Experience life on a French farm. Discover the everyday life of a farming family while improving language skills! In exchange for accommodation and meals, participants will do farm work (+/- 25h/week) like fruit-picking, caring for animals, grape harvesting, selling products at the market... Helping on a farm is a fabulous way to discover the French way of life !

If you are keen on working with horses, poneys or donkeys, how about going on a ranchstay ? Most tasks will be related to the animals but also to the daily farm work. Horseriding cannot be guaranteed but is most likely if you have a lot of experience !
