Duravel (1000 inhabitants) is a very touristic place in the south-west of France, in the Lot valley, 40 km west of Cahors. Duravel is located between two wooded hills overlooking many wine estates. You will have the opportunity to go on hikes and walks, visit night markets, go on wine tastings in castles or visit some sightseeing (Roc Amadour, St Cyr la Popie etc.).
Duravel has a very rich 2000 year old history. It was founded by the ancient Romans because of its strategic geographic location between Bordeaux and Lyon. Many remains are still visible today, in spite of the many religious wars that took place here (1596). The city would like to preserve and restore its famous historical heritage, and more specifically its 160 meters high Middle-Age battlements that protected the city during war against England in the year 1369. You will be working on these battlements. It is the 5th consecutive year that Duravel and its local population are warmly welcoming an international workcamp.
This camp may have some physical work.
Make sure to bring gloves, working clothes and working shoes. Bring warm and rain clothes, hiking shoes, and a thick sleeping bag (nights may be chilly). Sleeping mats will be lent to you. You will have the opportunity to go swimming, remember to bring your swimsuit!
