This retreat will be held in Lefokastro, in the beautiful Pelion Peninsula, Greece. This is a hidden gem by the sea, undiscovered by tourists and very unspoiled.
The retreats are popular and for get booked up early. Please do note that the area is in a very unspoilt corner of Greece. It's very Greek, timeless and undiscovered. You will not only be pleasantly surprised by the beauty, stillness and magical location of Lefokastro but will also realize that places like this remain so unspoilt because they are not conveniently placed next to airports. If you want the convenience of a short hop from the airport to your destination and a spot of sun and sea then this is possibly not for you. The destination is one of the key features of the retreat, it is off the beaten track, private and undiscovered. Sandy coves abound.
