Maison Kerr

As a traveler you will enjoy the nature all around this quiet village. I make my own bread and cook everything from fresh at all times. This year I do not have a big garden of my own but I share my neighbors garden and help him as he is handicapped. My plans to have my own garden is taking much longer than expected so there is a lot less work at the moment. Indeed I do not need much help at the moment so this gives an opportunity for someone to come here for cooking and language practice, as I speak English and French. Please do not come here to learn French, you will be very disappointed! There are always some small improvement projects and your input and inspiration is very welcome. The village does not have public transport so it is not suitable for people wanting to explore by themselves. I offer a home-stay ideal for people who want to immerse themselves in Breton life and disconnect from social media. If you are looking for a place where you work fixed hours please do not ask to come! This position will only suit people who are curious, enjoy food, will want to join in with local events, and does not have to spend all night on the phone to friends! People who want to enjoy what Brittany offers are very welcome and I will happily be your guide and take you to music and other events. I will be very happy to learn Spanish and practice yoga if you can guide me. If you do not enjoy food please do not ask to come...

I am an English person settled in France for 17 years. I try to grow as much of my own food as I can and make jams and preserves. I collect wild mushrooms and other produce that nature provides us with. Vegetarians are very welcome, I do eat some meat and fish but very little red meat; we eat all meals together and I adapt to your diet 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 opportunity 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!

Merci de m'avoir appris à faire de la marmelade d'orange, c'est le meilleur que j'aie jamais goûté. de nombreux succès et jusqu'à la prochaine fois

Minha estádia com David, foi ótima. Além de cozinhar muito bem, me levou em muitos lugares, festivais de música, praias, pontos turisticos e fomos caçar cogumelos na floresta, uma experiência muito diferente e divertida. Pude praticar meu inglês, tinha meu próprio quarto, o trabalho não tinha um horário fixo, pois as vezes dependiamos de como o tempo estava. Ia ficar 2 semanas e acabei ficando 1 mês, e quando deixei Melrand, me deu carona até outra cidade ainda. Super recomendo, principalmente se você é uma mulher que viaja sozinha como eu.

Gran anfitrion, buen cocinero y buen conversador, le ayude en algunas tareas dentro de la casa.. La estadía allí me permitió mejorar mi inglés, además de conocer nuevos lugares y culturas.. Un lugar muy tranquilo para caminar y descansar al 100%

David will do everything to make you feel good, but the farm is very isolated, there is nothing to do around and it will be only you and him. I do not recommend it for girls travellig alone.

Having had nearly 70 single girls here (using another hosting site - Workaway) this is the first time I have been told it is not suitable!! I offer a safe and friendly enviroment which is mostly very well appreciated. So I guess it depends on each person.


Perfect for you if you're looking for
