Give a hand on an eco-farming project in Eastern Pyrenees, France

workaway in france

Eco-project in France is looking for enthusiastic and positive people to give me a hand on an eco-farming-tourist project in the eastern Pyrenees.

La Solane – Tree Houses and Camping, French Pyrenees

A beautiful camping site with tree houses in the French Pyrenees mountains

General Information

Walking and hiking possibilities are endless around la Solanes campsite.

A large number of tracks and trails offer all sorts of walks to explore beautiful nature and to enjoy breathtaking views. If there is enough interest, we organise a longer walk over the Spanish border to the neighbouring villages, Maรงanet de Cabrenys or Tapis, where we all have a drink and eat in one of the local restaurants.

We also organise transport to get home again afterwards.


To cool down in summer you can go down to the river that runs over the property and swim in one of the natural pools or one can lay on the grass in the shade of the old apple tree orchard next to the river. Small children can play safely in the sandy shallow parts of the water. In the forest the children are free to play around, to build huts and follow the trails of wild animals or to hunt for our donkeys. Several farms in the area offer horse and pony tracking trips, for both beginners and experienced riders.

The area around la Solane, has a large variation of things to do. Just over an hour drive you find yourself at the Mediterranean beach, walking through picturesque fishing villages like Collioure, or laying down at a perfect hot sandy beach. Cรฉret, with its modern art museum and the large and colourful market on Saturday, Prats de Mollo and Perpignan, full of history. Most villages around here have swimming pools and at the Lake of Darnius you can rent canoes and swim.

Going just a bit to the south, over the Spanish border the atmosphere and culture changes immediately. Figueras, with the Dali Museum, the cathedral and old town of Girona and off course the Spanish coast, all places worth to visit. Even Barcelona you can reach from la Solane, but be prepared for the shock: within 2,5 hours you are from wilderness in a real metropolis.
