WE STOPPED OUR ACTIVITIES, I'm sorry but we don't host new volunteers anymore.
All the best to all of you guys, safe travel!


We are an association that originated from a Circus company which evolved. We live between Apt and Saignon, in the Vaucluse (84), in this charming place that we created. We have a bar, a restaurant, a concert room, a gallery, a garden and other workshops. We are proud to be all volunteers and make this place live since four years without any grant from the state.

We always need help for everything, all year long. Feel free to come for a few days, or a few months. We like to exchange with people, learn more from you and teach you what we know. It depends of the volunteers but we speak French, a little of English and Spanish. If you know a little bit of French its always better.

We organize a concert every saturday in winter and almost every Friday in summer. Rock, jazz, blues, punk... Every style comes here. With one meal and one cocktail which changes every time. We try to stay cheap in order to offer the opportunity to everyone to come. We have a assortment of delicious Belgian beers as well.
On fridays, there is a "cantine". One volunteer prepare the meal and whoever wants can come eat for cheap, don't stay alone, come eat with us!


If you want to have an experience in a cultural area and help an association which fights for survive, you will be in the good place here. We have many things to do in our place. You can find a lot of different works and never get bored. You can learn how to be a bartender, a cook and meet artists and musicians. We are also open to new ideas to make the place better.

We are 4km away from Apt, a little town who has got a big and beautiful market on saturdays, its accessible by the cycling track thats just behind the restaurant. The long cycling track goes from Les Beaumettes until Forcalquier in the Alpes, its a really nice trip to do when the sun is not too hard. You can borrow our bikes if you dont have one. There is a lot of little villages around to visit. We are also not so far to Le colorado, that is a nice walk too. We would be happy to give you advice for visiting the region.

The nearest train station is in Cavaillon (40min from Apt), and there is a few of buses that goes between towns. Hitch hiking works good too.

We offer the accomodation and the diner every day of work. Most part of our meals are organic and vegetarian (but its obviously possible to add meat if you want to), we are used to eat vegetables we have in the garden.
You can learn everything we do here, you could be a bartender, cook, take care of the garden and animals, or build constructions, paint, restore... The things that you can learn is unlimited.


We are full until September, Thank you!

Feel free to contact us,
We are waiting for you!
