    Description

    thanks , please know that we might not b here from November, but write in and we can arrange for you to look after our place, we hope that you can cope with yourself and take care of our animals...

    YES.... our slow period has begun, so we chill more.... we do somethings during cooler part of the day then SIESTA.... this would be your opportunity to either learn or do your own thing,
    most of the work is watering between 6 and 8 pm

    PLEASE READ ALL THE PROFILE........

    I am living a new experience within nature and the simplicity of life.

    we live a simple but healthy life, not too much stress and very relaxed flexible in all we do , our clock is the weather or the daylight, generally we do around 6hours, but DO BE FLEXIBLE OR IF YOU WISH WE CAN SIT AND GIVE YOU A SCHEDULE

    We have a small olive grove close to a typical town (600 metres away) , here there is a small house and lots of free space, you could do some olive trimming and general maintenance , could be that some time you will be left to have some free time and enjoy the local life style.

    Exchange thoughts, ideas and we will all learn something new.

    We teach you to get away from the rat race and learn...we can cater for many peoples needs, no racism or discrimination allowed

    Course are available for specific needs, as i am living off what i can make from my own back i would ask you to participate with basic food costs........this will include organic everything , natural non supermarket foods...wine is only to be drunk in moderation LOL .....
    i am sure that your experience will benefit you for many years , i am not a workaholic but place people before all

    I AM PLANNING TO ORGANISE A CULTURAL CENTRE FOR ALL TYPES OF PEOPLE TO EXCHANGE EXPERIENCES AND HELP PROMOTE THE AREA

    we will be using our own currency in a micro economy, its fun and unique for the area.

    also due to many people who say they will come and then do not , i will ask for a 20 euro deposit which you will get back when you arrive. THIS WILL CUT OUT THOSE THAT ARE LITTLE SERIOUS IN THEIR LIVES

    We are not a working farm so please help with basic food costs, for less than a beer we can eat better than top restaurants, wholesome, organic and also we teach you to cook it

    I CANNOT PROMISE A ROOM BUT THERE IS LOTS OF SPACE IN OUR PAGLIARI typical eco buildings like huts
    3 UP AND RUNNIN AND 1 UNDERCONTRUCTION WILL ADD PHOTOS IN A FEW DAYS

    We dont have a set work schedule as its rather a small place, but there is always something that needs fixing or keeping the garden from overtaking everything.

    most is all experimental using simple traditional ways, no theory but practical..... its working so i want to carry on......

    We eat simply, wholesome food, lots of it fresh picked in the garden or around the area.

    We cater for vegetarians and respect all other too.

    IT SEEMS THAT LATELY SOME PEOPLE BELIEVE THAT THEY CAN BOOK AND THEN NEVER TURN UP WITHOUT EVEN GIVING NOTICE, IF YOU ARE ONE OF THESE PLEASE DONT BOTHER, REMEMBER THAT YOU ARE SPOILING SOMEONE ELSE'S CHANCE AND SOONER OR LATER IT WILL CATCH UP WITH YOU TOO ---- FROM NOW I WILL LEAVE VERY NEGATIVE FEEDBACK TO THESE IDIOTS

    What else ...

    We try and be fair , some days maybe we need to finish and you will be asked to do a little extra, but then it will balance with the days we might have a rest.

    Please be flexible and i am sure we will get along well.

    Should you be the type of person who wants a schedule to work to this we can arrange when we meet.

    All work is non professional and you can share your opinion on things

    We are able to teach you many things from gardening to cooking to language too many to mention, we practise our traditions as much as possible.
