This is a very important year, because you will finish building the outer walls of the kilns! Your goal will be to rebuild the west-facing outer wall, the east-facing outer wall and the kiln's decorative top. Inside the building, you will remake the joints between the stones. The work will be varied and there will be plenty to do! Supervised by a technical instructor, you will learn traditional building techniques using local stones and lime mortars.
In tents built for 2 (bring your sleeping bag) in the village near the leisure center. Access to toilets, shower facilities, a kitchen and two rooms of activities in the leisure center nearby. When the weather is good you will eat your meals outside. The group will be sharing the cleaning chores and preparing meals together. The budget will be allocated to the group leader and you will participate in the preparation of dishes with good products from the market and local producers. On the first evening, you will be welcomed by the locals who will have prepared local culinary specialties for you!
Davayat is a big village in the Auvergne region situated on the plain of Limagne, at the foot of the volcanic mountains. Situated at around 20 km north of the city of Clermont-Ferrand, it is a wine-producing region which offers many hiking opportunities, canoe/kayak trips and swimming in the lakes. Your stay will also include seeing concerts and shows in the town of Riom. For more information have a look at: and
For seven summers now, international volunteers have been coming to Davayat village to learn how to build with stones and lime mortar, to discover the region and share meals with the community. Concordia has been participating in the renovation of Davayat's former lime kilns since 2011, working alongside with a local organization called Cynorhodon 135, set up by friendly volunteers. You will see how much the work has progressed! This year again, the organization’s volunteers are looking forward to showing you their region. You will share friendly moments and good meals with the inhabitants.
Bring working clothes, walking boots and a backpack. Nights can be chilly, so bring warm clothes and a good sleeping bag. You can also bring recipes from your home country, musical instruments and games. You will get around Davayat on foot and by car. Foreigners belonging to the European Union must bring with them a personal EHIC (European Health Insurance Card), and everybody must, in any case, bring their insurance certificate. If health issues happen on the project, volunteers will have to pay for it, and then be reimbursed once back in their home country.
