Open to everybody, International volunteer workcamps give you the opportunity to take part in Mediterranean heritage safeguarding, in Provence in a special atmosphere of sharing and international meeting.
Over a period of two or three weeks, volunteers live together and participate in a work programme every morning that will enable them to receive basic training from professionals in stonework, restoration and consolidation of Provençal and Mediterranean constructions.
