The experience with David was a great opportunity to see how French people live. I did local programs and not the standard tourist ones. France is a wonderful place, I was delighted. As for work, I helped with the garden and also with the renovation of the house. I believe it would be interesting if the future volunteers applying for the vacancy had real construction knowledge to be able to help more and so the house will be ready soon. I was able to practice English with David, Spanish with the other volunteers and I could also hear a lot of French.

It has been such an amazing experience in all aspects... you are connected with nature since the first minute. David is a great great host, he is an excellent chef, everything is fresh and natural in his cooker. Staying with him you can learn plenty of things about everything, he has fantastic conversations, he knows perfectly the surroundings for picking mushrooms and show you the landscapes of Britanny. People from the zone are very friendly and I could meet a lot of neighbors. I am really happy to have chosen this project in Melrand with David , I highly recommend it.
Thanks David !!!!!!!

Not sure how to write a short and concise review in under 600 characters, so first of all I need to say THANK YOU to David, once again. It was my first experience on WP & absolutely fantastic.
If you are open-minded and up for adventures I 100% recommend spending some time with David. He is one of the most generous, kind, caring, adventurous and smart people I have met. The work isn't demanding at all, and you will feel safe, respected, and cared for from day 1. I have too many good memories from this time in Brittany; people like David are so rare nowadays.

I have no words to describe this experience. David is a very dear and caring man who loves his garden and his food. I went alone and felt very safe and welcomed, as if it were at an uncle's house. David shares his life with us and teaches us about different subjects. Thank you for everything! Merci ❤

Very nice person and great chef, you will really enjoy what he cooks. It wasn’t much to do what it was a problem. So he decided to do a deep clean, that it hadn’t been done for months and it wasn’t on his profile. He also wants you to be around all the time, there is not public transport which I knew in advanced and it was ok for working days , but for him that includes your days off, so that means that you are no supposed to go anywhere, what he told me when I came back from my days off ( just once in two weeks), when we talked before about I’d like to visit Mont Saint Michel.

That was my first worldpacker experience and it couldn't have been more amazing. David is great and treated me with a lot of respect, I learned a lot from him!

The work is rewarding, the food is just wonderful (David is a super chef!), the landscape is breathtaking, impossible not to feel at peace during the walks. He took me to see Brittany and it was fantastic. I met some of his friends, incredible people, who were always very patient with my poor French.

Certainly one of the best experiences of my life, a piece of my heart will stay here. Thank you so much for everything, David!!

David will do everything to make you feel good, but the farm is very isolated, there is nothing to do around and it will be only you and him. I do not recommend it for girls travellig alone.

Having had nearly 70 single girls here (using another hosting site - Workaway) this is the first time I have been told it is not suitable!! I offer a safe and friendly enviroment which is mostly very well appreciated. So I guess it depends on each person.
