The ESA - perfect venue for your retreat

Looking for something truly remarkable for your next board or executive retreat? Interested in mixing some luxurious relaxation with a dash of inspirational sustainable thinking?

The ESA building is available to hire for executive retreats or other similar events.


You get a fully fitted, operational lecture room along with a dining room – both for up to 50 people. You will be supported by our office of 4 support staff with a choice of menus for food available and exclusive use of the ESA grounds.

On-site accommodation is due to be built, but there is luxury accommodation available in the local community.



Time and space to reflect, think and plan is at a premium for all successful business leaders. You already know about the value of an executive retreat in helping you to plan the future for your business. But isn't it time you looked at how that strategy, as well as securing your business a commercially successful future, ensured that it survives the increasingly urgent demands for sustainability?

Make sense of sustainability

Crete is the sustainable destination of the past and of the future.

You can have your own authentic experience of a sustainable lifestyle and feel first-hand the strong connection between nature and community.
