*** At this time in addition to Helpxers with construction skills we're also looking for people to join our small team organising and running our Christmas Market, so Christmas skills on a HUGE scale appreciated! ***

If you are a couple or friends travelling together and over the age of 25 we would love to host you at the château for at least 2 WEEKS but preferably longer.

We bought this wonderful castle in the Loire Valley which was suffering from a spiral of neglect and together with Helpxers like yourself, we have worked tirelessly to renovate it to a 21st Century standard however there are several essential and urgent jobs still outstanding.

We have need for Carpentry, Forestry, Masonry, Gardening and Decorating skills. We even need artists to restore and or embellish some of the painted beams. There are also opportunities to manage the swimming pool and to cook and clean for the other volunteers. Generally speaking, with an estate of this size we have opportunities ... more inside

We prefer to speak French as not all of us speak English. We're very happy to help those who enjoy practising their French conversation, however rudimentary. Written communication is fine in English if it's easier.

We live on 2.5 hectares of meadow and woodland in the hills around the beautiful mountain of Bugarach.

We have quite a low impact way of life with compost/dry toilets, 12v renewable power and a vegetable garden that provided most of our food. The mains water supply is very restricted but we do have a beautiful roll-top firebath in the beginnings of a bathroom (another project) that overlooks the mountains. .

We live quite close to/amongst nature & spend a lot of time outside. We have a cabin for the family & there is a cabin (small), caravan (large) & tents for friends & HelpXers. We also have a levelled clearing that has been used for Yurts & Tipis - so if you have one bring it along!

Our projects are mainly centred around ecological construction, including:... more inside
