  • Description


    I live in a huge house in Hénanbihen it's nearby Lamballe Armor Brittany, France

    I live 3 hours from Paris and 15 minutes from beautiful beaches like Sables-d'or-les-pins (Google it)

    My house is in the middle of a big garden of 7 hectares full of big trees.

    I have 2 dogs, a goat, and chickens.

    I have 6 children and 13 grandchildren who visit during the year. They don't live with me.

    There are beautiful places to visit where I live: Saint-Malo, Mont Saint Michel, and lovely beaches all along the coast.

    I also have a big swimming pool that people can use if they want and a great outdoor space for running/doing exercise

    I also have bikes and a car that Workawayers can use to go nearby.

    Last but not least, I'm very easy-going and kind :)

  • Help


    Living alone I am happy to welcome people who can help in the garden and/or in the house. Basically, the workawayer can decide what he/she would prefer to do.

    I am happy to have them help inside or outside the house.

    I would appreciate Workawayers helping around 5 hours/day from Monday - Friday... but they can choose when they want to work.

    Knowing how to use a chainsaw and cutting wood can be helpful but cooking and cleaning are much appreciated.

  • Accommodation



    We can accommodate a total of 4 workawayers (maximum)

    The workawayers have a room they will share (max 2 people per room)

    They will also share the bathroom.

    Couples have their own room.

    Everyone has access to the common spaces (kitchen, living room, outside spaces, etc)


    Breakfast and lunch are included.


    To get to my house from Paris, for example, people can get train tickets at SNCF to Lamballe Armor.
    There are public transports but workawayers can use my bike and car to go to places nearby.

    I also pick up workawayers in Lamballe Armor and drop them off when they arrive and conclude their experience.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    During their time off workawayers can enjoy Brittany, can catch a train to Paris or Rennes, or just enjoy the garden and the pool.

    I work for a University so I spend quite a lot of time working from my room. When I travel workawayerswill be in charge of my house and my animals.
