THE RETREAT CENTER (MAIN BUILDING)
The newly-built retreat center is a two-level facility. The ground floor houses the living room where there are yoga books available for study. The main yoga hall is on this floor, as well as the fireplace with a view of the garden and pool. During your free time, it is possible to take a walk between the fruit trees, olive trees, and flowers of the 3000 square meters garden, go for a refreshing dip in the pool, or relax in the outer terrace.
The house’s bedrooms are situated on the second floor (access via inner staircase from living room) and are decorated in a cozy minimal yogic style, each with their own closets and verandas overlooking the countryside. Rooms have shared single beds or bunk-beds, shared bathroom, and a bathroom with a Jacuzzi is also available for use. All rooms are air-conditioned and have Wi-Fi.
CARAVANS (WITHIN RETREAT CENTER PREMISES)
The caravan accommodation is a more yogic way of living, in a spacious and fully-equipped recreational vehicle with single separated beds, toilet, shower and small kitchenette. The caravans are securely placed in the outdoor front garden area of the retreat center.
The retreat center is located in a quiet and isolated spot near Karteros Beach, an approximate 10-minute drive from the airport (5 km) and city center of Heraklion(7km). Being located near the airport makes our Centre easily accessible.
The local beach in Karteros is a two kilometer long sandy beach, facing the Mediterranean Sea. The beach is certified with the “blue flag”, which means that it is clean and safe for swimming. It is about a 15-20 minutes walk from our Centre.
Two beautiful gorges within walking distance from our Center will make easy routes for trekking. The archaeological site of Knossos, which was the capital of the Minoan civilization is a near car-ride.
