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

In the heart of Occitany, Puycelsi 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 breathtaking view of the countryside in the “Douce France”. Puycelsi is close to the pilgrimage trails leading to Santiago de Compostela and has recently acquired renown as “one of France’s nicest villages”. One of Puycelsi’s oldest monuments is its bridge, built in the 14th century.
Your intervention will help rebuild this 30-meter stone bridge that used to connect the village with other valleys. You will learn the skills of traditional craftmanship, masonry and heritage conservation. This landmark in the small town will be preserved thanks to your intervention!

Accommodatie en maaltijden

You will be accommodated in tents placed in the football/soccer field campsite – bring your sleeping bag – 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

Puycelsi 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, archeology visits, rafting are possible. There is a weekly outdoor market in Cordes itself where the best local craftwork and gastronomy is exposed.


Bring working clothes, gloves, and closed shoes. Bring your sleeping bag. 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.
