Hello, we are Gerard and Charlotte, a French couple in our 50's running a horse farm in the heart of Brittany. We have 3 daughters. One still lives at home and ride the horses at a high level of competition. We have 2 very kind dogs and 3 cats. We have about 10 horses but the number varies all the time.

The farm is on a top of a hill surrounded by forest with a river down the property. It is very peaceful and made for nature lovers here. We have a nice two bedrooms wooden house for you to stay. We would be happy to share our meals with you in our stone house (close to the wooden house) where we live. The house is made with stones from the 16th century and Charlotte has finished the last renovation a couple of years ago. She also freshly build the wooden house and only the terrace is missing. If you are interested, she can teach you about modern and traditionnal renovation.

We don't speak English fluently but we'll do our best to communicate with you and teach you everything w... more inside

Looking for long-term arrangement, starting this Spring. English couple (mid 40s) with a bilingual 7 yr old son. Our smallholding is in Brittany, just south of Mont St Michel and only 35 mins from St Malo ferry port. Its an old farm - we have pigs, sheep, poultry and rabbits. All of our animals are kept for food for our own consumption and we grow a lot of our own veg - with a large stone raised bed garden in progress to complete our veggie requirements!

We need help around the land mostly - upkeeping fencing, fighting back the brambles, and planting trees and maintenance of the woods, coppicing etc.

We are also renovating various parts of the property using traditional and eco-friendly building techniques and will always need a hand with that. One of us is an experienced stonemason, specialising in restoration of old buildings (churches, manors etc) using traditional materials - he can teach you all you need to know about stone and its uses (building, carving) and also ... more inside
