The Experience

We are a family of 2, living in a pretty little house located in Provins, a medieval city classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and would love to welcome a volunteer for an enriching cultural exchange. We really enjoy music and cultural outings. The biggest help I need at the moment is the preparation of meals, for lunch and dinner

Very nice family and house, I was able to see the village of Provins because everything is close and easy to visit. My working times were flexible (as long as I attended my duty of course). Stephanie is a very dynamic person and helped me progress in my french, we played chess, cards and had a good time together. I also loved the cats so much, they even slept with me! I am grateful and would definitely return in another opportunity.

It was so nice meeting Stephanie and her lovely cats. Provins is a medieval city, so old and beautiful to explore. This is a nice experience to improve your cooking skills and to learn different games with Stephanie :)

The experience of cooking for Stéphanie and Jean- Francois for a week was really great. They asked me what ingredients to get at the grocery store and let me make whatever came to my imagination. They were hospitable and kind to me during my stay. I really enjoyed the Medieval city of Provins and it's rich history. I enjoyed spending time with their two cats Cahuete and Ninja. Overall the experience was really great for me and I would recommend it to anyone!

Volunteering with Stéphanie was my first Worldpackers experience and couldn't be better. She welcomed me like a part of the family. Since the tasks took only couple hours per day, I could explore Provins , which is magnificent medieval city with original French charm. I would definitely recommend this project for those, who are looking for peaceful atmosphere and who would like to explore the culture by staying with French family in cozy town, eating Brie and learning French. I am really grateful Stéphanie for these amazing couple weeks that I spent with her family in Provins🧡

I don't even know where to begin… Stéphanie and her family were welcoming from the first second and I felt at home right away. All the hours were respected, I had a lot of freedom and independence with the working hours, and outside of those times they gave me lots of recommendations for things to do. Truly a home away from home, I miss everyone already and would come back in a heartbeat. Thank you Stéphanie, JF, Agnès and of course Ninja and Cahouète for lots of French practice, laughs and love ❤️
