    Description

    We were mad enough to have moved 7 years ago to a history-packed "chateau" in 15 acres of parkland with ancient oaks and small fishing lakes. The chapel is 16th century the stone staircase is 14th! Ceilings are 4m high - the main wing is 19th c and comfortable! Billiard room included....We work as translators from home here and in London and our resident friend and partner in crime, Ivan, is a Ukrainian architect . We would love you all to come to help in our renovation building projects and in the garden ( ivy off walls. Bonfires, mowing, fishing, establishing a veg garden and in the house painting and cleaning!). 5km from Chateaubriant and 45 km from Rennes. Can teach you French or English and feed and lodge you.
