Accommodatie en maaltijden
The group will stay in tents with acccess to showers and dry toilets. Food will be provided by the organization, and volunteers will cook in teams. Meals will be had under a large tent, or in the castle in case of rainy days. Volunteers will have at their disposal a fully equiped kitchen and two activity rooms.
Attention ! For this project, you will bike your way to work. The road is quite flat, so though it’s necessary to know how to ride a bike, the ride will not be strenuous!
Locatie en vrije tijd
Location : Sorbier is a small village in Auvergne Rhone Alpes region in the Allier department. Surrounded by trees, it's the perfect place for people who love hiking, with amazing views of historical monuments typical of our region ! The name « sorbier » comes from the small trees that one can see dotting the landscape.
Leisure activities : Afternoons and weekends are collectively planned with the whole group. If you like spending time in the city, Moulins and Vichy are located around 40 kms away. If you’re more of the countryside type, don't hesitate to discover the region on foot or by bike, explore the banks of the canals, swim, and take advantage of local festivities and cultural events.
