About the workproject

We need 2 volunteers

La Merveille is a busy bed and breakfast located in the small Normandy village of Le Luot, and has been welcoming visitors from all round the world for ten years. We need help with preparing the rooms, communicating with our guests, and offering meals at breakfast and evening time. We welcome as our guests, individuals, families and groups. We work as a team and you will be taken to see all the major tourist sites and helped to enjoy the beautiful Normandy countryside and coastline.
Our guests come to see the Mont St Michel, the second most visited tourist attraction in France, the beautiful ports of Saint Malo and Granville, and the Landing Beaches associated with the Second World War. Come and join us!

I am a retired schoolteacher from England and have managed the Guest House for nearly 10 years working with my niece Samantha. I am a keen historian and love taking our helpers to see the places of interest in both Normandy and Brittany. We have an instagram page at lamerveille_normandie.
