secure the site for visitors and enhance the heritage through a pedagogic device.

• You will also be able to visit the beautiful region of Brittany and meet local organisations in order to foster intercultural exchanges and dialogue between generations.
• Clearing the main house’s ruins from the vegetation (fallen trees, ivy…) • Consolidating the house thanks to light building works with traditional lime • Weatherproofing the upper walls and gable end walls
