    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    Our visitors could learn about animal husbandry and gardening among many other projects we always have on the go ( cider-making, wood-working ) We mostly have only Greek friends so they can learn about the Greek way of life.

    We are looking for help with the olive harvest, from roughly mid-November through until Christmas.
    After Christmas is the time for general maintenance, cleaning land, rebuilding terraces etc. In return for your exertions, we hope to offer you a unique insight into the lifestyle of rural Greece, the traditional methods of olive husbandry, and especially the food, wine and culture of the Peloponnese.We are sorry to say that we would prefer that you were not vegan or vegetarian (during the olive harvest it is hard to cater for different diets)
