La Merveille

Planning for a great adventure in 2021? Well this is Normandy France - a beautiful landscape and coastline with some amazing historical features! You will be made to feel at home with food and accommodation provided free. If you enjoy working in customer service and enjoy the 'ambiance' of abed and breakfast/guest house you will have a great time here. This is a region where you can relax and sample the delightful countryside . The work at the Guest House can be demanding but it can also be enjoyable and will certainly be appreciated by our visitors! Normally we receive guests from all over the world so there is a real 'international' feel and there should be plenty of opportunities for language practice. We are a short distance from the Mont St Michel, the second most visited tourist site in France! You can also enjoy trips to Saint Malo and the D-Day Landing Beaches. We visit the local markets, eating places and museums. The Christian Dior exhibition and house is worth a visit and how about a picnic in the peaceful Abbey grounds at Lucerne d'Outremer? Lower Normandy is horse country and a day at the races can almost be guaranteed. In short there is something for everyone.

We welcome you as a friend and invite you to become one of the La Merveille family or team. We do not 'hide' you from our paying guests so we expect you always to behave in a friendly but professional manner. The business has been growing fast largely because we make it a great place for people to stay. Check our customer comments on! My niece Samantha looks after the rooms and is great with the guests - she speaks fluent french. We work, relax and eat together whenever possible. This is not a placement for volunteers seeking parties, bars and city life! We dont have the time!! Most of the time you will have your own room. If you are here when we have large groups you will need to couch surf in our helper's lounge for maybe two or three nights.

Good experience at La Merveille, really nice place to relax and enjoy nature. There are many tasks to do so you can learn and develop many skills. There are many places to visit such as Mont Saint Michel, Dinan, Granville, etc. During this time I met people from other countries, really nice volunteers from Slovenia, USA and France. I had a really good time. Thanks Roger, Boyana, Gina and Heloise for making me feel at home :)

I spend a lovely time in La Merveille, a quiet B&F in the beautiful Normandie. Roger was a really nice host, always happy to talk about anything. He worries that you have a good time and takes you to discover a lot of places. If you're looking for a peaceful place to rest and enjoy while you work, this is for you!

Good experience in the countryside. Calm and nice place. A lot of nature and animals. Opportunity to know more about all the functioning of a b & b and kitchen.

I had such a wonderful time at La Merveille, and it was such an enriching experience for so many different reasons. I truly feel I was able to make a difference, something which wouldn't have been possible without Roger's constant desire for everything to be as wonderful as possible. Roger is a great host, he makes you feel at home! We were able to communicate and work together, up to the point that I can now call him my friend. La Merveille is the perfect place to 1) speak French, 2) make friends, 3) meet people from different parts of the world and 4) have a really fun time!
