  • Description


    My profile changed in August when my husband suddenly died. I am a retired American that has lived in Greece for over 40 years. I graduated from MSU in Michigan. My home is very American. I speak English some Greek and I also speak German. We live in a passive solar house and consider the environment to be something to be cared for. We have about 6 stemmas on a steep hill just above Athens. We are 2 km from the commuter train which goes to Athens every hour and arrives there in 22 minutes making it easy to tour the city and to return. There is always something that needs doing. We had a terrible forest fire. Our house was saved but needs some repair. At least it is still very habitable.

    Food is home cooked. I live in a farming area very close to Kifissia. Here it is quiet but easy to get to lively Greek life. Absolutely no smoking. Depending on how many people are here at the same time, I may not be able to provide each person their own room. Couples would have their own space and bathrooms would have to be shared. Bedrooms are air-conditioned.

    Now I only have one dog.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    My husband, Leonard, was an exchange student to Pakistan in the International Farm Youth Exchange program. That experience changed his life. When my husband was alive we traveled a lot and we enjoyed meeting different nationalities. I appreciate different points of view.

  • Aide


    Farming experience is a plus. Knowing how to set up a dripper system is also helpful. Knowing how to use a weed eater or strimmer is very useful. Knowing how to paint some interior walls would be good especially now that we have smoke damage.

    We live in a one family home. You would have a room with two twin beds and would have to share your own bath room. The bed rooms are air conditioned.

    Autres infos...

    We are 1 km from the bus, 2 km from the commuter train, about 20 minutes by car to the subway station. That depends on the time of day. Within 22 minutes the commuter train has you in central Athens. That same train takes you to the port and from there the islands. Athens has lots of things to do and see. Far too many to list here. Young people like visiting the islands.

    Please note the commuter train is different than the subway, and it usually runs every hour during business hours. The subway runs every 10 min. If I want to go to Athens, I take the commuter train and then go by subway.
