This is our favorite place in South of Crete – Paleochora. Paleochora is a beautiful, graphic village set on a peninsula, surrounded by water on 3 sides. The village itself has a very laid-back hippie vibe with kilometers of beautiful beach stretches on both sides of a peninsula. The food in the village is absolutely amazing and you will find a wide variety from local Greek tavernas, Sea food tavernas, to a Vegetarian Restaurant (our favorite!). To reach Paleochora you’d need to fly into Chania International Airport and then take a bus from the central bus station to Paleochora. The buses run frequently throughout the day and the bus ride takes about 1,5 hrs. Our training venue is just a short taxi ride from Paleochora bus stop, and we can assist you with a taxi. It is also possible to take a taxi directly from the airport, please contact us and we will inquire with the taxi company for you.


Our venue is a place we come back to year after year for the past 20 years. It is an eco-lodge build especially for seminars, 4km outside of Paleochora, set in nature with all the quiet and privacy that we require for our work. Beaches and Paleochora village are accessible by a taxi, we usually arrange the pick-up and drop off for the group at a specific hour. Many of our past participants also loved to walk the beautiful route to the beach and Paleochora village that takes anywhere between 20min and 40min. Accommodation is based on a double occupancy. Single rooms are limited but can be arranged upon request.

*Food IS NOT included on this course. Due to wide dietary preferences we’ve faced in the last years, the overall cost of food to satisfy all diets proved not to be cost effective for our participants. For this reason, we have removed the cost of food from this course and instead we provide two fully equipped kitchens for your use where you can store and prepare your food. We will arrange 2 trips to the supermarket during our stay so that you can purchase your brunch groceries. Late lunch / early dinner is usually eaten outside at the beach or in one of the many delicious restaurants that provide fresh local food.
