Nice experience. The family is very friendly.
Since the first moment they were excellent hosts. If you want to eat the best food in France, Raphael take care of that.Their son Savinia is very friendly also.
"sarlat-la-caneda" in my opinion is a beautiful and wonderful village with much history.

it's an experience that i recommend.




They’re very nice people and the work is fare. Berenice is very kínd and on weekends they will take you out to little villages around. It was a nice staying!




I spent great time, Raphael and Berenice are excelents hosts with a special touch to make you feel really at home. Food is delicious, town is amazing, house is very comfortable in which you can relax after hard work, on weekends you have the opportunity to visit others towns around. So I recommend it to all worldpackers who work very hard.




I had a great time with the Auteurs family, they were very welcoming and there was always laughs and good times to be had. The work was fair and rewarding, and a great way to spend time in the south of France! Would recommend alot :)




The experience was good. The house is confortable, they make you feel at home. You will have three meals everyday, they make sure that you eat and don't have to spend money with food, which is great, they even let you choose what you want, and they go buy it (of course you have to be reasonable). The work is hard, its construction, so you will have to be able to adapt and do diferent things. The hours are fair, exactly what advertised. In the weekend there is no work, and you're free to do whatever you want. The wifi at the house is great. In general was a very good experience.
