    Description

    Hello,
    We are a french family living in the renowned Mayenne's Departement (between Rennes and Nantes people used to say).
    I'm currently doing a workaway in London and found it so fantastic that I have to share it now, at home.

    My 2 brothers and I want to help our father with the garden and to restore the family farm (probably in order to take it over one day ).

    We want to refurbish a building so we would be very pleased to welcome somebody who can help in building, specialy carpentry, making electricity or roofer. But we are totally open to people without such skills as you are found of DIY.
    You could help us in the garden as well.

    The nearest village is 3 km away It's why we will provide you bikes during your stay.

    If you want to learn french, this is a great opportunity since my parents don't speak a word of english.
    If you don't, no worry, I, Adrien will be at home from May to the end of July.

    We would be very pleased to share with us dinners, parties and (if you play football) friendly football turnaments (that take place during the week-ends in May and June).

    We are also near by Brittany and could take you there during the week-ends if you want.

    If you like countryside,learning french and have fun, you should be very happy with us!

    Adrien

    You will learn about the french culture (we love cooking, playing cards and drinking wine).
    If you want, we could help you learning french.
    I speak english and a bit german and I'd love hosting english and/or german speaking people.
    For sure, we will introduce you to a lot of our friends (our house is very lively and is very often used to make parties).

    Most of the time, we will work with you.
    In the garden, the work will be mostly plantation.
    For the building, we'd like to renovate the roof, the second floor, making the electricity and the plumbery.
    So it will be quite physical works but we like making many deserved breaks =)
