Villa Paignon

We are John and Derek from the Netherlands who have recently moved to Montbron in the Charente in the beautiful Northern Dordogne Valley in France. We are looking for enthusiastic travelers/volunteers to help us restore a beautiful old Victorian Maison (mini chateau) Villa Paignon! The house has a rich history and is unique in the department. The house is set in 4 hectares of garden and woodland on the River Tardoire. Behind the house are the famous caves of Montgaudier. We ask energetic Hands-on help, handyman. You do not need to have special skills because the work varies from sanding, painting, demolition to cleaning. We are also looking for help in our forest and garden - mowing the lawn, clearing dead trees, collecting firewood and actually sowing plants etc. if you like to help us for a few hours a day, make the house and garden beautiful again . There is enough time left for walking, cycling or, for example, canoeing or visiting the cave. Are you someone who is handy or likes to be busy in the house, garden or in the forest? We hope you'll want to be part of our small, board and board team and get involved in this great job project.

We treated volunteers as friends with respect, there is no staff for cooking, While cooking is not our best thing we allway's create a healthy meal

Derek and John are two lovely guys with a huge project 'their Chatau' and a lovely dog, Pino!
The project requires all parties to be flexible: whatever is needed, needs to be done. All kind of different handyman tasks, you can choose what fits you best.
There is time and (a lot of space) for yourself (walk, talk, explore).
To me the perfect combination!

this was my first volunteering, and the experience was terrible, we even had to trigger the worldpackers insurance. The works are completely different from the description. they don't want volunteers, they want workers. They even yelled at us, until they technically kicked us out, saying that we had to see the passage because it wouldn't work. From the bottom of my heart, don't go to this place, here on the platform there are so many other completely amazing ones. Any questions you can message me.

We feel very sorry for Thiago & Juliana, they didn't know where France is. Unfortunately we had to babysit them and wish them all the best. But don't expect that they are able to communicate or work a little, they rather like their phone ;-))

Foi a pior experiência da minha vida. Todo o que estava escrito em Worldpackers não foi cumprido, o trabalho é pesado/braçal. Não recomendo essa vaga. Me trataram super mal, inclusive gritaram comigo mais de uma vez e meu namorado foi tratado super bem. Inclusive precisei acionar o seguro da plataforma. Por fim, reclamaram que não estávamos trabalhando sorrindo como brasileiros.
