The Experience

Nous avons un grand potager pour la consommation familiale et des fruitiers.Les bénévoles s'occuperont de l'entretien du jardin avec Gérard, pourront récolter légumes et fruits avec Monique et réaliser plats, confitures, gâteaux. Ils pourront accompagner les visiteurs, initier des enfants à la connaissance des plantes

I had a wonderful time here. I was touched by their kindness and beauty. It was like returning to my grandparents. I didn't expect it to be this good but they really made me feel happy to be born as a human being. I recommend it to everyone. It's a lovely place

It was an honor to work and live with Gerard and Monique. I genuinely could not have asked for better hosts and a better experience. I went to better my French, and it was a truly immersive experience--fully helped by their patience with me. They were so kind and generous in welcoming me into their home. I did not feel out of place at all! Meals were delicious and fresh; conversations were rich; they gave me tours of major sites in the area while also offering to drive and pick me up from bus/train stations to aid my solo travel; and much more. All in all, I felt incredibly well taken care of.

C'était une expérience magnifique. Monique et Gérard sont hôtes très accueillants et chaleureux, on peut apprendre sur n'importe quel sujet avec eux. Les conversations sur la table étaient très enrichissantes pour nous, on a appris sur la culture, la cuisine, l'histoire française et on a échangé nos connaissances sur les nôtres. Le travail était simple et on a jamais travaillé plus de 5 heures. Les repas incroyables aussi, Monique est vraiment douée. 100% recommandé

Monique et Gérard sont très sympas! On a partagé des expériences, des connaissances et notre culture avec eux ! On s'est senti très à l'aise dans le jardin. Les repas sont toujours délicieux et le travail pas compliqué du tout. Sans doute on a appris beaucoup et on a connecté avec la nature et tous les animaux qu'y avait. Un gran merci de nous avoir reçu! Bisous (le fromage et le vin nous manquent déjà)

Mon temps avec Gerard et Monique a été magnifique, j'oublierai jamais les expériences que j'ai vécu avec eux, on a parlé tous les jours, on s'est amusé et on a partagé notre culture, et j'ai appris beaucoup de choses avec eux. Ils sont très aimables, attentifs, charismatiques et ils the farm des efforts pour me faire part the farm famille et Ils sont sans aucun doute parmi les meilleures personnes que j'ai jamais rencontrées. Le jardin est vraiment beau, les différents types de plantes et d'animaux rendent le the farm unique.
