  • Description


    Recently retired, we bought this house in a completly new region for us: Bretagne.
    Both of us were teachers. I was previuosly a midwife, and worked with computers too.
    I am 65 years old, and my wife ... never say how old a lady is.
    I am french (as you can guess reading my english), my wife is english (she is the one who speaks english fluently).
    As the house is rather isolated, we will enjoy some company.
    And some help in the general maintenance will be much appreciated.
    My ancestors left Bretagne nearly 100 years ago. It is kind of a "retour aux sources" for me.
    The project is to rent the second house as a gite, probably next year.
    Always in order to meet people and exchange experiences.
    And of course workawayers would be most welcome.

    I am certainly not the best cook, but I usually succeed in getting friends and family fed. Would also be interested in new receipes. So if guests want to, I would taste with great pleasure.
