Deposits place allocations

If your application is accepted you will receive an email from us confirming so. It will confirm that a place has been reserved for you and indicating the dates of your expected arrival and the place of your arrival. With this confirmation you will also receive a link so that you can reserve your spot by paying a reservation deposit. All deposits are handled via the secure payment service of PAYPAL.

When you have paid your deposit PayPal will issue you a receipt. It is wise to email us to let us know you have paid. Once your payment is received, your place is changed from “allocated” to “reserved” and you can start to make your travel plans, knowing your place at La Giraudière is confirmed.

Remember that your allocated place is up for grabs until your reservation deposit is paid, so if you foresee a delay then let us know.

IMPORTANT – DO NOT MAKE TRAVEL PLANS UNTIL YOU HAVE PAID YOUR DEPOSIT AND YOUR RESERVATION IS CONFIRMED.

Make sure you have checked the volunteering fees and that you understand what is included

Once you have completed your travel plans send us an email to confirm your arrival date and time so that we can meet you in Chalais station or expect your arrival.

Volunteers Visa Applications

North and South African countries note. You will need a visa to visit France, even as a volunteer. Once your deposit is paid you will receive a receipt via PayPal. We will send you a signed letter confirming that you have reserved accommodation. There is a 50€ charge for these letters which is not refundable if your visa application fails. So important to have good insurance in place.
