We're sorry to report that Aegean Tour Travel is no longer
Following the closing of Aegean Tour Travel, we decided to pursue
the Wellness part of our travel business, to become less commercial and
to support local charities whenever possible. By chance, in 2002 we
had purchased a twenty-two hectare Olive Grove just eight kilometers from our home
in the hillside village of Comlekci, (Chomlekchi),
So we decided to develop our Olive Grove into a meditation and
Wellbieng Center.. After 15 months of hard work by a team of
volunteers we opened our new hillside Yoga and Meditation Retreat
set among 600, now very happy, olive trees.
The Fraser's Olive Garden
retreat was establisshed, the full website is
We welcome everyone who is aware that there is something missing
in their life and is looking to improve their lifestyle. This goal
can be acheived
through the disciplines embodied in the practices of Yoga, Meditation and Breathing
coordination with other healing therapies.
In July 2020 the initial works were commenced on the site, first we
drilled a well for water which we found at a depth of 240 meters. We
were now able to commence the construction of an 850 meter natural stone
boundary wall that incorporated a two storey stone tower for a site
office and water depot next to the main entrance.
Our olive trees must have appreciated the care and attention we were now giving them; they
have rewarded us several crops of olives that have produced oil of a
quality that was awarded a Gold Medal at the Olive Fair in the
regional capital of Mugla.
During the first 18 months we completed the construction of three 'forest' houses for guest accommodation and a ninety square meter Yoga Studio. In tandem with the construction works we completed a considerable amount of landscaping works including the planting of
fifty more olive trees and a variety of fruit trees. Our vegetable gardens have also made us almost self sufficient in vegetables.
In addition to the work carried out by our tradesmen, we owe a special gratitude to the many 'WorkAway' volunteers
who came to us from all over the world (despite the punitive
lockdown restrictions) and helped us not only with their labors and suggestions, but with their very presence.
During the early stages of the projects development our requirements
were for volunteers interested in construction works, cooking,
domestic works and
gardening, but as the the site has developed we encouraged volunteers
also interested in marketing, website and social media promotion.
Our retreat serves only vegan and vegetarian meals using our ownn
and locally sourced vegetables and we encourage healthy eating as
part of our nutrition program.
We're Open For All Peaceful
Our retreat is now open to anyone seeking some respite from the madness
currently circling the world, whether it's to join one of our
alternative therapy courses, to learn the principles of meditation, to take part in a 'self-discovery'
Silent Retreat, (shh) or to just relax for a day or two, (or more),
doing nothing but reading a book.
We even have an 'Indoctrination Detox' program, recommended for
everyone, irrespective of whichever country you were 'programmed'
