Good quality wi-fi signals in an idyllic setting overlooking the sea, funky authentic villages with great bars, harbours and restaurants, lots of adventures to be had, and the opportunity to help an island struggling with a whole bunch of crises; Lesvos is the perfect playground for socially engaged digital nomads.
Good quality wifi, plenty of electricity outlets, places to retreat and talk, authentic food and drinks, an infinity pool for laps or lounging and, unbeatable views of the sea, the gorgeous ancient village of Molyvos and, the burning sunsets.
The Bird Cafe is as good as co-working spaces come.
Lesvos offers lots of value for really not that much cost!
You can get the best Greek meals and drinks in local bars and tavernas and, we’ve been able to arrange special rates on high quality and self-sufficient accommodation for digital nomads who stay for 1 month or more too.
“We live in deeds, not years; in thoughts, not breaths; in feelings, not in figures on a dial. We should count time by heart throbs.” – Aristotle
WHY WE’D LOVE TO WELCOME YOU TO THE ISLAND
In all honesty, the economic crisis and the fact that traditional tour operators and tourists are staying away post the entry of refugees, volunteers, NGPOs/NPOs on Lesvos, there’s a lot of strain on our community and economy. A strain the government can’t fix.
That’s why we’re working on attracting and encouraging alternative forms of tourism and, that includes Digital Nomads.
Though we’ve got mindful and pro-active people on the island, it’s always smart to team up with and, include global perspectives and people who have specific skills, knowledge, resources and, extended networks.
We have a range of projects and themes that we’re working on and would love your help (mind you, only if you want to).
We’ve learnt (the hard way) that, depending too much on government and tourism isn’t going to cut it in the present or (near) future, so we want to make sure we spread the risks and go beyond the traditional means of creating income on the island.
And we’re thinking BIG here! As in, creating a big Living Lab here big!
