I had an amazing time with Sam, James & Noodles! They're such great people, king and funny. Their house is beautiful and very comfortable. And the food they provide is just delicious. I felt home away from home! 💙

Honestly I'm very grateful for this experience. I learned about nature, cooking, politics, personal leadership and more. All the family is welcoming, warm and have great sense of humor. Feel free to propose things to do or ask to help. It's a beautiful region. Everything in my experience was 5 stars. You will learn some tricks about high quality food and service. Very recommended for those who are willing to give honest work on exchange of a great experience.

This was a truly excellent experience. Sam and James are super hosts, they are friendly and very helpful towards tasks, and the experience overall. The whole residence, including the volunteer accommodation, is a really high standard. With regards to the tasks, they are very good. There is a good variety in the tasks, in the accommodation, kitchen / dining, and the garden. Another highlight, amongst many, is the opportunity to meet visitors. All of the visitors during our time there, were Ali friendly and sociable. Overall, this was an excellent experience which we would definitely recommend.

We had an amazing time. Sam and James were so welcoming and made us feel at ease as soon as we arrived We met some lovely people while on this experience and would love to go back. Sam was very knowledgeable in the kitchen and the food was amazing. James was brilliant at the guest house side and very good with the guests. I would recommend this experience if you want to have fun and be part of a very happy community

My experience with Sam and James was beyond anything I could have expected. Under their guidance, my time at their BnB was simply amazing! I learned so much about the BnB operation, the way of life in France, gourmet food preparation and service, and this lovely, welcoming family. From the beginning, I felt they recognized my potential (more than I did), and helped develop my confidence and comfort in my role. They went above and beyond, including me on various community experiences. I cannot recommend this placement enough!
