He began a big effort the summer of 2006, that already has yielded admirable improvement in the functional problems that existed in the buildings but also the remainder places of the Monastery. With minimal financial resources he hopes, with the help of God and the support of people, to find the courage to continue and complete his work. 

Approximately fifteen kilometres westwards of Corfu town, between the villages of Pelekas and Vatos, under the mountain of Agios-Georgios and directly after the idyllic beach of “Myrtiotissa”, stands the monastery of Virgin Mary of Myrtidiotissa. The Monastery is placed in the verdurous side of the mountain few tens of meters above the sea, in a place of wild beauty surrounded with pines, olives and wild vegetation. All these in combination with the enormous rocks that hang from the mountain above the Monastery they initially cause the visitor a feeling of awes and concern, however very soon is getting floated with feelings of peacefulness and devoutness that help him feel the greatness of nature, the uniqueness of the place and to approach intelligibly closer to the Creator.
