  • Description

    Description

    With our two children, we live in the nice village of Saint-Mathieu-de-Rioux, in the Basques region of Bas-Saint-Laurent. We built our house in a row on a beautiful wooded and landscaped lot. The forest trails refer to a network of trails leading to monumental sculptures designed and installed in nature by Luc Malenfant, cabinetmaker-sculptor and owner. We also do lodging in the forest.

    Avec nos deux enfants, nous habitons dans le sympathique village de Saint-Mathieu-de-Rioux, dans la région des Basques au Bas-Saint-Laurent. Nous avons construit notre maison dans un rang sur un magnifique lot boisé et aménagé. Les sentiers sylvestres font référence à un circuit conté en forêt nous faisant découvrir des sculptures monumentales conçues et installées en pleine nature par Luc Malenfant, ébéniste-sculpteur et propriétaire. Nous faisons aussi de l'hébergement en forêt.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    As we do lodging, travelers will be in contact with people from all over the world. In addition, the village and the region have many tourist attractions, in large part because of the beauty of its territory (river, lakes, mountains, countryside, forests, etc.) and its festivals (fairy tales, music, etc.) . Also, they will be able to become familiar with the language (if they are not French speaking) and especially, to learn more about the forest, the layout of the forest and the work of cabinetmaker-sculptor.

    Comme nous faisons de l'hébergement, les voyageurs seront en contact avec des gens d'un peu partout dans le monde. De plus, le village ainsi que la région comportent plusieurs attraits touristiques en grande partie à cause de la beauté de son territoire (fleuve, lacs, montagnes, campagnes, forêts, etc.). Aussi, ils pourront se familiariser avec la langue (s'ils ne sont pas francophones) et surtout, en apprendre davantage sur la forêt, l'aménagement de celle-ci ainsi que sur le travail d'ébéniste-sculpteur.

    It involves participating in the development and maintenance of trails and sculpture sites (road cleaning, tree pruning, various forestry work) as well as renovations and maintenance of buildings present on the site. In short, we are looking for people who like to work physically and outdoors (even if there are mosquitoes!) Work in the studio as support for the realization of monumental sculptures or furniture may be possible.

    Il s'agit de participer à la construction d'un bâtiment de style maison de hobbit ainsi qu'à l'aménagement et à l'entretien des sentiers et des sites de sculptures (nettoyage des chemins, élagage des arbres, travaux forestiers divers). Bref, nous recherchons des personnes qui aiment travailler physiquement et dehors (même s'il y a des moustiques!) Le travail à l'atelier comme soutien à la réalisation des sculptures monumentales ou de mobilier peu être possible.
