  • Description

    Description

    My name is Spiros ,my wife's name is Nikoletta our 6 year old son is Stergios and our little baby.
    About 10 years ago Nikoletta and I decided to quit our jobs and go live something new that fits us more. I was an electrician and Nikoletta was a social worker earning good money. We decided we could not continue to live in the city any more. We want to be free and happy, and create our own biological products. We love nature, we live respectfully within her. Now we have a big beautiful farm with many animals, vegetables and fruit trees, which allow us to be around 80% self-sufficient. All of this requires a lot of work, and we need some help. This is not a hobby for us, it is a way of life. All our knowledge and technical expertise we have acquired, we would love to share with people around the world who are thirsty for a different kind of life, along with our daily life and products. Our hospitality - Filoxenia in Greek - is freely offered to anyone willing to respectfully visit our farm. Filoxenia is expression that is significant in Greece, and we serve it. At our farm we organize and participate in musical, theatrical, environmental events as well as technical seminars. Our English is limited, but we would like to improve, and beyond this we would love to learn and exchange knowledge and our culture with any friend and citizen of the world that would like to come here with their own language, traditions, knowledge and culture.
