Holiday with a difference – Brossac South Charente France

Holiday with a difference in Brossac South Charente France

Looking for an opportunity for a holiday where you get to mix with the local community, live for a while with a mixed group of international friends, do some work to assist in the project which is in progress in France maybe do some renovation of a beautiful old country house and improve your French by attending the French lessons. Volunteer at La Giraudiere Brossac and you will experience all of this in an idyllic, peaceful location where the worries of the world just drift away into the ether.

Brossac South Charente France offers the best location in Charente. It is at the crossroads convenient to the Dordogne, Charente Maritime and Aquitaine – each no more than 15 minutes away. You can enjoy your time exploring the nature and history of Brossac and the South Charente while not missing out on the many day visits to the major destinations of Bordeaux, Cognac, St Emilion, Angouleme, Aubeterre and more! On first glance, Brossac Charente appears to be a sleepy little town with a few locals and an old roman church. You will very soon find a multinational population where you’ll overhear conversations from “locals” speaking French, Dutch, flemish and English – together planning local events and going about their daily business!

As a Volunteer at La Giraudiere Brossac you will have the opportunity for a Holiday with a difference in Brossac South Charente France. You will participate in a weekly French lesson and then go out and practise your new greetings with the locals. They are very receptive and help you out if you get stuck. Paul, the driver behind this amazing venture, provides lots of opportunities to attend local events, volunteer to assist the locals in setting up events and mingle with the community a much as possible. Fridays to Mondays are work-free for those who want to travel and see other places such as those mentioned above.

Last week Paul organised a BBQ for his current group of volunteers and invited members of the local community. The volunteers made a variety of salads and dishes of their choice and provided a delicious meal which was enjoyed by all, complemented of course with a variety of wines including pineau, a local delight.

It is a safe environment and you will have others to do things with if you like or you can do trips or country walks on your own if that is your preference. An experience not to be missed!
