Location: Béceleuf, Deux-Sèvres, 20 km north of Niort.
Leisure activities: Convinced by the richness of this cultural experience, hosts will organize excursions in the region and animations with the local residents, such as: visits to the Poitevin marsh, concerts, art exhibitions, and time at the swimming pool. You will also be able to visit the ocean in the towns of La Rochelle, Poitiers, Niort, etc.
The cottage is located in Béceleuf, a small village near the Poitevin Marsh, located 70 km from the Atlantic ocean, between Nantes and Bordeaux. Rochard is an old farmhouse converted into a rustic cottage by an association that hosts groups of children, hikers and campers in a yurt. This place, surrounded by nature, respects the environment and demonstrates an approach to sustainable development. Thus, various projects have been organized by the Association of Camping Club of Deux-Sevres, including the establishment of a phyto-purification tank and dry toilets adapted for communities, in the context of past international workcamps. This association is a loyal partner of Solidarité Jeunesses Poitou-Charentes, and it will celebrat its 12th international workcamp this year!
