OFFP/OFFS/OFFR-VILLAND GO Villandraut
Students spend two weeks of this three-week GO program working on the restoration of the Chateau de Villandraut, a 14th-century castle in southwestern France, about 25 miles from Bordeaux. Activities include stone-cutting, masonry and general maintenance of the chateau site. Thematic study will vary with director's expertise. Included are field trips to such sites as other historic monuments of the same era, a vineyard, etc. French being the official language of the worksite, students will be required to make a commitment to speak only French during working hours. The two weeks on the site are complemented by time in Paris, where students visit several medieval landmarks. 2 SH. CC: Cross-Cultural.
