Some have described Cohousing as the village reimagined.  Beginning in Denmark as Bofællesskab, or living community, the first Danish village sparked a movement defined by specific architectural, social, and eco-friendly features.  It is the fusion of architecture and social policy of support and connection among neigbhors.  Bofællesskab spread worldwide to become Samenhuizen in Belgium, Kollektivhus in Sweden, and “Cohousing” in the UK, US, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.  Not your average village- the blend of specific architecture, social and sustainable characteristics of cohousing proved so successful that today, many cohousing communities have waitlists.

We are an "intentional community".  First and foremost, we choose to know and care about each other as neighbors.

We choose Greece, with its awe inspiring beauty,  relaxed and healthy lifestyle, rich history, wonderful food, warm people, and ancient tradition of village.
