Accommodation in Greece

Jump to Accommodation Facilities

Serenity Retreat is for solo travellers wanting sole occupancy of studios and apartments. We don't cater for sharers! Just solos :)

All the accommodations available to Serenity Retreat are within a leisurely eight minute walk of each other.

Our Accommodations

Tassoula Studios (we have 4)

Studios directly on the beach. Really - on the beach. Nothing but fresh air between you and the sea. All with incredible sea views. Ground floor studios/apartments are bigger, first floor are smaller but with an elevated view. So it will depend on whether you want an elevated view from the balcony, or whether it's important for you to be on the same level as a cup of tea and the loo! They were refurbed a couple of years ago and all but Tassoula Bijou has a sofa. The little kitchenettes have a two ring hob, kettle and fridge and the studios all have ensuite bathrooms.

Pana's Apartments (we have 3)

Self catering with separate kitchen/dining area in a more traditional style. They are also right on the beach, and all have sea views and patios or balconies. Two ground floor apartments with beautiful patio area out the front, and one first floor apartment with a double aspect sea and mountain view bedroom and 3 (yes 3!) balconies. Run by the fabulous Panayiota who speaks no English but that doesn't stop her practising her 'how are you?' on you! Quite basic, but with decent cooking facilities.

Please note that we sometimes use the garden area next to Pana's Side to run our courses.

Lefkothea Studios (we have 2)

These are modern, stylish, cool and shady studios with the beach also right in front of you. Both of the studios are on the ground floor with patio looking out onto the sea and a lovely lawn to sunbathe on if you don't fancy the beach (which is 10 metres away). Lovely cooking facilities and bathroom. The studios are open plan and both slightly different although they have a bedroom area and kitchen area and sofa/day bed.

Ted's Bijou

A compact studio but has all the necessary! Nicely decorated with fridge, kettle and two ring hob. Great balcony looking directly out over the beach and the sea.

Ted's Large

A good sized studio with a sofa/bed. Lovely balcony, once again, looking out directly to the beach and the sea. Small kitchenette area and ensuite bathroom.

Ted's Studio

A ground floor large studio with huge balcony and fabulous sea views. Lots of space indoors and out to get your yoga mat out (we can lend you one) or dance around wildly. It's has two patios, one to the front with full sun and one to the side which is deliciously shaded by trees. We used to do our outside meditation here so you can imagine how lovely it is. Please note that we sometimes use part of the patio at Ted's Studio to run our courses.

Ted's Apartment

This is a ground floor apartment with a large outside patio area looking out onto the beach. It has a living room/kitchen and a separate double bedroom and bathroom. The living room and bedroom both have patio doors opening out onto the sea and the beach. This apartment was newly refurbished last year in a contemporary style. It has a huge patio area out front and so far this year has received very favourable reports.

Theo's Apartments (we have 2)

Two beautifully appointed and furnished first floor apartments also right on the beach. With separate living room, kitchen, bathroom and bedroom - perfect if you are after amazing views, privacy and a touch of luxury (only one has the rocking chair, so book early....). These get booked up VERY early on.

What time of year should you come?

It depends on your priorities. If you want real peace and quiet then take advantage of our Personal Retreat weeks in early May and October - the compromise is that the weather is more unpredictable but never have we had a week without good sitting outside or sunbathing opportunities (and indeed the last two Octobers have been MAGNIFICENT). Fewer tavernas are open in May and most are closed in October so you'd need to self cater. It's incredibly quiet and tranquil, so if you're really looking to switch off completely and bathe yourself in nature, this is the time to come.

June and September are best for weather (although nothing is guaranteed!), the compromise here is that we share the beaches and village with other holidaymakers (mostly Greeks and Italians and it's never sardine busy). All the tavernas are open during these times too.

Wifi and TVs

We don't advertise these although some of the accommodations do have both. We don't advertise them because the wifi is notoriously unreliable and the tv stations are in Greek (or the tvs don't work!). The local cafes and tavernas all have more reliable wifi but we would strongly recommend coming with the intention of not using either, or at least limiting your normal use.
