Skipper / Cook – Corsica – Seasonal

Skipper / Cook

We have a unique and exciting opportunity for a skipper/cook to work in a lovely family summer home in southern Corsica.  We’re looking for a candidate with good cooking skills, as well as good experience with small boats as the client also owns a small boat.

This is a great opportunity for someone to have a good mix of life on land and at sea with a great work/life balance. You will be working alongside a housekeeper and gardener who already work for the family.

Responsibilities & Ideal Candidate:

Chef: There will always be the principals in residence, but they enjoy having 2-4 guests for meals, a few times a week.  Then occasionally like might host bigger groups for dinner parties, however, if large enough they might get additional help in.

The principals like a focus on healthy eating and will work with you to plan meals together. The chef must shop and keep everything stocked and the kitchen area clean. (No housekeeping duties in the rest of the house).  So, driving licence is essential as the property is 15 minutes out of town and basic French would be great for shopping.

Skipper: The clients have a small motor boat, 7,5 m. Boston whaler. They like to go out for a few hours once or twice a week, weather permitting. The candidate must have valid permit, and safe boating skills and experience as the Mediterranean can be shifty and risky.

Your working hours won’t be set, so we’re looking for someone who is flexible as if there are events or house guests, we’ll expect more hours, but will balance that out during low-activity periods.


Accommodations:  a room off the main house, detached, semi-private.

Salary: DOE for the right candidate – we understand this is a unique role.

Duration:  July, August and September 2019.
