We are a couple in the 20's and we are starting a project to restore an antique auberge (hotel and restaurant) in a beautiful place in Chambon-le-Château. The auberge is located on the verge of a small river, in between big old trees in a large green land.The region is a one of the less populated in France. The landscape is all about big green mountains, woods, lakes, rivers and inactive volcanoes.
We would love to receive good vibes people willing to recreate this amazing place together, show you around, make friends and exchange life stories. There are horses and we are also looking forward to receive someone who could also work with them. We would love to receive some creative people willing to join us in the journey.
Help with Eco Projects
DIY and building projects
You will learn about gardening and restaurant organisation. You can also learn about machines and building. On the other hand, you will be able to know from inside how French culture is in this area, about the nature around and traditions. We can offer a very interesting cultural exchange in a beautiful place. We are a Swiss-French and Argentinian-Spanish couple. If you enjoy being in a quiet place in nature, this can be perfect for you. In addition to delicious French meals, wine and cheese.
There are different projects to be done in the Auberge. We are doing cleaning of the areas, gardening, restoring furniture and building reparations.
