    I leave in a little village in the center of Corsica, very quiet but not so remote (20 minutes from Corte where is the university of Corsica).
    I’m renovating an old stone house and the garden needs an hand too :-)

    I’m very fond of travels too, mostly by bike or for hiking or rock climbing. I would be very glad to help you discover Corsica and its beautiful landscapes, mountains, nature, animals, in a way that you would never have on your own :-)
    I’m also a yoga teacher, so you would be welcomed in my yoga courses...
    The little town next to my place has a university, so there are lots of cultural manifestations like conferences, concerts, films...

  • Help


    I leave in an old house that I havent finished renovating yet, and the garden needs to be restored too. I also plant an elocogical vegetable garden...
    It would be wonderful for workawayers to be strong enough to help me making new fences, and stone walls in the garden. Skills with chainsaw and cutting the bushes would be nice too.
    The house itself is almost finished, but still a bit of coating to do, a wood terrace and other stuff like that...

  • Accommodation


    You would have a bedroom on your own and the direct access for a bathroom. The place is very quiet (just have my dog with me), and the view is wonderful. If you’re very fond of technology and roaming on internet and social networks, it’s probably not the best place for you :-)
    I grow most of my veggies and even if I can eat meat, it’s kind of rare now and I’m mostly vegetarian. I love to cook and would be very glad to prepare some nice french dishes.
    If you’re a smoker, you will have to smoke outside the house.
    I usually don’t eat breakfast myself, but wouldn’t mind preparing one for someone

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    There is no local transport, but you could take my bike to go for a ride, or I could bring you by car in the next town (Corte), where I go for my yoga classes. From Corte, really beautiful hiking to do, and possibilities from there to take a train for nearly all over Corsica.
    On my time off, I would also enjoy go rock climbing or hiking or have dinner chatting with friends, and you would be welcome to join me...
