Great food, wine, beer and a big private bedroom on offer to happy, hard-working outdoorsy couples for Autumn olive picking 2021!
Time to get the land back into shape after a long, hot, dry summer, whatever that brings...
Practical skills are needed! Can you climb trees? Are you physically strong? Repair stonework? Use a chainsaw?
Please get in touch if this sounds like you...you don't count the hours you work and I don't count how much wine and beer you drink afterwards...ok? Work hard, play hard...that's the 'deal' here.

This is pretty much dictated by the time of year.
Spring is all about repairing, cleaning, painting, weeding and property face-lifting for the summer months.
Autumn is concentrating on the cleaning of olive trees and picking of the olives.
Unique opportunity to learn about pottery and to make a piece of their own!
I need enthusiastic, energetic, positive thinking couples who don't mind hard work in exchange for bed, board, excellent food and good local wine/beer! (and of course with 2 days off a week to do with as you please, 3 days if you're olive picking as these are longer working days, we have to get them harvested as quickly as possible once we start!).
Large double bedroom (or twin beds). Own bathroom. Hot indoor and outdoor showers!
