  • Description


    Hello my name is Agni, I am 53 years old Greek woman and live alone with my dog, on a very small island in Greece named Donoussa in the middle of the Aegean Sea. I am an artist , a herbalist and local trail guide. Due to the covit situation my bussness hasn't been going so well so have found an extra job working in the kitchen of a taverna for the tourist summer season. Because of this situation i dont have the time and energy to look after my small garden and walk my dog. My dog's name is Kali she is 15 mounths old half breed boxer still in the trainning stage and full of energy, extremely friendly and strong.She needs to go for 2 long walks per day and to be kept on a srticked trainning program and is in need of company, as i am away from home many hours. the person that will come must have expirience with big and strong dogs. My garden is very small and will be needing little work and time.

    My house is situated 5min walk from the main village of Donoussa but with only one family house as neighbours, with the view of the village, the Agean sea and the islands around us. Not many elecricity light poles in this area, so the sky in the night is amazing and the sunset time magical.

    The house is not big but has all the necessary facilities, elecricity, hot water, washing mashing etc. There is not an extra bedroom but in the living room/kitchen area I have a sofa bed but also there is the possibility to set up a tent in my yard if threre is need of privacy.

    Donoussa has amazing sandy beaches and some of them are nudest friendly. the island is known for it's laid back life style and alot of visitors come here to walk the trails with the amazing views.Also if you are in the mood for night life the few bars we have are great for parties and meeting people.But even if you are a quite person, even in the peack of the season there are places to be in peace. Donoussa is called the emerald of the Cyclades island because of it's natural beauty.Many visitosr fall in love with this island and keep coming back for years.

    Though Kali needs alot of attention still there will be plenty of free time to explore and enjoy the place and by being the local guide I can help you out in that.

    I can offer you your accomadation and if i have time i will cook for you but you are welcome to use the organic vegetables from my garden to cook. People say thet I am fun to be around and that i have young energy, but i am also a very private person.

    With respect,

    Well first of all you will have the oppertunity to live on a beautirful Greek island with the amazing view of the agean sea and learn about the local wild flora and their healing powers from me and the same time have a laid back holiday under the sun and swim in crystal clear water.

    Aslo as I am an ex activist, I believe by being able to give help and solidarity to someone is a benefit by it self.

    As Kali is still in need of trainig and due to the fact that she is half of a boxer, the person that would come should be strong and with experience in dogs of this kind. she needs to be walked at least twice a day normaly we do sun rise and sun set. The sun rise time can be adjusted to a bit later but sunset is her favourite time. the time of the walk has been arranged by the temperature as it can get very hot on Donoussa and also in coordination with a local goat sheperd who is def and affraid of Kali ( this island is more of a cat lovers place).
    After the walk she gets fed and then you will be free to enjoy the island.We have some small house rules as where she sleeps etc but i will tell when you will arrive. Have in mind Kali is not agresive at all, she is just very sociable and wants to play with everyone but not everyone shares the same feelings, which is understandable but unfair for her.
    The garden needs watering every other day and it is less then a half an hour job and some times there will be some extra work in it, but light and easy as it is baced on permacultura caltivation.

    As i have alredy said you will have the choise to sleep either on a comfortable sofa bed in the common living kitchen area ( kali is on the other sofa) or you can set up your tent in my yard in a more private corner. If you don't want to carry your own tent i am able to provide you one. Of course you can use all the house facilities. when i will have time I will cook for you, I combine meditarinian cuisine with Indian and I am a vegeterian but i do cook meat. you will have access to any vegetable and spices from my organic garden and there is plenty of olive oil to cook meals of your pleasure.

    Walking the trails and swimming in the crystal clear waters is one of the main pleasures of the island. Have in mind that it is a very small island of 120 citizens but a favourite place for visitors especialy in August. In the summer season we have a local bus, a van and a taxi if you dont want to walk. also there is a boat taxi that can take you to the beaches.
    There are plenty of restaurants, three bars, but only one bakery, one mini market, a grocery store, a traditional Greek coffe place with a small market inside and no pharmasy so you need to come organized. though if you are in need of any medication we order from the closest bigest island of the area Naxos and they arive the same day, but we do have a doctor. Also there is no bank just one atm cash mechine which runs out of money very often , so bring your cash, though credict bank cards can be used almost in all places on the island. Also there is no patrol station, so if you are coming with your own transportation just fill up your tank!

    If you are a digital nomad and need to work online while living here just have in mind that I have a shared internet connection so some times during high season the conection in my house is slow but there are some quite hours at coffe places where many ohters go to work and the internet wifi connection is fine.
