The Experience

Looking towards autumn, we'd love to welcome a couple of Worldpackers (or a Worldpacking couple!) to help us with some work on our land and house for two weeks. We enjoy the Worldpacking experience and our reviews say that we're good and sharing hosts. We give some clear structure and guidance to our volunteers because its good to know what is expected - but we also like conversation and to learn from others. Come and join us!

Working with Jo, Steve, their pets Blaze, Charles, Monty, and my best friend, Geraldine, is one of the best memories I will have in my life.
I learned a lot about farm work and beyond practical knowledge, I learned to value it.
Jo and Steve are two beings full of love, respect, joy and generosity. They also taught us a lot about English culture, they open the doors of their home and their hearts to you. I am immensely grateful that our paths have crossed

Jo & Steve are amazing people. They're very respectful and mindful of the work that has to be done and all of your needs to make your stay a very pleasant one. They took us to see different places in the area and we had a great time meeting some of their friends as well. Their food and company is wonderful.

Regarding the work we did, it was according to what we have agreed to. We helped them with the plants, the compost, some cleaning, etc.

The place is remote but they're always open to discuss when you need to get a ride to the train station or to buy anything you might need.
Thanks again

There aren't enough words to describe such a beautiful experience at Le Moulin! I highly recommend being part of this beautiful home!
Jo and Steve, their pets, the incredible landscapes, the food and even the smallest corner of Le Moulin were amazing!
It was fulfilling and a total pleasure to be able to spend time with them, hear their stories and develop new skills in gardening and composting!
Jo and Steve are a fantastic couple who will make you feel at home!
Thank you for great 2 weeks :)

We enjoyed spending time with you Valeria and you'll be pleased to know that we even managed to have some of the wisteria flowering after all our efforts to protect it.
We appreciated all your hard work and efforts with us and we know that future hosts will be happy to have you volunteer with them!
Take care and stay safe.
