    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Our place is located on the ancient site of Myndos. Archaeological ruins, ancient hiking paths, riverbeds full of history, etc. Additionally, we are prolific learners and love to share what we know. We can provide information about the history of the region, the local delicacies, etc.

    Moreover, this is a touristic area, so if you like to party, you will find one that suits your taste (be it house parties or seaside clubs, live music, etc.) any day.

  • Help


    We need help with our garden (both ornamental and vegetables), maintaining the house while we work on our projects. Additionally we welcome woodworkers (amateur and experienced) and ceramic/pottery artists for our professional projects. We are building a beehive kiln, a rocket mass heater, a natural-filter pool. We also have a tangerine/orange/citrus orchard that needs maintenance.

    Moreover, we are engaged in music, electronics/robotics projects on the side, so any help there is also appreciated.

    Anyone who can teach us 3d modeling is also welcome.
