My experience with Sam and James was beyond anything I could have expected. Under their guidance, my time at their BnB was simply amazing!
I learned so much about the BnB operation, the way of life in France, gourmet food preparation and service, and this lovely, welcoming family.
From the beginning, I felt they recognized my potential (more than I did), and helped develop my confidence and comfort in my role. They went above and beyond, including me on various community experiences. I cannot recommend this placement enough!

I absolutely 10/10 recommend this experience! I learned so much and had a lot of fun. The tasks are not difficult: prepping food/cooking, cleaning up after meals, setting up bedrooms for guests, etc. The hours are about 9-12:30 then 6-whenever dinner ends every day. I loved having a break in the middle of the day to read, swim, go on walks in the area, etc. My favorite part was learning a lot about cooking (Sam is the best cook!!) and the food is fantastic. Sam and James made me feel welcomed and included as if I was family.

Thank you for the best experience! ❤️

I don’t have words to describe how good was the experience. I felt like home since the day 01, like part of the family. That’s the main difference of all volunteering places I’ve been from this one. It feels like you’re helping at home, it doesn’t even feel like a job. So I highly recommend and if you’re into cooking this is the right place

I had the most wonderful experience in Correze! Sam and James are incredibly welcoming and kind hosts. I felt immediately part of their family and part of the holiday experience for their guests.
I was learning everyday in the kitchen with Sam, leaving the experience with so many cooking and baking skills. My key tasks were easy to complete and explained to me, yet each day was varied with something new to learn and do. The countryside around their home is stunning and I had time each day to explore on foot, by bike or by going to local markets with Sam.
Thank you, I can't wait to return!!

Five stars really aren’t enough to rate the experience at Corezze cycling holidays! Sam, James and Noodle welcome you into their magnificent home and make you feel like part of the family.
The tasks are fun and diverse in exchange for everything and more! Some of the things I got up to included planting flowers and veg, preparing guest rooms, serving dinner and looking after the three hens! Sam and James are extremely passionate about what they do and I guarantee you will learn something new every single day! I am so grateful for everything and would return in a heartbeat, THANK YOU!
