In order to supply a household with the basic infrastructural needs, we tend to use centralised networks for power, water, waste and waste water. This centralised approach is more suitable in densely populated areas that are characterised by short distances from input to output or output to input.
The Eco Lodge project plot is far away from these kind of supply networks. That’s why off-grid solutions became very attractive, on the one hand because we believe that under circumstances like these, they can do a better, cleaner, cheaper and more sustainable job and because necessary due to the location.
We implemented: power supply; rain water collection; rain water storage; rain water to fresh water; waste water treatment; composting human manure; use of treated waste water for non-edible plants and trees; natural light design and solar thermal design.
Addess: Tinos / Akeratos / Potamia / Steni / Eco Lodge
Getting to Tinos is basically quite easy. If you travel in the summer it is possible to take an airplane to Mykonos from where it is only 30 min by boat to Tinos. For timetables of the ferries check out here. If travelling outside of the main season it will be necessary to fly to Athens. From the airport you can take a bus to the harbour of Rafina, which runs at least once every hour and takes about 30 min. The boat from Rafina to Tinos leaves several times per dayand takes around 4 hours, or 2 hours if you take the fast one. If you plan to stay a day or two in Athens, it is also possible to take the boat from Pireas harbour, which leaves only in the morning but is closer to the centre and possible to reach by metro. Tickets for the ferries are available at each harbour.
The Ecolodge is 14km away from Tinos port, zoom out to see the location. To get here follow the signs direction Steni village, after you pass the village turn right direction Potamia and Santa Margarita, before reaching Potamia turn again right direction Santa Margarita. You will meet us half way down the hill on your right.
