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.

Ranchstay OPTION

If you are keen on working with horses, ponies 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 likely if you have a lot of experience!

French language lessons

Do you wish to brush up your French with additionnal French lessons in a language school in Paris or Lyon? WEP can organize it! Contact us if you are interested.
