    WE ARE SET UP UNTIL THE END OF 2022 BUT PLEASE FEEL FREE TO APPLY FOR NEXT YEAR ALREADY

    Hello,

    This is Katia (or maybe someone else from our small but wonderful team). We are on a mission to give a new life and purpose to this 12th-century castle by turning it into a Coliving and Coworking space for digital nomads and remote workers from around the world.

    After a corporate career in marketing and 10 years of slow nomad life, while also working on the constant restoration of the castle with my partner, family, friends and volunteers, I'm now spending most of my time on the project of restoration and preservation of this historical place and turning it into a home for digital nomads and remote workers from around the world.

    A few years ago we also created a non-profit association for the preservation of this patrimony and managed to turn the castle into a friendly and elegant space for people from all around the world who enjoy art, travel, culture and history. The purpose is to restore, maintain and promote the natural, man-made and cultural heritage of Normandy.

    It is a great project and a unique human adventure!

    We need volunteers for different tasks on a regular basis.

    All professional work is carried out by paid contractors, but we always need extra help.

    We are looking for easy-going, open and reliable people who would like to help us do this and become part of our family.

    WE ARE SET UP UNTIL THE END OF 2022 BUT PLEASE FEEL FREE TO APPLY FOR NEXT YEAR ALREADY

    We need general help around the house (storing, keeping things organized, laundry, basic cleaning (we have a cleaning lady for the daily & room cleaning), taking out the trash/recycling (by car), driving around for shopping & picking up and dropping off co-livers, helping with the garden and cooking lunch once a week.

    For the tasks outlined above, we are happy to accommodate one individual.

    The commitment is about 20-25 hours a week, since we are a place where everyone is working remotely, we encourage volunteers who have a part-time remote job, e.g. writing a thesis or similar because the environment will be very productive for them.

    PLEASE ONLY APPLY IF you have a driving license and are comfortable driving on a daily basis (automatic gearbox car).

    Our property is located 3 hours drive from Paris, in the heart of the Norman countryside, close to the famous Sainte-Mère-Eglise and the D-Day beaches, an excellent base from which to explore the attractions of the region.

    There are lots of beautiful animals in the surroundings of the property - cows, horses, deers, hare and wild animals - it is the perfect place for nature lovers.
    The nearest small town is 5min by car, also the site of Mont-Saint-Michel is 1h30 from the property.
    You can organise day-trips and other activities with the colivers and use the car we have on spot when it doesn't interfere with shopping or other plans for the house.

    On spot, we have yoga mats which the volunteers can use, some basic gym equipment, bikes, also a lot of books in different languages and a huge park for walks and jogging.

    We also have stable wi-fi and a coworking space.
