Levinthos is a brand new retreat center and a small family-run business. It is located in a secluded part of the bay of Lentas, known from the ancient times for its unique healing energy. Lentas is protected as an archaeological site and as a result, no big hotels can be found there. This has preserved the outstanding natural beauty and serenity of the area.

Levinthos offers four luxury en-suite flats and four studios next to the yoga shala, and just a minute away from a beautiful secluded beach. They are all double glazed and equipped with an ecological air-condition based on “geothermia”. Each flat and studio has a fully equipped kitchenette, bathroom, and a front shaded garden. Levinthos flats consist of two spaces, a bedroom, and a living area. They can accommodate one to four people. Meanwhile, Levinthos studios consist of one space, bedroom, and attached kitchenette.

Filoxenia

Filoxenia Lentas Apartments are located in a small beautiful bay of the Libyan Sea at the picturesque seaside village of Lentas in the prefecture of Heraklion. They are built in an isolated and quiet place just 200 meters from the village. Filoxenia Lentas consists of two separate buildings which offer comfortable and well-equipped rooms with private balconies. It is encircled by a beautiful garden and offers an impressive view of the sea.

Filoxenia studios and apartments are located just across the road from Levinthos, a couple of minutes walking distance to the yoga shala and the Cafe-Restaurant.

Retreat location

Lentas is an idyllic fishing village on the south coast of Crete in Greece. The name Lentas derives from Λέοντας (in English, “lion”) and refers to the lion-shaped cape that makes the bay of Lentas. Lentas has a great history with the oldest tracks of remainders being located at the stone era. Lentas became famous across its borders because of the Asklipio Temple (4th century BC). Asclepius was the god of medicine, healing, and rejuvenation. People went to the temple to be healed. They slept overnight and reported their dreams to a priest the next day. The priest would prescribe a cure, to visit the baths or drink the healing water of the area; Visitors from all over Greece and North Africa visited in that time the magnificently equipped hot springs with their welfare-bringing water.

Nowadays, the whole village is protected as an archaeological area which prevents building large hotels and so Lentas keeps its beautiful landscape almost intact. Lentas has many traditional tavernas and cafés where you can taste the local Cretan cuisine or enjoy a drink right by the Libyan sea. There are many beautiful beaches in close proximity, such as Ostria, Dytikos, Loutra, and Trachoulas. If you like climbing or walking, you can take one of the many paths up the mountain of ” Lion” and enjoy the stunning views of the landscape and sea.
