If you like the idea of being off the grid, then village life is for you. We are working on a special project, reworking the garden, going towards being organic, growing fruit, vegetables & nuts, working closely with a garden landscape designer, with collaboration from our friends in the south, we are about peace and unity, while getting back to the basics. We have a large garden with over 150 trees, on site a 3 bedroom house in the middle with all the usual necessary facilities. The garden is at the top of the village of Akova very Near to city of Famagusta, which has many historical sites as well as being a very nice place with lots of places to eat, drink, visit & of course the best beaches on the island.

Hands on experience, with a lively environment, many different opportunities. Having some knowledge about agriculture & or trimming fruit trees would be very advantageous. Ideally someone that can add to the garden. Ours is a unique project in that we have been buliding slowly but now we are working closely with someone who is adding elements we previously wouldn't have thought of. Our the main goal is create a usable space with many different purposes. We'd like to meet many different people who can help leave a legacy & make us think or see things unthought of.
Mostly garden related i.e someone with experience with Mediterranean gardens(trimming fruit trees & olive trees, in the future plan to add to the project. General cleaning up the garden
& maintaining trees,
Someone with experience in Composting /mulching,
Knowledge about Pruning trees would be good. Also adding something unique to the garden leaving a piece for vistors to see, creating a family environment.
English, Turkish, Cypriot, some greek.
Bedrooms are available within the house but also tents could be provided. We have a working kitchen where mostly traditional Cypriot meals are offered but they'll be many surprises, bathroom toilets all the facilities you'd expect.
Lots of traditional cultural places of interest very close to the beach & to other cities, we'll pay special attention to you on your visit. We look forward to meeting you.
