The Experience

You'll be helping us in our gardens, potager, and orchard doing work that we're finding difficult to get done due to time restrictions. Sometimes the work will be very physical, other times repetitive, but always important to us. Ours is a relaxed household where, apart from your helping hours, you won't be expected to do anything more unless you want to. We're a non-smoking household - that includes the grounds too.

100 % recommend this experience ! Jo & Steve are such kind, caring and fun people, I couldn't thank them enough :) The house is absolutely stunning and the work quite fun. I did a lot of gardening in the mornings (with afternoons off), some days were harder than others in terms of physical work but I would definitely do it again! Thank you once again !

I had a fantastic few weeks at Jo and Steve's house. They will be watching you feel comfortable. You will eat delicious food and the place is big and comfortable surrounded by the typical countryside landscape, really beautiful. ideal if you want to be away from noise. I am grateful to have met them!

Hello Lluvia and Diego, I didn't realise until now that I hadn't written a 'public reply'! Thanks for your lovely comments. We loved having you to stay and often wonder where you are now and how you are doing. Thanks for all your hard work and help at the Moulin and for showing us your music, dance and culture x

Jo y Steve fueron son muy buenas personas, aprendimos varias cosas de jardinería y comimos delicioso. Recomiendo si quieres estar un rato tranquilo alejado del bullicio de las grandes ciudades.
