Hello! Geia Sas!
We are Chenny and Steven, a Dutch-Belgium couple living off the land and trying to be as much self-sustainable on our off the grid permaculture farm. We are located at 750m high in the northern Peloponnese just outside the village of Seliana. We live in our natural build tiny house. All our food is organic, all of the vegetables we are eating are home grown or wild picked.
After more than 7 years of intense labor to set up a basic infrastructure here, we feel the wish to share the knowledge that we’ve gained. Let’s be honest, it will be a win-win situation. We can definitely use more hands to lift our project to the next level, but whilst staying here, you will learn a lot from it too and experience has taught us that every visitor brings specific knowledge and dynamics!
This summer we hope to transform our homestead in a retreat center for people seeking a quiet place to find back their balance. From next year we will open our doors. This summer will be filled up with works regarding finishing our natural build covered outside area (carpentry, cobbing, plastering, earth floor), building an outhouse for guests (bathroom, compost toilet) and new solar system.
During your stay normal life at our homestead will be ongoing, daily maintenance of water/irrigation, animal care,… but to get you to know all the different aspects of this life we will integrate natural building projects, tending vegetable gardens, soil and water management and garden pattern design, making preserves for winter and home pharmacy. To cover every aspect and to get a full understanding of the rhythm of the farm one would actually have to stay for at least a year. To get a basic understanding of our approach towards natural living, we feel a minimum stay would be at least for 1 month.

You can really experience how to live off the land. We are both permaculture certificated and by now with a lot of gardening and natural building experience. Also, you get what you give! You will have many opportunities for learning natural living skills. Every day is different!
We stimulate everybody to get really a part of the farm. We cook and share meals together, you will be actively integrated in taking care of our animals (chickens, pigs, cats and dog). We will work together in the garden, harvest, preserve food, teach about soil, landscape design, herbal medicine and herbal cosmetics. Days start after breakfast, around 8.30. We are looking in particular for people willing to stay long term, carpenter and cooking skills are really welcome, but most of all people that are looking for a life like ours and looking for an introduction or an example.
You can stay at our place in a tent. We will provide for a tent and bedding. You can camp nearby the communal spaces, but also you can set up your tent more private in the woods should you wish.
There is an outdoor shower and a small swimming pool.
Food is prepared on rotational base in the communal kitchen. There is a bathroom with solar hot water. There is an amazing beautiful pit toilet with a stunning view.
After a long term stay with us we hope to have inspired you to start or join a project similar to ours, or maybe even join ours. We hope you will leave us with enough knowledge, experience and confidence to take on the next step towards self-sufficiency.
