  • Description

    Description

    Athelstan (48), Sylvie (43), Mathias (13), Louis (11) and Marceau (7) would be happy to welcome you in their house located in the countryside near Quimper in Britanny (South Finistère). We are working for Doctors Without Borders (Médecins Sans Frontières) and between two missions, we are spending time in our house that we gradually renovate. Currently, Athelstan is renovating a building that is part of our compound, and would enjoy some help to partially redo the wooden framework of the house and thereafter the slate roof. We are also thinking of converting a part of the garage into a small concert/reception/cinema hall, as well as turning the current attic into a new bedroom. We also own a house in Plouhinec, on the seafront, were there are also small renovation works to do and where we could also accommodate some volunteers.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    We are working for Doctors without Borders (Médecins Sans Frontières), so we are regularly travelling and living abroad (Congo, Afghanistan, Malawi, Burkina Faso, Laos, Georgia and others...), and we would be happy to continue sharing experiences and having a cultural exchange when we are back in France between two missions.

    Living with our family can also be a good experience for people who want to practice french language.

    Athelstan has a degree in carpentry and woodworking, as well as good skills in electricity, plumbing, mechanics, etc... He is happy to share his knowledge but of course also to learn more from visitors.

    We have three workshops at home : one for painting, one for mechanics and one for woodwork, so if the visitors are interested in one of those activities, it's a very good opportunity for exchange.

  • Hébergement

    Hébergement

    Our house is located in the middle of a small town, in the countryside, near Quimper. On the ground floor we have three workshops (painting, mechanics and woodwork), as well as a little bar and a pool table. On the first floor (150m2), we have the living room, the kitchen and one bathroom. On the second floor (150m2), we have three rooms, a large corridor with 4 beds, and a bathroom. We can make one of our rooms available to accommodate our visitors. The bathroom will have to be shared.

    For the food, visitors can either use the kitchen and the supplies we will buy to make their own food, or they can share the family meals.
