Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

300 year old renovated farmhouse, (semi-detached) full of character and charm, in central Brittany. Large garden. Attractive area, lots to do. The farmhouse is situated in the village of Mohon, which has basic shopping amenities. (Bar,bakery etc) In close proximity are the Medieval towns of Josselin, with its chateau and canal, & Vannes. Ploermel is also nearby and the Lac au Duc offers great facilities including a beach area and watersports.

This is a great location with lots of see and do. Car essential.

House consists of large kitchen/diner/living area, separate lounge, first floor has one double with ensuite shower room, and two further double rooms. Family bathroom with shower and bath. Large covered terrace, Enclosed garden.
Please note that our stairs have a handrail up one side, but are open to the other side, so the house is not be suitable for small children as there could be a safety issue here.
We have lots of flexibility as we have options to move out and stay elsewhere when exchanging. We have a cat and a dog who are both very friendly. We will often take our dog with us, but we would ask exchangers to look after the cat during their stay. (Just needs food and water and a few cuddles) We are also very open to house/petsitting instead of exchange.

We also have an attached annex with its own self-catering accommodation and entrance, which is completely self contained and all on the ground floor. It has an airy open plan living/dining/kitchen, one double bedroom and one shower room. Private terrace area overlooking the garden. Ideal for 2 people. This part can connect to the main house if needed so in all accommodation can sleep 8 if both parts are being used.

We have recently done a long term trip to Australia and New Zealand so will not be looking for long haul 'Down Under' for the foreesable, but we could be tempted by South Africa, USA (New England/San Fransisco) and Iceland, but we are open to offers.
