Frankrijk | Restauratie en natuur
Samen met 12 andere vrijwilligers ga je voor 18 dagen naar een restauratie en natuurproject.
Het project duurt van 31 juli t/m 18 augustus.
Supervised by an experienced mason, you will continue the conservation of the remains of the castle of the Earls of Comminges: clearing of the overgrowth, masonry, building of small stone walls. The site hosts several hundreds of visitors in the summer months.
You will stay in tents in the grounds of the castle. Important: housing conditions are very simple and rudimentary (dry toilets and solar showers), notice to the lovers of peace and nature. Access to the castle is only by foot (10 minute steep path from the village, watch out for your travel bags – prefer a backpack). We cannot accommodate you if you arrive before the starting date of the workcamp.
