  • 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 quite recently started to manage it.
    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 become targets now and that is because of my Workaway Legends that keep setting up a brick on the wall steadily and with pace, step by step!
    Some of the targets are a tree house, natural ponds and other gardening and landscape innovations!
    I also have a pigeon tower that I want to convert into a living space, and other renovations around the house and hotel but also the Hotel's management and well being!
    I would really appreciate the help of builders, architects, visionaries, gardeners, artists, magicians or anyone crazy enough to participate to such a project!
