I have previously suggested that the community that gathers around this site could purchase a home (see here; also here). Don’t ask me how (because I seriously cannot remember) but I recently stumbled upon a monastery for sale.
It is on the site of a hermitage dating back to the fifth century. But now with a swimming pool!
Do look through the photos.
Oh, I see now that it has a price: EUR 5,500,000!
I’m sure we can sort that with a givealittle page (or other crowd-funding website).
This company, in fact, has a number of monasteries for sale. In fact, they say, “If you have not found the monastery that you were looking for, please register to our NEWSLETTER and we will contact you as soon as a property suitable to your requirements comes up for sale.”
I hadn’t realised how big a market this was until I put “monastery for sale” into Google!
