*** VERSION EN FRANCAIS DISPONIBLE EN FIN DE DESCRIPTION *** *** French version at the end of the description *** After a first year of work, you will take part in the second phase of the renovation of the Mail fountain in Graçay, in order to allow its re-watering. Located in the heart of Berry in a green setting, the work is taking place in a village whose inhabitants have been hosting restoration international workcamps of the local heritage for many years. Built on two levels, the first basin of the fountain was renovated last summer: the walls and accesses are in new condition. Your first job will be to consolidate the flat stone pavement of the first basin with lime joints, before tackling the masonry of the second basin, which was cleaned during the winter and badly damaged, using traditional techniques. The realization of the construction site will allow the municipality to launch with the inhabitants a work of cleaning of the ditches downstream from the fountain, in order to allow again the drainage of water and the resurgence of ecosystems today weakened.

Accommodatie en maaltijden

You will be accommodated in individual tents at the village campsite. You will have access to sanitary facilities containing separate toilets and showers for men and women at the campsite, dedicated exclusively to the use of the group during your stay. This permanent building will be used in case of bad weather. The marquee of the campsite will be at your disposal to prepare and take meals, thanks to the installation of an equipped kitchen area. With the budget allocated to the leaders team, you will take part in the grocery shopping and the preparation of the meals, by privileging healthy and local products. You can bring your own recipes to share them with the group. You will have the opportunity to collect fruits and vegetables from local producers and from the market.

Locatie en vrije tijd

Located 2 hours by train from Paris, the commune of Graçay is an island of nature in the heart of the Berry countryside. Point of convergence of the surrounding waterways, you will discover the marsh of Fouzon with its rich biodiversity, a place of freshness and relaxation during the heat of summer. The inhabitants will take you to discover the unusual places of the region: the former great mills, the twisted bell tower of Saint-Outrille, the ochre stone of Saint-Georges-sur-la-Prée, the unique collection of the photo museum... The numerous hiking trails nearby will allow you to take a deep breath surrounded by nature. You will also have access to the aquatic center located in front of the campsite to refresh yourself after your days on the work site.


The workcamp takes place in a rural environment. For practical and ecological reasons, travel between the place of accommodation and the work site will be on foot. Remember to bring gloves, clothes and shoes suitable for outdoor work. Don't forget to bring a sleeping bag and a floor mat to sleep on, as well as summer and rain gear, a bathing suit and toiletries. You can bring board games, a musical instrument or any other object you wish to share with the group. Foreigners belonging to the European Union must bring with them a personal EHIC (European Health Insurance Card), and everybody must, in any case, bring their insurance certificate. If health issues happen on the project, volunteers will have to pay for it, and will then be reimbursed once back in their home country. *** RETROUVEZ NOS DESCRIPTIFS EN FRANCAIS ICI: *** *** French version here: ***
