  • Description


    A little peace of heaven, in Bretagne, on the countryside and close to the sea : this is our home called the Malaunay ! We are Christine & Philippe, a funny and happy couple moving back from Quebec, Canada to our home in Bretagne. We are both teachers.
    As you will see on the pictures we have a huge garden and a typical ''Longère'' House.
    What do we need ?
    Nice people to help us in our Eco project : strong arms to help in the garden and with small construction work in the house, nice people to garden with, plant flowers and salads.
    What is included :
    Sharing nice meals, crepes, singing around the camp fire, play ping pong or volley-ball outside.
    We have the goal of making our place a little ecological and sustainable heaven. Anyone with competences, knowledge, or manual habilities or with a creative mind are welcome to help !
    The long term plan would be to have some sheep, a donkey, some chickens. We want to make a big permaculture garden and a bird sanctuary.
