    Hi ! Most of the time you will be working alongside me, I have experience with foreign people. If you want to learn or improve your French it is definitely the place to be!

    The house is located less than half an hour from the sea, in Auray, near Vannes, in Brittany. Every experience in renovating or various works would be welcome. Yet, only good will is necessary. I am ready to pass on my knowledge.

    I plan to set up a kitchen, some parquet and other types of work. A little train called "Tire-Bouchon" can very easily take you to the sea. It is only 3 minutes away from the house. Besides, Auray is a lovely city where life is good.

    We had a farm as well as the habit of receiving workawayers, but we just left it. And now we are off to new adventures.

    It will be a pleasure to share our daily life as well as the French language with you and our pretty area. If you want to make progress concerning your language skills, we are happy to help by starting to correct your mistakes. Of course the choice is yours.


    Salut ! La maison se situe à moins d'une demi-heure de la mer, sur la ville d' Auray, proche de Vannes , en Bretagne. Toute expérience en rénovation ou en travaux divers sera appréciée. Mais seule la bonne volonté est nécessaire. Je suis prêt à vous apprendre ! Au programme : montage d'une cuisine, parquet, et autres bricolages.

    Un petit train, appelé "Tire-Bouchon" permet de se rendre à la mer très facilement. Départ à 3 mn à pied de la maison. Et Auray est une très jolie ville, où il fait bon vivre.

    Nous avions une ferme, et l'habitude de recevoir des workawayers, mais nous venons de la quitter.
    En route pour de nouvelles aventures !

    Et c'est avec plaisir que nous partagerons notre vie quotidienne, et la langue française, et notre jolie région. Si vous souhaitez progresser, c'est facile. et nous pouvons corriger vos fautes de français si vous le souhaitez.
