    Description

    French, still living as peacefully and as simply as possible out in the beautiful wooded area outside the small town of Pontivy in Brittany.

    It`s a simple life here, with numerous animals, such as goats and chickens, as well as numerous singing birds throughout the day. It makes for quite the relaxed environment. So, if you are really looking to unwind, this might be the right place for you!

    I don`t drink, but I m quite liberal in my lifestyle and am very open to other people`s way of living.

    Currently building a separate (private) tree house for our Workaway volunteers and, though we tend to maintain a fairly loose work schedule, the work that we are doing is mainly focused on the construction of this tree house.

    Additionally, other things we do here on the property include working in our organic garden and feeding the animals.

    But, make no mistake, I fully understand that the Workaway concept is primarily about cultural exchange. This a concept I definitely embrace. Therefore, I will be very happy to learn about you, your language and your culture. You can expect to have the opportunity to sit down here, relax and chat about anything for hours on end!

    If you happen to be skilled at woodworking, this would be a plus; although it is certainly not a requirement. Also, fellow musicians are particularly welcome here!

    You will be housed and fed, as well. (tend to eat primarily organic food.)

    If this sounds interesting to you, please feel free to contact me (Olivier) so that I can see if it would be a good arrangement for both parties. (Feel free to contact me in both French and English.)

    Merci et à bientôt!

    What else ...

    Britany is a Mystic place. The country we live is famous for these neolitic stones fields, tumulus. The ocean is not so far, bus is the common way to move, not very far from a little city. Lots of concerts the week end... we've got a car, so we can come pick U up.
