Family Community Holiday for Single or Coupled Parents with Maria McCarthy

August 3rd – 10th ’18 – Price: €350 (£290) per week




Kids and parents get the chance to run wild for a week of fun and friendship on the Family Community Holiday.

Our mountainside forest community has a daily rhythm, which goes something like this.
After a delicious buffet breakfast, we gather in the forest Long Room for a sharing circle
then songs, dancing and games. Later in the morning after a fruit break, we craft
together. Things we have loved are building a primitive pottery kiln, making and firing
ceramic jewellery, helping a local family to build their cob house, wind wands for the little
ones and dream catchers for the older ones. We have taken a meditative walk in the
forest and painted our experience on a beautiful group mural. This year we hope to be
upcycling. We encourage and support parents and children to join in with these arts and
crafts, but most of all, we want you to be yourself and enjoy!

After lunch, we head down the mountain to the Aegean for an afternoon of splashing in
the beautiful blue sea or resting in the shade.

On our return from the beach, some of us join the community to help out with the
cooking or watering of the gardens. Others hang out on the hammocks and others join
in activities.

Our evening vegetarian banquet is followed by a cleanup party and then the evening
usually unfolds in candlelit song, chat and fun. On Tuesday night we go to a taverna,
which is not included in the cost of the holiday and is preceded by a good dance in the
Long Room. We hope to walk down the mountainside to sleep on the beach for one
