Wine & Olive Oil Retreat – December 2022

wine and olive oil retreat EVIA

We, Nikos and Georgia, the people of Writers’ Retreats in Greece have decided to take another step forward and start offering small groups retreats (8-10 people).

Hence, we have initiated a solid network of locals who have one thing in common.

We come from Evia, we grow up in Evia, we love Evia.

So, we have joined forces to create Evia Retreats.

Evia Retreats is a fresh initiative to bridge the gap between the people who decide to visit Evia -but have a little or no idea what this non-advertised destination has to offer- with the small business owners who are offering accommodation, transportation, F&B and recreation services and doing their best for the people who choose to visit our island.

Those who have visited our retreats and have stayed in our spaces have a good idea about our passion and true love about hospitality! So, you know what to expect 😉

Those who have not done it yet, are more than welcome to come join us and experience first hand what Evia is all about and who is Nikos & Georgia!
