Barter a Week in Central Brittany in Exchange for a Wall Rebuild

Amanda Campbell, proprietor of Caurel Granges in Central Brittany, has a small wall which needs rebuilding (granite and slate).   She is thinking outside the box and writes, “I was wondering if any of your members/readers would be interested in a free week’s accommodation in our cottage in exchange for doing this work?   Obviously there are travel restrictions currently in place. On June 15, EU borders open with restrictions. We are in no rush for the work to be undertaken at the moment. I thought it might be of interest to apprentices trying to build a portfolio or retired members.”
The details of the property are within this website Please contact Amanda through her website. Photos:
