Couple who have just bought a chalet alpage. It is a bit of a wreck and we need some help. We are green orientated, but not fanatical. We have many projects, from tidying the place up making it sound for our first winter, create a path to the mountain stream. Work out how to get water from stream to house, we do have mains water as well. Building a treehouse Making a good garden, making a summer kitchen, fixing the roof. There will be something you can do. Ten years ago at our previous place we hosted over 60 volunteers and seem to keep in touch with quite a few of them.

Because the tasks are so varied you will learn lots depending on your interests. We eat together , talk and hopefully laugh. In reality I dislike this question I do not know what you will learn, but we do want you to enjoy yourselves
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
Anything to everything . Inside and outside. All help is welcome . we feed you well and you will have plenty of time for the things you want to do in the area. Everything from gardening to path building, bit of cooking if that is your thing. We even had hopeless helpers whom have just been good company.
rough and ready at this stage. But plenty of hot water!!
Maybe a tent, or granier but you will have a bed and clean duvet
