    Description

    Hi,I have an emergency!! I have 2 last minute cancellations.. so I don't have anyone to accompany my Down syndrome son to the beach!! I need someone from the 24 th June to July 5 th for him, but you can come earlier and help around and stay a bit longer also for gardening, chickens, etc. I need a man, or a couple, unfortunately girls are not suitable for my son
    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. It would be helpful if you know how to use a drill, paint, a bit of carpentry, planting of the vegetable garden, fixing the chicken coop and painting inside and outside. . 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.
    Towards the end of June and part of July 2019 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.

    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.

    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 there is a boat that is only 2 hours from Alonnisos and cheaper also.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Here there are Greek dance classes and also yoga and a gym to work out in. 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..
