The Peli Deli Kitchen offers a laid back alternative to our busy club restaurants where our guests can enjoy simple food, done well, whilst enjoying views of the Ionian Sea. Open daily, our deli team prepare a variety of dishes from Ottolenghi-style salads to homemade quiches, open sandwiches to charcuterie boards and delicious pizza and pasta, all alongside daily specials that take advantage of fresh, local produce.

We are looking for highly motivated individuals to take responsibility for our shopping and delivery services. With our refrigerated delivery van for transportation, our Shopkeepers, under the guidance of our Deli Manager, are responsible for ordering and processing all shopping requests. This includes picking, packing and delivering shopping to our guests villas, assisting with any special requests and unpacking shopping into the villa kitchens before guest arrival.

The Peli Deli stocks a variety of fresh fruits, vegetables and homemade produce, as well as a number of groceries and essentials and operates much like your local supermarket delivery service. Our guests have the option to pre-order shopping before their arrival and so each week our Shopkeepers carefully pick and pack shopping lists and stock guest villas with care and attention to provide the perfect welcome to a home-away-from-home.

In addition to shopping services the Shopkeepers are also responsible for our Petit Peligoni service; a range of baby and toddler essential equipment that can be rented for the week. Other responsibilities include delivering breakfast hampers and water to villas in the mornings and putting together top-up shopping orders throughout the week.

This role requires a large amount of driving so our Shopkeepers must be safe, confident drivers, with experience driving in mainland Europe on irregular and often uneven road surfaces. This is a challenging role for those who have a keen eye for detail, like to work as part of a small team and enjoy a healthy split of both back of house and front of house responsibilities.
