Have you ever wanted to explore a French castle? How about helping to save one?
With GO Villandraut, a unique study abroad opportunity, you can spend two weeks restoring the Chateau de Villandraut, a 14-century castle 25 miles from Bordeaux.
While you’re cutting stones for repairs, you also learn about the social structure of the Middle Ages and the historical preservation of France. Would you have been a knight or a knave?
When you’re not taking care of Chateau de Villandraut, visit monuments, vineyards, stone quarries and more castles. It’s the perfect study abroad program for a history buff or someone who wants to see what it would’ve been like to live in historic France.
Don’t worry about not having construction skills. You’ll get hands-on training and will walk away with invaluable skills in preservation. In addition, you’ll explore Paris and sometimes other locations in France.
