And besides the above-mentioned, you don’t need to worry at all. So, now that you’ve learned about these interesting and captivating islands, start packing your bags and prepare to be amazed by nature’s magnificence like you’ve never seen before.

If you’re a little bit of a country nut, you’ll be happy to learn that you can get your gangly limbs on a private house, a yard with hens, a plot of land for farming, and a monthly salary of €550 for 3 years – just by the sea. The problem? On the remote Greek island of Antikythera, there are just 40 people. Applications from all over the world are accepted, however Greek people are given preference as part of Greece’s goal to repopulate the island with families. Yes, the island lacks a grocery, but don’t forget that chickens are for food, right? Additionally, we’re thinking that the clean dunes, clear waterways, and unspoiled wildlife help compensate for the absence of humanity.
