Retreat location

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.
