  • Description


    As, i'm sure, so many among us we are exploring better ways of living..A new & exiting experience for us and hopefully for you as well! Me(dutch) & a Greek/Austrian couple are renting a 20.000 sqm. plot of land with ca. 150 olive trees & and a house. We fixed up the house so friends & guests can come and stay start the vegetable garden, experiment with art/eco-farming/host workshops, build a greenhouse, make music etc. There is no commercial aspect to this project but we do need to find a way to able to sustain our ongoing efforts & way of life and therefor creating a sense of purpose for ourselves and others in times to come. Start small.. For now we have some chickens that provide fresh eggs, the bees that give us raw honey and the trees provide olive oil. Hopefully soon the animal kingdom will be further represented by adopting some donkey or horse in need of a home. There is not a clear plan yet but having enough space to be able to explore and research new ideas is something worth nurturing. The land is located on the foothills of a mountain overlooking the valley & the blue Aegean(1.5 km) below. The cute house has 2 bedrooms, a fireplace, large living room & bathroom with bath. Bicycles will be available to quickly descent to the village and beaches below..the uphill return is a bit more time consuming ;-).

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    I think it goes without saying that spending time together with complete strangers from different cultures is one of the most interesting things there is. Its inescapable that we'll learn from eachother in many different ways.. sharing ideas with regards to work, expanding each others outlook on life, respecting & celebrating each others differences can only lead to valuable moments that benefit all. Since we don't have a very clear vision yet, we welcome input and this hopefully provides you with opportunities that enable you to try out some of your own ideas.

  • Aide


    So we would like some support with several -mainly - outdoor chores such as; starting the vegetable gardens, some painting, building a wall from natural rocks, finishing a tree-house, prepare future animal habitats,put up some fences around the property, tree planting, olive tree trimming, etc. Some experience with handling some tools, or some basic knowledge with regards to building things with wood etc.would be useful. Since we won't be around all the time, some Independence is valued when it comes to cooking for yourselves at days we are engaged elsewhere.

    The cute house has 2 bedrooms with each 2 separate beds, a fireplace, large living room, open kitchen with oven & spacious bathroom with bath. cooking & eating together will be my preference, however there will be days you cook for yourselves at times we are tied up elsewhere. Naturally all food ingredients will all be provided by us. Fresh eggs, fresh oregano & virgin olive oil are always available and the sooner we plant vegetables, the quicker we will have a steady produce of organic ingredients for daily consumption. Bicycles will be available to quickly descent to the village and beaches below..the uphill return is a bit more time consuming ;-). We, the hosts, are not staying at the house but live a few km's away so you will have your privacy as well. We are working to get internet up and running but for some time you'll have to depend on your mobile internet.
