It´s a beautiful small farm in the French campagne where you can enjoy a perfect weather and have a lot of fun in a delightful landscape. About the couple: John is a kind and gentle man who will teach you a lot of things about everything. He is really wit. Karen is a wonderful woman who can make you feel part of the family in a second. She will understand you, help you with all your doubts, problems and she´lll watch over you for everything. The food is amazing. They have animals there, so you have a nice job to care of them, its great. I strongly recommend Le Chataigner for any Worldpacker.
We have been hosts with other sites for over 10 years and our happy to say we have great reviews. We have a wide range of things for you to do and see with lots of interesting projects. From restoring a 400 year old house. Building a gypsy caravan from recycled materials to milking our goats, feeding pigs and growing our own food. We also have lots of local history and wonderful country side around us.About the host
