  • Description


    We are remodeling an existing place, making it a pleasant environment for guests and volunteers.
    Some areas are still under construction, but most rooms, the rooftop terrace and our little cafe are ready for our clients.
    We are looking for volunteers who can help us in different areas, including reception, tour desk, social media, web design, cooking for volunteers, construction, general maintenance, cleaning, teaching English/French and currently also a ghostwriter to help with a children's book.
    We employ 4 local people that are helping with cleaning, kitchen, reception, and maintenance. Volunteers work together with them.
