A French conservation agency is looking for residents for a remote island off the Brittany coast. Inhabitants will be expected to look after the small island’s farm and run a B&B. A shortlist of about 15 applicants will go through a rigid selection process aimed at finding residents best suited to living and caring for the remote island. The couple who live there — but are leaving to raise their children in an area where getting to school doesn’t require a boat trip — describe their lives as tough but rewarding.
