Frankrijk | Restauratie en natuur
Samen met 11 andere vrijwilligers ga je voor 21 dagen naar een restauratie en natuurproject.
Het project duurt van 18 juli t/m 8 augustus.
We will be cleaning and arranging stones from the ruins of the castle on which the Church of Saint-Firmin was built. Another part of the job is to cut back the undergrowth around the fortified walls and to open up the site to a neighbouring building. Alongside a local organisation called “Friends of the museum”, you will work to maintain this timeless historical place. This year, we will clean, restore, and do masonry work in order to bring light to this patrimonial site that is a part of a picturesque environment worthy of interest.
In a hosting centre accommodated with shared rooms, bathrooms, and kitchen.

An incredible medieval village with enthusiastic locals, and a magnificent welcoming environment, Avreyon is as real, as it is beautiful and great ! For the third year in a row, the villagers are eager to meet the international volunteers team. In Aveyron, time is not the same : it goes by differently and it's in Salmiech, a small charming village, where you will feel this timeless spirit. In this village, a church was built from the remains of a castle, and for many years, it has been the home of the rural museum of Charroi. Classified as a museum of France in 2002, it presents a beautiful collection of ancient wheels, antique carriages, carts, and diverse artisan tools, all which date back to the golden past. It is around this edifice that the work will take place. Don't hesitate. Come join us on a journey into the past of great Aveyron!
