The Experience

Need help for home chores (ironing sheets and clothes, cleaning sanitary, preparation of beds, maintenance of the swimming pool and the spa, etc) and gardening. 5 hours of daily help on average is the maximum, dividing this with "full" days and others of rest since arrivals are generally on Fridays or Saturdays and departures on Sundays.

One of the best experience that you can have. Thierry was very supportive and caring, he shows you around and tells you places to visit or how to get there. The task where normal tasks as are describe in the announce. As a recommendation try to have some level of French so you can have a better communication with the family and you can inmers even more in their culture I would definitely return if I have the chance with a better French Thanks a lot Thierry and Jules and the whole family!

I really enjoyed my time in Labaroche, Thierry and his whole family were super friendly and welcoming! Tasks were easy to complete, accommodations were above my expectations and meals were always delicious. I visited lovely towns and got to practice my French a lot, so in conclusion it was a great experience!
