    Hello all you beautiful souls,

    My name is Ingrid I am a healer and a spiritual guide from Austria but living on Crete almost 40 years now. Me and my Cretan husband living in a small village outside of Chania. We are parents of 4 adult children and meanwhile grandparents of 2 beautiful girls. We are owner of a restaurant including a pool and seven apartments. While my husband is busy running the restaurant and our farm, all my heart goes into my spiritual retreat center.
    I mainly need help for the winter, when the restaurant is closed and we have a lot to do on our farm. Our farm includes a vegetable garden, olive trees, sheeps, goats and pigs. So things to do are olive harvesting (November-January), general gardening, cutting fire wood, helping feed the animals. Although the restaurant is closed during the winter season does not mean there is no work to do. Small renovations always have to be done. In winter we can offer you a small apartment with WiFi and we provide you with food. During the winter time we would appreciate to host a couple or at least two people so you do not feel lonely.
    From January till April we will also need help with painting and preparing the house for season.
    In the summertime we are always really busy with the restaurant and the retreat center. We have a lot of spiritual seminars and guests from all over the world so we need your help for small things like cleaning the pool, gardening on our farm and general housekeeping.
    During season time we usually rent out our apartments so we can provide you a tent for sleep and you can use the common room of my office as well as the kitchen and bathroom. The restaurant is open every day so there is of course enough food for you.
    I am always interested in meeting people from all over the world and grateful for any help I can get.

    Hope to hear from you and lots of love from me.

    Our place is around 15 km outside of Chania and the buses to Chania city center run every 30 mins. The Bus station is directly in front of the restaurant. There are Ancient ruins 2km away with splendid views of the White Mountains. In just 10 min. walking distance there is a small Stone beach. And from here you have a beautiful view over the Souda Bay.
