We are a sociable, dynamic and creative family, myself Anthea and three teenagers Rob (16 years) Jemma and Jacques (12 years). We live in an very unconventional yet comfortable house on two acres of land with 3 dogs , 2 cats, and 2 goats.
With my children beening teenagers and me running kennels and a cattery as well as other jobs, it would be great to have some daily help with the children keeping them off the computer games as much as possible and to help look after the land, the animals and around the house.
In our sparetime we like to bicycle ride, explore different parts of the region, go swimming, play games (indoor and outdoor) , and enjoy walks.
There is always chance to practice and exchange languages with english, french.
We are a sociable, dynamic and creative family who live life to the full and enjoy having fun and a
meeting new people and learning new skills.
It is a very beautiful part of Brittany and from lovely walks, bicycle trails, beaches to the north and west or old towns with daily markets are not very far away.
