What YOU say about us:

This week has been as close to perfection as I have known in a long time! The sea, the stars, the home; everything is perfect and meant for what you are doing with it. I felt right at home from the very first night.

I can’t thank you enough for the most fabulous time at Limnisa.

What you have there is so special. Really, I can’t think of words to say enough how wonderful it was to be at your inspiring retreat.

Everything you do here radiates care and thoughtfulness. It’s been a great pleasure to spend time with you again, in this lovely setting and atmosphere of easily flowing conversation, open-mindedness and genuine care.

Limnisa is lovely, perfect – couldn’t have been better – a very tranquil environment to focus thought. Really good to have a routine like this – very conductive to writing.

The workshop was very useful. The exercises and discussions really helped me to develop new ideas and scenes. The duration is also good, plenty of time to go in depth without bogging down the process.

What a fantastic peaceful place to write. A beautiful house right on the sea with a private beach, the silence to work concentrated, the delicious food and the hospitality of Mariel and Philip, inspiring conversations at the table. What would want more?

I'll definitely come back because there is no better place to write.

Yoga is a nice way to start the day. 

I have been able to do everything that I intended. Partly due to the daily schedule and the guidance of Mariel.

Your good care is great. Nothing seems too much. Everything has been thought of and every request is answered. You go the extra mile.

What a wonderful week. I can't think of a time when I've met so many beautiful souls and enjoyed brand new experiences.

I also wanted to thank you both so much for my week at Limnisa. It was truly inspirational, an experience that among many other things, allowed me to clear my head and to start something new. I feel I'll be able to summon the views from Limnisa if ever the city I'm in feels overwhelming, and remember what it feels like to sit before open space in silence. My time there was really such a gift.

What you have – what you share – who you are – all these are incredible blessings to those fortunate enough to come to Limnisa. Thank you for trusting those who come from all over the world to meet you and spend time in your home. No one experiences Greece the way we get to. See you next year.




Many thanks for the wonderful time I had in your company and in your delightful home. 


My stay was both stimulating and relaxing, and productive.
