Karen is a wonderful person. It was a great experience working with her.



Could not wait for a more enriching experience! I was there for 3 weeks. My routine was always waking up, eating breakfast, doing the tasks of the day (I used to feed the animals, organize some things, mow the lawn and even helped in the concreting of floors). These are jobs that require good fitness, so be aware! After lunch, I would stroll around the beautiful area or read a book. It is really a place to disconnect and rest. I haven't felt that peace in a long time. I highly recommend it, and I will always remember very fondly of everyone I met. Also, the food is excellent!



my experience was incredible with his family, they are so good people, i love them. if you want to have a good time in france you have to go there. i am sure that i come back there!!!!



I like this family very much. They are very nice people, they treat me like family and teach me a lot.



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.
