  • Description


    We are a couple with one daughter born 2010.All together artistic spirits. Live within an organic olive grove with 300 trees. Our place is 4 km from a small village Petalidi, 30 km from the town Kalamata in the south of peloponnese, Greece. We are not “real” farmers, we enjoy the work with the land and express through the art of music, handcrafting, love and Life. We have cats and plenty of free wild animals like owls, foxes, jackals, hawks, plenty of singing birds and many, many more. There is a regular bus connection to the town Kalamata or Messinsi in case you will need something that you can’t get in the village Petalidi that is close to our land.

  • Help


    We are looking for 1-2 persons to help us during the Olive harvest. Our mission involves a period of 4 months of work (November - February).It's quite physical work, good to burn away toxins and clean your spirit. Work can be flexible (4-5 hours a day).Nature is unpredictable and sometimes it’s raining, so then we don’t work. Other works around our little houses are possible (Repairing, cleaning, gardening, maintaining). Please have some closed shoes, warm working clothes and sleeping bags. Please be aware of the fact that we spent most of the day outdoor. That means we cook, eat ,relax and just are in our lovely small outdoor ''Living room''. Yes, all the year through and we love it. We live and share the silence of Nature between the trees with love and magic. We can practice and share our visions together under the sky.

  • Accommodation


    We offer a full equipped little house with kitchen (fridge, oven) a small shower, bathroom, heating and internet connection.
    We will provide for your basic cooking ingredients, according your diet , so you have to prepare your own dinners.
    Of course sometimes it can happen that we can eat all together.
    We find it uninspiring to have a boss-worker relationships with the people that come here. We prefer to see them as beautiful free travelers who love nature and alternative ways…

    What else ...

    We love nature and enjoy feel the seasons change. Every season has so many beautiful details to offer. We left the cities long time before, and we never regret it. Every day has a unique magic and this is what we are living here. Winters we collect the olives, Springs we play with the earth and get drunk from Nature, Summers we travel, play music, making art, enjoy the beautiful ocean, Autumn we gather all of our treasures from our journeys and we are back to the beginning of this magical circle of life.
