We are a German family that lives since more than 20 years in Greece. Our son Alexander was born here in 2004. Since 1997 we run a riding school in the quiet hills, close to the village Chrani, surrounded by olive groves, overlooking the sea and the mountains of the Mani. We are about 1km from the beach and the next village.
We live here in the middle of nature, growing organic vegetables and having a big interest in permaculture.
My job, Iris, are the horses and the gardening, Bernhard, my husband, is the craftsman always busy building or repairing something. The big passion of "my 2 men" are the motorcycles.

Help with Computers / internet
We are a German family and you will hear a lot of German. If you want to practice German in Greece - you are right at our farm! In the evening a hot meal is offered, the rest of the day you have to provide food yourself.
Actually we plan to trim bushes all over our land this winter and to create a paddock trail for our horses. People who know to work with their hands are welcome to help! November/December we'll harvest olives for a few days. And I would like to have help to optimize my site.
These are our plans for 2019/2020, but plans also can change!
Most days we work in the mornings and the afternoons are free.
German, English, Greek and a little French
We have a separate room with kitchenette and terrace. Because it has a doublebed, it is also suitable for 2 people
During your time off you can explore the beautiful surroundings by foot or by bike. We can lend you one of our mountain bikes. The sea is nearby and most years the water is warm until November. The bus from Koroni - a marvellous touristic village - to Kalamata - the town nearby for shopping - goes through our village.
Our Internet connection (a bit slow) can be shared.
