    We are a retired couple living in a traditional village in possibly one of the most beautiful areas of Greece, the Pelion peninsula. Esme, my S.African wife is an English teacher and I'm a consulting geologist (semi-retired). Esme has a pottery studio and is working there most of the time. Me, when not travelling for consulting jobs, I'm supervising various building projects for friends and generally doing maintenance and gardening.
    Our home is an over 200 year old restored traditional house with garden in the village of Lafkos in South Pilion. We love cats and have four different characters roaming about. The area around us is amazing. Green olive forests, lovely beaches for swimming, ancient cobbled paths for walking. There is also quite a large expat community in our area. Ideally we are looking for a couple to come and help us for about two weeks in May. We provide food and lodging. We are bilingual so if you want to polish up your Greek or English, this is a great opportunity. The village is easily accessible by bus, be it from Saloniki or Athens and there is also an airport in Volos, the main town of the region.
    We have three grown-up children who unfortunately live far away.

    In your free time you can enjoy the beauty of the area, go hiking or swimming and you could even use our double kayak to discover the coastline. We live a quiet life here, very much nature oriented and we would like volunteers to respect it and fit in to that way of life. We enjoy a Mediterranean diet with lots of fresh vegetables from the garden as well as fish and some meat. Please no illicit drugs. You're also expected to keep your own space clean and tidy and follow house rules eg no shoes upstairs etc.
