Chalais local market

Every Monday in Chalais there is a traditional French market which has been ongoing for centuries. The first Monday in May, together with the Erasmus and international volunteers, I set off from La Giraudière in Brossac at 09.00 on the 10 kilometre trip in order to participate in this local ritual of visiting the Monday market.

American Volunteer Discovers Brossac, France

Arrival day at La Giraudière for this American Volunteer in Brossac, France was greatly anticipated. I signed up to volunteer months ago and researched every aspect of this trip to France. Among many visits to France, I’ve checked out most of the major towns and tourist attractions but have never spent much time away from large metropolitan areas. My name is Valerie and this year I’m seeking a different kind of adventure. I am a retired teacher from Michigan with a desire to expand my horizons. Volunteering for three weeks to take part in a cultural exchange with others from around the world is a dream come true.
