    Beschreibung

    Our house is not directly on the beach (about 3km)
    Quiet place, large garden, with apple trees, plum trees (...), strawberries, and two hens gathering around.
    Great for people in a campervan or caravan

    Two lively kids (10 and 12) to play with! They learn basic English at school and are also interested in learning basic Spanish or German or...
    We like kayaking, paddling, surfing (bodyboard), rockclimbing, playing on the beach, birdwatching... and also playing boardgames and reading a lot, especially in winter.

    I can pick you up at Morlaix train station (TGV), at Roscoff harbour for those coming by ferry from Ireland or England.

    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. I've 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. I want my kids to feel as being citizens of the world, so it's good for us to exchange with people from elsewhere.

    I'm part of the team which launched a local currency (oct. 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).

    As I'm also a "workawayer", I would like to split my 2020summertime, hosting people here, then going elsewhere in Europe for a few weeks.

    You'll learn proper French language (including slang if you wish)
    We enjoy cultural exchanges, we can also exchange about ecological ways of gardening.

    We would like to improve our LANGUAGE SKILLS (I can speak English, little German, little Spanish).

    Unterkunft

    Shared bathroom (shower).

    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. Althought 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...
    Possibility to camp in the garden. (in summer)

    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).
    PLEASE let me know if you come with your car or bike...
