The estate is 6000 square meter and is located in Northern Peloponnese, 750 m above sea level, right next to the wild forest and 20 minutes from the sea by car. A large variety of fruit trees, vegetables and herbs are currently the main food production, however chicken, ducks, and our beautiful donkey named Maya are also part of our farm (plan to get more animals shortly). We are a young couple two dogs and three cats with the vision to be self sufficient by regenerative and biodynamic agriculture.

We usually ask people to stay for a minimum of 1 month, but what we are also searching for people that would like to stay with us long term up to a year.

We do ask our helpers to stay for a minimum of one month as we think it is the least time required for this exchange to be worthwhile for both parties.
A fully equipped two bedroom guest house next to our farm is offered to our helpers, who will be offered their food needs but might have to cook for themselves and should be responsible for cleaning after themselves. Full kitchen and laundry facilities are available. If the house is occupied or people prefer, beautiful camping site is available with shower and toilet facilities.
