We have four holiday villas in an olive grove and orchard and also four little apartments in the beautiful village of Koroni. We are looking for one or two helpers - preferably a couple but one person or two individuals prepared to share accommodation would also be fine to help us in the end of March for house sitting and looking after our cats while we take a short break. There are also some general spring garden and house maintenance tasks so you don't get bored!.

We need a minimum stay of a week to cover opur break but longer is great so we can get to know each other a bit and you have time to explore the area.
In exchange for four days work (24 hours) per week we will provide accommodation in the very comfortable holiday villas on the site. On work days we also provide a good lunch with some of our own wine! Otherwise it is self catering although you can have anything you want from the garden. You can choose to work four days per week or work eight days and stay on for the equivalent number of free days/ weeks as a holiday when the work is finished. We are pretty flexible.
Please let us know if you have any other skills e.g. photography, computing, graphic design, electrician, painter etc, as this could also be of interest to us.
There may also be the possibility of paid work on the other days, either with us or with our neighbours who are also harvesting olives at this time.
We are located in a beautiful part of the Peloponese, 20 minutes walk from the nearest supermarket and town and ten minutes from a beautiful sandy beach. Many interesting excursions can be made from the site.
