Notre fils Yohan a passé 15 jours chez Mélissa et Colin cet été. Il a été très bien accueilli par toute la famille et s’est senti en confiance dès les premiers jours. Il était avec un ado espagnol et une ado italienne. Mélissa nous a rassuré en nous envoyant des photos et messages ce qui nous permis de suivre le séjour de Yohan. Elle est très disponible et bienveillante. Yohan a bien progressé en anglais et ne s’est jamais ennuyé. Il a tissé des liens avec la famille surtout avec Mélissa avec laquelle une belle complicité s’était installé. Il garde un très très bon souvenir de son séjour et le départ a été un peu dur ! Il souhaite y revenir !! Je recommande vivement !! Merci beaucoup Mélissa et Colin pour votre gentillesse !

Elsa , notre fille âgée de 14 ans a passé quinze jours chez Mélissa et Colin. Elsa a été très bien accueillie par toute la famille. C 'était la première fois qu'Elsa partait seule à l'étranger et nous avons énormément apprécié la qualité du séjour. Elsa s'est sentie comme chez elle, avec une grande attention portée à son égard . Ce fût un voyage inoubliable pour elle et pour nous aussi , qui avions l'assurance de la savoir très bien là bas. Les photos envoyées par Mélissa nous ont permis de suivre l'évolution de son séjour et de vivre au rythme des ses découvertes. Elle a bien progressé en anglais . et rêve de repartir chez Mélissa et Colin . Bravo et merci pour cette implication dans l'accueil . Nous recommandons vivement .

Paul-Philippe notre fils de 15 ans vient de passer 10 jours (Noël inclus) Chez Melissa et Colin. Ce sont des gens formidables. Paul-Philippe a beaucoup aimer être avec eux. Très bien reçu, tout était parfait dès le premier jour. Colin et Melissa et leurs trois enfants forment une famille rassurante et aimante. Notre fils voyage à l'étranger depuis l'âge de 8 ans. Chez Melissa, Colin et leurs enfants, il s'est senti comme dans sa famille. Ils ont su donner de leur temps avec beaucoup de plaisir et d'attention à notre fils. entre autre, par exemple, en participant à la préparation du repas de Noël......une vraie vie de famille comme on aime.... Cette très bonne intégration a beaucoup aidé Paul-Philippe à améliorer ses compétences en anglais. Melissa et Colin sont si charmants et attentionnés qu'ils corrigeaient ses phrases pour le rendre meilleur. Nous les recommandons fortement

My daughter, 14 years old, spent 2 weeks in October 2021 at Melissa's. It was her first stay abroad and she enjoyed so much her stay and trip. Melissa and her family are so nice, patient, and welcoming. My daughter enjoyed every moment with Melissa, Colin and their 3 children, and a spanish girl who stayed there for a couple of months. They had activities every day and children are really nice. As a Mom, I felt so confident to let my daughter stay with Melissa and her family - we catched up by video before arrival of my daughter, and Melissa often sent me pictures and news during my daughter's stay. I understand also that house and landscapes around are really nice. It was a great stay for my daughter and she couldn't have better family experience as the one with Melissa. Thank you so much Melissa!

I stayed at Melissa's for two weeks in July 2018. During my stay, I was most of the time the only student there (during my first two days, there was a Spanish girl with me). I had a really great time at Melissa's, we did many activities like going to the beach, or visiting a castle which was nearby, or walking in the forest or going to the cinema, or just going out all together in the evening. We can imagine that with three young children in the house the holidays won't be so charming but the children were really nice to me and it was kind of fun to look after them and play with them. It didn't stop me from enjoying my stay. What I liked most during my trip were the landscapes with many hills and it's beauty I'm not used to as I live near Paris.
