Would this be a good area to stay in Paris?

Jump to last reply

I have an offer for a home exchange in August with a family in Paris. They live in VILLENEUVE LE ROI.
They write: "We live in a house in a small town near Paris. The RER C station is 5 minutes on foot to get to Paris in 20 minutes".
All I can make out from the internet, is that this area is definitely not part of the touristy spots (which is fine with me), and it is near to Orly Airport (should this be a problem?). To me it seems more like a suburb than a small town? I have never been to Paris, and have no idea how the city 'works'.
In principle I would love to spend a month in "a small town near Paris"!!
Is this a safe area? Would you like to stay there for a month? Please help!
