Help in our ecological village for at least 2 months on the beautiful island of Andros, Greece

  • Marker details
  • DescriptionHello my name is Aphroditi, I am half greek, half Swiss and I live on the beautiful island Andros. It's only two hours with the ferry boat from Athens. We have here an ecological village with 12 houses, many backpackers but also other tourists spend their holidays here.

    We expect a respectful approach and a degree of tolerance towards our tourist village. Furthermore, we expect reliability, honesty and openness. We need people who like physical hard work like cleaning and painting. You have to stay for at least 2 weeks.
    Every day we have many things to do, from cleaning the houses to painting tables up to painting whole houses. We have a really big garden with olive trees, orange trees, fig trees, lemon trees, apricot trees, grapes and many herbs, someone has to earn them but my mother and me can't do all this things, like cleaning, have a look at the garden, fix things. So we need help and we are really interested in meeting people from all around the world.

  • Additional info
  • You will live in an old cycladic village with a beautiful foot path (2km away from the sea) and a beautiful view all over the aegean sea. You will see how an ecological village works and your work will be in a quiet place surrounded from pure nature under the mediterranean sun. The island is really big (it's the second biggest island of cyclades) and you will find time to discover it. We have many food path where you can find little paradises with waterfalls and old water mills. When you want to find a harmonic place to discover a new side of yourself then Andros will be the right place to do that. We will ask for help wich isn't difficult to do, like painting a table or helping us out with the garden.
