We are renovating an old farm complex near the beach on the Baye de Douarnenez, Bretagne. We have fully renovated the main house and guest house, but have many more projects on the remaining buildings and surrounding yards. We are especially keen to improve the garden areas - removing blackberries, installing watering systems. On the buildings, assistance with repointing the stone walls with lime mortar, building natural stone wall planters, plenty of clean up and rubbish removal. So the work offered can vary to fit your skills!
Our property is in a small village 300m from the beach, 5km from the nearest shops, 10km from Douarnenez and 20km from Quimper. There are excellent walking trails around. Historic Locronan is just 5km away.
We are an Australian and German couple and trying to learn French! Our daily language is English. We think we are easy going, keep a non smoking environment and our diet is Vegetarian/Pescatarian.
