This very complete experience offers you a glimpse of the old city and its gastronomy, at the same time as an encounter at the heart of French life.

To start, Emmanuelle will invite you to go for a coffee in a typical bistro to get to know each other.
Then you will head to the historic and living center of the city (Quartier Notre Dame) which has kept its lively soul of yesteryear.

Emmanuelle will then guide you through ancient streets, monuments and passages, explaining the history of the place.

Along the way, you will pass remarkable shops and tour a beautiful market. There you will discover colorful and interesting stalls, where you can stop to taste local specialties.

All of this will have whetted your appetite and it will be time to think about lunch. You will then go to Emmanuelle's who will open the doors of her house to you to prepare the meal together. This will be an hands on moment and you will be invited to get your hands dirty with the dough to make a quiche and a dessert with simple ingredients and the advice of your host.

You will then sit at the table to share a typical "French" lunch in a friendly atmosphere.

Meet your host, Emmanuelle

Host on Airbnb since 2015
  • Identity verified
I come from a family of "gourmands", and already as a child, I took great pleasure in helping my grandmother in her kitchen.

Later, I discovered a passion for travel, history and the discovery of other cultures.

After learning French pastry in Paris, I realized that I liked meeting new people, interacting with them and passing on my passions to them.

It was then that I began to welcome foreign guests, in Paris first, to cook with them and give them an overview of Parisian life, then in San Francisco where I gave French pastry lessons for a few years.

Today back in Versailles, in the city of my family, I propose to welcome you and give you an overview of the city and of "French culture" seen "from the inside".
