  • Description


    Hello ! We are Valentine and Wilfried and we've just bought a Manor, located in the heart of Britanny, in the Côtes d'Armor (22) department. This big family house is dated from 15th, 16th and 19th century and is full of history, little secrets and hidden corners. This used to be the house of Valentine's mother for 17 years and it's now ours.
    We are welcoming all good willing people coming with their energy and will to learn building and renovation techniques.
    The huge garden park is also to revive and redesign with new trees, flowers, plants and spaces to create.
    Our goal is to revive this beautiful place !

    In our home, you can be sure to learn every single position of the rebuilding profession - from carpenting, to bricklaying... It will be with great pleasure and huge thank you that we will welcome you.

    Who we are ? We love arts, culture, music, meeting new people, we love our house and our garden.
    We offer board and lodging and camping is also possible in the garden.
    We are waiting for you
    Valentine & Wilfried

    Edit : the house is full now for the end of august but we will need any help (girls and boys) from september onward !!

    Valentine is fluent in english and the rest of the family is french speeking and is always happy to communicate and learn new cultures. We leave nearby a wonderful old village called Moncontour de Bretagne, which has earned the tittle of most beautiful village in France. We would be delighted to show you the area. If you love walking, you have direct walking trails outside the manor.
    Sea is only at 20 min driving and we are located directly in the center of brittany, with a kind of "mountain spirit and air" as we are closed to the mount of Bel Air at the end of the Mont d'Arrées small-mountain chain.
    We also have a very beautiful lake nearby, and so many beautiful places to show you that we can't wait for your coming :)
