The Experience

I need help with all aspects of gardening, mostly fruit and vegetables. I would like to create a large herb boarder. There is a greenhose to recover and prepare for tomatoes. Fruit cages to make birdproof. And a garden wall to paint!

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.

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.

About the host

As a traveler you will enjoy the nature all around this quiet village. I grow many types of vegetables which helps which means we can create lovely homegrown healthy meals! 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. ...
