Stay with us

If you would like to meet us and spend some time at the Sanctuary of Joy, you have a few options:

Day visits

You can come to meet us and/or take advantage of specific services we deliver (i.e. card reading, Reiki session, relationship consultation, etc).
If you also wish to stay for lunch and eat with us, we ask a donation of €10 per person.
It is necessary to contact us beforehand (a few days earlier is usually OK) and agree on the day and time of your appointment.

Eco tourism (prolonged stay)

Unless specified differently, during a prolonged stay we don’t have a fixed/precise planning for each day. Activities and rest periods naturally alternate and flow, based on the situation and the energy of each day. In some periods (especially when the weather is good and with some advance planning) we can organize and take you to nature and archaeological walks in the surroundings.
During your stay you can of course also take advantage of the services we offer (i.e. card reading, Reiki session, relationship consultation, etc).

Daily fees are as follows:
€ 40/day/person including stay, breakfast and two meals
Kids under 3 years who sleep with their parents can stay for free; in case they need their own bed: 20 €/day/kid
kids between 3 and 6 years: 30 €/day/kid

If you are interested or want to know more, please contact us.

Work Exchange

You can come to help us work on our projects and stay with us for free (includes accommodation and meals).
To participate in a work exchange, we expect a minimum commitment of 4 days.
Different projects and work to be done depends on the needs of the moment and can vary. For example: in autumn we will be collecting olives and hazel nuts and then pruning those trees; in spring we will need to collect cherries and keep the grass from growing too tall; in winter there will be more wood to carry in order to keep the stoves running, and so on.
There are some ongoing, routine activities such as cooking, babysitting, cleaning, de-weeding, watering the plants, sorting out wood, etc; in specific periods we might need help with construction and restructuring work.
It is expected that you have an ability to adapt, you are versed into working and collaborating with other people, don’t mind sharing resources and spaces.
Previous experience in farming, recycling, woodworking, building and plumbing are welcome, but not necessary.
Current needs and dates will be agreed beforehand.
We also reserve to evaluate each request based on the period and what activities are planned for that time.
Note that we don’t accept minors for work exchange, even if authorized by their parents.
During your stay you can of course also take advantage of the services we offer (i.e. card reading, Reiki session, relationship consultation, etc).
If you are interested or want to know more, please contact us.

Specific Events

Occasionally we plan specific events such as Reiki courses, Spiritual retreats and more. Keep an eye on our newsletter or on our Facebook page to be informed about those.

General notes

We cook vegetarian/vegan food.
Specific diet needs need to be communicated upfront.
It is possible to place your own tent on our field, or we might ask you to share one of our own tents with other people.
We all share the same bathroom/restroom facilities.
Pets are currently not allowed (while we love animals, we have animals ourselves, including several cats and a dog who might not like to share their ‘territory’).
We are on a hill, in the countryside, close to forests: this means that, for how much we can strive to keep everything tidy, there will still be dust and ground even in ‘closed’ space. We have pets (cats, dogs, hens, rabbits) and there are also wild animals roaming the land (especially at night) and insects. Please consider this information before deciding to come visit us, especially in cases you are affected by allergies for animals or for dust.
