  • Description


    We always need people who are good at painting, good at gardening and every thing else.
    But at this moment we are looking for somebody for dry-stone-walling. If you have experience, please contact us with some pictures of walls you made before.

    On our 10 hectares ecological reserve land we have fig, almond,olive and carob trees. We are planning to make part of the land as a rural tourist area where the people can stay in one of the 7 old houses of which a few are still ruins. Most of them are already restored.

    We need help with maintaining the property s.a. gardening, building, painting...
    Because you often work on your own and live in your own cottage, it is preferable for couple's or friends to stay here and not for somebody alone.

    We can assure you a good time (read the feedback messages to our profile)

    We supply a comfortable and easy going way for people to stay here. We don't demand a lot and leave lots of things to personal responsibility. At the end of the week, together we will see what needs more attention.
