The Experience

We are going through a most unusual time in our lives and so I am offering my help to stranded travelers! Not many tasks to do but enjoy good healthy food and walks in the surrounding forest. English language practice also available! I speak french fluently but please do not come here if you want to learn it. Usually, there may be events to help at, many local events ask for volunteers and I enjoy helping others!

That was my first worldpacker experience and it couldn't have been more amazing. David is great and treated me with a lot of respect, I learned a lot from him!

The work is rewarding, the food is just wonderful (David is a super chef!), the landscape is breathtaking, impossible not to feel at peace during the walks. He took me to see Brittany and it was fantastic. I met some of his friends, incredible people, who were always very patient with my poor French.

Certainly one of the best experiences of my life, a piece of my heart will stay here. Thank you so much for everything, David!!

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.

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.
Cheers!

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.
