We have 400 olive trees, which produce approximately 2 tons of olive oil annually. We also produce a large amount of our own food from an extensive vegetable garden. Animals include chickens,,turkeys,sheep,pigs, 4 dogs and many cats.

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    Our visitors could learn about animal husbandry and gardening among many other projects we always have on the go ( cider-making, wood-working ) We mostly have only Greek friends so they can learn about the Greek way of life.

    We are looking for help with the olive harvest, from roughly mid-November through until Christmas.
    After Christmas is the time for general maintenance, cleaning land, rebuilding terraces etc. In return for your exertions, we hope to offer you a unique insight into the lifestyle of rural Greece, the traditional methods of olive husbandry, and especially the food, wine and culture of the Peloponnese.We are sorry to say that we would prefer that you were not vegan or vegetarian (during the olive harvest it is hard to cater for different diets)

    You will be living in a 2 bedroom wooden cabin just 50m from the main house. All meals will be eaten at the house, but you will have your own space should you need it.
