About Me

My name is Rémy I’m on Couchsurfing since 2012
🕰️
It’s been a loooong time now!

I’m an ambassador since a few years, I know the couchsurfing world pretty well and I never had issues while I was hosting people!

Don't hesitate to ask questions about the couchsurfing ambassador program: What's an ambassador? https://bit.ly/2Oyd0Mv

🛋️ Couchsurfing is not a dating app! ⚠️ I'm not a nudist, I'm never gonna ask you to sleep in my bed, and I'm very reliable, if I'm saying: yes I can host you, it's a yes :) 🫶

Here you have some important informations:

Important: I’m not living in Toulouse anymore I’m in Paris 🗼now!
I’m living near the metro station Ménilmontant! It’s inside Paris not in the suburbs (line 2)!

I’m the owner of my flat and I designed everything there!
My flat is a real French flat from 1880. 🏚️
Original floor, original fireplaces, original wood door. It’s a very typical flat of the XIX century French bourgeoisie. You’ll have a super French experience there.

I’m not accepting guest for one night anymore.
Too much organization with the sheets/keys for just 1 night.
I’m always doing a tour of the city with my guests if I can. 🏙️
You will have your own keys! 🔑
I’m always inviting guests to eat with me and my friends or to go out! I’m treating them like my friends!
I’m working during the week time from 8AM to 6PM from Monday to Friday. But there’s always a solution fo the keys🔑 (if you have references it's called keybox ;))

Please don’t use couchsurfing as a free hotel, if you’re not mentioning ‘Paris’ in you’re request it will be a ‘no’ : for example:

"I found cheep tickets on my way to Amsterdam, so I need to stay one night at yours."

I don’t want any gift or something specific, but I really think that the minimum for a guest would be to leave a reference!

I'm French, and I'm passionated by languages and history, I'm always happy to speak about cultural differences.

I used to be a freelance Art Director (graphic designer) …

… but now after selling a family company in the bed industry located in Toulouse (south of France) I’m still working for the bed industry. I’m the marketing director of a big company of 180 people!

In my life I did a lot of different stuffs.

I studied in various Parisian art schools, I worked during more than 2 years as an Art Director in an agency named Milky before creating a little studio with a friend named Mascotte+ : http://mascotteplus.fr -- a Parisian graphic Design Studio
I also founded that: Dreamy beds : http://dreamy.cc -- an online bedding company
-
I was the designer of SPARTED : http://sparted.com -- Mobile apps
of Casimex and of their different brands : http://casimex.fr -- Food and more
of Oh Yes Drinks! http://ohyesunlimited.com -- Drinks.

I'm an hard worker, but be sure than I will have time for you and to show you the city of Toulouse!
I love to travel or to discover the world alone when I can!
I use to come back to the place of my former guests! So if there’s a connection maybe I’ll ask you to host me! Who knows ;)

-
At some point I also worked in Barcelona I speak Spanish, Catalan, French and English and am ready to show you the city!
Don't hesitate to contact me or to ask me questions!
