(we work up to six hours per day and will discuss before you agree what is acceptable for both parties)
quite a bit of our tasks are what we consider 'manual labour' so we really need people with a bit of muscle. plenty of rubbing down outside walls and painting., staining/ painting the log cabin. heaps of weeding and clearing up in the garden.,ditch clearing. possibly clearing cactus garden
( not the nicest of jobs)
There are probably endless more jobs to be done as time goes on but that gives you an idea.
Accommodation provided in log cabin (click on our website link for more details about the log cabin), one double and one twin room or if cabin rented then one double room in main house. Area available for camper-vans/ camping
In return for approx 5-6 hours with rest of day to explore the local beaches or just relax.
All meals provided.
Free WiFi available in main house and cabin.
We are situated about in a rural setting 5/6 km from nearest town and there is no shop in our small village.(bicycle available) No night life to speak of, but plenty of olive groves, Greek dogs barking, the Ionian sea is about 6 km away (60 km of unspoiled beach to explore and enjoy) and there is a mountain behind us, so plenty of walking areas to explore. We love to hear about travelers experiences and both have a good sense of humor Life is about getting the most out of any situation and having some fun too.
We look forward to hearing from you.

Internet available. We live approx 20 mins walk from local town (Kyparissia) and local beaches another 10 mins walk, 5 mins walk to local taverna in village. Very quiet location with lots of beautiful walks. The Ionian sea is our view and behind the house is a small mountain. The area is full of olive trees, so lots of local farmers.
