Hidden in the hollow of a green valley, the commune of Coly - St Amand is located in the heart of the Périgord Noir, a territory rich in history! Composed of two former municipalities that have decided to gather, we will contribute in bringing these former separate territories together. The ruins of the abbey castle in Coly, a testimony to the valley s rich past, preserve beautiful architectural elements (bread oven, vaulted room...) and beautiful secrets remain to be revealed. The abbey of St Amand is proof of the power of the church on this territory throughout the Middle Ages. After several clearing workcamps on the castle, we arrive this year to the historical layers of the ground. And for the first year we will also work around the abbey of St Amand. Manage by an archeologuist, you will work on the revelation of the past centuries. Festivals, night markets, village festivals will be held throughout the summer and you will work with local volunteers to set them up. You will discover the hospitality of the population and the charm of the landscapes and local heritage, by organizing with the other volunteers and other groups and leaders your program of activities.
