*** French version at the end of the description ***

In the heart of Occitany, Cordes Sur Ciel - literally “Ropes On the Sky”- takes you back a thousand years to the Middle Ages, times of Templars, Cathars, knights and legends. The beautifully conserved town is perched on a hilltop from where you will have a breath-taking view of the countryside in the “douce France”.
Cordes sur Ciel is a mandatory stop in the pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela, and has recently acquired worldwide renown as “the favourite French town” (2014). Although many tourists visit Cordes, there are few spots for the locals to enjoy.
You will redecorate a square with a fountain, just below the church where locals attend masses, weddings and funerals. The fountain has been covered by brushes and damaged, turning the park into a small marsh. After the workcamp, it will become a place to chill and enjoy for both locals and tourists. The fountain will become a landmark in the town thanks to your intervention!

Accommodatie en maaltijden

You will be accommodated in tents placed in the football/soccer field campsite – bring your warm sleeping bags – and will have access to showers and toilets. The group will share the cleaning tasks and prepare meals together. You will prepare the meals in shifts and participate in the organization of the collective life (planning, cleaning, shopping, etc.). We will encourage the purchase of local and seasonal products.

Locatie en vrije tijd

Cordes Sur Ciel is in the Tarn County, south-west of France near the city of Toulouse. Sunbathed hills and valleys covered by small fields and forests. The beauty and diversity of this countryside presents a great historical, architectural and environmental interest. Outdoors activities such as hiking, archaeology visits, rafting are possible. There is a weekly outdoor market in Cordes itself where the best local craftwork and gastronomy is exposed.


Some of the work may be carried out on scaffolding, but the vast majority of the work will be carried out without. Bring working clothes, gloves, and closed shoes. To enjoy certain outdoor activities, bring your trekking shoes. For the brave ones who want to take a dip in the river, bring your swimming suit. Feel free to bring activities from home such as photos, games, musical instruments, etc.
Foreigners from the European Union must bring their personal EHIC (European Health Insurance Card), and all participants must bring their insurance certificate. If health issues arise during the program, volunteers will need to cover all costs; they will be reimbursed upon their return to their home country.
