You will rehabilitate the roof of a mill by replacing parts of the structure and of the roof. You will need to refurbish it, add the missing slate, and restore the mill wall. In order to do this, you will have to sort the stones and then place them to rebuild the damaged or degraded areas.
You are accommodated in tents, with access to sanitary facilities and a kitchen. In turns you will take part in the preparation of meals and the organisation of your daily life (scheduling, cleaning, shopping, etc.). We will encourage you to purchase local and seasonal products.
Bareilles is a charming village in the Hautes-Pyrénées. Located on the outskirts of the Pyrenees, you will have a breathtaking view of the mountains as well as charming lakes. Located an hour’s drive from Tarbes, you will have the opportunity to get to know the welcoming local population and a village that has kept its authentic charm. For any nature lover, Bareilles is the perfect place to withdraw from daily life and relax while enjoying the surrounding forest.
You will participate in an international workcamp organized by Concordia and the town of Bareilles, in the region of Hautes-Pyrénées. The idea is to rehabilitate the stone bat of a mill and restore the roof of the mill.
Consider taking clothes and shoes for work (also rainproof in case of rain). Since you will be staying in tents bring a warm sleeping bag and a good mattress. Nights are sometimes cool and humid. If you want, you can bring your own tent. And remember to take a bathing suit as well in case we might go swimming. Don’t hesitate to bring specialties from home such as photos, games, musical instruments, etc.
