    Hi everyone! 😃

    I’m André, half French/Argentinian. I settled a couple of years ago in the wonderful Haute Valee de l’Aude, so attracted by a beautiful community, very open minded and alternative, while creative and active.

    I had the chance to get this amazing property offering an outstanding view on the Pyrenees; a bit isolated from any other houses, offering peacefulness... and plenty of liberty to do, create and share....and party 🥳🤩.

    Last year we launched our first mini Festival, .. and it has been a great success; creating a magical venue combining family friendly activities in the day time... and moving toward some good party at night time.
    We had more than 500 people coming, which was great for a first venue.

    We are already plenty working hard for the 2023 festival taking place end July, and I’m looking for few motivated and experienced beautiful saouls to help us to work on the infrastructure works.
    I’ll be fully into that project from beginning of July until the festival itself.

    Ideally, looking for people already experiences in usage of power tools, with some knowledge in electricity and electrical networks, some plumbing (PVC) and constructions in wood ... but most of all motivation and great intention ✨. There will be quite some site decoration to do as well 🌺

    The house is divided in different areas; some permanent residents live here, and I have my private part of the house; it’s quite big and comfortable, but depending on who’s visiting, I might not always be able to provide a private individual room; in this case you might be accommodated in tents, but be sure you will be comfortable even in a tent 🤗.

    I love cooking... but definitely not vegetarian... my Argentinian stomach keeps on calling me for BBQ’s 😋. Though not a problem for vegetarians, but Vegan might be a bit more difficult 😔.

    Summer season in the area is super busy with constant events, venues, outdoor activities that can be done... and it will be my pleasure to organize some activities together. Besides, I love sharing and exchanging... and you will notice that I talk a lot...
    At home there is always something happening, friends popping by... it’s very social and community is great...

    If you have your own car, then you will enjoy even more; I might sometimes not have full availability for leisure activities; it’s going to be quite busy, since we put all our energy for the very best of this venue 🥳🤡🤩.

    If you are interested, get in touch with me and we talk about it; I can further explain what it is about!

    Really looking forward, it’s going to be another great and super creative experience too.

    The commune is Saint Benoit. You’ll find it easily on Google maps.

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    In the area, you will be meeting with several nationalities and cultures; I’m half French and half Argentinian and have been traveling the world ... and I love sharing my personal experience. At home you will hear French, English and Spanish. The Brit community is quite important in the area, but as well from some other European countries; if you are keen in speaking and learning Spanish, you will have the chance then by sharing with some good Argentinian friends too...And in the summertime it is difficult to choose – parties every weekend, plenty touristic attractions, markets and a close-by lake to go swimming.

  • Ayuda


    This year the festival will be end of July, so I’ll need a few volunteers only for the preparation of it for 2 or 3 weeks in July; mainly improvement of the infrastructure support: electrical networks, plumbing, fencing around... clearing up the site, trimming, building and repairing dry toilets.

    There will be quite some decoration preparations to de done too, painting, creations.... and any other task that comes around.

    I’m looking for people with some experience in usage of power tools, woodwork and ideally electricity too; then hands on and good will is great to start with 🤩.

  • Alojamiento


    Accommodation wise it’s going to be busy (friends and volunteers coming to support) but for sure I try to keep a certain living standard at home and moreover food is a daily treat (specially for non-vegetarians ;)). For accommodating workawayers we try to keep a decent standard of living conditions, but the closer we will get to the date of the festival, the more busy it will get, and I might have to ask you for some flexibility for the accommodation; worse case it will be a nice tent in some sweet spot in the property.

    Once we are in touch I’ll be able to better explain.

  • Algo más...

    Algo más...

    The area offers multiple outdoors activities such as hiking, horse riding, swimming/canoeing/sailing in the nearby lake of Montbel; natural hot springs nearby too. A bit further out there are beautiful gorges for the hot sunny days, a lot of concerts and private events organized here and there.... and soon here in my new place.
    The Mediterranean Sea is two hours away and the first ski resorts one hour away from here... but any destination from home requires a transport mean, since the property is isolated on top of a hill and first public transport is 15 to 30 min away; of course I’ll can drive you when you desire move in the area.
