Who are we?
We are Kristóf & Nimi, married couple originally from Budapest & Tel Aviv. We are both human, animal rights, and ecological living activists, journalists for several international magazines, we run a few plant based food businesses, we are published book writers, social media experts, public speakers and actors. In 2019 spring we decided to make a change in our lives, we left the big cities, our families and friends, we packed ourselves and our stuff, we got two small studio apartments in a very tiny village by the sea on a small peninsula called Methana, and we establish the new Greek, but mostly simple life.
Where are we, and what do we offer?
There are about 150 people living in Methana, and in our village Agios Giorgios regularly there are about 20. Methana cannot be called as typical tourist destination, although the local people, and nature has so much to show and give. That is why we are offering “get away” trip workshops to adventurous people, who are not afraid being far from souvenir shops and Starbucks, and are ready to experience a unique way of seeing the life in the village, by the sea, the mountains around, the volcano, hot springs and caves, to visit our neighboring islands, Poros, Aegina & Agistri, meet local farmers, olive oil and wine makers, taste the local pastries, pies and breads, and of course eat at the bests tavernas around.
