Great food, wine, beer and a big private bedroom on offer to happy, hard-working 'outdoorsy' couples for October and November. General gardening/weeding/fence and path repair as well as preparation for 1st week of November olive picking...!!
2 couples welcome at the end of October so we have a lively team effort/party atmosphere to get the olives in...once picked you get to see them pressed and turned into the finest olive oil!!

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!).
