Werk

Commit yourself to the heritage of Chateaudouble, a small and typical medieval village. For nature and heritage lovers! The village inaugurates this year an open-air green theatre on an esplanade overlooking the village and its listed monuments with a magnificent unobstructed view. The place will host artists, concerts and many other events for the inhabitants and tourists, participating in the dynamism of the village. The site being vast, several restoration works are planned to vary the pleasures! Your work will consist in sorting stones (salvage and purchased ones), restoring the dry-stone walls, cleaning the area (ground clearance) and constructing the area’s entrance.

Accommodatie en maaltijden

You will be accommodated on site in tents with access to a building for communal living, toilets and meals. Remember to bring your floor mat or air mattress and your duvet. As we do not have a bathroom on site, we will install solar showers. The group will share the cleaning chores and prepare meals together. The budget will be allocated to the group leader and you will participate in the grocery shopping and in the preparation of meals, prioritising products from the market and local producers.

Locatie en vrije tijd

Like a real eagle's nest, overlooking the Nartuby gorges in the upper Var, Chateaudouble has retained its authentic medieval appearance. Chateaudouble takes its name from the presence of two castles in the Middle Ages, each of them located on a bank of the Nartuby. Only the remains of the Tower, a square keep, dating from the 12th century, which overlooks the village, still exist today. Perched on its narrow plateau, Chateaudouble is a village that invites you to nonchalant discovery of its alleys, wandering between the houses and climbing up to the ruins of the castle, on the plateau of Ste Anne. Various leisure activities will be proposed, such as visits and walks in the village, swimming in streams and gorges, hiking, local sport like petanque or the participation in the village festivities. We will try to organize an introductory climbing trip or an adventure course with a local association. As the commune is isolated with little public transport, most of leisure activities will take place on site.

Organisatie

Chateaudouble is a medieval village with a very rich heritage and sumptuous monuments, some of them being even listed. Very dynamic and invested in the development of its historical and natural heritage, several projects are currently undertaken by the village. This is a renewed partnership with the commune of Chateaudouble for the second year. Our current project is part of a development plan for the plateau of Ste Anne, on the heights of the village, which will become this year an open-air theatre with stone terraces and dressing rooms for artists in the middle of old cobble stone ways, dry-stone walls as well as an old chapel. Our workcamp and your commitment will enable us to restore and enhance this magnificent site for the benefit of the population and tourists.

Vereisten

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 arise on the project, volunteers will have to pay for it, and will then be reimbursed once back in their home country.

Opmerkingen

Remember to bring clothes and shoes for work and hiking. Nights can be cool, so bring a good warm duvet. To avoid mosquito bites, remember to bring mosquito repellent and loose, covering clothes for the evenings. As we are in an area where it can be very hot during the day, bring a hat or cap, sunglasses, sunscreen, a small backpack and water bottles. As the village is far from the meeting place and has no public transportation, it is imperative to be on time at the meeting point! For the public meals and the open house, you can bring a few specialties from home that are easy to carry with you.
