What do you love about working at the Chateau?

The main reason I love working at the château is the location and the history surrounding the place. There is so much to see and do in the area.

Then there’s the fact that every year we have new staff arrive which brings the opportunity to introduce all of this to yet more people! From the museums to zoos, landing beaches to some amazing towns – Calvados is so diverse. As long as you have the motivation to get up and do something there are so many places to see, and I’d be happy to show anyone!

Why should people work for Travelbound?

If you want to experience living and working in another country, the Chateau and Travelbound provide the perfect opportunity without having to be fluent in the language…but a little French does go along way! As well as the opportunity to get out and see and do things on your days off there are also plenty of staff days to help you make the most of your experience – fancy dress nights, camp firms, staff disco/Karaoke, IE’s….

What is your favourite activity to do on your day off?

Random explorations on my motorbike.

Fun fact – super talented at fire poi
