Before traveling


10 Reasons why not to leave your comfort zone and travel to visit us in the south of Greece to be our guest at our renovated stone house in Methana…. 


 1. It is the end of the world: after the flight, you have to drive 3 hours from Athens on super curvy roads, or take a train to Piraeus, from there a boat, then a taxi. 


 2. In the village, there are no shops, bars, public transportation, doctors, grocery stores - if you are looking for a party or shopping paradise, it’s the wrong place. We are a 5 minutes drive from Methana town, where we get our necessities. 


 3. We live in rural Greece, where there are harmless lizards, spiders, ants and of course mosquitoes. We have screens on the main windows and around the beds. 


 4. Our house is beautiful and comfortable to our standards, but it’s not a five star hotel. There are two shared bathrooms, and if someone uses up all the hot water you have to wait till the boiler heats up. 


 5. The neighbors are friends to us, and whoever might mow grass, water olive trees, mix cement, walk sheeps, etc., aren't distractions, but life in the village, where you are welcomed as a guest.​


6. We love children, but we don't recommend traveling with them - the village is often boring for kids, and the wine is too delicious for you to have your child around.​


7. We are 100% vegans, we serve and offer only plant based food. You will always have the opportunity to eat what you choose in your free time, or accept the challenge and try veganism for 5 days. 


8. We ​are driving our beloved, worn-out 20 year old car - it’s functional and safe, but certainly not a luxury vehicle - but who’s judging a book by its cover? 


9. We are no tour guides, no drivers, no chefs, no hoteliers. We are journalists and actors, sharing our way of living, offering vegan food, and sustainable living retreats with creative workshops. 

10. We believe in equality of humans, regardless of race, religion, or identity. If you think anyone should be discriminated or looked down on based on any of these, this is not your scene
