Description
I live in a small detached cottage in Glomel situated in the Côtes-d'Armor department of Brittany in northwestern France. Surrounded by woodlands, with a large lake, the Curong Dam and within easy walking distance of the Nantes-Brest canal there is plenty of opportunity for walking, hiking, cycling and fishing. Not far from Rostrenen with its weekly market every Tuesday and Carhaix Plouger if you fancy a trip to shop in a larger town the area has plenty to offer in the day time. There isn't a nightlife to speak of so be prepared for evenings spent at home.

I took early retirement last year and came to Brittany to explore and learn the language most of the major work on the house is done but it's in need of decorating and as I have no DIY skills I'm really looking for someone to share the basic stuff like painting, wallpapering and generally making the place feel homely, I have a garden which has been cleared but I need some help here as well with levelling it out and putting in some raised beds. I'm not a stickler for hours worked rather it's a case of getting a job done whilst exploring the area and having some downtime to relax, chat and share experiences, if you speak French or want to improve your English that's a plus but not a necessity. I love to cook, travel and enjoy meeting new people. I have 4 cats which you probably won't see much of and a 17 month old Beauceron called Jaques who although fairly well trained lives for being taken for long walks through the woods. The area is rural and if your not the outdoor type there isn't a great deal to do but I have excellent Internet coverage, English TV and a lot of walls that need painting.

Update: I'm afraid this site will not allow me to download pics it says they are all to large but I'm happy to email as many photos as you'd like on request.
