  • Description


    Hello, my name is Martha. I am in my 70s and a teacher of English. I live in a two-storey house in the outskirts of Alexandroupolis in North Greece. It is located in a very quiet place, on top of a hill overlooking the coast and the city center, both of which are only a few minutes away. The property is a 7.5 acre piece of land with various fruit trees, olive trees, pine trees etc. There is a vineyard with about a hundred plants and a garden with all the seasonal vegetables, tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchinis, various chilly peppers, etc. After my husband's passing, 4 years ago, I've been taking care of it all by myself but now I lack the stamina to do all the housework or take care of the garden. I can offer accommodation as well as meals, in exchange for help with the property and household chores.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Helpers here could explore nearby picturesque villages along the seaside or mountains around. There are two or three museums in the city and a nice walk or bicycle lane along the port. Regarding public transportation I don't know much-as I drive everywhere - but we can find out as needed. As for myself I spend the day mostly at home reading, watching films on YouTube or playing games and of course cooking my favorite meals and desserts.
