    [Workaway note: please contact this host in French]


    My name is Marie

    Recently retired, I live on the site of the farm that my son took over recently (goat cheese making, breeding)
    I live on the island of Belle Ile at sea, where live 5000 inhabitants in winter and more than 40 000 tourists in summer.
    The island is accessible by boat 14 km from the mainland, the house is near the village Keroulep 800 m from the beach and the village accessible on foot or by bike.
      The house is big and the garden too!
    With health problems, I have difficulties to maintain all this space and I look for arms for maintenance (renovation from time to time) for the house, the kitchen garden, the whole garden ..
    It can also happen that we come to the farm, according to their needs and our program.

    Whatever the weather, I like being outdoors, always active, I hope we can laugh and have a great time together!



    Je m’appelle Marie

    A la retraite depuis peu, je vis sur le site de la ferme que mon fils a repris récemment (fabrication de fromage de chèvre, élevage)
    .Je vis sur l'ile de Belle ile en mer, ou vivent 5000 habitants l'hiver et plus de 40 000 touristes l'été.
    L'ile est accessible par bateau à 14 km du continent, la maison est près du village de Keroulep à 800 m de la plage et du bourg accessible a pied ou en vélo.
    La maison est grande et le jardin également !
    Avec des problèmes de santé, j'ai des difficultés pour l'entretien de tout cet espace et je recherche des bras pour l'entretien (rénovation de temps à autre) pour la maison, le potager, l'ensemble du jardin ..
    Il peut également arriver que l'on vienne en aide à la ferme, en fonction de leur besoin et de notre programme.

    Quelque soit le temps, j'aime être dehors, toujours active, j'espère que nous pourrons rigoler et passer de très bons moments ensemble !
