    COVID UPDATE

    The situation is changing constantly and therefore we ask you to please take responsibility for checking your govt. requirements with regard to PCR testing, international travel and quarantine.

    In Greece, PCR testing is available at the airport or can be privately arranged to come to your hotel. The results are ready within 6 hours and you will receive an official laboratory report, to your email, which can be downloaded and printed for travel.Please see the link below for the most up to date information from the Greek Govt.

    Here are some other useful guidelines per country:

    TRAVELLING TO THE ISLAND:

    Here is a basic overview of how to get to the Island. Once you have booked, you will receive detailed updated travel information pack.

    The retreat runs from Sunday to Saturday weekly. The pick up point for transfer to the Island is from the harbour at Oreoi on each Sunday, the day the retreat begins. Pick up time is 12:30pm in low season and 10:30am in high season. We time the pick ups to match the bus arrival times.
    In 2020 there was no high or low season and the first bus from Athens was at 8:45am and the pick up time was12:30pm, as far as we are aware, it will be the same for 202!.

    GETTING TO GREECE:

    ATHENS:
    The airport you need to fly into is Athens International Airport, Elefthérios Venizélos.

    Once in Athens you have two choices of getting to the Island. The trip will take three and a half to four hours either way.

    Private transport: We use Athens Taxi Transfers for transfers from Athens to the closest local port by private or shared taxi. You can contact Frances on info@athens-taxi-transfers.com" for prices either via the mountains or the ferry crossing (same route as the bus)

    By Bus: There is a daily bus at 6:45am (high season) and 8:45am (low season) directly to our local port. the cost is €18 and it includes a fun ferry crossing €4,70.

    You will arrive at 12:20pm (low season) and 10:20am (high season) and we will meet you as the bus comes in. You will have an opportunity to get a few last minute things in the village before departing for the island by boat.

    Alternatively for those wanting to spend some time exploring incredible Greece, there are many other airlines and flights into Athens. If you don't enjoy cities and want to get to the beach, then you are welcome to stay in our little local village of Oreoi. We have included accommodation recommendations and booking details in our travel pack for you.

    FROM THE ISLAND:

    On Saturday, we will transport you to the Mainland in order to catch the 1pm bus to Athens. The Bus arrives at 5pm in Athens. It takes half an hour by bus or taxi to the Airport.

    When you are booking your return flight, please allow enough time for you to catch your outbound flight - any time after 19h00.

    PLEASE NOTE:

    Alternative arrival / departure times are NOT possible. Being a private island, we rely on a water taxi service to bring our guest to and from the island. Due to the strict maritime laws, we are not able to take guests across with our own boat. The weather also become unpredictable in the afternoons with the North winds, so crossing is not always possible, and the port police will ground all boats. If you are not able to make pick up time, this needs to be communicated well in advance and it will cost €150 for the trip, but this too will be weather dependent.
