because it's oozes calm yet is very close to at least two illustrious tourist spots: the chateau de Chantilly and chateau de Compiegne, not to forget Senlis. All within 20km that may be reached by train / bikes / buses on days off. Or else Paris, which is 35 minutes by train from station of Pont Sainte-Maxence, 7km away.
Volunteers have participated in the life of the chateau for the past 25 years and are treated as guests, with access to bicycles, billiards and table tennis
The château is a place that is located in the middle of nowhere,
So if your purpose is to save money, definitely this place helps you a lot since you do not have nearby places to go and spend money as it could happen if you are in a city.
Regarding the hostess, she is a rather kind lady, who gives you the 3 meals of the day, however, patience is not the greatest of her virtues. I do not consider myself the best of the volunteers, but on 3 occasions, she for lack of patience, yelled at me what I felt was a lack of respect, although she realized it and apologized.

Madame Hermine é uma excelente pessoal, uma senhora que já recebe voluntários a 14anos.
O château fica distante de tudo, a cidade chama Sacy le Petit, uma gracinha, porém, não tem nada (farmácia, mercado,padaria)
O trabalho nem sempre é leve. Eu peguei jardinagem, mas fiz de tudo, limpeza interna, limpar quartos, limpar janelas, arar o quintal, fazer cimento, ajudar a carregar peso, lixar e polir o chão, ir de bicicleta nas cidades próximas pra ir comprar leite, legumes , ir ao correio e a padaria.
Meu celular quebrou e a madame me emprestou gentilmente o tablet :)
