We are located in East Crete, close to the town of Agios Nikolaos just about an hour (60 km) from Heraklion International Airport.

Our aromatic fields are a short drive away, close to Kritsa village. All of these locations are at easy distance – within about 10 km radius. This page is put together in order to help you with a little orientation before your journey, and in light of this, to organise our time together. Your choice of accommodation may also depend on whether you will drive a car while you are on Crete, or simply, what you want to experience more!

We honour your personal preferences, and would like to list here a couple of various accommodation options in the nearby areas. These are situated either:
– in
 the picturesque traditional village of Kritsa
– in the heart of the charming town of Agios Nikolaos, or 
– the outskirts of the town along the lovely beaches.

In addition, you may find plenty of nearby places via, airbnb, or any other agents. Due to the specific nature of the Cretan landscape, the map may not give you a full picture of convenient access, so if you may want to check your accommodation choice with us before your final booking, you are welcome to do so.

We love to meet and gather with our visitors at one of our close-by favourite seaside cafes ‘To Votsalo‘, so we added a pin to highlight this as a point of reference.

Crete is the largest and most Southern Greek island of the Mediterranean Sea, considered to be the birthplace of the Gods and the cradle of Europe. In recent times, the island has attracted many people – both Greeks and other nationalities – to find a new home on this land. Spiritual leaders from all over the world are visiting Crete and acknowledge the special energy vortex over the island. It is also mentioned as the root chakra of Europe that – just as 5000 years ago – has a special task in raising awareness, developing Earth culture, and bringing Universal balance to a higher level.
