  • Description


    Welcome to our farm paliomilos where we are two couples and a strong single woman (;p) who live together: Franzi and Giorgos (from Germany and Greece), Iris and Jeroen (from the Netherlands) and Sani (from Greece). Our main activity is olive cultivation but we also have animals (sheep, chickens and ducks) and our goal is to become more diverse by planting other kinds of tree.
    A big disaster occurred here August 2021, the whole pine forest right next to our house burnt down together with a third of our olive grove and partly the house. We rebuilt it but there is still a lot of construction work to be done.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    You could learn about cooking and eating local and homemade products.
    Some things about olive farming, general animal and tree care and how permaculture might give a different perspective to the common practices.
    Also, something is constantly being build and you (and us) can benefit from helping out.

  • Aide


    From May and on the main tasks to help with would be gardening (the garden is not commercial, but has a significant size as we also produce the veggies needed for preserves for the winter), construction (shading constractions) and community cooking (with lovely stuff from the garden).
    In September we start olive picking. In that case we will need support mainly on everyday things which are gardening, veg picking, winter preserves, cooking, cleaning to keep up with the rhythm. Your contribution to those missions will be highly appreciated :)

    From April to October, accomodation is in tents in the olive orchard.

    Unfortunately, we cannot offer accomodation during winter time except if you have practiced Wim Hof's method and chose to live in a tent. Or you have a campervan with heating :)

    There s plenty of things to do around here. The sea is just 30 minute walk away, a beautiful river is 200m away where you can swim in the summer. I climb at place near by, so ones that want to join on a day off are very welcome. You can hike or cycle to the surrounding mountain peaks.
    There is a bus that comes to (and leaves from ) the village of Rovies from Athens 3 times a day. But I ll send you more info if this is needed later on.

    Few things that is good to know before you come here. this is not to scare you away but to have a better understanding in case you want to stay longer.
    There are always things to do and in general some of us are very busy, even though having a good time is also part of keeping busy. You are expected to be an active member of a communal living and not just a visitor, if you look for a place to work a few hours and then have a complete disconnected life then this is not the place for you. There is no expert here to teach anything and we all learn together experimenting with various things, gardens, food preservation, natural construction. We live simple, there is no fixed internet in the house (but ιn the village 2km away, or using phones), we use a compost toilet with a bidet. In general self initiative, respect to the group and responsibility are quite important for a smooth cohabitation.
