Maison de Maitre en Bord de Rivière

Our nature Countryside with its medieval environnement. We live directly at the river. Our peacefull touristical summervillage is ideal for persons who look to relax, to fish, to read, to enjoy a glass of wine or just work on their tan. You can also go horse riding, kayaking or golfing at less than three miles (5km) from the house.

Although we do spend a lot of the meals together we have created you a private "Living Space". It is a comfortable thermical insulated and winterheated large camper space next to our house. This provides you in a double bed, tv _ free internet, and kitchenette with a FILLED UP FRIDGE, shower room - toilet and private terrace on the Riverside. (see joined picture collection of your private living space)

If you are without transport, you have a bike at your disposal as we are having a direct access to the regional green path which leads to the nearest town. We assist you in finding cheap ways of visiting nearby places such as Toulouse & Bordeaux.

In summer months our village weekly has an animated saturday evening marché gourmand with live music. The small town next to us has free concerts on wedsnesday. And during the hot summerdays you can bath and relax at the nautical base of our small village or go for a swim in the pool on the riverside in a nearby village called Sainte Livrade or go by bicycle to the lake with sand beach. All depends on your own initiatives and interests. Do keep in mind you will need to take the bicycle and/or bus or car co-riding platform.

And of course from time to time we do try to drive you to the nearest places too… At five miles (5km) from the house you will find public transport connections to larger cities, bars, restaurants, cinema and all the shops you could possibly need.

To be happy at our place you also need to enjoy spending some time on your own, just reading, meditating, hiking, riding or writing a book... Our place is very peaceful and we are looking forward to meeting responsible people with love for animals and respect for nature. From time to time we also host paying guests who often look for privacy an quietness. So at those periods some parts of the property can not be used by the volunteers. We deeply care about the quality of service we offer to our guests, and we give our maximum to create comfortable conditions for our volunteers, so we don't expect less than your maximum.

Uma boa experiência para quem quer ficar mais próximo da natureza e do interior. Recomendo a experiência e acho que de casal deve ser mais divertido, por ter poucos voluntários ao mesmo tempo. E morar num trailer é super diferente hahaha

This was my first time with Worldpackers and I loved the whole experience! Marika and Stephan are very kind, respectful, welcoming and always willing to help out. The tasks, working hours and living conditions are exactly as listed in the description; the work isn't hard nor complicated. I stayed in a trailer fully equipped, comfy and a little away from the main house (which was great because I had my own space).

Personally, I decided to come here because I wanted to practice my French, have a set schedule and be in touch with nature, and this experience was the perfect match. Merci M & S !

It’s a beautiful place. I loved my stay.
I stayed in a trailer for couple. The trailer is spacious, has equipped kitchen, bathroom with hot water and more things.
Great for those who like privacy.
Marika and Stephan are a kind couple, they are great hosts, they also made me feel comfortable all the time.
We talked a lot at lunch time, we had good laughs too.
I couldn’t forget to talk about Paco, Sandro and Perle who became my pet friends.

Our stay in Colombie was very pleasant, it is located in a small village that has a lot of nature and greenery that allows you to ride a bicycle provided by the volunteers. The tasks are simple, we have shared lunches with the hosts which I find very positive, they have complied with the working hours, rest times, with the possibility of transfer and food. Marika and Stephan have been very good hosts with us, thank you very much :)
