Hi I am Francien! I love the great city I have called home for the last 38 years and enjoy discovering new places in it every day. I am originally from Indonesia and the travel bug still strong in me as I love exploring new places and cultures. I have been to Indonesia, Germany, Jordan, Turkey, Spain, Italy, India, France, Sri Lanka, Croatia, Bosnia, Montenegro and Portugal all in the last 5 years! And with Homestay I can keep learning of people and places even if it is from the comfort of my living room or kitchen. As they say " kitchen is the heart of a home". I am happy to share my home and have lots of handy tips for you to make the most of your time and budget. I invite you to come and stay with me in my comfortable London Victorian Terraced home that is directly opposite a big park and well connected to all parts of the city. Please feel free to ask me any questions, practical or fun, to get the most out of your visit before and during your stay. "Sir, when a man is tired of London, is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford" -a quote of Dr Samuel Johnson, English writer in 18th century, is still true today.
Our neighbourhood is in the Borough of Lambeth, stretching from the South Bank of the river Thames to the suburbs of Streatham and Norwood. Lambeth is bursting with exciting attractions. Brixton, one of the borough's most multi-cultural areas has a thriving shopping centre and market selling ethnic foods, household goods, jewellery and second-hand goods. Its thriving night-life makes it the heart of London's urban scene, and it also has the best live venue in London, the Brixton Academy. Another part of the borough, Kennington, is famous for the Oval Cricket Ground, where county and test cricket matches are played. Famous local figures include Charlie Chaplin who was born there in 1889. There are 3 underground stations: Brixton, Clapham Common and North Clapham and 3 railway stations: Brixton, Streatham Hill and Hern Hill. The bus stops are 200 meters away from the house and there are 8 busses to the most major stations and places of interest in West End and the City. Sainsbury's supermarket, myriad shop corners, restaurants and cafes are scattered around the vicinity. Brockwell Park is 15 minutes walk away and has beautiful West End, the City, Dockland skyline.
