  • Description

    Description

    We were mad enough to have moved, 10 years ago, to a history-packed "chateau" in 15 acres of parkland with ancient oaks and small fishing lakes. The chapel is 16th century the stone staircase is 14th! Ceilings are 4m high - the main wing is 19th c and comfortable! Billiard room included....We work as translators from home here and in London We would love you all to come to help in our renovation building projects and in the garden ( ivy off walls, mowing, fishing, establishing a veg garden and in the house painting and cleaning!). 5km from Chateaubriant and 45 km from Rennes. Can teach you French or English and feed and lodge you.
