Hi all! My name is Demetra I come from Athens. I ran my own language school for 20 years and now I live on Aegina Island where I run my own small hotel. The hotel is situated in the fishing village of Perdika. Perdika is a traditional, picturesque village 9km far away from the main town of Aegina. In the village there is a small supermarket, bakeries, petrol station, coffee shops and taverns by the sea and many more.
In the village there is also a nicely,organized rocky beach and a small sandy beach. Within walking distance (10minutes) there is also another sandy beach with a beach bar. Also 3-5 km far away there are two more beaches. Last the beautiful island of Moni (full of trees and crystal clear sea) is 12 minutes by boat from the small port of Perdika (5 euros both ways).
Something about me. I like photography and also I enjoy traveling and visiting different countries, galleries and writing about local architecture, art crafts, customs, people etc. Both, my house, and studios are in a very nice location with amazing views.
I am looking for one or two reliable, honest and active persons, who can help me around with the general maintenance, cleaning of rooms, gardening and the breakfast preparation.
I am looking for workawayers between beginning of June - end of November.
Please contact me only if you can volunteer at least for 3 weeks or more.
p.s. Send us a message and either me or my son Dimitris will reply!

Helping with Tourists
During the summer period (May-September) the tasks are mainly related with the guests of the hotel and they are:
- Help with the preparation of breakfast
- Cleaning rooms/hotel's stairs/front yard
- Water the plants/gardening
During the winter and spring months the hotel doesn't have many guests. The tasks this period are related with the general maintenance of the hotel such as:
- Tiding up/reorganizing the storage rooms
- Cleaning the gardens (during spring time)
- Other small construction (e.g. placing tvs in the rooms etc.)
English, Greek, French
A room with two beds (one or two volunteers of the same sex), private toilet, small kitchenette and air-condition. Breakfast is also offered. You can use the utilities in the bar (microwave, coffee machine etc.) and also any of the areas of the hotel (living room, roofgarden etc.)
Aegina is an amazing small island very close to Athens but so far from the noisy streets of the big city. An ideal place to escape and relax. There are many beaches around the island to discover and also lots of activities you can do (biking, hiking, sight seeing, open air cinemas, horse riding etc.)
In Perdika there are plenty nice coffee bars and taverns to taste fresh fish or drink a cocktail.
Nearby there is also the beautiful small island of Moni ideal for one day trips.
In the winter months the island doesn't receive so many tourists. This time although you can not enjoy the sun and the sea, you can do lots of other activities, take photographs, paint etc.
One of the great advantages of the island is its location near Athens. Even in winter, you can always take the ship (1 hour) to the big city to visit a theater, museum or do some other activity.
