If you feel a little tired of modern life and want to trade in your stressful days in the city for a peaceful life by the sea, this might be the chance of a lifetime. The Greek island of Antikythera is currently looking for residents and is offering a salary to anyone who wants to move there. So keep reading to learn all the essential details before you start packing.


If you travel to the Aegean Sea, you will arrive at an island surrounded by turquoise waters hidden in the ocean that holds approximately 7.89 square miles of nature known as Antikythera. There is only one town in Antikythera called Potamos. It sounds like a forgotten place, but the world set its eyes on this small island back in the early twentieth century when a 2000-year-old device considered to be the first computer was found here: The Antikythera Mechanism.


Over the decades, Antikythera went back into oblivion, but it now hopes to become the new home to many, as local governors are looking for residents willing to move in.

The island has recently launched a repopulation project with the help and sponsorship of the Greek Orthodox Church. The campaign attempts to attract large families willing to change their lives and move to the mesmerizing location. The chosen lucky ones will in return be rewarded with a house, a portion of land to grow food or set up a business on, as well as a salary of about $560 per month during their first three years of residence.


The project arose as a potential solution to the small and declining number of inhabitants on the island, a place that today has just about 20 residents. Antikythera has been losing its community because of a decrease in the birth rate and the migration of young adults to several cities in search of better economic opportunities. So the project is directed mainly at families with kids.

Priority will be given to Greek citizen applicants; however, people from any nationality are welcome to apply. The first families have already moved to the island. Thanks to the new kid residents, a local school was able to reopen after being closed for over 24 years.


If you’re looking to transform your life into an experience full of magnificent views, you might be the kind of citizens that the island's authorities are looking for. However, if you aren’t convinced yet and have doubts about being disconnected from the world, you should know you’ve got nothing to worry about. You can find the city bustle just two hours away by ferry on the island of Crete, or four hours away in Laconia, Greece’s mainland.
