Volunteer in France

volunteer groupLooking to volunteer abroad? well at La Giraudiere you can come and volunteer and at the same time acquire some new useful skills and improve your French.  At La Giraudiere we are restoring and transforming the buildings into a small learning hamlet, a place where you can come and learn French and learn about France and the French way of life. La Giraudiere was once a masters house which became neglected and derelict. Since 2007, when the volunteers program started, People from  all points of the globe have arrived and  volunteered their help. Our doors are open to all, all ages and all backgrounds, all nationalities come and contributed towards the project.
The project is more than 60% finished and there is still a lot of work to do to do.  It is not just the building that we need your help with! there is the grounds  and the courtyards, the housekeeping  and the websites, the blogs and the marketing you name it and for sure it needs doing at La Giraudiere. You can read more about our Volunteering Abroad project at Volunteer in France Prices start from as little as 18 euros per day and all programs include meals,  accommodation, transfers, excursions, group activities, French lessons and a whole lot more.  La Giraudiere will provide that unique location for that unique French experience.
