    Description

    Hi, we are a family of Brits living in Greece (2 kids still at home). We usually only need help with the olive harvest at the end of November but occasionally also take helpers in the spring for olive tree pruning and preparation work for the summer rental season. Unfortunately we are unable to accept helpers during the summer months.
    We live in a very beautiful, unspoilt corner of the Peloponnese close to magnificent beaches and mountains. The area is rural and very authentic. We live 4 kms from a pretty town which offers all facilities.
