An unforgettable experience - the rural setting and warm hospitality of Alain, David, and Floriane - and meaningful work! Alain is such a positive and patient person to work with, and David is very open-minded and caring, Florian always shares great jokes and stories from her work. Also, love to Farah, Uli, Uta, Lili, Betty, Boop, and all the chickens. Last but not the least, like everyone else has mentioned, David is an incredible chef, you will miss the food so much after you leave....

I had the pleasure of experiencing an unforgettable stay in the picturesque countryside of France, hosted by two extraordinary French gentlemen. From the moment I arrived at their charming 17th-century farmhouse, I was enveloped in an atmosphere of warmth and hospitality. The hosts were incredibly welcoming, hospitable, and amiable, making me feel like part of their extended family from the very start. Their kind-hearted nature created an instant connection, and I immediately felt at ease in their company. Throughout my stay, David and Alain ensured that every meal was filled with pleasant co

Alain, David and Floriane are wonderful hosts and I felt in a very friendly and familiar environment. The tasks were clear and Alain always taught me how to do it and explained me if I had any doubts. David is such a wonderful chef and was always there for anything I needed. Floriane was really helpful, kind and friendly. They all were very patient in helping me to practice and improve my French. I met very interesting people in my stay that made this experience even better, both French but also from other places. I really recommend this experience and hope to return and see Farah, Uli & Uta!

Alain and David are both such nice people! I met really nice locals while staying there and enjoyed the work I was assigned. David and Alain were welcoming and never made me feel out of place, it was an amazing first experience for me. David, thank you for all the amazing food :) Thank you both for an amazing experience! Just something to note, they are situated in a small town and will have to drive you to the train station should you want to travel on your off days - they don't mind doing this, it's just something to note :)
