  • Description


    We are a non profit Inn in the Pyrenees which aims to host trekkers and to participate to local social dynamic. The place proposes a bar, a restaurant and dormitories and try to be alternative. We particularly pay attention to the choice of products for the restaurant and bar and to the cultural and activist program we display.
    A team of 15 people including 4 employees runs the guest house but the project is also supported by many other people belonging to the same organization and involved in others projects (circus tent, cooperative lab, etc).

  • Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The valley where we live is very diverse and dynamic. The helpers will be in permanent contact with many people from both our NGO and the other people living here. Some exchange might also be possible with farmers, bakers, etc.
    What you gonna learn here is:
    - How is the life in a deep valley?
    - How can a inn work collectively?
    - Many practical things such as cooking, gardening, walking in the mountain, selecting plants and fruits, transform them, etc.
    - You will get an experience of collective life with many different people: how is the daily life, how do we make decision, which mediation do we use, etc?


  • Help


    We welcome any helpers interested in our project from May to October. We will be happy to host you at least 3 weeks. Missions for helpers can be very diverse. The main missions take place outside the inn with gardening, organizing concert, fixing stuff, picking fruits and mushroom in the mountain, preparing jam, etc.

    Helpers usually do around 4h a day for 5 days a week. We provide food (except meat) and a two beds'room in a collective house 15 minutes walking from the guest house. We live quite collectively; We usually dot not host more than 2 helpers at the same time but we sometimes have more. Public transport can bring you up to Saint-Girons, 25km from our place. Then we can arrange something to pick you up or you can do hitch-hicking.
