Location

This retreat will take place in Lentas, South Crete, Greece. Lentas is just 75 kilometers away from Heraklion City in South Crete. The distance can be covered by car in one hour and 10 minutes approximately. The road is passing through many traditional villages of the inland Crete, the plain of Messara, and the fascinating rocky mountain range of Asterousia.

The village of Lentas has many traditional taverns and cafes where you can taste the famous Cretan food and enjoy your coffee or drink exactly next to the Libyan Sea. The region is optimal for an undisturbed stay away from the hectic pace of city life and combines relaxation with physical activity such as swimming in the crystal clear waters of the sea or walking along the verdant trekking routes of the area.

The place has preserved its natural beauty due to the fact that there are many underground antiquities. The climate of Lentas is mildly hot and dry allowing visitors to have a swim most of the time of the year. The bay is well protected against the wind and the waters are always crystal and clear.
