Serenity - Beauty - Peace

The space
These three tiny hand sculpted buildings have been built by our hands, two are sculpted mostly with clay and the triangular one primarily made by wood. Minimal mechanical equipment was used at the building processes. So the space you are going to be using is foul of soul, any interventions were made with care, always respecting the surroundings and in the most sustainable way we could use.

Warm, in the winter, chill in Summer, located in a beautiful location, away from people and obstructions.
It is a single room house. There is an elevated bed that can host two persons, and a rustic chest that can be used as a single bed. The kitchen is tiny but it has all you need and the wood stove is custom made and can be used for cooking and warming up water for showers as well. There is light and charger from a small pv panel and battery but no electricity.
There is a compost toilet and an outdoors summer shower space. In winter you have to warm up water and wash yourself outdoors( like the old times)!
I provide you with plenty of fire wood.
I also provide several foodstuff like olive oil, fruits, rice, pasta, onions, coffee etc.

It is an ongoing project so expect to see under construction rooms, sheds etc.

Other things to note
If you have interest in off-grid living, true sustainability, plants, natural building and generally way of natural living.. then this is your place

I am passionate with nature, anything authentic and sustainable, i love animals and the planet, therefore i am eating consciously. I have strong beliefs. I enjoy summer night (under a tree) philosophical conversations and i love to meet people who have something to share. I grew up in a town but 7 years ago I moved to Amargeti to live simpler and more fulfilling. I share my space with my doughter dog Dhaera and -from time to time with -different people from all over the world. We are in the process of adapting to a very sustainable and self sufficient environment but the hardest part is to survive that way in a capitalistic system like the one we live. We believe that your support will help us achieve our goal and will most probably grow a seed of enthusiasm and care about the environment and simplicity into your heart.. My goal is to have a positive impact on my surroundings and i strongly believe that my way of living will lead me to this; i am dreaming of an eco-community where sharing, honesty, trust, cooperation and a simple way of living will flourish and make everyone feeling joy and fulfillment through real development! I don't have a standard job or a set up schedule. I try to make some money from the activities i like doing! I practice natural building, carpentry, gardening, martial arts and any other job that don't last long enough to feel enchaining. I can change your mind in many aspects, i am radical and i always look for the root of the problem..
