We have been hosts with other sites for over 10 years and our happy to say we have great reviews. We have a wide range of things for you to do and see with lots of interesting projects. From restoring a 400 year old house. Building a gypsy caravan from recycled materials. To large scale gardening. We also have lots of local history and wonderful country side around us.
We are an English family living in France Karen and John with our 21yr old sons. We moved here 16 years ago and are rebuilding a 400 year old house and farm. Helpers stay in on of our cottages which is totally self contained. This allows for any covid restrictions. We hope helper will get involved with the family and get involved in what we are doing and the on going project
Could not wait for a more enriching experience! I was there for 3 weeks. My routine was always waking up, eating breakfast, doing the tasks of the day (I used to feed the animals, organize some things, mow the lawn and even helped in the concreting of floors). These are jobs that require good fitness, so be aware! After lunch, I would stroll around the beautiful area or read a book. It is really a place to disconnect and rest. I haven't felt that peace in a long time. I highly recommend it, and I will always remember very fondly of everyone I met. Also, the food is excellent!

It´s a beautiful small farm in the French campagne where you can enjoy a perfect weather and have a lot of fun in a delightful landscape. About the couple: John is a kind and gentle man who will teach you a lot of things about everything. He is really wit. Karen is a wonderful woman who can make you feel part of the family in a second. She will understand you, help you with all your doubts, problems and she´lll watch over you for everything. The food is amazing. They have animals there, so you have a nice job to care of them, its great. I strongly recommend Le Chataigner for any Worldpacker.
