Ha sido mi primer experiencia de worldpackers, y se encargaron de hacerla lo más agradable posible. Lilou y Jeff son una pareja muy agradable, respetuosa e interesante, que también da toda la confianza durante tu estancia. Ofrecen un lugar muy acogedor que te hará sentir tranquilo y seguro; las tareas son sencillas, principalmente domésticas. Compartimos más tiempo con Lilou, quién es especialmente divertida y alegre, ten por seguro que vale la pena toda charla con ella; fue muy amable de su parte invitarnos a pasar tiempo con sus amigos, y en todo lugar nos sentimos muy bien recibidos.

My experience “chez lilou” couldn’t have been better. The city, Joucques, is like a small village, surrounded by nature. The tasks I had to do were simple. Lilou and her husband, who was traveling at the time I got there, are really nice and friendly. Lilou’s friends were the best, we had the best “frenzilian” dinner, with lots of good wines and laughters. There’s also this lovely furry cat, that always wants to go hunting insects in the garden. I wish I can come back anytime in the summertime, though, because winter around there can be really though. Thank you very much Lilou and Jeff!
