villages and to Chateau Neuf de Pape for a very memorable wine tasting in an ancient cellar. I can’t recommend her highly enough.
Julie is also a gourmet cook and made us many delightful meals with foods from the local area. Every morning we would have chocolate croissants, coffee, her homemade yogurt, and fruit. She was also very accommodating to our dietary requests.
She is an extremely warm and engaging personality and we immediately felt at home with her. We stayed for two weeks and were glad we did as our language skills improved and she was so enjoyable to be around.
This experience prepared us for the rest of our month long vacation in France. We couldn’t have made a better choice.
