  • Description


    Hi, we’re a young family of 5 restoring a villa of 1890s in a fisherman village in Brittany. It’s just like a dream coming true for us.
    The house is located just accross the Front sea, in the middle of the village, surrounding by nature, certified Grand Site of France, for the preservation of its environment.
    We’re doing most of the work ourselves (except for heating system and plumbing), and we are looking mainly for minor building and decoration help. Artists are also welcomed as some freso restauration is needed too, murals, painting.

    A little bit about us. We came back from 10 years living in Califiornia few years ago, and fall in love with this area after living in Huge Towns.
    Laurent produces organic food and I am mainly a yoga teacher, with other projects. We’re enjoying at the most what life brings us.

    Hope you enjoyed the descritpion, and please feel free to contact us.

    All the best!

    The house is quite big, qualified as historical monument here with its park. Everybody says that it is really in good condition, but it needs to be refreshed! So it is mainly minor builing and decoration, most on walls to refresh the house and give it back its natural beauty.
