  • Description


    My name is Jacqueline, I live in a large renovated house on a 2 hectares plot of land in a beautiful countryside, quiet, near the "Canal from Nantes to Brest". About an hour's drive from NANTES, RENNES and VANNES, 25 kms from PONTCHÂTEAU and REDON.

    The garden is large, and I would need help for maintening it.

    I enjoy meeting people, entertaining friends, talking, sharing moments of work, cooking, I eat organic and rather vegetarian but with tolerance for other foods.I like to go for walks and explore the region. I also like to travel.

    During your staying, you can have your own bedroom; I can also accommodate a couple, and share the common living rooms. There is also a cat in the house, but it is not going into the bedrooms. I work as a sophro therapist next to home. And I will also participate with you in the gardening.

    I love nature, listening to music, singing, cinema, yoga, taiji quan, sophrology, walks in the countryside, hiking, ocean sidewalks.
    I speak a little English and I would like to speak it more often and better.

  • Help


    I need help in the ecological maintenance of the wooded garden: weeding, cleaning, pruning, collecting small wood, etc. Welcome to those who already have knowledge in this field and who have some autonomy in the organization of their tasks and their day. Remember to bring seasonal (and rainy) clothes and shoes to help in the garden. I ask for a participation in the common household (cleaning the house) and in the preparation of meals. No drugs or alcohol.
