    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    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!).
