We are hosts in a region close to Paris and we welcome you in the old style in a stately home on the edge of a quiet village. Every day is different, whether outdoors - taking care of a hectare of the park, vegetable garden (old varieties of vegetables) orchard, and going by bicycle to the market in the next city - be it within traditional cuisine, jams, organic life ... You will have plenty of free time to explore the surroundings!Learn more

This is the perfect place to experience living in an amazing and old mansion in a very quite and farming place. You will be able to see beautiful architecture and nature around the mansion. One of my favorite tasks was picking up walnuts in the yard. Its a place to be away from the loud of a city. Hermine is a very nice host that would take care of you having all your meals and help here around the house. But definetly she will be very grateful to have you in her beautiful house.

The château is a place that is located in the middle of nowhere,
So if your purpose is to save money, definitely this place helps you a lot since you do not have nearby places to go and spend money as it could happen if you are in a city.
Regarding the hostess, she is a rather kind lady, who gives you the 3 meals of the day, however, patience is not the greatest of her virtues. I do not consider myself the best of the volunteers, but on 3 occasions, she for lack of patience, yelled at me what I felt was a lack of respect, although she realized it and apologized.

Sacy le petit es un pueblo campestre que permite conectarte con la naturaleza y conocer sobre costumbres y tradiciones.
El castillo tiene muchas actividades tanto al exterior como al interior, que dependen de tu proactividad. Las actividades solicitadas por Hermine son sencillas y rápidas en su mayoría, dandote tiempo libre entre ellas. A las tiendas cercanas debes ir en bici, la comida es completa y deliciosa cada día.
Es posible que debas acordar horarios de actividades, asi que déjalo claro en la lista de tareas y confirma buena comunicación.

Madame Hermine é uma excelente pessoal, uma senhora que já recebe voluntários a 14anos.
O château fica distante de tudo, a cidade chama Sacy le Petit, uma gracinha, porém, não tem nada (farmácia, mercado,padaria)
O trabalho nem sempre é leve. Eu peguei jardinagem, mas fiz de tudo, limpeza interna, limpar quartos, limpar janelas, arar o quintal, fazer cimento, ajudar a carregar peso, lixar e polir o chão, ir de bicicleta nas cidades próximas pra ir comprar leite, legumes , ir ao correio e a padaria.
Meu celular quebrou e a madame me emprestou gentilmente o tablet :)
