The space

We are very happy to welcome you in our home :)

My name is Barbara, and this is my parents' propriety (Odile and Eric). They live there with my three siblings (Brian 19, Kristopher 17, Erika 26), Samuel (Erika's boyfriend). There is also Maria & Mihai (who help keep the house safe and clean), and who are the ones that will be able to help if you need something.

My parents are passionate about art and beauty, and I believe you will feel it during your stay in our house :)

The space we are renting on Airbnb is my private apartment, a 120 square meter Loft, fully equipped, with an independant entrance.

This is where I stay when I visit my family. I've been living in Montreal for the past 10 years now, so I don't spend much time in this Loft. That is why we decided to rent it on Airbnb, instead of keeping it empty.
It is confortable and welcoming, and our propriety is amazing. Lots of art pieces, a swimming pool, an access to the forest with a public lake, and a fire pit.
We wanted to share it with others... So we are very happy to welcome you!



The Loft should have all the things you need for your stay. But if you feel you are missing something, you can ask Maria/Mihai.

Maria/Mihai has been working at our house for the past couple years. They are from Romania, and you'll see that even if they don't speak very well french, they are the most adorable people.
They are the people in charge of cleaning and keeping the house safe and comfortable for everyone. So they are the one to ask for anything during your stay :)

House, Barbara & Barbaras parents, garden and location are all posh. Although hard to find at the beginning house is fabulous with touches of good taste art everywhere. Its near a lake, a forest and a horse ridding facility , yet relatively close to train station and only half hour drive to Eifel Tower. Barbaras parents are living next door and they are very friendly and cosmopolit. If you like treasure hunting you will just need to have a walk in the garden and you will find little pieces of art everywhere. We visited mid Feb - not a chance to use the pool - but its not to big - i think in the summer will work only for little ones. We've been 4 persons but appartament can hold up to 6 that if you dont mind sharing 1 bath. Barbaras brothers and sister are young and party type - so if you are similar age - there you go for sone tips&treats'. No restaurants or supermarket nearby walking but Versailles is 10 min drive and there is all you need. Enjoy, Adrian

This was a real surprise behind a gated entrance and we were wonderfully received & looked after by Alfredo. The loft is an brilliantly designed large space which allowed a family of 5 to sleep and live very comfortably while visiting Versailles. Lots of nice touches from Barbara's mothers Hotel de De Beaute, including shampoo, soap and towels etc. Garden and pool are unique !

Nous devions passer des examens à proximité des Loges en Josas, et nous avons été très bien accueillis : nous avons pu profiter du calme du domaine et de la piscine, très agréable en temps de fortes chaleurs. Le loft est au moins aussi beau que sur les photos et décoré avec beaucoup de goût. Un grand merci à nos hôtes pour les quelques jours que nous avons partagés!

Surtout ne pas y aller avec des enfants pas du tout securise les prestations annoncées sont manquantes piscine 1 seul petite plaque de cuisson sans ustensile même pas une poêle adaptée rien comme vaisselle . Location très décevante rapport qualité prix On se retrouve au dessus d'un espace de travail dont on a absolument pas connaissance donc pas de bruit en journée sous peine que cela nous soit reproché Accueil très approximatif la personne qui loue ce bien est à l'étranger ce qui ne facilite pas les relations . En résumé je deconseillerai cet endroit qui paraît prometteur mais qui n'est autre au final qu'une source de revenus pas du tout me semble t'il dans l'esprit airbnb Grosse déception

Response from Barbara:
Nous avons eu le malheur d'accepter la demande de location d'un novice chez Airbnb (pas de commentaires de locations passées). Et nous en avons payé les conséquences....Patrick et sa famille sont malhonnêtes, et cela a été une location très désagréable. En 3 années sur Airbnb et plus de 60 familles reçues, je n'ai jamais eu une aussi mauvaise expérience. Patrick ne semblait pas avoir pris le temps de lire l'annonce avant de réserver chez nous, et n'a pas cessé pendant le séjour de se plaindre de choses qui étaient pourtant clairement indiqués au sein de l'annonce. D'ailleurs, Patrick a fait une plainte... qui a été refusée par Airbnb car non fondée! Pour les futurs locataires, j'aimerais donner une réponse aux accusations que Patrick émet ici dans son commentaire: 1) TOUT l'équipement de la cuisine est listé au sein notre annonce. Justement afin d'éviter les surprises. Vous pouvez voir cela dans la section "Kitchen" de l'annonce. 2) Il est indiqué dans notre annonce que le logement n'est pas adapté aux enfants. Patrick a décidé de venir avec des enfants quand même, c'est son choix. Mais nous indiquons au sein de l'annonce que ce n'est pas adapté aux enfants et personnes à mobilité réduite. 3) Le rapport Qualité-Prix est excellent. Si ce n'était pas le cas Patrick aurait pu annuler son voyage dans les premier 24h (il y avait de nombreux logements disponibles aux alentours). Le problème c'est que ces logements sont plus chers que le notre, et sont de bien moins bonne qualité (domaine privé + parking inclut etc.). 4) Il est expliqué très clairement au sein de notre annonce que le loft fait parti d'un domaine habité. D'ailleurs, il y a des photos qui le montrent. Encore une fois ici, c'est une question de respect d'autrui et de civilité (ce qu'on attend dans le cadre de airbnb). Leur enfant courrait dans l'appartement de long en large, ce qui était assez insupportable pour les gens en dessous, c'est compréhensible. 5) Il est indiqué au sein même de notre annonce, dans la section "accueil des voyageurs" que nous sommes disponibles en cas de besoin, mais que nous ne sommes pas présent pour l'accueil. Cependant vous pouvez voir dans nos notes des précédents voyageurs que nous avons une note excellente en terme de facilité d'accès et d'arrivée. 6) Nous sommes extêmement sélectifs quand à la location du logement justement car nous n'avons aucun intérêt purement financier à le louer. Mais bel et bien car nous aimons l'expérience Airbnb. Il suffit de voir mon profile ainsi que les dizaines de familles que j'ai reçu pour le remarquer.

Nous avons beaucoup apprécié le week-end passé au loft. Le cadre est magnifique, la piscine très agréable et originale, le loft est très bien équipé et conforme à la description. Alfredo a été très sympathique et discret à la fois, il a réussi à satisfaire toutes nos demandes. Nous avons peu échangé avec la famille, mais c'était à chaque fois très agréable. Nous allons certainement revenir. Merci de cet agréable week-end

We hebben 5 geweldige dagen gehad. Mooi appartement, geweldige tuin, zalig zwembad, schattige huisdieren en een zeer behulpzame gastheer, Alfredo. Geweldig om Versailles te bekijken. Kleinigheidje: er is maar 1 kookplaatje, geen 2 zoals vermeld, dus alleen geschikt voor simpele gerechtjes.

Je m'appelle Barbara, je suis française d'origine et je vis à Montréal depuis 8 ans!
Je suis gérante d'artiste et musicienne. Mes autres passions : l'art contemporain, la cuisine et les voyages :)
Je vis avec mon amoureux Pierre-Alexandre qui est québécois et musicien aussi.

Nous avons plusieurs espaces sur Airbnb :
1) Notre appartement à Montréal (que nous louons au complet quand nous sommes absents)
2) Une chambre privée dans notre appartement à Montréal (quand nous sommes présents mais que nous sommes disponibles à recevoir des locataires)
3) Un Loft à côté de Paris, au sein d'un domaine grand artistique (maison de mes parents) avec piscine.

J'espère que nos espaces de vie vous inspireront autant qu'ils nous inspirent :)
