  • Descripción


    Immerse yourself in history! Come visit the maintenance and renovation of the castle, the Renaissance castle built on the remains of a 15th century fortified house. Welcoming and transmission are the pillars of our project: passionate about history but with a resolute look into the future, Hugues wants to reconcile the past and the present by experimenting with self-construction and new farming techniques, by developing self-consumption and self-sufficiency, while preserving the solidarity and the world that underpin his philosophy of life.

    Accomodation and food are provided for 4 hours of work per day, five days a week, and participation in the preparation of meals. You will be accommodated in the rooms of pilgrims (we are on the way to Santiago de Compostela) under the roofs and have dinner with Hugues and his children... , direct descendant of builders of this monument listed historical heritage. On the menu: crisp anecdotes, incredible events and legendary stories!
