  • Description

    Description

    We have a 4 bedroomed house in a beautiful part of Corfu, Greece. We are five minutes from the sea and the house is set in a medium-sized garden with 4 olive trees, and 8 fruit trees. I live here for 6 months of the year and need someone to help with painting, pruning the trees and general maintenance.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The visitor would learn something about living in Greece, learning English or some basic Greek. It is a very quiet area with a small hotel and three tavernas on the beach. You would have time to enjoy some wonderful swimming in the usually warm, clean sea or there are several very pleasant walks in the area. The nearest village and bus connecting to town and the south of the island is 30 minutes walk from the house.

    I would like someone to hew/prune the olive and fruit trees so he/she should have experience in this work. The work also includes painting, nothing major this year but probably gates and railings and possibly one bedroom. 4 - 5 hours work a day for 5 days. I also need help in the house to clean and prepare for guests.

    The accommodation is one room with a double bed in the house with use of bathroom. The room has its own balcony and privacy if you want it. There is also an outdoor shower if you prefer. Continental breakfast and one meal a day are provided.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    On your time off you are completely free to come and go as you please. The beach is 5 minutes walk away or there are other beaches within easy walking distance from the house. The village is a 30 minute walk away and there you will find several cafes, tavernas, mini-markets and chemist. We are, as you understand, not on a bus route so getting around is a bit restricted but not a problem if you are prepared to walk.

    I WOULD BE VERY HAPPY TO ACCOMMODATE SOMEONE WITH ART QUALIFICATIONS IN EXCHANGE FOR LESSONS IN ART, PREFERABLY WATERCOLOURS AND SKETCHING. ALSO THE PERSON WOULD HAVE TO HAVE ART TEACHING EXPERIENCE.
