  • Description


    Our names Stella and Giorgis. We ourselves love to stay at home, since the environment around it is ideal for us and because we love to spend time with our animals and arts. We live in a house on the edge of a small village. Between the house and the forest there is only our horse's pasture, and our gardens for flowers, herbs and vegetables. We are beekeepers as well as woodworkers. We manufacture wooden items in hand, make pyrographs, produce various delicacies and more. We craft something all the time, but we like the good evening companionship and sharing our tsipouro, wine and delicacies. We chose a quiet and creative life in nature, but we love to meet people. We some times have to travel for 3 - 5 days to participate in exhibitions.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Thrace is a wonderful place, with friendly people, natural beauty and of great archaeological interest. We live in a quiet village, 7 km away from the sea, next to a forest.

  • Help


    We have to make short trips sometimes during the year for business reasons. We love to meet people. We also have a pony, a dog and two cats that need regular care and little companionship when we are away. Our helpers should love animals, be familiar with them, and have some experience on horse-keeping. When we are here, we woud like some help in the garden or/and English language practice.
