Why come to Othona?


For a wide range of workshops, retreats and family holidays?

Stay for a weekend or up to a week. Creativity, relaxation, contemplation, learning, fun – all part of the Othona experience.


You yearn for a greater sense of community?

Welcome and acceptance have been hallmarks of Othona since 1946. With us you're not just a guest but part of a community.


You want a spirituality for today and tomorrow?

People of all faiths and none love Othona. We honour our Christian roots but draw on other traditions too. We encourage an adult spirituality: down-to-earth, light-hearted, not afraid of change.


You've heard it's beautiful here?

It is! Our untamed ecologically managed grounds overlook a deserted beach – just 15 minutes walk through woods and meadows.
