Le Chai de Marguerite

Its a great place to get a sense of rural France. Its very quiet here ! There is a tiny local bar. There are things to do in the villages in the evenings in the summer so volunteers would definitely benefit from having their own transport.

I run this project on my own so there are no other staff. Friends and family sometimes come to help out. I prepare meals and eat together with volunteers and really enjoy the cultural exchange aspect of hosting. I am currently looking for people - ideally 2 - to give me a hand for the next couple of weeks (till 24 June). I have been away recently and response rates have dropped ! If you are interested, please reach out and I will be in touch very shortly.

I had a wonderful stay at Le Chai de Marguerite. Rebecca is a fantastic hostess! I really enjoyed getting to know her and working in the beautiful garden. The tasks were achievable and I learnt a lot about the local plants and insects. We also went on some trips in the local area to see castles and markets. It was great fun!

Me and my friend had a great time at le chai de marguerite! The house and garden were very beautiful as were the surroundings. We worked in the garden which was very fun because of the nature and the good weather. On our days off Rebecca drove around for us and she always made sure we were eating well by cooking delicious meals. I would recommend everyone to work here as we felt very welcome and the work was fun and satisfying. Thank you Rebecca!

This was an incredible trip. Rebecca is extremely kind, knowledgeable, and generous and it was a pleasure to get to know her and work on this project. The tasks asked of us were very reasonable and clear, and it was fun to see the improvement we made in the garden. The times we agreed upon were honoured, and Rebecca was was very flexible with us. The accommodations were very beautiful, as well as the entire house, and we got to learn a lot about local and French culture. I would recommend this to anyone looking to explore rural areas, take things calm, and get their hands a little dirty.

I had an incredible experience at Le Chai de Marguerite. I worked alongside another woman my age helping the garden of the bed and breakfast. Our tasks varied from day to day but Rebecca was always very clear about what she wanted us to accomplish. We spent our mornings and then had the rest of the day to ourselves. We ate our meals together, and when there was time we took day trips to neighboring villages. Rebecca was a wonderful host and I really enjoyed the time I spent working with her and in this area of France.
