    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    Workawayers will probably learn how it is to live in the country of France, which is very different from big cities.

    The place where we live is surrounded by celtics area, full of history about our ancestors ( Bibracte, a gallo-roman old city, Autun with a lot of Roman ruins) , and not far from us there is also the buddhist Temple of Thousand Buddhas.

    Burgundy is also known for its famous wine, its cheese, its cows, and its many walking roads.
