  • Description


    We are two people living in a house in Kakovatos, Peloponnese. Actually we live in our campervans in the garden of the house. We are creating a shop for vanlifers and travellers. We offer a laundryroom, warm shower, drinks and snacks, a freebox to exchange 2ndhand items, an open workshop to repair and build things etc.

    We have several friendly dogs and we are often helping stray dogs in the area with medical treatment, castration and food for which we collect donations in our shop. We always foster some dogs until we find families for them. So if you come here you should be ok with having dogs around. The guest room is dog-free of course. But when you get up you will be greeted by a good number of wet noses and wagging tails.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are both from Germany and our customers are mainly campers from different european countries. We speak German, English and French. People who stay with us will have the opportunity to either hang out in our house/shop and meet people who pass by or grab a bike and explore the area.

    We live in a small village by the sea. The beachfront is huge and very beautiful, there are nice walks and hikes to do in the hills and valleys nearby. When we have time we can go places together, with the car or motorbike, show you around and explore the region. You can use our bicycles to go to the beach or discover the area. There is no public transport here but hitchhiking works quite well.

  • Help


    In the house we are currently building a big kitchen, a bathroom, making all kinds of furniture and so on. We would be happy to host people who are interested in creative crafting and building (especially upcycling) or simple renovation tasks like cleaning up, painting walls, or helping in the laundry room.

    Sometimes we foster straydogs and we also collect donations for castrations and medical treatments. People who have ideas how to collect money for the dogs are welcome to get creative here. Also the daily care for the dogs and puppies takes a lot of time and we always need animal-friendly people who enjoy feeding, walking and training dogs.

    Last but not least we would be happy to host somebody who wants to cook once a day for everybody (vegan) and help us with some chores around the house like watering the plants, cleaning the kitchen, bathroom, the floor, windows and so on.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    At the moment we are looking for people who stay and help for a few days up to 2 weeks, longer stays habe to be discussed individually and personally when you are here.

    We will also discuss individually what you would like to contribute and what we can offer you in exchange, depending on your needs and interests.

    We provide food (at least one cooked meal per day and access to the kitchen to make your own snacks) and drinks, a place to sleep (guestroom or parking spot for vans), shower, laundry. To get around places we would recommend you to get a rented car or be ok with hitchhiking or using a bicycle as there are almost no public busses here and we normally don’t have time to drive you around.

    Can possibly accept pets

    We have dogs. People who come with pets have to take responsibility for their animals and we will have to find solutions for a peaceful coexistence :)
