The Experience

Our hotel has a homely atmosphere with 4 rooms and we have a restaurant with local specialties, bar, garden and terrace. This is outdoor-country with lots of walking and cycling trails, fishing, parapenting, etc. etc. In the winter there is a large ski area at 15 minutes drive (Superbesse). We look for enthousiastic people that really enjoy being a part of our business and our little family!

Learning & Fun

Uruguay

Being two weeks with them has been an incredible experience!
The job it's easy and it's fast to learn. You have your own room which is comfortable and everything you need.
Caroline and Eric are super nice people! They worry about you feeling fine, recommend places and take you somewhere if they have time. They also took me on a tour with them. The place is quiet, surrounded by nature, really beatiful!
There are Karel and Truus, two amazing dogs that always make you company on the walks and don't let you get lost :)
I'm really grateful to have met them , thanks for everithing!

Saint-Donat was my first experience with worldpackers and I couldn't have asked for more. The job was really easy and the rooms for us were very comfortable. On the free days they offer to take you to different places and walks, which is really nice of them. You do have to love nature because is a really small town.
Eric and Caroline I can't explain how grateful I am for everything you did for me, I'm missing you and the dogs (Karel and Truus) already, as well as the wine, food and laughs at dinner.
I'll be back to visit you with no doubt (also because I forgot to steal Karel) haha, thanks!!

It was an nice experience in Saint Donat, a lot of learnings, beautiful landscapes, amazing food on the nights and looking how to improve yourself.
Eric and Caroline, nice couple to speak and have a good time in the hotel, just you have to know that if you’re planning to travel around, it’s really very far away of the city. Could be nice to have a fix schedule for the Volunteers.
Enjoy

Caroline and Eric are fantastics hosts!Iwill without a hesitation go back and work with them! To anyone who enjoy being outside and in the campaign by is free time there are many hikes you can do and in bonus you have the company of two lovely dogs! It is true that having a car could be usefull, but we didn't had one and we didn't miss it. It would actually have been easier for Eric and Caroline, but they didn't bother to bring us in hikes near by and at the ski station. We really enjoy ourselves in St-Donat. You will be in good companie and having delicious food(I'm missing it!).

It was great fun (and very useful) having Chloé and Lydia help us out in the winter season. They were very independent in their work and hardly ever needed to be told what had to be done. We could also rely that the tasks were done well so we did not have to double check everything everyday. Which is very important when you are working in high season!
We also enjoyed the evening meals together. they were good company and an interesting conversation.
Chloë and Lydia were not shy of physical work. Stacking wood etc. If there were no specific tasks to be done they would often look for more general things to do (folding napkins etc.).
We definitely recommend Chloë and Lydia to any hosts looking for a very active, unobtrusive yet good company help!

Thanks a lot, girls. We hope you enjoyed Prague will make the right choice on what to do after! :-)

BTW, when Chloë writes "they didn't bother to bring us to hikes", what she means is "they didn't mind to bring us to hikes"! It's a language thingy... :-)

It's really amazing place in a peaceful and quiet area. Eric and Caroline are very great persons. It was my first time on Worldpackers, and I got plenty of good emotions and also improved a bit my italian (there were also 2 italian girls voluntering) and kitchen skills))
There are many beautiful paths (to waterfall etc) and you can aways go there with the dogs, but it's better to have some shoes for hiking.
Also in this village are the church (mostly closed) and the shop (open until 12:30 p.m.). and nothing else and it is just perfect to get away from big cities' noise)
