    Help needed to renovate a beautiful 400 year old thatched house which will become our forever home.

    DROP US A LINE - WE'RE ACCEPTING SINGLES, COUPLES...EVEN GROUPS ! We move into the thatched long house end of May 2020, so all hands on deck, and help moving/packing would be a bonus.

    We are particularly interested in anyone with an interest in landscaping, heating and plumbing engineer, labouring, joiner, general building skills - in fact anyone with trade experience, or anyone willing to wield a shovel and learn from other more experienced workawayers !

    Anyone who can plumb in a simple thermo-syphon wetback log burner / cylinder / 1 heat leak radiator out there?

    We also want to re-design the gardens entirely. A 3 ton excavator is on site to do the hard work, and a dumper. We want to create different areas of interest, a patio using period granite , a pergola, raised herb beds, lots of architectural planting to create Mediterranean areas, a typical English cottage garden area, a Japanese zen area etc. I'm sure you get the idea.

    We live in the beautiful countryside of southern Brittany. We're both very well travelled, probably 100+ countries between us and lived in UK, France, Hong Kong and Singapore.

    Immerse yourself in total peace and tranquility in beautiful surroundings. The food is good and we can cater for vegetarians with no problem. Comfortable accommodation provided with en-suite bathroom.

    We have a number of projects including carpentry, general garden maintenance, hard landscaping, natural stone walling - any experience with stonework would be amazing but not essential. We have serious power tools including a 3 ton excavator, so you won't be expected to do it all with a shovel!

    We need people for a minimum of 2 weeks but could host for 1-2months for anyone interested with the right skills. For anyone with a camper van we can provide electrical hookup. Please get in touch as soon as possible !

    This part of France is beautiful and there is lots of opportunity for cycling and outdoor activities. The coast is approx 45kms and there is plenty to explore on the Gulf of Morbihan.

    If you do not have transport we are happy to pick you up within a 50km radius of Melrand 56310

    We are located in the Blavet Valley which is a very beautiful area with lots of cycle paths and walks. The historic towns of Vannes and Josselin are an easy drive and the coast is approximately 45 minutes. There are lovely beaches and we are not too far from the Gulf of Morbihan.
    We have a very large garden and there is the opportunity to help with cutting wood and doing woodland management. We also have cats and a friendly Irish Wolfhound so essential for you to like animals.
