Welcome to

Greece Cohousing Community

Regrettably, the Greek government just announced that it is increasing the minimum property investment from 250,000 euros to 500,000 euros.

This puts the program beyond reach for most us.

I am now considering Portugal, Mexico, or Ecuador. You are welcome to join me in this new quest.  Since I retire from teaching at the end of 2022, the quest for alternatives to Greece will be all the more intense.

I will miss Greece.  But the world is a big place.  We will simply find someplace else.

What is Cohousing?


"Cohousing" refers to a residential community in which knowing your neighbors is the foremost consideration.  We live in houses that are close to each other, and that exist in in an old and established Cretan village.  A perfect example is the village of Armenoi, about 20 minutes from Chania.  All units will be individually owned.  There may be no land or facility owned in common.  "Greece Cohousing Community" is not a development business; it neither collects nor disburses money.  (We will never ask you for a $300 "explorer" fee.)  Our group acts simply as a means of coordinating the purchasing strategies of the members.  After moving in, the group will meet together for frequent meals and social events, and for language learning.  We are totally democratic; there is no one person calling the shots.  There is a strong emphasis on environmental sensitivity, and to living lightly on the land.  The Greece Cohousing Community is now in the planning phase, and individuals and families are encouraged to join us.  All nationalities are welcome!  Όλοι είναι ευπρόσδεκτοι να συμμετάσχουν στην ομάδα!
