Inside a lovely little French village, the castle of Montaigu le Blin is an impressive medieval fortress, classified as Historical Monument. It is located on the top of a hill, overlooking the countryside.
Since 2002, volunteers have been participating, every summer, to the restoration of the castle. These last years, the fortress has regained its beauty! Since the 80s, volunteers come every year to restore and protect the castle.
These last coupl of years, the volunteers restored the masonry of the Chambers of Lords and developped the medieval vegetable garden at the bottom of the Lord's tower. This year, it's your turn to live an experience back in time!
Participate to the protection and enhancement of this breathtaking heritage! Within the castle, you will realize various works of restoration of walls (ramparts, towers) using traditional techniques and help maintain the vegetation (clearing bushes, etc.) as well as many other varied tasks.
Beyond this work, you will reflect together on sustainable development using traditional techniques in the restoration of the fortress, but also in the daily life of the group. Campleaders will guide you along the project. You will also take part in the touristic activities of the site by welcoming the visitors (tourists and local inhabitants) in the castle and explain the work , show the progress you have been doing the last few weeks!
Protecting this piece of heritage takes time, and a lot of energy. Come contribute to its rebuilding !
Accommodation is in a cottage in Montaigu le Blin, 5 minutes walk from the castle. You will have to bring sleeping bag. You, volunteer, are actor/actress of your project !
