    Description

    Couples preferred,
    One or two weeks ideally.

    CURRENTLY GOT HELPERS, MAYBE LOOKING AGAIN IN A FEW WEEKS/MONTHS.

    Garden clearing, pruning, weeding.
    Replacing pond liner ..but that means lots of clearing out, reorganise rocks, plants etc. A big project. This would be our main project for helpers in October/November,

    Clearing cactus garden, it’s been a nightmare as I can’t weed in between plants! decided to completely clear it out and start afresh with a ‘kinder’ type of plant.

    (we work up to five hours per day and will discuss before you agree what is acceptable for both parties.
    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 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.

    We welcome helpers who are happy to work up to 5 hours a day (dep on number of days worked) (negotiable) we can discuss what suits us both. in return for accommodation and meals. usually Sundays free(or we check the forcast and arrange to suit us both if you want to do sightseeing) to explore & do your own thing. 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. Its a quiet location with no night life..so if you are seeking clubs etc then this location is not for you.
