Area: CENTRAL MACEDONIA,GOUMENISSA, MOUNT PAIKO,Hey everybody, ************************ LAST UPDATE (10/12/12)......We are looking for people from the 8th of January 2013, we have some projects starting then, fencing, hatchery preparing and planting trees and herbs and things around the house, all depending on weather of course.... Cheers! ************************ My partner Dirk and me (Maria) have chosen to live in the North part of mainland Greece, Central Macedonia, Goumenissa at Mount Paiko region after travelling and living around the world. After Aug 2012, in our family we also have our little Achilleas! The small town is located at the foothill of mountain Paiko, our perception of 'heaven on earth'. We are into all short of projects, on tourism promotion for this area, along with running a small traditional guesthouse ('home away from home' as our guests describe it!) and we are also renovating our home at a small village next to Goumenissa, called Pentalofo. Goumenissa, where the guesthouse is, is a 4.500 people town, at the foothill of Mount Paiko, where one can find five visitable wineries, a music culture of self taught brass band musicians and a few bars and tavernas, quite vivid during summer and less busy during the rest of the year. During the next months (November & December 2012) we're interested in getting some help with preparing and working in the garden, and when the weather does not permits help with the everyday work we do at the guesthouse and the house maintenance...or Achilleas' maintenance! We are looking forward to receive structured visitors that - share our passion for nature and working out doors - are willing to share knowledge and experience, teach us what they know, but also to learn from us - are broad minded, easygoing and appreciate the value of laughter and humor in life! - are willing to help us around on our daily duties and plans - take initiative and are self motivated in contributing - have ideas and positive energy to contribute on the development and marketing of this area we live in. We HIGHLY appreciate people who can take initiative and do not need to be asked all the time to do things. Our day routine is pretty much straight forward...we totally understand that people would have things to ask or that they might need to know a few things before they start really contributing....what we don't understand, is why people would get into all this trouble of entering the network and start arranging visits to people, unless they have sth to offer or a contributing and a mutually exchanging mentality!!!
