  • Description

    Description

    I am cool most of the time, Living in a huge house with fellow workawayers since July 2016 and we constantly form a small community!
    The house was built by my great grand father and it has been a landmark of the town for 100 years!

    The incomes that support us are from the hotel, one of the few of the town, just some steps away from home and I manage it since 2014 while has been constantly upgrading it with the help of the volunteers.

    Before establishing here, I was living in Athens where I grew up but also studied for 6 years in London. My degree is Msc Structural Engineering.

    I am practicing Falun Gong - an ancient Chinese cultivation practice. People who are interested come to the hotel and learn the exercises and generally I am happy to assist everyone in learning how to practice it.

    There are Visions for my house and its huge gardens that have been accomplishing steadily and nice because of my Workaway Legends that keep setting up a brick on the wall, step by step!
    Some of the next targets are a tree house, natural ponds and other advanced gardening and landscape innovations including the maintenance of our 150 food forest trees according to permaculture ways.
    We also have a remarkable pigeon tower that is about to be convertEd into a living space, and other cool natural building projects to work with comb, wood and rocks.
    Of course cleaning enthusiasts are always welcome since the enormous space is preferable to be kept tidy and clean:)
    I would really appreciate the help of builders, architects, visionaries, gardeners, artists, magicians or anyone with a kind heart that is happy to be part of a home.

    Private bedroom at my home and maybe soon enough tree-house or pigeon tower apartment! The Villa has significantly improved from our efforts to renovate it and that attempts of improving never stop so I am sure you will find a cosy and comfort stay. Most of the times we host more than 10 volunteers so sharing a room with another is usual and mostly always a success!
