    Description

    We're a couple, Patrick (born in 1956) and Pascale (born in 1960). We love music (Patrick plays the accordion and Pascale the tinwhistle), and nature. Patrick is a beekeeper, but without bees for the time being. Pascale is a crocheter and a spinner (with a drop spindle, not yet with a wheel).

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Travellers will learn eco-friendly techniques (if they don't already know them...), we will share what we love (music, beekeeping, crochet, spinning).

    We will love to learn from them anything they will be willing to share.

    In their sparetime, travellers will discover a region which is rich culturally. In our village, there is a medevial castle to visit, and also a small heritage center called "la ferme d'antan" (farm of yesteryear). There are two nice medieval towns to visit about 30 kms away. In the summertime, there are lots of festivals and also typical "fest noz" in the evenings (celtic music and dances).

    The sea is 25 kms from our home.
