  • Description


    Hello all. Dan and I have moved to France for a better way of life; where we want to grow some fruit and veggies, have hens and make things! The garden and out buildings here are large and could do with some loving. It is a kept garden though as we have a sit on mower, strimmer, hedge cutter etc, (so nothing like cutting down 12 ft hedges or 5ft brambles etc) but it does needs planting ~ flowers and bushes etc. We would love to dig a new pond and migrate the frogs we have in one area to the new pond area). We have out buildings that require attention - stairs building, wall pointing, painting and roof maintenance etc. Its our little slice of paradise and we love it but would welcome help to personalise it and to be creative and unique!

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    We are English and so could help enhance your English language, although we really would like to learn more French. Re the garden, we could learn together if that interests you - from minor to major garden projects.
    Collecting fresh eggs everyday from the hens is a fab experience if never had and if you wish to practice cooking skills then that would be encouraged but not a must if not keen!
    You may even have the opportunity to drive a digger!

    Autres infos...

    Vannes is just 30 mins away by car. A great seaside town with lots of history, night life and shopping.
    We have a little local tabac, 10 mins by car but can cycle there if prefer to meet some locals and have a coffee or beer. We are surrounded by countryside and so is ideal place to switch off and read, walk, paint etc. The closest towns are 15/20 mins by car. (Locmine and Pontivy)
    A friend takes pottery classes (less than 10 mins away) if you'd like to make some thing /paint something as a keep sake?
