    We are a welcoming team of people working out of a stunning 18th century chateau in the beautiful countryside of Normandy. We provide and facilitate learning/work placements for students from various organisations and backgrounds, of varying ages and in a number of different occupational areas, as well as offering a new and creative approach to holidaying and working with the land. We are always on the lookout for volunteers who are keen to roll up their sleeves and get 'stuck-in' to whatever the day presents.

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    You will sometimes have the opportunity to meet and work alongside people from various backgrounds and cultures. With a strong ethos on being eco friendly and self-sufficient you will be exposed to, and included in, a whole range of ideas, methods and ways of thinking. We believe that by working in partnership with our visitors and in harmony with the land in all of our areas of activity, we will achieve a negative carbon footprint.

    We are looking for help in areas including gardening and horticulture, we have approximately 10 acres of land that needs maintaining, an allotment area, which needs cultivating, weeding, picking and most importantly eating! We also have three terraces of which we have exciting and elegant plans for that will require clearing, landscaping and pruning. Construction and general maintenance will include various building projects on the site such as carpentry, stone masonry, pointing, plumbing, painting/decorating and general labouring. Other duties may include animal care. Alongside this we are preparing the project for the installation of a glamping site and need to clear and prepare an old stone barn to become a communal indoor space with shower and toilet facilities.

    We are situated in the lush landscapes of Normandy in the region of Orne. We are within walking distance of the small village of Frenes. The nearest town is Tinchebrey, a typical French town offering all main amenities including bars, restaurants, a cinema and of course patisseries. With the hills of Swiss Normandy just around the corner offering stunning national parks along with winding rivers and rock fronts, a whole host of activities for tourists are available including canoeing, rock climbing and hand gliding. Along with its rich culture and historical sites there will be plenty to get involved in and visit. All staff here are open minded, happy, friendly and welcoming. We expect all participants to be respectful of fellow volunteers as well as students and staff. We have policies and procedures in place that we would expect you to follow with respect and honesty. You will have the opportunity here to build self-confidence and work as a part of a fun and energized group as well as developing your own initiative to work independently and complete tasks.

    We are in a very rural, agricultural area of France and some people may find this to be isolating. If you think you may feel this way, it might be an idea to consider coming with a friend. Additionally, there is very limited local transport, by arrangement we may occassionally be able to assist with dropping off/picking up from a location but it is not something we can incorporate into our offer.
