Located on the banks of the Rhone river, the property covers over 24,000 m and consists of an 18th century mansion called Maison Foray, old stables and a wooded park. The rehabilitation of these buildings will make it possible to alleviate the medical and social needs of the municipality, while making it part of an intergenerational dynamic. A medical center and a structure to accommodate maternal assistants will be established in Maison Foray. The rear part of the park will house a residence for seniors comprising some twenty dwellings. Since 2019, the stables have been hosting a social centre for local youth. The work this summer will enhance the surroundings of the main buinding (Maison de Maitre, Master s House) and the creation of footpaths through the park. You will work on the rocky mound located near the House and continue the cleaning work carried out by local volunteers in 2019 and then develop the trails. From the hill, you will have a breathtaking view of the Rhone river and the Pilat hills. You will be supervised by local volunteers who will be happy to share with you the history of the site and their technical knowledge.
