A fantastic experience!

I participated at La Giraudiere for a three week volunteering opportunity and it has been the best experience of my life. The home is beautiful, the accommodations excellent, meals (and endless coffee!) are fantastic and the host Paul Rice (and his adorable dog Sidney) are so much fun! The environment is very welcoming, positive and laid back. Volunteers work three days a week on anything from office admin jobs to painting, gardening and helping with the restoration. The little town of Brossac is breathtaking and the locals are very kind. Volunteering at La Giraudiere is perfect if you are looking for a place to practice your French, meet people from around the world and/or just get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. You have the opportunity to go on excursions to other little villages and towns, there is a French teacher that gives lessons on Fridays and you also have your evenings plus four days a week off to go and do what you please. I highly recommend La Giraudiere for an affordable way to visit south western France all while giving back to the community. I will come back again one day!
