Levinthos, Retreat Centre
Levinthos is a brand new Retreat centre and a small family ran business. It is located in a secluded part of the bay of Lentas, known from the ancient times for its unique healing energy. Lentas is protected as an archaeological site and as a result no big hotels can be found there. This has preserved the outstanding natural beauty and serenity of the area. The Rooms Levinthos offers 4 luxury en suite flats and 4 studios next to the Yoga Shala, and just a minute away from a beautiful secluded beach. They are all double glazed and equipped with an ecological air-condition based on “geothermia”. Each flat and studio has a fully equipped kitchenette, bathroom and a front shaded garden. The Cafe-Restaurant Close to the Yoga shala is the cafe-reastaurant of Levinthos. With stunning views to the Libyan sea here you can enjoy your meals, use free Wi-Fi and chill out. Live music nights and jam sessions will be taking place here at dinner time ! The food Food is mostly locally farmed and organic, freshly prepared and served in generous portions! Dishes are mainly vegetarian but we can also provide meat meals or delicious freshly fished fish. Please let us know if you have any special requirements (vegan, dairy free, gluten free).
