Hello future helper!
About the guesthouse:
We are a family of 5+1 members (and a baby!) living in North-Evia close to the village Rovies. We own a guesthouse of 8 rooms (studio type), which we rent during the summer and we live there and host friends in the wintertime. We work mostly with agriculture (olive trees and garbage gardens) and sometimes with fishing .
We try to gain everything we need of food on our own and biological. So we eat fish when we go fishing, we eat the vegetables that each season can grow in our gardens and the fruits of our trees. We also produce olive oil and wine which is organic and healthy.
During the Spring we prepare the guesthouse for the summer season, which means planting and taking care of the trees and the garden, painting, decorating the rooms, taking photos etc..
So, deepended on the season,there are different kinds of work to be done, but always work "from us to us" and not for any "boss"..
In the summer the guesthouse is full with tourists so we don't have free rooms for the helpers. But there is a camping area really next on the beach where we can give you a tent for free and enjoy your summer holidays there.
In the summer we will need some help mainly in the mornings. Easy tasks like taking care of the garden and cleaning the yard. We are open to talk with you about the tasks you are good at and you enjoy doing!
All of this work is a fun to do but it is easier and more enjoyable with more people helping us and sharing ideas. We would like to spend time with creative persons positive and open minded. Our guests never feel like working. We want them to enjoy their time, they choose how much they want to work and feel like collaborating with us and enjoy our time together.
Let me now introduce myself :
- My name is Giorgos. It's 3 years that i've finished studies and after some travels in Europe I decided to come back to my homeland to work on my parents' guesthouse. I am a musician and I enjoy all kinds of art, I am a nature lover, I love creating things with my hands and creating nice moments with beautiful people!
You will more likely contact me because I am the fluent english speaker in the family.
The reason I'm back here in the countryside and the reason I 'm on helpx: "During my studies i participated in a "self-managed" cafe where we the students used to gather, talk about political and community issues, take actions, organise events like parties, festivals, taking care of stray dogs etc.. There I saw how new ideas can be in action, how people can live in peace and direct democracy. After this period I can't accept working for any boss, being a part of the chain in a system that gives services and gets money. Instead I prefer to collaborate, to produce, to create and enjoy the goods of the earth with my friends. My goal is to achieve puting my ideology in the guesthouse and change the idea of tourism into 'ethical tourism'."
