We have been collaborating with the lovely town of Collobrieres for four years now. Concordia supports the municipality in developing its renovation projects of the St Pons church, a heritage treasure in that village of the Var department. The town is much engaged in working with the youth, as its neighbours, will welcome you with open arms!
Work: Take part in restoration of the cultural site of Collobrieres, a village in Provence, also called “The Chestnut Capital”, in the heart of Provence. The district has asked an architect to develop a project to enhance the exterior of the Saint Pons church, in order to restore the pebble pavement which leads to the church. The project will aim to support the district and local associations in carrying out the renovation of the dry stone pavement, traditionally called calade, in that luminous church dating back to the 11th century.
Accomodation and food: You are going to be accommodated in a shared house, in a shared room or in a tent outside of the building. During the week, lunches are prepared by an organic local canteen of Collobrieres district. French volunteers will be able to share their internet connection through a hotspot and laundry will be done by hand. You are going to share different collective task: you are going to prepare all your meals during the weekend and breakfast and dinner during the week. The budget is going to be handled by your leaders, you are going to participate in doing shopping and preparing the dishes, promoting local seasonal products.
Location and Leisure: Collobrieres is a small village of 1900 habitants in the heart of the Massif des Maures, located on a hill close to the sea and beaches. This location, with its impressive views, is perfect for hiking, visiting chestnut plantation, swimming in the local swimming pool and the sea while enjoying the village festivities!
