We need your help in restoring historical castle in Northern France, close to Arras and the sea, It is a big historical site, which was a school in the recent times, and then abandoned, now family owned.
We are currently working on a number of exciting restoration projects, including uncovering the historic parts of the chateau, restoration of historic furniture, event management. Therefore we decided to create a workshop out of it. You'll learn how to restore and rebuild a castle :-) Last year we had a huge Medieval fest organised with the help of volunteers!
We also have started a little eco-farm in the back gardens.
We are open to the public during the summer months.
Feel free to the challenge...!

We absolutely love working with workawayers from all over the world. It is our experience that we can pass new skills of the Chateau experience. There is so much you can learn, this place has a lot of history and this is a beautiful area where can take walks. You can practise languages here too. It is possible that during your stay episodes will be filmed so be aware and not camera shy.....
We need enthusiastic helpers for the gardens. It would also be a benefit to us if you have a archeology or architecture background but not necessairy.
