We are an easy going couple living in a very nicely renovated water mill in Brittany, with a couple of acres and direct access to our river. We share our home with 3 well behaved, lovely dogs, (1 Bretagne Spaniel, 1 Collie/English Setter and a Jack Russel puppy) ours is a very peaceful environment. We are situated at the end of a road about a kilometre from the village, with just our dairy farmer friends as neighbours. There is a fair bit of wildlife in these parts.
We both like to cook and if you do too, you are free and welcome to join in.
We are looking for some help in the vegetable garden and garden in general, house, and a little painting and decorating if you are able.
The village is only a kilometre away and is within easy walking distance, there are a couple of bars, 2 restaurants, a large supermarket, doctors, dentists, pharmacy, a couple of hairdressers and 2 bakeries that sell mouthwatering breads and pastries.
We are in cycling distance of the Nantes/Brest canal which is situated close by. (We have cycles for your use).

Help in the house
From time to time we would love to have a couple of volunteers to help us in the garden, working on our organic vegetable garden, helping around the house, general DIY such as painting and decorating plus various other projects on the go. We have recently installed a new turbine to create electricity. If you think you'd like to spend some time here with us, please get in touch.
English and some French
We offer well presented double bedrooms with en suite facilities and all meals are included.
We have bicycles available for our volunteers to borrow and we are very close to the Nantes-Brest canal. We also have some fishing equipment to use if you like to mess about on the river! We are situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty and there are plenty of good walks in the vicinity.
I visit one of our larger towns at least once a week and will be happy for you to come along too, you can take a look around the local markets/shops etc. We also have two extremely good swimming pool complexes in two of the larger towns, if you like to swim.
