We inform you that from the new year and on, there is a guard/tour guide in the “GOURA” Environmental and Cultural Park of the springs of Anavra, who is responsible for the cleaning, maintenance, the protection of the park in general and the guided tours for the visitors.
The arrangement in prior is necessary for timely and better organizing the visits. Our goal is our voluntary supply to be as efficient and productive as possible for both guests and the location.

Anavra October 2011
Dear friend of Anavra
In this very difficult situation for us, we turn to you and ask you to help as much as you can, in order not to be wasted all the work that has been done here in recent years and has made Anavra known not only in the region and Greece but also abroad. Anavra today more than ever, is a bright spot, a lighthouse, a hope and an optimistic message that if we want, we can do it, we can go ahead. This hope must not be lost, must not be extinguished.
The difficulties we are facing are many. Due to the economic crisis, which provides zero funds for projects, due to the catastrophic for the local Government law of Kallikrates which deprived Anavra of an autonomy and self-managing of its sources community, and finally due to how the City of Almiros governs, which is no different than the prevailing majority of Greek cities.
In this situation we did not stay and will not stay with crossed hands. We faced much more or less difficult situations when Anavra was a forgotten mountain farming village with muddy streets and animals to move throughout them. But we did it. The Community of Anavra had in the last 12 years, the highest growth among all local communities and with environmentally friendly projects such as wind farms, Environmental Cultural Park, a small hydroelectric power (in auctions), district heating (full study). Now, as ordinary citizens, we created a non-profit company "ANAVRA-ZO. VOLUNTARY ORGANISATION OF ANAVRA MAGNESIA FOR ENVIRONMENT, SUSTAINABILITY AND CULTURE» (www.anavra-zo.gr) in order to help in any way this place to remain alive, to continue to lead by example and even evolve against and in spite of times.
In this effort, we want your help, financial and any other. You can, if you want to deposit any contribution to the following account:
COMMERCIAL BANK ALMIROS account. 308 88068 220
EMPORIKI BANK Branch 308 ALMYROS MAGNESIA,
IBAN: GR04 0120 3080 0000 0008 8068 220
Thank you very much and be certain that the money will be used for good causes

It is a fact that in recent years with the great publicity that has received Anavra Magnesia, we accept many e-mails and phone calls from people who are frustrated by city life, who want to settle in our village and work here. But we must inform anyone who cares about that, that Anavra is a purely farming village that has no relation to the traditional villages of mountain Pelion.
It remains to add that it is difficult to find homes (for purchase or rental) that are suitable for a comfortable life but there is a list of properties available for sale.
As for the matter of employment, of course, a certain profession is that of the farmer. Beyond that, the small community of Anavra (500 approx. residents) and visitors (especially on weekends and holidays) be in need of some services and shops, which do not currently exist. Besides of an oven and a mini market, which are already operating, someone could open a shop with local products and other types of touristic shops and perhaps a hairdresser and a petrol station.
Because many are asking how they can become citizens of Anavra, the condition is that the person is a resident for two years and states as its business address Anavra Magnesia to the tax office of Almiros city.
