Things to do

Swim in the warm inviting sea right by the hotel and taverna.

Walk down to one of the most amazing beaches of Crete, Agios Pavlos Sandhills with its spectacular sunsets. Walk the beautiful gorges of Rethymno or walk 3km to Kourtaliotis which is one of the most spectacular natural attractions of Rethymnon.

The huge cliffs of the canyon rise to 600metres and are full of caves. There is the beach at Preveli, also known as Lake Preveli or Pheonix.

During the 60s and 70s, it was a favorite destination for hippies. On the banks of the Grand River there is a large colony of Theophrastus palm trees, which give the region a sense of an African landscape.

The river, forming a large lake, 1.5km long, before emptying into the sea, has water all year round. You can walk along the river, under the shade of palm trees and other trees, and climb the beautiful canyon.

This what Akushi says

'Explore the mythology of Greece with us, dancing Biodanza, swimming, lazing on the beach, sharing precious time together surrounded by the dramatic landscape of southern Crete.

When the Angels guided me to Biodanza I had no idea how it would bring towards me so many Blessings. 
Deep friendships, connection, communion and inner transformation work elevating my relating with myself, my family my female friends and my male friends, YES! Ruth it is absolutely precious to spend time with one another and celebrate a Loving Community, Ooh! and lets not leave out a sprinkling of romance too. 

And the gift just keeps on giving. And so I am soooooo excited that I am going to the Biodanza retreat in Greece, where the sandy beaches are glorious and the views are spectacular.

Wow! Yes it's really happening and What an opportunity this summer in August/September, to be together and dive deep and step into Happiness, with expert and compassionate teachers who will safely guide you organically into the natural rhythm of your inner joy. 

The perfect place to let go and let love lead the way within the turquoise hues from the sunny skies within.

I am going and it would be such a treat if you would join me and others. I've been so busy this year and I know others have and so I feel this is the perfect meeting place to meet up. 

See below Ruth's invitation and be sure to book now to get a place and more information about booking and travelling options. 

I know I can't believe the great price too, how can it be, I believe its because the teachers and students know just how incredible Biodnaza is, so much so the results after one class leave me feeling more grounded, centred and open within a group and community environment. Everything getting in the way of real love just drops away as we dance away in to Bliss. 

Yes i could ramble on lots about the gems this retreat offers peace, dance, friendship, inner transformation and so much more, fun, affection, closeness and boundaries too, are just a few so take my word for it and come along and experience Biodanza retreat in Greece, Lets be together in southern Crete and have a fabulous time. 

I'm sure with good communication and sharing with one another link ups to make travelling plans easier are possible.'.

This is what Altair says  '

I am really looking forward to this Holiday on this particular Greek island, which is STEEPED in Mythology.
