Further Information

We have two beautiful accommodation options in Pinakates, the Pinakoti Lodge and the Efipoi apartments. Both are utterly gorgeous and we’ll find the best option for you. Workshops will take place at Pinakoti.

Mobile phone reception and internet connectivity, while present, are not of great quality. This is because the gods of the Greek mountains decided you should be writing on your writing retreat, and not streaming Youtube videos.

Unfortunately, the retreat is not wheelchair accessible. Efipoi is a ten minute walk from Pinakoti Lodge (where the workshops will be held), and the route is rather steep. Please email us on jane@thereaderberlin.com if you have any physical limitations and are interested in attending, and we can advise you.

This is a good guide to the region.
