Dear friends,

It is winter and time flow slowly.

Stefanos chops down  burned pine trees, is  building  a new henhouse, repairs the damaged storage areas, runs to meetings and consultations.

Here he represents the Agricultural Cooperative of Rovies at  1: 37: 17 speaking Greek.

And here you can hear him in English phrasing his opinion.

I, on the other hand, am fighting against bureaucracy to get licenses to rebuild,

I am weaving to relax,

and… closing the childhood period of my life, taking the place of the adult now that both my parents passed away, just 7 months apart from each other.

 We had snow for a few days  and the landscape changed giving us opportunities for nice pictures.


Snow came and went and now on our walks we see blooming flowers. We hear redheads and blackbirds. Above our head fly the two hawks that remained here, despite the destruction of the forest.

Slowly but steadily nature is being reborn here.

This was the message we wanted to share with you  with our Christmas card. Ecological and simple. Handmade and optimistic. With wishes to all of you for 2022. I would like to thank you very much for your cards and wishes.

• From the environmental organization “we4all” with  donor  the RODOPI dairy industry we are getting 300 plants and together with volunteers we will plant them on the hill of our estate that borders the village on Saturtay the 26th of Feb. 2022.It is an effort to protect the slope and to start beautifying the view for those who live in Rovies.

Dear guests, you are responsible travelers.
