  • Description


    I am Dimitris and I own a farm in Northern Peloponissos. You can reach the farm easily from Athens airport,by train and then by bus in two hours. The apartment that is available is 100 square meters with 3 bedrooms , a kitchen, living room and a bathroom . The house was renovated in November 2017. The first farm is about 20,000 square meters and is a walnut orchard , a mountain tea plantation and oregano herbs. The other farm is full of lemon trees , olive trees and some orange and mandarin trees. I need help in the farm all year long.
