    Description

    Hi,

    Built in recycled woods, the hostel offers accommodation mostly to European and Canadian traveler. The main building (reception, kitchen, bar) is very unique and original. It offers an extraordinary place where nature and smooth atmosphere are merging to ease nice discussions and great encounters. The team is also offering activities of cannyoning and sea fishing.

    The helper can expect to participate in various task such as helping at the reception, cleaning or light manual work. We encourage people to touch everything but if you have specific competences (ex: arts, yoga ect..), we’ll manage to help you to express your talents. The work atmosphere is good and fun is there! Obviously, the team is offered housing and food.

    We priorize long-terme helpers (2 months or more). Those will access adventure activities for free. We are encouraging et supporting helper showing initiative and involvement in the team. Finally, to work with the public, we ask people to speak both french and english.

    We certainly think your experience with us will satisfy your expectations,

    Cheers!

    Bonjour!

    L’équipe de l’auberge est à la recherche de Workawayers pour la saison 2020 (1er mai au 1er novembre). L’Auberge propose un hébergement en bois recyclé à une clientèle principalement Européenne et Canadienne. Le bâtiment principal où se trouve l’accueil, la cuisine et le bar est totalement unique. Il offre un cadre de vie extraordinaire où la proximité avec la nature et l’ambiance sympathique favorisent les échanges et les belles rencontres. Nous offrons aussi des activités de canyoning et de pêche en mer.

    Les Workawayers peuvent s’attendre à participer à diverses tâches d'aide (accueil des visiteurs, entretien ménager, travaux manuels). La polyvalence est de mise mais, si vous avez des compétences spécifiques ( travaux manuels, arts), n’hésitez pas à nous en faire part. Nous ferons de notre mieux pour mettre en valeur vos forces! L’ambiance est bonne et le plaisir est au rendez-vous. Évidemment, l’équipe est logée et nourrie.

    Nous donnons la priorité aux Workawayers de longue durée (2 mois et plus) lesquels auront accès aux activités d’aventure gratuitement. Nous encourageons et récompensons les volontaires qui font preuve d'initiative et d’engagement. Aussi, pour travailler avec le public, il est préférable de parler français et anglais.

    Nous sommes certains que votre séjour avec nous surpassera vos attentes,

    Au plaisir!
