Our gay friendly guest house has 5 bedrooms and a small cottage. We are located in the countryside in a very quiet environment close to vineyards and a forest. The 5-hectare garden is made up of a park with old trees, an orchard, a vegetable patch, a greenhouse and flowerbeds.

It was my 5th volunteer experience (my first Worldpacker) and I could say it was my best experience since now. I've been in the guest house for 15 amazing days. Benoit and Marcial are kind and amazing people and hosts. The job is not hard and the hosts was always working with me. Marcial is a true chef. Really! That place is wonderful and the hosts took me to see the regions and castles near Sambin. I recommend this volunteer 100%. Thank you for everything, guys! ♥️

Martial & Benoit made me feel like "Le Roi du Château" (the King of Castle), sharing wonderful delicacies from Chef Martial and a world collection of wines from the sommelier Benoit, I felt like the kingdom of Le the guest house was mine!! The vibes all the time was impeccable, learning about the regions of France and its history was exquisite since they are experts on the subject! Total recomend for all volunteers, task not hard and complicated, full of free time to know al arounds, your own room and privacy.

I can not believe the experience I've just had, I didn't want to leave at all. Martial and Benoit are the kindest and nicest people. I've loved every minute of my stay there. I had the opportunity to improve my French a lot, learn about French culture, and enjoy the company of great people. The amount of work is mild and you are always working side by side with Martial and Benoit so you actually don't feel like you are working, just helping out. Martial is the best chef and he cooks delicious meals. Martial and Benoit, thank you for giving me the best experience and the best time.
