Retreat location

This holiday will take place in Lentas, Crete, Greece. 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 in the stone era. Lentas became famous across its borders because of the Asklipio Temple (4th century B.C.).

Asklipios 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.
