I stayed with Michele for two weeks and it was a very lovely time! I loved my room and was provided breakfast, lunch, and dinner everyday! It was a great way to connect with nature and everyone I met was very friendly. I felt very safe in the town and neighboring towns. Taking care of things around the B&B was very easy and I enjoyed it a lot! I would recommend staying with Michele to anyone, she did a great job of making me feel welcome and was a wealth of information for me!

My stay at Michele's has been truely amazing! The work was not hard to do and everything was as agreed :) The location is amazing, especially if you like move in nature (Michele has a bike and cool hiking spots close by). But there's also bigger cities you can get to by bus and train! I will miss this little corner of the world with all it's inhabitants, including Lucy (the dog), Tybby&Zoey (the cats) and of course Michele 🫶🏻

Michele, along with Lucy, Toby and Zoe, have hosted me really well. The private bedroom and the wifi are amazing. Besides that La Vaniere is located in a beautiful (I mean really beautiful! I have been to Patagonia and this place is as beautiful as) regional park named Langedoc. We can ride Michele's bike to many cities around through the bike lane (Voie Vert) that is among the hills and along the river orb. I highly recommend the stay, specially if you want to learn and practice languages and if you enjoy nature. ❤️

Michele is a very sweet person and I loved the time I spent there. The work is not hard to do and she really follows the working hours according to the platform. She is also very flexible about that. I definitely recommend her place. I will miss Michele, Lucy, Tiby and Zoe (her animals) and the small village she lives in.

My time with Michele was such a wonderful experience, I decided to stay an extra week! From the moment I got there I was welcomed and looked after and I am so grateful to say I now have a home away from home ❤️ Michele was very flexible with hours and tasks. None of the work was too difficult, everything was well explained. Thank you Michele for your kindness, our wonderful discussions, good company (including your human and furry friends), delicious food and a wonderful two weeks. I miss you all already and I'll be back ❤️
