Unfortunately for family reasons I had to leave volunteering earlier, but the time I was there was incredible. Debbie and Daniel make you feel like family from the first day you arrive. The tasks are amazing and teach you to be more sustainable every day. I definitely miss volunteering.

It was a beautiful experience to stay with Debbie and Daniel, they are super nice people. They taught us different ways to cook delicious food. I hope we'll be back someday.

When D+D met me at the bus stop I immediately felt so welcomed and so comfortable with them, and that feeling only got better every day I was at La Maison. D+D are two of the funniest and most amazing people I have ever met, and manage to be incredibly grounded and hospitable people in any circumstance. They often go out of their way to make sure you are completely comfortable and provided for, with private rooms, enjoyable work hours, weekly treats, and amazing day trips with wonderful company. Work always manages to be fun, and in the most beautiful place ever. I can't wait to come back!
