    Hello,

    our family place is great for laid-back people, enjoying calm and nature.

    Quiet place, large garden, with apple trees, pear trees, plum trees, strawberries, brambles and two hens gathering around. Lot of mint, lots of wild grass :-)

    We would love to host someone who can teach us how to use an electronic keyboard !!

    Two lively kids (11 and 13) to play with! They learn basic English at school and are also interested in learning basic Spanish ... One plays the trumpet, the other the electric guitar. They stay with me about half of the week.
    We like kayaking, paddling, surfing (bodyboard), rock climbing, playing on the beach, birdwatching... and also playing board games and reading a lot, especially in winter.

    We try to reduce our impact on the environment, but still have to make compromise.

    I worked one year in the UK (foreign language assistant), and one year in Guinea (solidarity project), also a few weeks in Germany and Bulgaria. Always preferred working abroad than visiting as a tourist, so i think the Workaway program is a great idea. I sometimes leave my home to go "workaway" myself!

    I'm now a primary school teacher, with not so many opportunities for long-lasting stays abroad. I teach French to children who recently arrived in France. It's good for us to exchange with people from elsewhere, it helps my kids to feel as being citizens of the world!

    Part of the team which launched a local currency (October 2016), in order to promote local trade, organic food, and to communicate about economics issues. (project similar to Bristol Pound, or Chiemgauer... at a smaller scale).

    I usually don't plan things much in advance, and I'm happy to adapt to friends' wishes or as the weather changes ...

    We get many messages which are "copy and paste" sent to many places, please read our whole page;
    If you really intend to come, please let me know in your message the dates and the way you travel.

  • Unterkunft

    Unterkunft

    We recently moved in, many small repairs to do, and it's a bit messy and partly unorganized yet!

    Bedroom
    Shared bathroom (shower).
    Shared meals

    I mostly use organic products in the kitchen, but there are many exceptions.
    We regularly eat eggs and fish, but I would be happy to learn how to cook for vegetarians.
    When my kids are at home, we could sometimes have chicken or pork sausages. (strict vegan diet might not fit well)

    No television here.
    My elder son plays the guitar, the youngest the trumpet. Although the house is really quiet most of the time! We just got an electronic keyboard and would love someone able to teach us!

    There's no pet inside the house, except a few harmless spiders and some flies (summer). Two hens in the garden.
    I'm not ready to host dogs in the house (sorry)

    We are not used to cigarette smoke, so we'll ask you not to smoke inside the house...

  • Was noch ...

    Was noch ...

    Close : Morlaix, Chateau du Taureau, Plougasnou, cairn de Barnenez (one of the oldest human buildings in the world!)...
    A little further : Brest (Oceanopolis), Ile de Batz, Perros-Guirec...
    IMPORTANT: local public transport is poor in our village, but very good as soon as you reach Morlaix (buses and trains).
    I can pick you up at Morlaix train station (TGV), at Roscoff harbour for those coming by ferry from Ireland or England.
    PLEASE let me know if you come with your car or bike...
