French/Danish couple and three children (5-month, 2 yrs old and 3 yrs old), with smallholding in rural southern Corsica (altitude 300 metres) near village with shops, bars etc. and about 30 minutes from sea and high mountains. We are looking for one or two practical and enthusiastic people to help, usually from April to November. Regular jobs include organic vegetable gardening, weeding (of course!)irrigation, clearing off woodland (cuttig small trees, clearing off bushes), grass cutting, fencing, logging (chain saw experience an advantage), track repair, bush clearing, small building and construction projects plus occasional child entertaining! Accommodation is usually in one of the cabins that we rent out in summer. They are fully equipped (kitchen, toilet, hot water) for four people. A cabin might be shared by two helpers. You could be in a tent though in high season (Jully/August) as the chalets are usually full. We offer board and lodging in exchange for about 5 hours work per day, 6 days per week but we are flexible - we sometimes eat meals together and we supply the rest of your food. We are about one hour from Ajaccio (airport and seaport) and half an hour from Propriano (seaport). There is a bus service to our village. Corsica is an exceptionally beautiful and wild island with fabulous walking and superb beaches and although part of France, has a distinct Corsican culture and language. Have a look at our website for more information. By the way, we are also WWOOF hosts. We look forward to hearing from you.
