    Burgundy 1h30 from Paris (by train)

    Hi! I'm a photographer - anthropologist, currently lost in the world of cultural wonders while crafting my anthropology thesis. Beyond that, I happily volunteer with the lovely folks at Pim Pam Pum, an awesome student association championing social causes for those in need. Now, I'm turning a quaint riverside cabin in Burgundy into my eco-haven for thesis redaction. Exciting times ahead! 📚

  • Help


    I am looking for someone who could help me with the entire remodeling of the house, as well as with some tasks, primarily assisting with actions and some garden work. I am familiar with some construction techniques, and I am also a designer, but I need an extra pair of hands to achieve my goals for redesigning and renovating my little 16m² cabin

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The location is a mere 1 hour and 30 minutes by train from Paris, making it an accessible and enchanting retreat. Getting to the cabin is convenient from Laroche Migennes train station, just a pleasant 30-minute walk. Alternatively, if arriving by bus (stop at Laroche Cydrone), it's a short 10-minute stroll along a beautiful path by the river. For those with their own vehicle, direct access by car is also available. Volunteers are welcome to bring their own caravan, van, or car, and if needed, I can provide a car for local exploration.
    In their downtime, helpers can explore the scenic wonders surrounding the cabin, engaging in leisurely strolls along the riverbanks or discovering the nearby picturesque villages.
    Additionally, the cozy cabin environment encourages relaxation and creativity. Helpers can indulge in personal projects, photography, or simply unwind with a good book. The collaborative spirit ensures a unique blend of work and leisure, fostering a holistic experience that goes beyond remodeling tasks. Join me for a memorable cultural exchange amidst the beauty of Burgundy! 🌿✨
