I’m looking for volunteers to help me with building projects and maintenance on our small farm, and also to help with looking after our animals - dogs, cats and alpacas.

I have many years’ experience in building design and construction and I’m happy to pass on what I’ve learned.
Having lived in this lovely part of France for many years, we have a view of life here that's a bit different. We're always interested in meeting new people and would enjoy sharing what we've discovered here with you.
We enjoy cooking and trying new food experiences, so if you’d like to share your own cooking skills and food culture with us, that would be great.
My partner works with the fibre from the alpacas and is happy to share her skills too.
We speak English at home, so if you want to improve your English, this is your chance!
Anything from helping with pointing the walls of old stone buildings to caring for animals!
There is always something to be done here, whether it’s helping various building projects, maintaining grassland and fencing or feeding and looking after our animals. Enthusiastic and willing helping hands are what are needed - this isn’t hard, but it can be physical so you will need to be reasonably fit.
You will need to be really comfortable with animals - we have two dogs and four cats who are part of the family, as well as a small herd of alpacas.
English is our first language, but my partner does speak good French too.
All we ask for from visitors is enthusiasm, willingness to share and honesty!
English, some French
You'll live as part of the family, but you also have your own space - you’ll have your own comfortable bedroom and en-suite shower room - we'd ask you to keep them clean and tidy yourself.
We will make sure you’re well-fed! We have a varied diet but we’re not vegetarian and restricted diets would be difficult to cater for.
We don’t smoke and the farm is non-smoking for safety and health reasons and sorry, we can’t accommodate children or pets.
Mobile phone coverage is variable, but you can use our internet connection while you're here.
This is a calm place with a small wood and a stream running through our land. There are lots of birds here and it’s a rare day that has no birdsong, even in winter. The weather here in central Brittany is generally mild in winter with more rain than snow. Summer is usually very pleasantly warm.
There's a lot to do outdoors in the area, particularly cycling and walking – bike trails and walking routes are well-represented and we also have a bike you could borrow.
The beautiful north Breton coast is about 30 minutes away by road, with its beaches and walking trails and there are water activities at the Lac de Guerlédan, about 20 minutes’ drive from here.
TGV trains run to Saint Brieuc and Rennes from Paris and beyond and there are good bus links between towns in Brittany, so it’s pretty easy to get around.
We live on the edge of a village which has a bar, a bakery, a small grocery store, a creperie and a hotel/restaurant, all within a few minutes’ walk. Our nearest town is about four kilometres away, with a cinema, swimming pool and equestrian centre, as well as a good range of shops.
We live a pretty relaxed life but we ask visitors to respect our lifestyle and to help as part of the family while living in our home.
