    Help me maintain/renovate our Corsican olive-oil mill near a small mountain village in the Balagne-region. There are numerous maintenance projects, so this would really best suit someone who has some masonry and carpentry skills.

    This is an old olive oil mill, situated in a valley below a tiny mountain village. We are about a 25 minutes drive from some amazing beaches. Our property is at a cul-de-sac, along a creek with waterfalls, and with numerous terraces which used to be cultivated (fruit trees, etc.)

    If you are an artist (sculptor/woodworker, for example) there is the possibility to set up a studio/atelier.

    This would fit someone who would like to improve their French. I speak English, French, German, and Swedish fluently; Spanish conversationally.

    I'm very knowledgeable about Corsican history, culture, and architecture, which I'm always happy to share.

  • Unterkunft


    Private room with a twin-size bed. This is for one person only. Sorry, no couples and no families!

    Meals to be shared. I would provide the food. (I'm a chef, but it would be fun to occasionally cook together). 3 healthy meals/day cooked with love and mainly using local organic in-season ingredients.

    It's a big house, but currently, there is only 1 bathroom, which we would have to share. There is a huge living-room/kitchen with a woodstove.

    We have satellite TV and internet/WiFi.

    Please be available to commit for at least 1 month.

    Was noch ...

    I'm pretty flexible, but I'll be looking for help for about 15-20 hours/week. The rest of the time would be yours.

    We would share a car unless you bring your own, so it's imperative that you know how to drive stick-shift and have a valid driver's license with at least 3 years of proven accident-free driving (you would need to supply a certificate from your current car insurance).

    We have wonky DSL-service which, at the best of time, generates about 14mbps. However, it is sufficient for me to run my online business.

    We live with a very old and frail dog. But he does enjoy canine company, so as long as your dog knows how to be gentle and is well-behaved, this might be an option. He does not get along with "intact" male dogs. Feel free to tell me more...
