  • Description


    My origins are both English and Danish, and I have been living in France for just over 30 years now. I have travelled quite a lot and lived in Greece for a while.
    I love music and nature and have a very British sense of humour (perhaps because I am British :)!
    I love going on walks, being outdoors, and feel a great sense of connection with nature and animals. I love meeting new people, and I enjoy meaningful conversations.
    The central piece to my living room is my yoga mat! I like to sing (mostly jazz currently), to do theatre, and I enjoy playing piano as a beginner and just for fun.
    I like to eat healthily.
    I am a free spirit and need creativity in my daily routine which can get in the way of me organising my living space.
    I'm looking for somebody methodical and organised to help take away some of the overwhelm still associated with sorting through and shifting boxes- something I need to do having accumulated a lot of things I may no longer need or want.
    My friends find me witty and original. I would say that I'm quite reserved but love to have fun.
    I don't have family nearby but have started making friends here in Brest.
    After a few very difficult years where my health suffered a lot, I am gradually working on moving on with my life, getting healthy and exploring new avenues of creative expression.
    Encouragement, assistance and perhaps collaboration on projects will provide me with the continued gentle support I need.
    Ideally, you are light-hearted, good-natured, optimistic and supportive, as well as being someone discrete and independent.
    I work daily on leading a more authentic life and it would be nice to connect with someone like-minded.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    You can practice your French or English or both while you are staying with me.
    I am a translator and an English teacher; I have also done a lot of voice and body work and will be happy to share what I’ve learned.
    My friends often tell me I have creative ideas around projects and people, so if there is anything you want to brainstorm on, I will be happy to help.

  • Aide


    My project is to move from a larger space to a smaller space therefore downsizing in the process.
    The idea is to help me go through my things and divide them into different categories; donations, things to sell, recycle or to keep.
    I have a flexible work schedule, so it will be necessary to adapt to it, but if you have a schedule request, please let me know and we will work something out. Because I work during the week, we will probably get most things done on weekends.
    I would also like you to prepare vegetarian dinners for us, but we can also sometimes cook together. I may ask you to do grocery shopping from time to time.

    If you are a qualified massage therapist or life coach, I would also be interested in these skills.

  • Hébergement


    I live in a lovely top floor apartment in the centre of Brest with a lot of natural light and a nice view over the port. It also has wooden floors and high ceilings.
    The apartment is in a quiet neighbourhood right in the city centre.
    You will have your own spacious room with a desk and TV. The large windows opens onto a small balcony with a view of the sea.
    We will share the kitchen and the bathroom. We may also share the living room area when I don’t use it as a home office or exercise space that I need.

    Autres infos...

    The city of Brest and the coast are very accessible. Having your own car is preferable if you want to explore the surrounding area.
    The Northern Finistère region has a beautiful rocky coastline, long sandy beaches and historical sites to discover. There are lots of places to practice watersports, islands to visit and the aquarium ‘Oceanopolis Adventure Park’ is very popular.
    It can be very rainy in Brest but when the sun comes out, you know you're in a great place to live.
    There are buses, a tram, and a train station within walking distance of our flat. Brest airport is 12km away from the town centre. You can also rent bikes in the city centre.
    Brest is a port city and, on the surface, not necessarily an attractive town, but when you get to know the city you may fall in love with it. It has a lot of character: cosy tea shops, a great bookshop, great and affordable restaurants and a funky arts and cultural center called 'Les Capucins' amongst other things. There are currently a lot of eco-city projects here, so you may also appreciate meeting eco- friendly and creative locals.
