Hi, Mark and I are renovating a farm house here in beautiful Brittany. We left the rat race and moved here 3 years ago. I used to be a uni lecturer (Social Policy) and Mark was self employed.) We have a variety of animals, and grow our own food. We no longer have the opportunity to travel because of our small holding commitments so opening our home to Workaways is the next best thing. The only thing better than living in our lovely location is giving other people the opportunity to share the experience.
There are many outdoor pursuits available in our area, from horse riding to canoeing. There are lakes, forests, trails and neolithic sites right on our doorstep and a variety of beaches within 40 minutes of the house. Bikes will be made available. We like to nip down to the beach on a fine day, that's the beauty of living in Central Brittany, you can choose the best coast according to the weather forecast.
Although our house still needs a lot of work, bedrooms, the bathroom and toilet are all renovated and you will have a comfortable bed, modern facilities, good food and a warm welcome any time of the year.
DIY and building projects
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We just need an extra pair of hands to help out around the place. There is always gardening from day to day weeding etc. to landscaping. We also need help with general labouring on the renovation, no specific skills needed. However, if you have specific skills and like the look of our place, please get in touch, we may need your experience and expertise. If French is your first language, we could really do with some tuition.
The house is located in a tranquil rural setting 3.5 k from the town. You will have a comfortable bedroom, and share a bathroom. The rest of the house is in the process of being renovated but functional.
We have dogs living in the house and they are part of our family. The goats and pig are too, but they live outside.
