  • Description


    It is an eco project in rural place at Antananarivo, Madagascar. The optic is to develop a place towards sustainable development through sustainable tourism, in mountain locality.
    On its top, the mountain offers a panoramic view on all the capital and its surroundings.
    My way is to introduce and to perform permaculture step by step. My work is focused on living this field and managing tourism in the localities.
    The work in place where the project is about to help for constructing eco place, design it in and out.

    It is the ecolodge under construction, gite specially designed for the project.

    We offer 2 meals between (breakfast lunch and dinner) per day for 15-20 hours per week.
    Workawayer can sleep all nights in place but in the week end, we don't really need help so it's good to take the luggage with you.
