This was by far the greatest experience!! Sophie and Charles-Henry welcomed me the first day with such familiarity and kindness that I felt at home immediately. They really were outstanding hosts and friends! the guest house was simply breathtaking with its rich history, beautiful buildings, and endless gardens.. I felt as if I had landed myself into a book! The work was honest and helpful, I really felt as though I was able to make a difference for the guest house. The surrounding area is also fantastic. So, I would highly recommend anyone to stay here!! Thank you again! Á bientôt!!

Martha, we already miss you but we talk about you with Gabriela from Mexico too, like that it's as if you were very close to us., come back when you want.



My experience here was just wonderful. The whole place is stunning and I loved spending my free time walking around the beautiful grounds. The tasks were easy, hours were respected and everything was just as communicated beforehand. Sophie and Charles-Henri were super kind and welcoming, I always felt comfortable and right at home. I truly had a magical time and would definitely recommend :)

My time here was so so amazing, it's such a beautiful place to stay and exploring the grounds is such a magic experience. Sophie was very welcoming and makes sure you have everything you need. The working hours were very well respected and the work was always done together so I never felt alone with a task which was really nice. I will really miss visiting the horses and saying hello to the cats, this place is such a breath of fresh air, I loved it!
