  • Description

    Description

    We are a sociable, dynamic and creative family, myself Anthea and three teenagers Rob (17 years) Jemma and Jacques (13 years).

    We live in an very unconventional yet comfortable house on a large plot of land with 3 dogs , and a cat .

    On the land (1/2 acre) there is a splash pool, vegetable garden, a green house , 2 goats, 2 chickens and a cockerel , which all need daily care as well as taming some parts of the land that has got over grow with brambles.

    With my children beening teenagers and me working full time, 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 doing jobs 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 a chance to practice and exchange languages with english, french.

    My children are learning Spanish at school so would love so help with that if any one knows it. We are a family who are interested generally in learning new languages.

    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 with many lovely walks, bicycle trails, and beaches to the north and west or old towns with daily markets. All of these can be eached within an hours drive.
