    We are a family of 5
    3 children 18, 25and 27.We live in Brittany and have 9 hectares which supports sheep, horses, poultry a cow, pig and have numerous cats, dogs and ferrets.

    We have lived here since 2005 and have renovated our house from a ruin.

    We have a 3 bedroom bungalow for accommodation and meals will be supplied in the main house .We are looking for people who have an empathy towards animals as ours are very special to us.

    On the property are 3.carp lakes 2 duck ponds and wallow for the pigs

    The area we live in is 1 km from Medreac village, 8 km to the nearest big town, and 35,minutes by car from the capital Rennes
    Ideally we are looking for people who are prepared to muck in ,the jobs will be varied some will be interesting others not so but are necessary.
    You must be prepared to muck in and will be expected to help at meal times.
    We try and take you out visiting local sites if you arrive with no transport.
    We don't work as a Monday to Friday workplace every day varies and can depend on the weather!
    As we are an English family our main language spoken is English but the children speak French and we have many French visitors who are quite happy to let you practice French with them.
