From the first day Marie and Neil made me feel at home, I told them I liked the music, so they surprised me with a nice dinner with Colombian music. I recommend this experience because you feel part of the family, the location and the house are very nice, the atmosphere is very quiet and the chores take some time but are simple. Marie and Neil are very attentive people, they cared about me and asked me if I needed anything, I will remember this experience with great happiness. Thank you for everything and a very special greeting to HēiHēi.

Marie and her family were very welcoming, and made me feel at home in the small village of Seigy. The surrounding area is beautiful, and the nearby zoo (5km by bike) was both magnificent and massive. The private room had a gorgeous view of the woods, though did not have a bathroom, so showers had to be midday in a guest bathroom before cleaning it. I was on my own for breakfast and lunch most days, but supper (usually boiled chicken & veg) was served each night with the family. Staying in August meant the rooms were changing daily, and the work was a bit demanding. Overall, I enjoyed my stay.

Thank you Marie and Nils for having me to stay. Normally, they only need two volunteers each year during April and summer. The work is easy, you need to help to serve the breakfast in the morning and clean the room. After finishing the job, you can have your own time during the whole day. They also provide a bike for you to explore the city, and it is really a good place for people who wants to escape the busy world. Overall everything is nice and flexible, really recommended!

The owners are smart people and very very kind. They were very respectful throughout my entire stay. You'll see a lot of nature and have the chance to visit certain places. You will definitely be taken care of 😊. I recommend this experience to anyone!

Mejore bastante mi ingles en esta experiencia las tareas son sencillas aunque si toman tiempo, la localización del sitio es buena pude ocupar una bicicleta gratis para transportarme al pequeño pueblo cercano a unos 15 minutos pedaleando. Los anfitriones te ayudan con la bicicleta direcciones e indicaciones de lo que desees visitar el ambiente es boscoso y muy bello cerca la ciudad de Tours y diferentes castillos a visitar. Para hablar francés recomiendo más tratar con habitantes locales las personas en su mayoría son muy abiertas y amables.
