Retreats in Greece

Programs for organisations and private individuals

ARTISA Academic & Art Retreat connects people to their authenticity, wisdom and creativity. We are passionate about creating a supportive environment for people to flourish, to explore and to create. The location right at the seaside is a big plus.
Quinx facilitates a Time-out retreat at Artisa


This is a retreat for people who long for inner peace and insight. In the retreat you will learn how to become ‘bigger’ than the hectic rush of everyday life, and how to re-kindle your soul and awaken your authentic rhythm and expression.
 The retreat is for people who work (too) hard and want to stop and stand for a while on the sidelines of their life.

Open retreats at Artisa

Our writing retreats for academics, PhD students, artists and other professionals offer you the possibility to concentrate on writing, creating, reflecting in a sustained way, to recharge your battery, and to gain new inspiration.
Join others who became inspired and got their work done.

“I have never experienced this combination of really relaxing and getting so much work done.” Vera Sch., UD Rotterdam

Creative writing

Bettina Drion will guide a creative writing week at Artisa from 30 April to 6 May. This will be conducted in Dutch.


Whether you are a scientist, artist, entrepreneur, or other professional, one of the most valuable and powerful things you can do for yourself and your company is to take a sabbatical. We need time away to reflect, dream, focus, write, get sparkling ideas, and take new steps.
We support you by our tailor-made professional coaching and practical care. Also by the beauty of the place, the energy, inspiration and silence that is present.For more info click here.

  • We moeten jullie bedanken voor het creëren van deze plek. Er is zoveel conflict en negativiteit in de wereld en hier is zoveel schoonheid. Wanneer je hier komt wordt het leven mooi.
    Ik heb geïnspireerd geschreven en tegelijkertijd uitgerust. Bijzonder mooie combinatie. Het was een fantastische ervaring.
    Prof. dr. Halleh Ghorashi, Professor in Diversiteit en Integratie, Sociologie, VU Amsterdam
  •  I don’t want to sound overly dramatic, but my stay at ARTISA has been like 2 weeks in paradise. I have never experienced this combination of really relaxing and getting so much work done. Next year I will make sure to come back – it’s so much fun and also such an efficient use of my time! The structure of the program was perfect: a good combination of physical exercise, amazing and healthy food and the coaching.

  • De coachingsessies hebben mij geholpen ‘uit het hoofd naar het hart’ te gaan, meer open te staan en te voelen wat mijn werkelijke behoeftes zijn. Wat ik fijn vond was dat Celeste niet met voorbedachte modellen aan de slag gaat maar aansluit bij wat ik op dat moment nodig had. Ik voelde me thuis, ik kon mijzelf zijn, ben getroffen door de betrokkenheid en oprechte belangstelling, van hart tot hart. Ottoline K., orthopedagoog
