The perfect Writer’s Retreat in Crete

Hello and a very warm welcome to Your Writer’s Retreat in Crete…

Are you already a writer? Or maybe you want to start work on your first book? Perhaps you have another creative project in mind? Maybe you need to write a proposal for investors in your new start-up?  A series of blogs for your new website? Or a movie script?

Are you feeling burnt-out? Do you have writer’s block? Or is there something else sabotaging your creativity? Is there an important deadline getting closer and making you panic?

Do you need to get away and have uninterrupted time to write every day? With support and encouragement, if you need it? Quiet time alone to get on with your work? And a friendly person to chat to at the end of the day?

How about the chance to experience everyday life in a vibrant Cretan town? Sample delicious local cuisine? And explore the beautiful scenery, turquoise water and historical sites of this surprising Mediterranean island?

Then come along to your very own, private Writer’s Retreat in Crete, tailored just for you… you decide when you want to stay and book your travel, we do all the rest…

Your Writer’s Retreat includes your own bedroom with a comfortable queen-sized bed. There is a wide glass door opening onto your own little balcony.  Just next door you have a beautiful Writing Room, with access to a wireless printer and scanner.

Your Writing Room opens onto the same balcony, through another glass door. From here you have a panoramic view of the sea, sky and mountains surrounding this bustling seaside town, which you will enjoy from your desk every day. Or you can take a short walk to the sea, lake or marina and write in a café by the water.

Your Retreat is located in a lovely modern apartment in the town of Agios Nikolaos in East Crete. This is just under one hour’s drive away from Heraklion, Crete’s biggest town. You will be met on arrival at the airport or ferry terminal and taken to your new home from home.

You are in the heart of the town, with every amenity you could ask for. There is a wide range of restaurants and street cafes, where you can sip a coffee and watch the world go by – and maybe work on your new characters.  Many places have free WIFI so you can work on the go. You can walk everywhere, with the nearest beach five minutes away for a morning dip in the sea. People swim here all year round and some say that it is still warm enough to swim at Christmas time.

The weather in Crete is lovely and you can really enjoy the changing seasons. Spring is warm and sunny. It can get very hot in July and August, so there is air conditioning, fans and mobile air-coolers if you need them. From September to Christmas the weather is usually balmy. It rarely goes below 3º degrees in the Winter. There are central heating radiators and double glazing for the winter and sun-blinds and mosquito screens for the summer.

This is an attractive newly-built and well-maintained apartment on the third floor of a small building in a safe, friendly area. There is a large elevator. You will be living in a Greek street, surrounded by local families, in a friendly holiday town where most people speak English and are happy to welcome you.

If this sounds like the sort of place you would enjoy, go to the Book your Retreat page now to check availability. It is a good idea to do this first – before booking your travel arrangements. Then you can firm things up with us when you have found the best flight or ferry ticket for you.
