    Description

    I am looking for a MAN or a COUPLE who would like to experience living on a beautiful Greek island and help out with gardening, maintenance, white washing. There is usually some painting to be done, sanding and painting some furniture, help with gardening and planting, watering, feeding chickens and taking care of the coop etc. If a couple I expect a little help with light cooking, especially for yourselves if you want to eat pasta etc and kitchen duty once a day. In the house at the moment are only myself, and my mother. I usually have workawayers end of April and May and then mid September and October.
    Towards the end of June and part of July 2020 I will need a MALE workawayer to accompany my Down syndrome son to the beach and out some evenings a week, so the workawayer who comes for my Down syndrome son will not be doing garden work etc. ( I HAVE SOMEONE FOR MY SON FOR JUNE 2020)

    We offer room and board, the opportunity to learn Greek and/ or Italian or English. We are English/American but speak Greek and Italian as well.We are Christians. There are plenty of activities on the island, a gym, exercise classes, Greek dancing and walking trails.

    We eat all natural food, no processed food at all!!

    You will have lots of free time to go to beaches and go out in the evenings, it WILL seem like a holiday!!!

    By the way, there is another boat company which offers cheaper tickets, 40:00 euro return from Volos to Alonnisos. There is also another company that has a bus which leaves Athens and goes to Mantoudi, Evia and from there is a boat that is only 2 hours from Alonnisos and cheaper also.

There are many footpaths for walking around the island to visit secluded beaches and tiny churches, boat trips that visit secluded parts of the island and neighboring islands, one with a monastery. It is also the home of the seal Monachus and there is a male seal 2 years old called Billy that likes people and visits the beaches..
