Villa Caretaker Couple SUMMER

  • Job Location

    Island of Lefkada, Ionian

  • Start date

    Beginning of May

  • Duration

    End October

  • Job Benefits

    An apartment to yourselves, all services paid for, a jeep, a fuel allowance, return flights to the UK, health insurance, a competitive salary and a day off a week.


A UK couple are sought by the owner of 5 luxury villas, situated in the Ionian, at 250m on a mountainside in the SW of the unspoiled, green island of Lefkada. The job involves meticulous daily villa and pool cleaning, plus welcoming guests in the owner's absence.

The villas are above Vasiliki, well known for its sailing and windsurfing, and where several UK watersports hotels provide a good local social scene. They're also only 10 minutes' drive from the remote sandy west coast beaches, for which the island is well-known.

Vasiliki is a quiet large village / small town, not a clubbing resort. Nidri is a 20 mins drive and Lefkas, the main town, only 40 mins. Lefkada has many enjoyable coastal and inland mountain roads and off-road tracks to explore. This will appeal to a couple who love the outdoors, beautiful scenery, life on the water and certainly the beaches.

You must both have full driving licenses, have been in a relationship for at least 2-3 years and be available from early April to end-October 2018.

You will preferably be well-versed in the culture of ski chalet work, as a seasoned chalet host couple, although the owner is fully prepared to consider couples from other areas of the leisure industry who have solid housekeeping experience. What is wanted from both of you, is a naturally calm and cheerful temperament, honesty, excellent communication skills, a ready sense of humour, a mature sense of responsibility, a keen eye, attention to detail, the ability to organize your work to a schedule and very good people skills.

You need to set very high standards for yourselves and realistically, both enjoy cleaning. You will be the face of Urania Villas day to day and must respect the trust being placed in you. In each 14 day period, the owner divides her time between Lefkada and Athens, but will liaise with you and guests daily when in Athens.

It's important to note that in recent years, the villas have become very busy with upmarket yoga retreats often of 12-18 people each, in 3-4 villas. This period can be more demanding on the staff, who must therefore have a flexible, realistic and positive attitude, be proactive, keep in close communication, think on their feet and help to find solutions when difficulties arise. Staff are supported by Greek locals on busy changeovers.


Over the course of 2 weeks before the season starts, the owner will personally train you in each aspect of the job and exactly what is expected of you, so that you are fully confident of carrying out everything in the manner expected day to day.


Please write in the first instance with CV (incl photo) and a covering letter which addresses the above requirements. You'll need a Skype address to enable an initial discussion and subsequent interviews to be carried out.
