The location of ARTISA is in Epidaurus (northeast Peloponnese) on a beautiful, very quiet spot by the sea in Greece. The environment is exceptionally beautiful, supportive and inspiring. In this famous, sacred area with a great history, the energy of Greek philosophers, scholars and artists like Hippocrates, Socrates and Homer is still tangible.
The retreat consists of ten single-occupancy spacious studios where you can work as late or early as you wish. Each studio has its private bathroom, workplace, large private balcony with seaview, and Wi-Fi.
The building is set in a beautiful large garden with flowers and an orchard with orange, lemon and olive trees. The garden has direct access to the adjoining beach and the sea.

Sea and nature
This natural setting as well as the Mediterranean climate, the light and silence invite you to work inside and outside the building. The rhythm of the waves may very well inspire you. A walk along the coast or a dive into the sea can help to relax and approach your work with a distance. You can also take a bike-ride to traverse the natural surroundings.
Cultural and healing centre
In ancient times, it was a well-known healing place and its Sanctuary of Asklepios a popular destination for pilgrims. The ancient theater of Epidavros, one of the best preserved amphitheaters of classical antiquity, is still in use today and draws visitors from all over the world. This sphere in which science, philosophy and art, people and nature meet, is the perfect place for ARTISA.
'My time was spent in the scenic surrounds of lush gardens filled with brightly coloured fragrant plants, leading to the beach and the crystal clear blue sea. The place is so secluded that the only sounds you'll hear are from nature, and so this place of paradise is all the more perfect for time spent on creative work.' C. M
