ABOUΤ THE PLACE : (Lykos - South Chania – Crete)

We choose to run our y.t.t.c in the southern Chania region. In a small simple fishing village, where the energy is pure and serene, and the beautiful natural environment fits in yoga philosophy, just 3 steps away from the beach and the crystal clear waters of the Libyan sea.

Your flight lands at the prefecture of Chania, the westernmost regional unit of Crete, which is one of the most beautiful destinations in Greece.

The old town of Chania is considered to be one of the most beautiful spots on Crete, with its jewel - the charming old Venetian harbour of Chania, an ideal place for a morning coffee, sightseeing, romantic walks , shopping and nightlife.

From Chania airport and after a 70 km route (1,5 hrs) towards the southern edge of Europe you can reach Chora Sfakion and Loutro. Ferries run between Hora Sfakion and Loutro every one hour during the summer season.

Loutro is a small picturesque seaside resort village located on the south coast of the prefecture of Chania, in the region of Sfakia.

Here there are no roads or car traffic, and apart from the ferry that comes and leaves, you will see small boats used either for pleasure or transportation, as the village is only accessible from the sea (or walking).

Here you will find shops, restaurants and ferry connections.

From Loutro on a 10 minute boat ride around the headland or a 20 minute walk you can reach Lykos beach in a sheltered, car-free bay. It’s where our Yoga Center is located.

From our base – Center you can explore the beautiful coast line and beaches and the walking trails along the coast, in the famous Cretan gorges nearby and into the mountains behind. The local area is a heaven for wildlife including rare birds and spectacular Cretan flowers.

There are many beautiful coastal, mountain and gorge walks that start right from our Center.

The entrance to the Aradena Gorge is just 1km away on the beautiful Marmara beach and it is open to visitors all year round.

Our accommodation is located in “Akrogiali” rooms with a variety of double, single, twin and triple rooms. All of the rooms overlook the sea, have balconies and attached bathrooms with solar heaters for hot showers.

In the front garden of Akrogiali rooms there is a traditional restaurant, where a friendly Cretan family is preparing vegetarian meals for us daily, using traditional Cretan and Mediterranean recipes.

Our yoga shala is located in the village of Livaniana with a panoramic view of the sea and Lykos beach.
