We're a French/Danish couple with three young children, Emma, David and Benjamin. On our 4 ha smallholding in rural southern Corsica (altitude 300 metres), we run an agritourism/ecotourism place with an organic garden and orchard, an olive tree field, chicken and five bungalows (four for toutists and one to welcome woofers) in the Spring/Summer season.
Heidi is working on developing our organic agricultural activity and maintaining and improving the bungalows. The property also offers a natural swimming pool (the water is treated by plants) that is available to our woofers (just need to avoid the busiest times of the day when lots of guests are swimming).

We are looking for one or two practical and enthusiastic people to help, usually from March to November. You can participate in the concerning activities: organic vegetable gardening, weeding (of course!) irrigation, clearing off woodland (cutting, small trees, clearing off bushes), grass cutting, fencing, logging (chainsaw experience an advantage), track repair, bush clearing, small building and construction projects (we like new ideas!).

We sometimes eat meals together (usually once a week) and we supply the rest of your food. You are living in our bungalow Stiliccione, that has 2 rooms and all amenities.

Our property is located near the village of Petreto Bicchisano, a nice small village with shops, bars etc. and about 30 minutes from sea and high mountains. 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. We look forward to hearing from you.
Nous parlons :
Français et anglais et Danois.
