Since 2019, we’ve worked on the renovation of the cottages that have been abandonned for more than 20 years. In order to continue renovating them, the elements affecting the cottages have to be tamed ! Essentially, water from the embankements and falling rainwater is moving gradually towards one of the cottages. It is important that we manage the embankements by manufacturing wooden walls and supports, and to construct drains around them to clear the area of water. With the help of a technical supervisor, we’ll be working with wood and in landscaping. The time spent at the worksite will be around 30h per week.
Accommodatie en maaltijden
Housing will be in individual tents, that we furnish and provide matresses for, on the campgrounds of the hamlet of Vaunières. The campgrounds have access to showers, restrooms, and the kitchen. There’s no WIFI, but you’ll be able to meet people from all over the world ! You’ll take turns cooking, that way we’ll be able to taste a number of different specialties ! Here, we pay attention to what we eat, and to reduce our impact on the planet, we try to eat a maximum of local products and we limit eating meat to twice a week. Community life will be organised together : organization of menus, grocery shopping, activites, etc.
Locatie en vrije tijd
Location : Le Hameau de Vaunières, 6km from the village St Julien en Beauchêne, is 23km away from the main city, Veynes. Grocery shopping, which will be conducted once or twice a week, will be organised using our vehicles.
Leisure activities : You will be in an exceptional location to discover the joys of hiking among the mountains, its rivers, its lakes, the farmers markets, and festive events organized in the surrounding villages (depending on programming). As a group, you’ll decide the activites and outings that you want to set up (subject to distance). Once a week, the welcome center generally organises an evening of music with homemade woodfired pizzas.
