Raymonde – Michele review
Stayed August 2019
It has been several days since we said good-bye, and the memory of our 10 days together is still so fresh in my mind. I truly feel like I experienced the region and culture in a way that I never could have on my own. It was so special to be there during the August 1st fête, to learn about the country’s history, and celebrate with you. Having meals and spending time with your family and friends took the immersion experience to a level I wasn’t expecting but very much appreciated.
Thank you for making me feel at home in your lovely home, and for providing such healthy and delicious meals. J’ai bien mangé ! As your student, I was impressed by how easily you picked up on topics that I needed to work on. You explained complicated concepts very well, and provided me with additional resources that I plan to use at home with my studies. You also gave me confidence to join a French speaking meetup group as soon as I get home.
The excursions you took me on were unforgettable. The tinkling of cowbells in the mountains as we hiked and enjoyed fondue at the top was magical. Wine tasting on the mountainside with beautiful food and a perfect view of Lac Léman was a dream. Experiencing the market in Divonne and swimming in the lake was so lovely. You also offered so much good advice for adventures to take on my own time.
You are elegant, charming, and funny – a pleasure to be around! Thank you for all your hospitality, generosity, knowledge, and inspiration. I hope I can come back again, next time in the winter to do some snowshoeing!
