Given half a chance we would talk about Serenity Retreat and how much we love it until the cows come home. But we're biased. So we thought you'd like to hear what our guests and the media have had to say:
What the Media have said:
The Guardian had this to say on 10th January 2014
And The Times had this to say in their online version (as well as in the paper) on January 4th 2014:
Serenity Retreat (The Times - Top 50 Spa Holidays) UK & Greece:
"Serenity Retreat runs affordable retreat-style holidays on the island of Lefkada in Greece and at a country house in the UK. It’s great for solo travellers interested in spirituality and personal growth or just pure relaxation, and tends to attract people who have started to question their lives and who want to live more meaningfully".
The Daily Mail published an article in September 2013 here
Our average review score is 5, it's not saying that we're average!
We featured in National Geographic Traveller in the Top 5 Meditation Retreats in Europe:
"Best for solo travellers with a focus on personal growth and self-development."
We featured in The Times as a 'Top 50 Spa Holiday':
"It’s great for solo travellers interested in spirituality and personal growth or just pure relaxation, and tends to attract people who have started to question their lives and who want to live more meaningfully".
As well as in the Guardian:
Metro had this to say:
Set up by Zen meditation teacher Kim Bennett, Serenity Retreats are aimed at solo travellers looking for self development. The week long retreat has an easy-breezy approach and while there are mindfulness walks, guided meditations and excursions on offer, nothing is compulsory. "Our emphasis is on giving our guests space", Bennett says. "Our accommodation is on the beach and we encourage guests do nothing other than watch the sea and the mountain for a restorative effect".
And thanks to Jane Alexander and the Daily Mail Travel Section for this article. Not sure we would call ourselves chic, though!
