Hi, we are a couple in mid 30's living on a small village in East Zagori.
Our place is about 30 minutes by car from Ioannina a beautifull city with 100.000 people, and about 20 minutes from Metsovo.
Zagori is a beautiful area consisting of 46 traditional villages. Is the best well preserved mountainous area of Greece. There is a great variety of plants and animals. There are many sights to see, many paths for hiking.
We try hard to create an organic farm.
We start grown organic beans, tomatos, we make our own red wine and a traditional drink called tsipouro.We will also start grown wheat, lentil, and other plants.
We are also have 4 dogs, some chickens,Hens,rabits and hare.
The place is ideal for people who wants to live in the nature,help with gandens and farm and do some trekking and explore Zagori, Metsovo,Ioannina etc.

Volunteers will work about 4 hours a day and 5 days per week. We want help to our organic crops, someone to feed dogs and chickens, and some time some help with building works to an old house that we want to rebuild (you dont need to know anything about build works, its too simple). If you need more free time we can do it, we just need to arrange that.
You will stay to our house, you will have your own room with double bed, and also your own bathroom and shower. Bedrooms and bathrooms are in the second floor, in the first floor is the kithcen and the livingroom (with fireplace and TV) that you will also have full access any time you want.
What else ...
We are 33 years old, openminded people.
We preffer the voluteers to be a couple, near to our age, so we can understand eachother and also have some fun when we finish the work.
Volunteers can do trekking in the mountains of Zagori, Valia calda and Metsovo, you can also tour to Ioannina city (about 30 minutes by car), its a beautifull city with many sights , many restaurants and bars.
In summertime you can drive about an hour and swimm to the Ionio beaches (preveza, thesprotia).
