We are looking for dedicated enthusiastic workawayers to help on our tiny cottage / farm in the heart of Brittany Brennilis. We are situated in the Armorica Regional Natural Park of Brittany there are lots of hikes and outdoor activities to pass the time here on your days off.
It is our future goal to be as green as possible, we are slowly progressing towards that point and learning as we go.
We love to spend our nights here enjoying good food, wine and music around our dinner table. Guests are well looked after and the local community is charming and friendly
Ideally we are looking for a couple to help us but we need lots of help so either way so please apply as you see fit
We are offering free board, free breakfast and free tea / coffee throughout the day. For dinner we like to cook communally, a small contribution towards dinner is appreciated, help in the kitchen is always required especially with dinner so be prepared to muck in and make something tasty!! Volunteers will be required to make their own food on their days off
The closest train stations to us are Morlaix & Carhaix, prices to and from Morlaix are usually cheaper
Transport - Once or twice a week we do a food shop in Morlaix, we can arrange transport to onward destinations and we can collect or drop you off at the train station
We are animal lovers here and have 2 dogs, 1 cat and a few chickens
Our family are all devout travellers and have hitch hiked, backpacked and volunteered all across the globe!! We are very accommodating fun loving people and we welcome all guests with open arms
If you have any questions please feel free to contact us
