Where to start...?
This was my very first volunteering experience and it was the best decision I've made.
Correze is a real paradise (and I am from France!...).
This family is one of the most welcoming I have ever met.
Their premises are some of the most charming, clean and welcoming that you can imagine.
The tasks are numerous and diverse, fun and not boring at all, and flexibility is totally possible!
I have been taken to tons of different places (walks, car, bicycle...) as if I was a new family member.
Samantha, James and William will definitely remain in my heart forever!! (^_^)

Great experience, the best! Nicest people, so kind and wonderful. Luxurious accommodations and INCREDIBLY good meals. Fabulous dinners with wine. Yummy breakfast, lunch, and afternoon tea with cake! Many fun trips exploring the area. Sam took me to village markets, medieval towns & treated me to local foods. I learned lots about French history, culture & cuisine. And top-level cooking lessons! Sam and James are warm and generous; there is much laughter & good music. The work is very reasonable and fair. I would return in a heartbeat — it doesn’t get better than this.
HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION.

My month in Correze was simply amazing! I truly felt like I was part of the family. Most of the work didn't even feel like work because I was learning so much and meeting so many people. Sam's always making sure to keep us entertained and really (really!) well-fed. I also got to visit so many places around us, truly hidden gems. Hope to come back soon!

Sam and James received Rudá and I as an exception (the job can be done by one person) and even more because I'm vegan and it made Sam's life harder to think about what the guests and I could eat at dinner, but she always cooked the best food for all of us!
The tasks included gardening, housekeeping and learning chopping and folding skills for life haha
Also, they took us to see the wonderful view from the top of Dordogne Valley and to walk around the city, it was lovely!
I LOVED spending 3 weeks there, I didn't want to leave but we're meeting again for sure! Recommend it!

My experience at Corrèze Cycling Holidays with Sam and James was amazing! The b&b is located in a very small village with not many options nearby but we always had something to do. Sam was always trying to teach us something new and giving us cooking tips. She is an incredible cook, and as they provided all the meals (including the lovely supper she prepares to the guests) we had the greatest food during all our stay! Sam and James are really patient, generous and understanding, I can say we really felt at home there. Thank you for everything, guys! I hope to visit you again soon.
