Back, all newly inspired and energized after two weeks at Artisa. It was awesome: I made great progress on my PhD and in the meantime enjoyed the best weather I ever enjoyed in October, plus the best service/food I enjoyed in any month, met great people, and saw beautiful places in Greece.
Sounds like a strange, but intriguing, possibly optimal, combination? I can greatly recommend Artisa to anyone, doesn't get any better than this.'  F. Leoné, PhD student 

'I spent one week at Artisa in June, and it was the most enjoyable, peaceful yet productive week I have ever experienced. When I arrived, I was astounded by the beauty of the whole place, and by the end of the week I didn't want to leave.' C. Marshall, journalist
