Greece Writing Retreat

Expert tip: This is one of the most popular yoga retreats offered in Greece.

It's not always easy in everyday life to find enough quiet time to be creative and mindful. We sometimes need space and silence in a safe, supportive environment. This is what Limnisa offers. Come to Limnisa! No distractions and no excuse not to get down to writing. You are welcome if you want to focus on a project or something on your mind, be it artistic or more personal, provided you are happy to be silent in the mornings and make space for other guests. Write in a place that is calm, with only others like you, working away on their projects.

Highlights

  • Five morning yoga sessions
  • Your private silent times
  • A paradise-like environment
  • Evening events to read your work
  • Delicious vegetarian or vegan meals
  • 7 nights accommodation
  • Stunning house by the sea

Accommodation

The house is on the edge of the shore, in an otherwise empty cove, with the most incredible views across the Saronic Gulf. From here you can see four islands and the mountains of the Peloponnese. The word 'paradise' is mentioned by 90% of their visitors, but you will have to see it for yourself.

There are rooms at the main house with shared use of toilet and bathroom. Studios are with sea view, private bathroom, balcony, kitchen, and aircon. There are also rooms in a fully equipped sea view apartment with shared kitchen and bathroom, plus air-conditioner. Both the studios and apartment is a 15-minute walk from the main house. They have tents in the garden near the sea.

Amenities

  • Each room has a desk with a view
  • Garden
  • Pergola
  • Beach
  • Shop
  • Many terraces

You can buy certain items (like postage stamps, postcards, tampons, batteries, etc.) at Limnisa.

Program

During the week there is a routine, entirely optional, with a set time for yoga and the evening meal but extended periods for breakfast and lunch buffets. You can also eat out if you prefer. Limnisa organizes literary evenings for those who want to take part, but nothing is mandatory.

Schedule

Start the day with an optional yoga class, enjoy breakfast out on one of the many terraces, and spend the morning in silence.

After lunch, you can go back to writing or take time for swimming and walking.

In the evenings, if you prefer, you can dine in a local taverna down by the waterfront in a village nearby (1 and 3 kilometers) or go to Methana town by cab (10 kilometers along the corniche).

They also hold evening events, giving guests the chance to read their work aloud or join a campfire on the beach

Retreat location

Agios Georgios consists of about 50 houses, three tavernas, a mini-market, a church, a harbor, and a beach. Limnisa has its own beach. The waters are perfect for snorkeling. The countryside roundabout is mountainous, wild, and rugged, with mule tracks winding through olive groves. A unique and special location to be shared by creative people; mostly writers but also painters and those seeking time to step back, re-evaluate or just think in a place that is calm and serene.

Distances

  • Methana town, 10 kilometers
  • Epidaurus, 60 kilometers
  • Nafplion, 80 kilometers
