It was in 1981 that a group of young architecture enthusiasts created the Adichats association for the safeguarding, animation and enhancement of the heritage of the Southwest.
Today, this association has consolidated its action and expanded its field of intervention.
Always very involved in the restoration of heritage via volunteer sites, it shares its know-how through training courses. It gives taste to future generations of knowledge of history through the reception of heritage classes. She animates the Château de Villandraut site through various cultural events. It acts locally for the integration of people in difficulty.
Come and discover the site during the game festival (end of May), the fool's day (July 14), or simply during heritage days.

For us, a worksite of volunteers is a stay during which everyone can get their hands dirty by participating in a tangible way in safeguarding our heritage.
It is the way to get involved in the protection and transmission of a stone heritage.
It is also about learning to live in community with volunteers from all walks of life.
It is an opportunity to discover a region while being useful.
It is a stay which makes it possible to acquire techniques, to act really for the safeguard of a site by discovering its region and by making meetings. Guaranteed wealth!

Since 1999, we have been hosting heritage classes. For a day or for a stay, the students set off to discover the Middle Ages, archeology, architecture, stone cutting, heraldry, the medieval garden ... Workshops designed and suitable for classes from kindergarten.

Very quickly, Adichats was recognized for social utility. To date, recognition as an Atelier Chantier d'Insertion allows us to support seven people throughout the year to help them rebuild themselves while developing know-how on construction sites.
