We need your help in France This once Masters House is being maintained, restored and renovated to be an auberge, or hamlet, a place of learning a place of uniqueness and exchange cultural  where people from all walks of life can experience and learn about France, improve their French, or English, and immerse themselves in the rural French way of life.

The project has been described as “a cultural exchange like no other.” The only criterion is that volunteers should possess a willingness to help and get involved.
