The Experience

We have a small permaculture farm of 10 ha in central-southern France, which is a work-in-progress, as are the farm buildings. We are looking for a few extra pairs of hands to help with the renovation work, farm work and helping around the house. Join us! We are located about 20 minutes from Tulle, the nearest town, in the middle of Correze, known as the "Green Country".

My experience in here was amazing. I learned about many ways to care for the planet which I find extremely important to mention. The tasks are super easy to do and bearable. Sometimes out in the field and sometimes in taking care of Evi or cleaning up. I'm very grateful to Fran and Craig, they know how to make you feel at home. Fran, here’s another person who will miss your daily meal! Thank you very much.
My most precious greetings to Lolo, Al and the girls :)

This was my first experience with worldpackers and I have to say that I didn't expect it to be so good. Fran and Craig were such amazing hosts and their children are so lovely. Also I had to do a lot of different tasks, so it never got boring. During my time I learned a lot about sustainability as well, that was really nice. The environment is stunning and it's great for people who love to spend a lot of time in nature. If you want to learn some french you can just go to their very nice neighbor Annie, who loves to share some stories and cake with you. I already miss my time there soo much!

Craig, Fran and Everleigh were just so nice! the tasks were easy and you could learn a lot of things during them, and after that you could enjoy Fran's delicious food (ask her to cook curry with chutney). the toilet might seem scary the first days but you will get used to them easily. Evi is the most adorable girl and she will love you and will want to play with you. you can also visit Annie, the neighbor, and practice your French while drinking tea. i would definetly recommend this experience, but you have to keep in mind that it's a rural area so bring books and stuff specially during winter

I liked my stay! Hosts were caring, with a sense of humor, chill, food was tasty and a bit spicy.

Things to know before you go: phone connection in the area is bad but the wi-fi is very good. Compost toilet is at 2-3 meters height, need to climb ladder. Some works can be dirty - take your worst clothes/shoes. Stone house stays cold in summer, take smth warm also. Not suitable if you have spiders or snakes phobias. Volunteers are provided with lunch Monday to Friday, the rest you cook yourself. If you are not very fit as me, work sometimes can be physically hard but doable.

I recommend 😊

I have had a great time at Fran and Craig’s place, it was really a nice volunteering experience and we learn a lot about find ways to impact less the planet, as about construction and renovation. They are a very kind family eager to help you and guide you through the tasks, and the best part is Fran’s cooking skills, is amazing! I hope I can come back soon!
