We're a middle aged English speaking couple with great plans for creating a special business here ….but we're still in the early stages and looking for some help. We have a beautiful home in a very peaceful and idyllic setting that we share with our two friendly dogs and two cats. You'll have your own lovely room and a bathroom, use of our living areas, access to an art studio and, if its warm enough, use of our pool. If you are looking for a quiet haven in a beautiful setting the Moulin is for you!
You'll be treated as our guest - in return for some manual work around the garden, orchard and house. We will treat you with trust, respect and humour - and we'll make sure that you get to see the stunning area in which we live whilst you're with us. We see this as an exchange - your labour for our hospitality. We are generous hosts and would be upset if our volunteers felt shortchanged both in the food they eat, their accommodation and the experience. In return we ask that you work hard during your working hours, are enthusiastic, smiling and engage with us. We enjoy having volunteers in our home for several reasons and not only for the work that you do - although that is important too. Having a volunteer is motivating - it makes us tackle some of the tasks that maybe we have been putting off. We get a buzz from seeing the progress on our home and gardens, and from seeing this beautiful place through someone else's eyes. And with our children leading their own lives we miss the connection to current culture and love hearing about it through our volunteers.
100 % recommend this experience ! Jo & Steve are such kind, caring and fun people, I couldn't thank them enough :) The house is absolutely stunning and the work quite fun. I did a lot of gardening in the mornings (with afternoons off), some days were harder than others in terms of physical work but I would definitely do it again! Thank you once again !

I had a fantastic few weeks at Jo and Steve's house. They will be watching you feel comfortable. You will eat delicious food and the place is big and comfortable surrounded by the typical countryside landscape, really beautiful. ideal if you want to be away from noise. I am grateful to have met them!

this is a beautiful place, the tasks are sometimes heavy but you will learn a lot, the room where you are accommodated is very comfortable and Joanna and Steve are very nice, they will always have a nice talk and good food. overall i recommend it.

Hello Lluvia and Diego, I didn't realise until now that I hadn't written a 'public reply'! Thanks for your lovely comments. We loved having you to stay and often wonder where you are now and how you are doing. Thanks for all your hard work and help at the Moulin and for showing us your music, dance and culture x
