Meet your host family: Gilles in France

Welcome to Gilles and Sarah's, speaking French, visits and gastronomy.

Hello, hi, hello! We are a couple from Quimper (29 Finistère). My name is Gilles, retired from teaching, having worked in a high school in Quimper for many years. My partner is Sarah, a bookseller in Concarneau. My 3 children are now grown up and no longer live at home, but we see each other every week. We live in Quimper, a small Breton town located in a beautiful and wild region. Our city is very touristy thanks to the sea and gastronomy (pancakes, lace, far, Breton cake, fish, cider, etc...). We wish to share our customs and gastronomy through the learning of the French language. I speak English almost fluently. We have a very small dog, his name is Rustine.

We are a serious and dynamic couple, naturally sociable and educational (I was a teacher for a large part of my professional career). We have several activities and diverse passions such as reading, the English language, going out and walks, wine and grape varieties, cars and travel, Breton cuisine including pancakes and Breton cake (which I can teach you how to make), and sports. We wish to share all these activities with the person staying with us. We regularly welcome young foreigners as we host football players who come to play a tournament in May in our region.

The room we offer is on the 2nd floor of our house and can accommodate a maximum of 2 people. It has a double bed, 2 chairs, a desk, and storage space, and was renovated in 2014. It is nice and clean. There is no private bathroom. We live in a 3-story house with a small garden. It is located near bus lines and all amenities, but outside the city center. The neighborhood is quiet.

Best regards,
Sarah and Gilles

Gilles y Sarah son una familia estupenda amigable, cariñosa y siempre interesada en el bienestar de su huésped. La estancia de Alma fue muy agradable. Sarah y Gilles son acogedores, cercanos y familiares, se han ocupado a la perfección de Alma que ha disfrutado un montón y ha mejorado notablemente el idioma. Pasó una semana con salidas increíbles, paseos por el centro de la ciudad, visitas culturales, ocio de aventura con tirolina, cocina, juegos de mesa y sesiones de cine...Son una familia diez para recomendar una y otra vez. Muchas gracias por vuestra acogida tan calurosa siempre estaremos agradecidos.
