At the charentais lavoir (France)

Workcamp in southern France, close to Bordeaux

Together with international volunteers, the French community of Montendre works every year to restore its heritage and contribute to enhancing intercultural exchanges.

This year, the municipality is committed to enhancing and renovating the masonry of the Lavoir.


09-30 Sep 2022

The project

Accompanied by two technical supervisors, you will help with the restoration of the lavoir. The aim will be to carry out traditional masonry work: grouting, digging joints and then re-grouting with lime mortar. You are also doing roofing work to repair the roof of the washhouse, which is in very poor condition.

The place

The workcamp will take place in Montendre, 65 km from Bordeaux. From here you can visit many historic cities such as Jonzac, Blaye, Rochefort, La Rochelle or Bordeaux. You can also use the surrounding forests for hiking or enjoy a good time on the beach on the Gironde coast.

During the camp you will be accommodated in the Maison de Bateleurs in Montendre, where long-term volunteers from our partner organization Solidarités Jeunesses also live.
