Venue: Mithimna Beach
This is a delightful laid-back village comprising a scattering of studios, apartments and a couple of excellent tavernas right by the beach and countryside. The beach stretches for miles (sand and shingle) for those wanting to beachcomb or walk all the way to the town of Kastelli. The campsite taverna at Mithimna Beach is a particular favourite with David both for the food and the friendly staff – we had our wedding party there. Best of all in 2012 the owners of the Mousses Studios which we use for most of our accommodation built us a lovely quiet yoga space with an Iyengar style yoga wall. This is a really lovely quiet space and received full marks last year from both teachers and students.
While Mithimna is a remote village it is within easy reach of town by either bus or taxi and it is just 25 minutes walk along the coast to a fabulous pool, overlooking the sea - it is free of charge for you.
Nopigia Pool - a quiet coastal walk from Mithimna Beach
One or two locals still bring their donkeys and goats down to pasture while they work their fields. Ten minutes walk inland is the village of Drapanias with other tavernas, two bakeries, some shops and the bus stop for Kastelli or Chania. One of the bakeries sells confectionary and ice cream and we can highly recommend it!
Spacious, cool and quiet Mithimna Beach’s new yoga space – right by Mousses Studios, close to the beach.
New teachers – if you would like to teach here then there are still some weeks available for 2013 – please Contact us.
Accommodation and new yoga space:
At Mithimna Beach we have chosen the best of the local studios and apartments for you with well-designed rooms, gardens and views of the sea and mountains. Our first choices are Mousses Studios, which are modern, well appointed set in a fine garden. The rooms have balconies that look towards the sea. This is where the new yoga space is making Mithimna Beach a true yoga centre. For those who like to be right by the sea there is also Yellow Windows studios; more quirky but many people really like it. We offer camping here too, since Mithimna campsite is close by – just bring a tent, contact us for a discount price.
All rooms have kitchenettes, balconies and air conditioning.
Mousses Studios – there are 8 studios/apartments in 4 blocks set in their own garden.
The view from Yellow Windows Studios – a block of 4 studios – two face the sea and two have mountain views.
