La Vanière is an amazing home, Michele and her life-partners Lucy, Lily, Zoey & Pearl make the experience lovely. Her house is an 18th century place which in the renovating proces gets more faboulous, and I enjoyed that so much!
The place is located in the midle of the Haut-Languedoc natural park and there's a lot of places to visit near such as villages, forest, mountains or lakes. Also it has a good bus connection from Montpellier.
A total experience that I would recomend to every worldpackers traveller 😊

buenas la experiencia no fue del todo negativa!!.. si falta compromiso con el voluntario y cumplir con lo que sé le ofrese, tener en cuenta que muchos de los voluntarios no somos del país por lo que la dirección darla por municipios es asta complicado para los mismos habitantes ..... gracias!!!
