  • Description

    Description

    Hello,
    we are a small family living in the Corsican mountains.
    A corner of the mountains covered by a thick forest, and fresh rivers.
    We are gradually creating a micro-farm, in search of a certain autonomy. Our main activity is the garden, we have bees, and we also plant trees. Our work varies according to the seasons, in the spring, there is mainly the garden, the trees and the bees, in the summer we do the picking and the maintenance, and from August onwards we prepare for the winter, the winter vegetables, the wood, when autumn comes here, there are hazelnuts, chestnuts, olives.... And in winter we take care of the land and the fences.
    Each season is different, if you come to spend a stay here to exchange, you will surely find a place to help us, and also bring us new ideas ;-)
    We speak French, and with you surely in English.
    We ask you to come for a minimum stay of 15 days.

    For us it is the possibility to meet people from elsewhere. The help and exchanges we will create are our main motivation, for us and our daughter.
    Here you can stay in a natural place, learn about what we do, garden, bees, wild plants, etc.
    Then around there are the rivers, the mountain walks, and sometimes we go down to the sea to swim.
