We (Phil and Helen) have lived on our 6 hectare permaculture smallholding in a very quiet village in the middle of Brittany for the last 25 years.
We were self sufficient for a large part of the time whilst seeing our family grow up and even becoming grandparents recently.Helen also runs a local cafe,shop,bar.
At the farm we still have chickens, sheep, a dog, cats and now and then a pig for the freezer.
Part of our land is a forest garden alongside a large polytunnel, whilst the rest is wetland, there is also a huge oak tree on the property

Learning is a journey into the unknown!

We will always try our best to let people work on the projects that interest them the most-
either at the smallholding or the renovation in the farmhouse or a mixture of the two.

At the smallholding we are currently :
Chopping firewood
Collecting mulch
Making compost
Planting trees
Brushcutting
Clearing streams.

We are also renovating our farmhouse and recycling various dis... more inside

We are a Dutch/French vegetarian couple with 2 horses, 4 dogs, and two chickens. We speak French, Dutch, English, German and Italian.
We need some help in May/June 2020 for at least two weeks on the land, in the wood, in the garden, in our big house (some painting) and with the animals. The person who wants to live an experience with us has to love animals because for us they are like our family !
There is already a person working for us to do the house cleaning. You work one day and one day off or we can discuss about it. No work on Sunday. We offer breakfast and dinner.
You will have your own bedroom and bathroom.
We live in the center of the beautiful Côtes d'Armor 35 minutes from the Ocean. The Guerlédan lake is not far from here, where there are nautical activities. In the area there are also many possibilities for horse riding, bike riding and hiking.
You need a car or at least a driving licence. There are also bikes at your disposition.
Hope to hear from you soon !

Bonjour!

Living in maritime Brittany, we are the French guardians of a 3 hectares (nearly 8 acres) piece of land on the edge of a forest, 6 kilometers from the sea and the gorgeous beaches of the north coast. It is next to a small village called Lanvellec.

Our land is a beautiful, Celtic green place surrounded by woodland, including two meadows, big granite boulders, a small lake with a place to make night fires, a stream and a fairy swamp, a big mandala-shaped vegetable garden, 3 Yurts, hand-made chalets used as working studios, and plenty of nice and quiet spots for contemplation or artistic expression, or whatever joyful and ecological activities you would enjoy!

For the past 16 years, our on-going project has been to create a retreat/garden centre for sustaining inner, spiritual resources and creativity, and the project is unfolding nicely, with the help and inspiration of so many excellent visitors over the years.

This summer again, we`ll have a number of differen... more inside

I run an organic orchard (apple, walnut, hazelnut, chestnut, pears, ...) close to Lannion and 15 min from the sea cost. I'm also a beekeeper (around 30 hives with local black bees).
I live with Florence, who is an organic cheese maker, Gwendal, our nearly 4 years old little boy, and Emma, a 1 year old little girl.
We also have an orchard, a vegetable garden, some chicken, and cats at home to look after.

I've been helper around the world in 2011! It was a great experience and I have learned a lot, so now it's our turn to host.
We are non smoker.

You will be hosted in our friend room, at home.
You can use some bikes if you want to ride around and there are great walks around the place.

There is a lot to do here, depending on the seasons : building, beekeeping, cutting fire wood, planting, taking care about trees, gardening, milking cows, taking care of the chicken, cooking, taking care of children (especially during the summer)...
