  • Description

    Description

    Hello everybody!
    We're a Greek-Italian couple that after living around Europe for several years, decided to move back to the South, close to the warm breeze of the dear Mediterranean sea. Within the year 2021, we aim to put the basis of an ecological family farm where we want to settle down and live in simplicity. We are located in Elaiochoria, Halkidiki (50 km South of Thessaloniki).
    Check below the details!

    IMPORTANT: Since the work required from now on is quite specific, we prefer to host people who are specifically interested in natural construction.


    We are building a 117m² with rather natural materials & techniques. The house will be built mostly with the light straw clay technique. Here you may find, briefly, some phases of the construction given on a non-strict schedule:

    - September - November 2020: installing the worksite / excavation / foundations, perimeter and land drains
    - December 2020 - January - February 2021: timber frame and roofing
    - March - April 2021: earthen floor / adobe bricks (bathroom walls building) / clay sieving / external chimney
    - May- June 2021: walls filling with straw and clay
    - July 2021: plastering and masonry stove preparations/ hut building/ plumbing/ electricity installation
    - August - September 2021 : plastering with cob outside and inside/ external chimney walls (wattle and daub technique)

    ----------------------------------------------

    - October 2021: final plastering outside/ plastering inside / windows installation

    Beware: It is a repetitive work, which can be tiring, it includes lifting different weights (cob mix, buckets...) and climbing ladders and scaffolds up and down. It is also fun and definitely a crucial part for the construction process.


    - November 2021 : internal walls (wattle and daub technique) / masonry stove building/ solar panels installation
    - December 2021: final earthen floor/ stone drywall on the north of the house

    ------------------------------------------------

    FARMING

    Beside our worksite, we planted quite a lot of trees and a small vegetables garden on our land, we try to grow them following the permaculture idea.
    We also work and and help maintaining the olive fields of Yiannis' family (not permaculture based), from March until November lots of different works needs to get done there.
    (Olives collection: from September to November)

  • Hébergement

    Hébergement

    You can sleep on our field (plant your tent - we can offer our tent as well if you prefer - or park your motor-home), where our worksite is.
    We are currently living in a small family house in the nearby village (10 minutes walking distance) where family members come over regularly.

    There is running water in the field, a home made basic shower (the water is stored in a black tank that heats up the water during the day) and a compost toilet.
    There is no electricity, but you can charge your batteries at the house.
    Wi-fi internet is available at the house.

    We're going to share meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner) and the food is going to be homemade and mostly vegetarian.

    Vanessa works from home (from 10am until 7pm, Monday to Friday, more or less) so it is not possible to host digital nomads.

    We have a dog, always staying at the field/ worksite, she's very friendly, she's most of the time unleashed, she loves company. We also have 2+ (up to 7, depending on the day) cats roaming around the house in the village, where we are sleeping.

    There are direct busses (KTEL Halkidikis) from the village to the first peninsula of Halkidiki (to Kallithea) and to villages around (N. Moudania, Kallikrateia...).

    You can enjoy the simple country side around the small village of Elaiochoria, swim in the sea (around 10km away), explore the bushy hill behind the village, visit the Petralona cave, visit Holomontas mountain (~50km) , on the weekend you could go to the legendary Mount Olympus (150km away) or head East to the heart of the Halkidiki region (Sithonia, about 70km away).
    Thessaloniki is about 50 km away from the village, you can reach it by bus.
