  • Descripción


    Clare from Glasgow (Scotland) is a teacher of English as a second language and has French and Italian skills, Steve from Newcastle (England) has worked in IT, and we achieved our dream and bought this house summer 2014. There is a lot of upgrading and gardening maintenance to be done in this very fertile and warm corner of France. We enjoy company and conversation, we love music folk, rock anything really and we have a few instruments around if you are musically inclined. We have all the tools for our jobs, just not enough time or energies for everything.

    We are 20Km from Mt St Michel in Basse Normandie with many beautiful walks/cycle routes in the area. Historic towns such as Avranches, St Malo and Fougeres and the ancient cities of Rennes and Caen are an hour away. Paris is about 3 hours away by train and there are good local train connections. We have a 6 seater car and can pick up volunteers from main train stations or Rennes and Dinard airports. We play music as a hobby and we have instruments including 12 string guitar, mandolin, accordion, fiddle and percussion and keyboards in the house. We also have a wee Ginger tom cat called Walter.
