A once in a lifetime opportunity of living an idyllic lifestyle on a Greek Island may be too much for anybody to resist.
The authorities want to increase the population of the small Greek island of Antikythera, situated between Crete and Kythira.
And, in order to do this, officials are willing to write a monthly pay cheque to families who move in.
Currently, it has only 24 permanent residents and the population increases to 40 during the summer, Chronicle Live reports.
However, the majority of the population is aged 50 and over and there are very few children.
Keen to change this, officials have started a “re-population project” and are looking for families with more than three children to relocate there.
Under the scheme, authorities will provide families with a monthly stipend of €500, which is about £450.
Speaking to the Greek website iefimerida, president of the local council, Andreas Harhalakis, said it is also searching for people who are willing to work as fishermen, stock-farmers, builders or bakers.
He says anyone willing to fulfill these roles could “secure a decent payday”.
The council president said about 300 people inhabited the island when he was at school over four decades ago, but numbers have dwindled since.
“We are looking for many families to ‘revive’ our island,” he said.
Antikythera has only one small provisions shop, with basic food and vegetables.
However, it does have electricity and internet connection.
