The retreat place is located on the Lower Olympus Mountain, near the picturesque village of Palaios Panteleimon, which in Greek means “The All-Compassionate One”. The land is surrounded by woods of chestnuts, oaks and arbutus and is overlooking the Gulf of Thermaikos and the Aegean Sea in the distance. Part of the magnificent view by the sea is the Castle of Platamon, an old Crusaders castle built between 1204 and 1222, located in a strategic position. The tower, which overlooks the highway, is an imposing medieval fortress.

It is a land of modest area size (4.300 m2) which includes a half-finished building. There is a three-storey incomplete building of 210m2. It has 51 windows and a veranda with an amazing view. The frame and outer walls are good enough and all the rest needs to be done.
