I picked the island of Crete a little randomly — the flights were cheap, I needed a holiday, it wasn’t awfully far from Berlin, the Chania weather sounded like just what I needed, the gazillion Chania beaches were just the ticket, this little town called Loutro seemed too good to be true, and a Chania car rental cost peanuts. It do be a done deal, I thought. My friend Olga and I decided to wing it a little, flew right into Chania, decided on a cheap Chania airport car rental company, picked one of many affordable Chania hotels for the first three nights, and off we went on a whim.
If you’re looking for a yoga retreat in Greece, I’ve got you covered. For this guide, I have handpicked the best Greece currently has to offer in terms of health, wellness and yoga getaways.
For yoga retreats, Greece is one of my top picks; not only do I love visiting the Mediterranean countries, but Greece has it all — island life, great food, and all that ancient culture! I have found that I often want a little more than just yoga when on retreat, and like to tick off multiple boxes by either combining it with another activity or visiting a place that has an interesting history.
