Maison Kerr

As a traveler you will enjoy the nature all around this quiet village. The gardening produces fresh food all year which we/ I then cook, meals that are generally enjoyed! I make my own bread and cook everything from fresh at all times. By helping in the daily duties in the garden or kitchen you will have the opportunity to learn from me and hopefully I will learn from you. Language practice is also on offer as I speak English and French. There are always some small improvement projects and your input and inspiration is very welcome. I am running a small Yoga retreat, offering long weekends in my 3 rental rooms. If you can give yoga lessons there will be opportunities, or you will be able to take part in the lessons offered..... I am running these weekends with someone who will be here only when there are customers so it will be our job to make sure everything is ready for the next guests. We intend to do 2 weekends a month to start the business.

I am an english person setted in France for 15 years. I try to grow as much of my own food as I can and make jams and preserverses. I collect wild mushrooms and other produce that nature provides us with. Vegetarians are very welcome, we eat all meals together with the main meal being in the evening. You have a double room to yourself and share a bathroom with me. Sheets and towels are provided. I have no staff, by using volunteer help it is easier to be more self sufficient and gives the oppotunity for travelers to enjoy this rural corner of France. I only need one person at a time and like people to stay a minimum of 2 weeks, but longer is better!

I loved my staying at Maison Kerr.
David is a great man, he showed me many aspects of country life in Brittany, it was really fulfilling and made me able to leave with a better knowledge of Breton culture.
I still miss his wonderful garden and his amazing recipes, he is literally both an artist of the garden and of kitchen! :)
Among the planned activities, I also had the opportunity to do mushroom hunting and to visit many interesting places around the area.
I really suggest to take a visit to Maison Kerr and to Melrand, in particular to people who likes nature and simple life.

I had an awesome time with David, the job was nice and it was really rewarding to see the difference we made at the end of each day.
Melrand is an amazing little town, perfect if you want to experience nature and the beauty of the french country side, David was kind enough to take me around Brittany and I could see a bit more of the region and get to know some history about those places.
Beside all that, the house was very nice, and the bedroom/bed very comfortable. David is the best cook ever, and I could even learn how to make some things from him. 😊
Thanks for everything.
