Meet your host, Jacques

Host on Airbnb since 2020
  • Identity verified
I am an Alsatian of origin who gave up everything to come and live in Brittany and make pancakes. It became my world and I met a true legend from the Finistère pancake industry with whom I learned a lot and we opened a school to introduce people to this fascinating world.
