Working Rhythm: 

There are 3 different shifts and all the staff follows them and turn as the shifts rotates. 

Every time you go back to work you experience a shift similar as follows : 

  • starting in the morning and finishing in the early afternoon, 
  • second day you start working in the late morning and you finish working at the end of the day 
  • and the last day, you start working in the late afternoon and you finish in the evening.

This is an example of the way the shifts works. Of course, flexibility is required as you are working in an 
industry of service and flexibility remains the keystone.

  • You are a dedicated, skilled and meticulous former stewardess/ housekeeper 
  • We are looking for someone who is passionate about service and likes to work in private villas. Previous experience as a housekeeper or as a governess is MANDATORY.
