Château de Saint-Loup sur Thouet

Il s'agit pour un étudiant d'une opportunité de découvrir un merveilleux Château en France et de pouvoir y vivre pendant une ou deux semaines parfois plus en échange de quelques heures de collaboration principalement au jardin, parfois dans le château car nous sommes une Guest house, parfois sur l'ordinateur pour la communication ( 4 h par jour 5 jours sur 7 ) Si vous aimez la nature, l'architecture, l'histoire, vous serez comblés.

Accueillir est notre métier et nous avons de très bons commentaires en général. Nous aimons partager notre passion pour ce lieu exceptionnel. Nous souhaitons donner la possibilité aux volunteers avec un profil Etudiant la possibilité de découvrir et vivre une expérience unique en échange d'un coup de main au jardin le plus souvent. Chambre individuelle confortable et vie de famille simple.

My experience here was just wonderful. The whole place is stunning and I loved spending my free time walking around the beautiful grounds. The tasks were easy, hours were respected and everything was just as communicated beforehand. Sophie and Charles-Henri were super kind and welcoming, I always felt comfortable and right at home. I truly had a magical time and would definitely recommend :)

My time here was so so amazing, it’s such a beautiful place to stay and exploring the grounds is such a magic experience.
Sophie was very welcoming and makes sure you have everything you need. The working hours were very well respected and the work was always done together so I never felt alone with a task which was really nice. I will really miss visiting the horses and saying hello to the cats, this place is such a breath of fresh air, I loved it!

My experience at Saint-Loup was unforgettable. The property and grounds are stunning and the living accommodations were very comfortable and clean. It's located in an ideal location so you can take trips to Paris and La Rochelle on the weekend! Work was clearly indicated beforehand and we adhered to the same schedule of work from 8AM-Noon everyday. I was so grateful to be able to explore the gardens and all the beautiful rooms in the castle+keep with other volunteers. This is a great opportunity for people who want to live life in the countryside and make a direct impact with marketing!

Hello Arina, Thank you so much for your help.
We hope that this experience was not too laborious, work in the garden is sometimes difficult and life in the Château rather grueling for those who are intrepid enough to try the adventure internally.
But the beauty of the Château de Saint-Loup sur Thouet is worth it, isn't it?
best wishes too Arina

Uma experiência muito diferentel!! Sophie e Charles são muito amáveis e tiveram muita paciência comigo por ainda não conseguir me comunicar bem em inglês, dentre outras coisas como na alimentação e no conforto. O trabalho de jardinagem é sim um pouco puxado, então vá preparado para trabalhar e nada do que se alongar e ter o corpo preparado para esse tipo de experiência. Super recomendo esse voluntariado e agradeço muito por essa experiência de morar num castelo tão antigo, foi incrível!
