International Writing Retreats
Could you do with some time away to get on with your writing project without the distractions of home?
Come to Limnisa. No distractions or household chores: no excuse not to get down to work!
Write in a place that is calm and quiet, with only others like you, working away on their projects. You can start the day with a yoga class: enjoy breakfast out on the terrace and spend the morning in silence. After lunch you can go back to work or take time for swimming or walking.
Limnisa has its own beach. The sea is clear and perfect for snorkeling. The countryside round about is mountainous, wild and rugged, with mule tracks winding through olive groves. Breakfast, lunch and most evening meals are buffets, made up of good local produce, with traditional Greek recipes. All food at Limnisa is vegetarian. Tea, coffee, biscuits and fruit are available through the day. Wine/ beer and soft drinks are available.
In the evenings you can stay at Limnisa or choose to dine in a local taverna down by the waterfront in one of the two villages nearby (1 or 3km), or go off to Methana town (10km along the corniche).
In the middle of the week we'll be hosting a 'Literary evening' on the roof terrace, with food and drinks and anybody who wants to can read out a small piece of their work! You can also sign up for a local excursion, perhaps to the sulphur baths, the volcano, the sunken city or a boattrip to a nearby island of our choice.
You are welcome to make use of all we have to offer: A multilingual library with plenty of fiction, history, art. The terraces, beach and sun-loungers. Bikes and snorkelling gear.
Most guests are accommodated in rooms at Limnisa or in a shared apartment in the village, but it's also possible to stay in a tent in the garden or rent a studio in the village. All accommodation has sea views.
Retreat Plus. The Retreat PLUS option includes one daily private consultation with Philip about your work.
