    Description

    You are invited to experience the countryside lifestyle in a magical farm surrounded by vine-yards and an old forest called "La Vivetrie", in the district of Charente in the south-west of France, near Bordeaux.

    The farm has been owned by the family for more than 160 years and specializes in the production of wine for cognac. This summer, we will inaugurate the first year of the volunteering program in the farm. Gilles, along with his daughter Nour, will be responsible for and guiding the various projects.

    The program allows the participants to taste an authentic, rustic French experience for a week, while working in a variety of areas, such as:
    - Renovation of an antique bread oven
    - Gardening and basic earthwork
    - Carpentry
