  • Description

    Description

    We are a family of 4 running a small & cosy kids-friendly hotel next to the beach and a beautiful seaside pine forest, as well as an innovative travel community which organizes trips in Greece.

    In a nutshell offer holiday apartments for up to 5 persons, with free bicycles, Wi-Fi and amazing baby amenities. The travel community offers tailored-made excursions in Greece to people who, in their lifelong quest for a smart and balanced way to spend their invaluable free time, appreciate the importance of 1. outdoor activities and everything that involves motion and aerobic training; 2. holistic approaches to their psychosomatic wellbeing; 3. art and 4. quality food.

    We love hosting friends and helpers from around the world. We enjoy the community of like-minded people very much, showing them the beauties of our area, eating and traveling together.

    What we offer

    We offer accommodation next to the beach and the forest. In your free time you can enjoy swimming, our SUP surf, walking and jogging in the forest, our bicycles, the communal tennis court a few steps from our hotel, our yoga mats, ping pong and giant chess on our amazing roof garden and much more.

    We offer meals, in the form either of communal cooking with us, or just the ingredients for you to cook for yourself.

    We regularly organise local excursions, which you may join!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are located in a small village next to the sea. Although the area receives quite a lot of tourists in the summer, it is mostly Athenians on a break from the big city. This means that the area has retained most of its authenticity and charm. If you are looking for a place where you can see how real Greeks live, this is a very good opportunity for you!
    As individuals we are very interested in music, gastronomy, wine and outdoor activities. Living with us you will have the opportunity to learn Greek; find out about Greek music and have some guitar lessons (one of us is a music teacher too!); join us as we roam the mountains and the sea around us; taste wonderful wines (we live in a wine-making area) and taste great quality food!

    1) We are looking for a caring and sweet person to take care of our children and home from April or May 2018 to the end of the summer season (October/November). Good English language skills are a must!
    Your tasks will include taking the baby for walks and playing with him, changing him and feeding him, reading to him and putting him to bed occasionally. For the older child, reading, playing, walks and games and helping her with her English! Around the house, we will need help with keeping things tidy and clean. This involves regular sweeping, mopping, laundry, cleaning etc. We would also be grateful for some who cooks well and can help us out with meals!
    2) We are also looking for a creative handyperson skills for small building, construction, woodwork, gardening etc tasks around the hotel. This involves projects such as: building wooden shelves and cupboards, renovating the joints and silicone between bathroom tiles, setting tiles, sanding and repainting wooden furniture, helping us build a bbq (and maybe even a sauna!) etc. For the coming season we are planning quite a lot of renovations inside the hotel, so there will be many interesting things to do! This helper would be welcome in April and May mainly.
    Other skills that would be appreciated are: grapic design (we want to reprint our excursions booklet, as well as create other offline and online visual material), content creation (writing about the excursions we go to, about the area, about its history), photography & photo-editing (we always need good pictures for our online media!).

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    You will be lodged inside the hotel, either in a small room with sea view (in-season, when the hotel has guests) or in one of the hotel's apartments (during the off-season months). The hotel has a nice garden and a roof garden with an amazing view of the sea. We have a multi-lingual library, which you can use and free WiFi. We are located just steps from the beach.
    As regards meals: Our home kitchen is where most of the cooking takes place. We usually each have our own breakfast at different times, lunch all together (we divide up into cooking team, setting-the-table team and cleaning team!) and dinner flexibly. Please note that we avoid meat and dairy at home, prefer organic produce (we go to a special market in Athens for fresh organic fruits and vegetables!) and eat fish or seafood approximately once per week.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The hotel is located just a few steps from the beach and from a wonderful seaside pine forest. We offer bicycles, a SUP board, a ping pong table, giant chess, tennis raquettes and generally speaking a healthy and gorgeous location! We are located just 2 hours from Athens, so you can spend some time getting to know that great city too! The village has tavernas and coffee places, as well as a small mini market. The closest town is 2km away and you can reach by foot or bicycle through the seaside pine forest. There you will find shops, tavernas, bars etc.
