Brazil

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.
