    Hello everyone
    This is Andreas, Peggy, and our two year old Dimitra, we live in our six-acre farm in harmony enjoying the beauty and the presents of natural life. If you would like to visit our home please READ CAREFULLY THE WHOLE TEXT and ask yourself
    - if you understand what is going on here and
    - if you find all of it attractive to you
    This way you will only spend 10 minutes of your time and not the two weeks of the minimum visit that we accept

    Our house is a Caravan. Around that there are an open living room - kitchen, a geodesic dome toolhouse, a chicken coop, apiary, nursery, kitchen gardens, water harvesting systems, composting heaps, and the land is full of young trees and wild cereal field areas

    The farm is equipped with a 200lt solar water heater for hot water all year long, outdoor composting toilet, solar panels for power autonomy in 12V, bicycle for visits to the nearest village or rides around the area,

    The nearest village (2km) is called Arla. It has a mini market, a bakery, grill house, 3 café restaurants with free wifi, a pharmacy and a tool shop. From this village, there is a bus connection to the major city of Patras once a day. The nearest city with a full market is Kato Achaia (8 km). Even though the farm is relatively close to the sea there is no sea view. However from here, one can see the beautiful mountains of Peloponnese, Erymanthos, Santameri, Mazaraki, and Movri.

    Here, we work on:

    Natural Farming, Permaculture, Natural Building, Chicken Breeding, Apiary, Tree nursing, Eco-Community, Ecology, Autonomy and non-monetary management, Mycology, Upcycling, Music, theatre, dancing, folk art,

    We need people that after reading the above will feel like spending some of their time here in order to interact with us and with the farm’s elements.

    For the moment hosting can be provided during the dry season (summer, half spring and half autumn) in tents. The guests can use the infrastructures and means of the farm (toilet, kitchen, shower, outdoor living room, bicycle, tent area) taking up the responsibility of their personal safety and proper use of them.

    We as administrators of the farm ask for:

    RESPECT for all kinds of life that cohabit in the farm

    Respect for al infrastructures and means and tools that have been made or obtained with a lot of effort and are absolutely vital for our survival here.

    Human interaction away from the logic of transaction (monetary or non-monetary) for us every egg, every drop of honey and every piece of knowledge, experience, infrastructure and means that we will share with you has incalculable value. However, we value incalculably every second that you, our guest will devote through your heart to deal with preserving, upgrading, building supporting and dispersing our farm and its causes. We believe that useful knowledge is like compost. Useless unless you disperse it.

    *****AFTER ONE YEAR IN WORKAWAY It has been proved to us that the BEST HELP we can receive is from people that want to LEARN THROUGH DOING or BE PRODUCTIVE FOR THEIR OWN REASONS BY DOING and the WORST HELP that we desperetaly WANT TO AVOID is from people that want to MAKE IT UP TO US for the hosting that we provide to them.In this case their work has created double or triple the effort and the worries that we would have if we did the task ourselves.
    Also we realized that we can't offer a schedule of 3-5 hours of work per day as we are NOT A COMMERCIAL FARM and we dont have a constant daily workflow. The visitor here will probably be asked to visit the chicken coop three times a day for 5 minutes each visit,feed the cats for another 5 minutes, participate another 20 minutes in preparing a meal or washing vegetables and dishes, collect flowers if it is a flower collecting day, or observe the stars if it is a star observation night, dig the garden if it is a garden preparation day, chill out when we all chill out and many other things that connect with our everyday habbits and schedule. Please don't expect to work 5 hours in the morning and follow your own schedule in the afternoon. If you plan to do that you will probably waste your and our time by coming here*****

    So we are really looking forward to placing YOU in our everyday activities. Be it watering the garden, feeding the chickens, building a dome, cooking, playing music, making a long conversation on how to change the world, we want to work together, interact, teach and learn with you.

    Establishing mutually beneficial relationships (that lead to universally beneficial relationships) is the ultimate cause of all our efforts. We strongly believe that mutually beneficial relationships once established will be proven by far better than the common mutual exploitation relationships that we are familiar with in our modern society.

    Thus we are expecting you, great people, to build together with us the new narrative of mutually beneficial relationships and post it for the next to find and upgrade

    P.S. We cohabit with five cats and a dog that are absolutely friendly with children and other pets. Children and pets with similar behavior are always more than welcome to the farm.

    For the moment hosting can be provided during the dry season (summer, half spring and half autumn) in tents.Mobile homes RVs and Caravans are more than welcome too. The guests can use the infrastructures and means of the farm (toilet, kitchen, shower, outdoor living room, bicycle, tent area) taking up the responsibility of their personal safety and proper use of them. As for food we follow the old Greek moto "where four people can eat, six can eat as well" which means that we will provide portions of our own meals (three a day at least). We are mainly vegetarians but not strictly. Eggs and vegetables are always enough on the farm and we also shop our way to autonomy step by step. You are always welcome to cook something different or extra using up whatever available on the farm, or shop yourselves something from the village.

    The nearest (2km) village to the farm is called Arla. It has a mini market, bakery, grill house, 3 café restaurants with free wifi, a pharmacy and a tool shop. From this village, there is a bus connection to the major city of Patras once a day. The nearest city with a full market is Kato Achaia which is 8km away by road. The beach of Kato Achaia is organized and full of bars and restaurants.

    The International Airport of Araxos is located 30km away from the farm (approx. 40 minutes by car)

    The West Achaia Region where the farm is located is suitable for wine tourism as one can find many wineries that welcome visitors. The region is inhabited continuously for over eight millennia (from 6000 B.C.) a statement that is based upon archaeological findings that one can find in the areas’ museums and monuments such as walls, aqueducts, and cemeteries. The beaches of west Achaia are well known for their peaceful and clean waters.

    Even though the farm is relatively close to the sea (8 km) there is no sea view. However from here, one can see the beautiful mountains of Peloponnese, Erymanthos, Santameri, Mazaraki, and Movri.

    WE DONT MIND HOSTING SMOKERS as long as they smoke outdoors, are extremely careful with fire safety issues, and care for the dispose of their cigarette buds.
