We are a couple (no longer quite in our forties) who ran a B&B for 3 years in Josselin with occasional help from Workawayers. We're now near the lovely South Brittany coast, where I mainly teach English, in a house & garden that needs a little updating & TLC...
We've been in France since 2013 and have 2 pampered cats, Micky & Polly, brother & sister.
S’occuper des animaux
We speak French & English, so you can practise speaking to us in either (I also speak a bit of italian). We are keen on foraging along the coasts, tides & weather permtting, plus there is lots to see & do in our area.
Ce projet peut impliquer des enfants. Pour en savoir plus, consultez nos directives et conseils ici.
*At the moment we have no spare room, due to some renovations, I will update our profile when we know we can host Workawayers again*
The help we require will vary depending on time of year, but probably not for more than 1 week at a time.
For example, in spring or autumn we'll need some help in the garden, a little decorating if weather not so good, and maybe house/pet sitting at certain times,
We need to trim back a hedge,and are thinking of putting in a little pond so not just weeding !
Cold, wet winter weather may limit the projects to work on outdoors, so no help required in deepest winter... you would need some clothes/footwear suitable for working outside in not entirely dry conditions !
Our 2 cats are easy, they like being fed, petted & taken for walks around the garden, so animal care is minimal.
We welcome guests who also want to improve their French or English.
We have 1 double bedroom with access to self catering facilities, that would best suit a couple who like a bit of independence. The bathroom is not en-suite but right next to the bedroom, so as near as...
For Workawayers with camper vans, there is off-road parking in our drive, and you could of course use our kitchen/bathroom facilities.
No smoking in the house and sorry, but no pets, as ours are not good at sharing !
We are based in a little hamlet 8km from the coast. 3km from town of Muzillac.
Less than 20mins from the Gulf of Moribihan, Vannes, & La Roche Bernard worth visiting, as is Rochefort en Terre - a Beau Village de France.
We're 15 mins from Questembert station but recommend Workaways come with a car to be able to explore the coast & surrounding area easily. Or ask us about local car hire.
Muzillac , 2 mins drive or a 1/2hr walk away, has shops, a cinema, plus bars & restaurants.
On the way there is a large lake & nature reserve & Branfere wildlife park is only another 10 mins drive away.
