  • Description


    Hello people of the world ,
    I am Manousos, I guess the rest details will be told face by face :) So we live in the south of Crete in Chania in an isolated village Anopoli(for you who want to get away from civilization ) , we run a family taverna and a few rooms and the last two years i'm trying to turn the whole idea to a more organic direction for the quality of the food we are providing but also for our self-sustainability and mainly for the experience of creating . We have some olive trees that need their attention as well. As for myself i have built my own wooden off the grid small house which i want to evolve into a small paradise.
    So what my region has to offer is immediate touch with the beutifull and wild nature of south Crete .The famous but unexplored White Mountains are only a glimpse away and always in our sight. Many hiking choices for every kind of hiker and as a guide myself we can explore the whole place around, maybe on our days off the whole Crete, hell if we get along we can explore the whole world. Ok. Many different, isolated and calm beaches are only 20 minutes away or a few km of path hiking, as we are on a village at 650m of height .
    The graphic and alive city of Chania is about 1h20m away and if you need there is every day a bus going but a member of the family is going there almost every other day so it won't be a problem reaching.
    In addition my mother, aunt and of course the favorite grandmother are lovers of the cretan cousine so trying pretty much everything we can offer is another attraction that makes the place exceptional .
    Look, in my few 21 years of life i feel i haven't seen not even a small part of what my region and the island has to offer so i can't include everything cause i do not know them. If you people decide to come we will find out together

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    Get in real touch with nature and experience her giving us abudantly what she has to offer. Isolate yourself from the city and clean your mind with clear air and physical exercise. Of course i would be open for a language exchange with pretty much every language that exists or existed. Try the local food and learn how to create it . Learn the cretan culture by observing the locals and visiting the traditional festivals that happen around. Provide us ofcourse with a breath of different air and new mindset

    So first are the olive trees which need pruning and taking care off in general . If you think you can climb a tree safely and cut down a few branches there's not much else to it .
    Then we will beggin the botanic garden which will be just a few hundrend square meters of land filled with many rare and healing herbs that our climate is perfect for.
    Plant a few trees to enjoy their delicious fruits the years that come.
    Continue and expand the vegetable garden and start almost everything from seed (an amazing procedure seeing the little piece of DNA sprouting growing and later on eating what the land offers with just a bit of water)
    A small part of the day feeding sheeps and chickens if we have them by the time you're here :)
    If the time allows add some necessary details to the log house in the olive tree forest in harmony with the surrounding, utilizing ideas of yourself as well
