    The apartment and the two villas are for rent, normally weekly all year around. Half of our guests are from Germany the rest come from all Europe. We want try this barter. Little works for hospitality.

    We will offer you, like for our tourist guest : all furnished apartment, electricity, gas, water, linens, towels, air condition or heating, wi-fi area for free, 2 bikes. The apartment is sea view, 40 meters from the sand beach.
    We cant promise food because we offer a high value apartment. But you can try our wine...and the product of our land (lemon, almonds, olive oil,...)
    Or maybe trying we can change our opinion in the future and we can offer food. But in this moment we can't promise it.

    For now the work consist helping us with maintenance of house (painting gates, fences, walls, woods), cleaning and washing in the homes baby sitting, and some others little gardening works (wood cutting..). We have a lemons farm then we need harvest the lemons. .
