  • Beschreibung


    Mostly we are four people working,Stella,Arnulf, Alexandros and Alexandra, living at the beginning of the settlement of Vourvourou, Sithonia, the most magnificent peninsula of Halkidiki.

    Here we have a hotel/accommodation that runs in the summer months. We also have some land with olive trees in the mountains just behind. We are open, honest, simple and relaxed people, who want to enjoy our lives and love and to share what we can with anyone who comes through.

    Where we live; A 5 minute walk from the beach, 5 minutes behind are the mountains and 5 a minute boat ride (or 20 minute kayak) across is our beautiful little Diaporos island. The sun rises over the sea from behind Mount Athos on the next peninsula. In the summer, a 3-4 month season here, Vourvourou operates as a full swing tourist destination, with restaurants, bars, markets, accommodation, boat rentals, etc. The rest of the year it's virtually uninhabited with the exception of preparation and packing up from the season, and for the wildlife around. Most people go back to their homes in or nearby the village of Agios Nikolaos. Aside from the tourism, there is local agriculture, which consists mostly fruit (olive) groves, honey bees and goats.

    FOR spring:
    Right now we are looking for volunteers to join us and help with our chores and keep company in the olive fields; pruning for oil. This help is not so heavy but requires will and patience to develop rhythm.


    Different times of the year we welcome help with different tasks and projects, whether building, painting, gardening, helping the olive fields or working on creating other new things... we have many dreams, and the patience to see them realised slowly, but there's always much to do. Anyone who wants to share, enjoy and respect this beautiful home and place that we live can come. We have many friends around us living similarly, with small family/friend businesses that work mostly off tourism like apartments, a hostel, boat rentals, kayak rentals, restaurants, bars, etc, so that if the task that we offer doesn't suit you, or we are not as in need of help at that period as another, there are still opportunities around. We are flexible and adaptable people, but require communication for that to work. Some days we work much more, others we work less, seasonal life asks for that. So we ask that you too be open, honest, relaxed, flexible and adaptable, as we are.

    If you would like to visit us to help us around on the property, write and we will speak about what kind of work we are doing in that period and would like help with.

    Also, we provide food for you to cook and self-cater all food. We provide the basics but ask that if you have special requirements or particularly choose to eat more of luxury foods, that you buy for yourself or respect that we don't ourselves eat all the time but like to have for occasions, and share ours consciously.
