  • Description


    Hello my name is Christopher and I am in my early 70’s. I have had a house in Brittany since 99, with a large garden and have recently added a vegetable patch. I do have an associate that helps me with certain task but there is just too much to do!!! especially in the garden and the property has ongoing works on pace. We do have a cat for anybody that needs to know about allergies.

    I am located in a quite rural area of France in the commune of Plouigneau which is 15 mins away from Morlaix in Brittany. so if it is peace and quite you are looking for that could be good for you (the odd tractor aside). There is a small village nearby that offers all the necessary amenities as well as a larger town, and transport can be provided at certain times.

    Just looking for some help with the garden and a few home improvements, some of which might be on the roof, scaffolding is in place.
