  • Description


    Hello my name is Agni, I am in my mid 50's Greek woman and live alone with my dog, on a very small island in Greece named Donoussa in the middle of the Aegean Sea. I am a natural craft artist , a herbalist and local trail guide.
    I am in need of help with heavy duty work in the field and some maintenance work in the house. so I am looking for someone with experience.
    Also very important to be comfortable and experienced with large and active dog , as Kali is part of the family.

    My house is situated 5min walk from the main village of Donoussa. With no neighbours during winter and amazing views of the Aegean sea with small islands around and the view of the main village.Not many electricity light poles in this area, so the sky in the night is amazing and the sunset time magical.

    The house is quite big with two bedrooms,a big living room,one bathroom and small kitchen. But has no inner doors yet as the owner did not manage to finish it. But privacy is possible due to the design of the house. Also has big veranda full of sunshine.

    Donoussa has amazing sandy beaches and some of them are nudest friendly. the island is known for it's laid back life style and a lot of visitors come here to walk the trails with the amazing views.Also if you are in the mood for night life the few bars we have are great for parties and meeting people.
    Donoussa is called the emerald of the Cyclades island because of it's natural beauty.Many visitors fall in love with this island and keep coming back for years.
    Though during the winter is a completely different story. Only one mini market is open,one bar and on the weekends one restaurant. Perfect place for loners.

    You will have your own bedroom and free use of the kitchen of course and help yourself to vegetables from the garden. When I will have time I will also cook for you but in hi season it's bit difficult.
    People say thet I am fun to be around and that i have young energy, but i am also a very private person.

    With respect,

    Well first of all you will have the oppertunity to live on a beautirful Greek island with the amazing view of the agean sea and learn about the local wild flora and their healing powers from me and the same time have a laid back holiday under the sun and swim in crystal clear water.

    Aslo as I am an ex activist, I believe by being able to give help and solidarity to someone is a benefit by it self.

    Well there is plenty of help I need to be done as I am starting from scratch again.
    Preparing a vegetable garden, a herbal garden, preparing the field to cultivate potatoes and onions, a bit of architecture landscaping and preparing Kali's outdoor house and leisure area.
    There will be a plan and well organized and no rush in doing everything.
    Also I will need a bit of assistance in Kali's walk's as she is still under strict training and in the afternoons i teach art and craft to the locals so I don't have the time she needs everyday.
    But we will plan everything together and work together.
    Very important that the candidate has experience and able to do hard work (like digging) and knowledge of using agricultural tools.

    Walking the trails and swimming in the crystal clear waters is one of the main pleasures of the island when the weather is fine. The temperature might not go under 10 degrees, but it can get very windy and it's hard to enjoy nature at that time. Have in mind that it is a very small island of 120 citizens but a favourite place for visitors especially in August. In the summer season we have a local bus, a van and a taxi if you don't want to walk. also there is a boat taxi that can take you to the beaches. But during winter none of this functions.
    As I have mentioned only one bar is open during winter but has good internet access. Only one bakery, one mini market, no pharmacy so you need to come organized. though if you are in need of any medication we order from the closest biggest island of the area Naxos and they arrive the same day, but we do have a doctor. Also there is no bank just one atm cash machine which runs out of money very often , so bring your cash, though credit bank cards can be used almost in all places on the island. Also there is no patrol station, so if you are coming with your own transportation just fill up your tank!
