About This Center


  The beauty of nature is often the first inspiration that we become aware of in our search for insight, peace and well-being. The Artemis Estate is situated in an area of natural beauty between the sea and the hills, and is very well suited for group retreats of up to twelve people. The land looks towards the Eastern horizon over the sea which provides the backdrop for the ever-changing daily drama of the sunrise. The communal areas are designed to be fully adaptable for different uses. Tables and chairs are available for study groups, if required. Pan, the covered pergola, can be left clear for meditation, yoga, or tai chi, etc. It has roller blinds to provide shelter from the sun and the elements, as well as extra privacy if needed, so can be used throughout the year.

The indoor lounge is comfortably laid out with easy furniture, and a small fridge for drinks, and is big enough for further group activities. While each bedroom unit has its own kitchenette, the communal kitchen is equipped to cater for larger group meals. The kitchen leads out onto the garden under the olive trees with a view of the sea, and a peaceful area for quiet reflection and/or communal meals.

The grounds of the estate behind The Spheres accommodation are developing in harmony with the natural landscape, with areas for private contemplation and solitude.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

So that I am rejuvenated to be the best I can be in my relationships - personal, work and in Society - offering and giving to be of benefit to others! Laura

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
