Lynne - who books most of our holidays, our guest teachers and David and Juliet, who've been creating holidays since 1996
New this year: Peli Pateromichalakis, who manages Peli Hotel, one of our venues is now part of West Crete Holidays.
If you would like to teach here in West Crete we have a few vacant weeks for your holiday - please contact us.
Be re-assured, on all our holidays we offer you a range of health and lifestyle therapies to help you really relax and to get the most out of your holiday.
However, we'd like to tell you a little about the area – followed by an overview of our Yoga & Discovery Holidays and Simply Accommodation choices and our health work.
While we are away from mass tourism, Chania town and Samaria Gorge are still in easy reach.
Yoga & Discovery Holidays
We offer Yoga Holidays with a selection of teachers offering lots of different styles including:
Our Discovery Holidays are of two types:
Yoga and Walks
If you would like a yoga holiday with walks every day these are offered in May and October by Solos Holiday where Juliet teaches the yoga element of the holidays. For the dates please see our Programme and for more information visit the web site shown there.
Our holidays are held at Mavros Molos Beach or at Mithimna Beach (part of the long strand) and at our home, the Old Olive Mill just 30 minutes walk or an easy bike ride to the beach. Sometimes we link Mithimna Beach with the Mill to get the best of both beach and retreat.

You may just want to relax and recharge your batteries or come with family and friends, knowing that you will enjoy our gentle support.
You can stay in our Stafilia House, meaning ‘to friends’ where we offer away-from-home living. There are both indoor and outdoor living spaces so you can enjoy the fine climate to the full. Stafilia is near to the Mill, where we live, and is divided into a spacious studio and an apartment. You're near the beach and mountains with nature at its best – easy walks and bird watching right from your doorstep and quiet beaches nearby.
We also have a Search Service for hotel/rooms: just tell us what you require: rooms/ambience etc.

Treatments & Health
Many people come to us wanting better health, more energy, less stress or a coping strategy for their busy lives: ‘Stop the merry-go-round – I want to get off’ is how Juliet sometimes describes it.
Our professional qualifications include aromatherapy and lymph drainage massage and Kinesiology. Our forte is in our ability to listen, the depth of our understanding and our ability to provide treatments which are effective in the short time you have with us – your holiday.
Our supportive service to you is deepened by the peace and stillness that exists, particularly at the Mill and Stafilia House, and through our own extensive yoga and meditation practice.
