Ecologic Dark Retreat House in Czech Republic

ecologic dark retreat house
We would like to invite you to our brand new dark retreat house. It’s in Phendeling deep inside a forest in southern Bohemia, close to the Austrian and German border. We’ve built it exclusively from natural materials (wood, straw, earth) creating a very relaxing, peaceful and healthy ambience inside. The house is designed for comfort and is suitable even for longer stays in the dark as there is a lot of space, big bathroom, state of the art ventilation system, etc. Another important feature is a high level of sound insulation.

It can host a normal retreat as well since it features kitchen, fridge, windows with a nice view, terrace and a mandala in the main building of the centre.

Come to practice in Phendeling!
