I am Greek sharing my life between Greece, France and Canada. I have a lot of energy and I love learning! I like exploring and traveling. I am a lot into history, animals, science and nature. I also love sharing and teaching whatever I know! In Greece I own a small property close to ancient Olympia (the birth place of the Olympic games) in Peloponnese, southwest Greece. My cottage has a front garden with flowers and garden plants, and a backyard with fruit bearing trees. Close to my village there are many natural spots including rivers, forests and waterfalls (Nemouta). I am staying in this cottage when I want to relax and work on my projects, away from the crowded and noisy cities. Company is always welcome to accompany me to my projects, share new experiences and explore the surroundings together.

Learning about the history by visiting the archaeological sites (e.g. ancient Olympia) and the monasteries of the area; learn/practise Greek, learn greek recipes (if my mum is around because i am not very good in this..), interact with the locals and explore Greek nature by visiting together the near by natural parks including waterfalls, forests and rivers.
As part of my family tradition, you will help me and take part in the olive harvest season this December (Dec 23th – Dec 30th). We will go to my farm where you will have the experience of a lifetime either by handpicking olives and placing them directly in a basket or by picking them using a net. Once packed, we will then transport them to the local olive oil press and mill, where you will see the procedure of extraction, the storage, and standardization process of extra virgin olive oil. I would also like to practise my English and my French! Italian and Arabic are also in the list :)

I am offering a private room inside the cottage (+ sheets/blankets) and access to Wi-Fi. In regards to food, I can provide the food put I am not very proud of my cooking skills...
To reach my place you have to come to Pyrgos, which is the closest city to my village. There are daily busses from Athens to Pyrgos. When in Pyrgos, I will pick you up with my car and come to my place. If you want to go around during your free time there is a bus from my village going to Olympia and the city of Pyrgos, but the connection is rare, so if needed I can give you a ride. Around my area there few natural spots, like forests and a river where you can explore them by yourself (walking) or together with my car.
