Working on the home was a lovely experience. It's very quiet and in a small town with nothing in it. So long as you're ready to spend lots of time alone with your thoughts then you'll enjoy yourself. The living situation is also well done. All the volunteers live together in a house with everyone helping out with cooking and cleaning. You'll have lots of time to get to know each other and become friends. Debbie and Daniel were both considerate hosts who provided all that we needed. They are friendly and made an effort to ensure we were adapting well

I had a truly wonderful time and I'm really glad that this was my first experience:)Debbie and Daniel are very welcoming and kind people, so caring and always make sure you have everything you need. The place is so beautiful and calm, right for people who love rural places and nature. the home is impressive and the cats are so cute! Debbie also took us to many other places. Therefore I had the opportunity to watch three big fireworks. I'm very happy and thankful for this! Debbie is such an inspiring person. The work in the home was well organized. Thank you for everything, already miss it!

I had the most incredible experience at this the home! The warmth and hospitality from Debbie and Daniel were beyond compare. The way they've organized the place is truly impressive – I never felt lacking anything. They exceeded our expectations in every way, and I'm so grateful for the opportunity to learn so much here. This visit will always hold a special place in my heart, and every moment was an absolute pleasure. Many thanks to you -Martin!

Love you Marty! Miss you both so much xx



From the very beginning my boyfriend and I we felt very welcomed! The place is very cozy and sweet. Our tasks were very clear about the home the house rules. Everything has labels and you can really know what you can use and what not. We really felt Debbie as our friend! She took us to many different locations around Normandy for festivals, fireworks, concerts and we really had the chance to enjoy volunteering while having fun. We usually have a list with all the things that we need to do around the home, feeding chickens and cats. We also learn a lot about the home kitchen and recipes!
