This is the best place to be. I would definetely recommend it to every other traveller, who wants to explore an alternative lifestyle. The people there are like family and the atmosphere is great aswell. I stayed there even longer than expected, because it was so much fun.

My experience at Catfarm was a very interesting one. I learned a lot of things and some new skills. I would totally recommend this amazing place for everyone who wants to learn and experience community living.

Being my first worldpackers experience, the Catfarm was way more than I expected. I made friends for life, put my skills to practice, learnt new skills and overall lived amazing experiences that I’ll never forget. I’m and will always be a cat. I’ll for sure come back and I couldn’t recommend the Catfarm more. It is truly an experience to be lived.

This time was just awesome! I would definetly recommend it to anybody who wants to live an alternative lifestyle, learn unexpected stuff and meet great people :D I hope this place goes on as it is, so that The Catfarm reaches self sufficiency without losing its relaxed and confy vibe!

My experience at Catfarm was incredible! There were 11 volunteers at the beginning and I made lots of friends. I learned a little about gardening and vegetarian cooking, which for me was the best part, since before arriving at Catfarm I did not eat vegetables and I came back from this experience eating absolutely everything, which will help me in a healthy diet from now on . The atmosphere is really magical, you wake up in the morning with lovely scenery to the French vineyards and sleep with the super starry sky. The notion of community is very cool and the working hours are very flexible.
