It was my first experience as a Wwoofer and I stayed during 7 weeks at Ray and Cécile's place. I was very welcomed by Ray and Cécile, their friends and family which are so nice and kind. They will always be there to help you or teach you new skills. As a curious person it was a great opportunity to share with Ray different tasks, there were always a new job/activity to do and enjoy, and every day was different from the previous one. So I would like to end on these words : Merci beaucoup

Raymond and Cecile were great. I felt very comfortable during the whole month I spent there. Although it's a long trip from Spain, it was an amazing experience and I really recommend it.

It was an incredible experience where I got to try things I have never done such as waterskiing, quadding, driving, etc. I enjoyed every moment at the guest house with Ray and Cecile. They made me feel welcome and filled up my time with exciting activities. I got to interact with locals and listen to their stories. The workload was appropriate. 3 weeks there went so quickly, and I wished I could stay more. Even if it was my first worldpacker experience, it was an amazing time spent with wonderful people.
