Accommodation in Greece
Serenity Retreat is for solo travelers 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.
Tassoula Studios (we have 5)
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 kitchenettes have a two ring hob, oven (as of 2022) kettle and fridge and all have en-suite bathrooms.
Please note - Tiny Tassoula is both TINY and has a sidewards view onto the sea. It's basically a room with a double bed, fridge, 2 ring hob, kettle and bathroom. But not much room to swing a cat. The price reflects that.
Maria's Apartments (we have 4)
Right on the beach with a fabulous view of the magnificent crystal clear waters of the Ionian. They're a little more basic than Tassoula's, but perfectly adequate to rest, reflect and revitalise.
Self catering with two rings (in all accommodations) and a small oven (in the downstairs accommodations) and en-suite facilities. Two of the apartments are ground floor so you can put a sunbed on the patio and enjoy the shade of the canopy and are a few steps away from the beach. Two of them are first floor with balconies and great views.
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. We love her. The rooms are quite basic, but with decent cooking facilities.
Please note that we use the garden area next to Pana's Side for morning movement, meditation and the teaching of Qigong.
Letkothea's Apartments (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.
Dina's (we have 2)
We have two first floor apartments at Dina's. A one bed and a two bed. They're both quite basic but as always with Serenity Retreat, on the beach and with great views. The one bed has a two ring hob, the two bed has a full cooker. They both have separate kitchen areas and bathrooms.
They're a five minute walk from the heart of the village so suit those who are happy to be tucked away a little.
There is a grassy area with trees at the front of the apartments, just before the sea, so you can sunbathe in dappled shade and watch the water!
A compact studio but has all the necessary! Nicely decorated with fridge, kettle and two ring hob and en-suite bathroom. Great balcony looking directly out over the beach and the sea.
Ted's First Corner
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.
A ground floor large studio with a huge patio 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.
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 refurbished in 2020 in a contemporary style. It has a huge patio area out front and receives very favourable reports.
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.
