We are olive farmers in south Crete. Our small family is me, Catia from Switzerland, and my husband Dimitris from Crete. During the summer we rent four rooms in our house for guests from all over the world. In the wintertime we are working with the olives.

We need some help for the picking of the olives and for cultivating the trees, during the months of November, December and January. It is really hard work. You need to be in very good physical condition and you should love to be outside in the nature. We are highly depending on the weather conditions, because we can harvest only on sunny days. This means that your free days are irregular and will sometimes be on rainy days. There can be also some small tasks for the maintenance of our garden, the feeding of our animals and the household. But mainly we are looking for someone, who supports us with the olives.
You will have your own room in our house with heater and a shared bathroom.
In your off-time you can go to see and cuddle the goats, sheep, rabbits and poultry. Pick some oranges and mandarins directly from our fruit trees, fresh eggs from the stable and vegetables from our garden. Take our dog Hermes for a walk through the olive groves around our village.
We also recommend you a hiking tour in the Asterousia mountains that you can see from our balcony. Near our home there are four famous archaeological sides, that you can visit. Explore the beautiful beaches of south Crete for example Matala (distance from our house: 30 Minutes by car) and enjoy winter swimming or make a tour in the wonderful Messara valley with our bicycle.
If you have enough of the quiet village life you can go to the city of Heraklion. There is no bus connection from our village to Heraklion. But if you want to use public transport, we can bring you to Agii Deka with our car and there are hourly bus connections to Heraklion or Mires.
