Unsettled: Crete

See Dates

Work Remotely in Crete this October.

Welcome to Crete, where Unsettled is taking over a beachfront villa to squeeze every bit of summer out of 2024. The air and water temperatures will be in the mid-70s F (low 20s C). You'll enjoy a spacious room with fast WiFi, a private workspace, and a coworking area to stay productive. Step outside and you're 50 meters from the beach, 50 meters from restaurants, and 1km from town center. This retreat is built on 3 pillars: Remote Work: Ample time and space to be productive and creative. Local Adventures: We love a good hike, local meals, and vineyards equally. The Unsettled Experience: Unexpected conversations, workshops, and events. We host only a select number of these signature coworking retreats each year, so act soon!

The Unsettled Experience

From time to time, you'll hear us say, "The Unsettled Experience”. Here's what we mean by that:

Unsettled does more than guide people down a trail in the wilderness. 

Before you ever hop on a plane, we meet online (in the interactive Unsettled style) and walk through an adventure-inspired workshop. 

While you're on your trip, we have a series of dinners and discussions designed to guide you on a unique journey. The goal is to get you to step outside of your routine, expand your perspective, and articulate what calls you, inspires, and engages you in this world. 

Many alumni say continuing the purpose-driven journey through our workshops and community engagement is the best part. As an Unsettled alumni, you can join our quarterly meetups and workshops online with our community from around the world.

Unsettled: Crete Highlights



Unsettled will run our world-renowned workshops, lunch and learns, family-style dinners, happy hours, and facilitate some inspiring, fireside magic. Ask our alumni about it; this is one of the most unexpected aspects of our trips.



Our rooms are set up to live and work with ease. We have WiFi throughout our villa (20-30 Mbps). Each room will have a desk so you can take calls in privacy or join us in the coworking space we'll have set up onsite, where you can work in a more social setting.



The Unsettled Crete Experience includes lots of local adventures. We’re going on a full-day boat trip to Balos Beach (one of the world’s top beaches); a road trip by rental car and/or motorbikes across western Crete; an afternoon trip to a local vineyard; and lots of food (a hands-on cooking class, a Greek BBQ, and much more).

14 nights in your private room in our beach side villa in Kissamos Bay, Crete

The Unsettled Experience - workshops, conversations, and insights our alumni have come to love

You're responsible for covering the cost and organization of your flights to Crete, visa (if needed), any alcohol you choose to drink, snacks and beverages, 6 dinners, 6 lunches, and pocket money for shopping, gifts, tips, and your own adventures

Western Crete

Slow down. You don't want to rush this.

When most people think of Crete they see the beautiful Greek beaches and their alluring blue waters and they're not wrong, but there's so much more to it!

We want to hear stories from locals, share drinks with the shop owner, and invite over local friends to dinner at our place. 

We're unafraid to slow down and hit pause on our chaotic routines back home.

That's why we're staying two weeks in a small beachside town during Crete's best season. 

The summer rush is over, and that's exactly how we want it. 

Western Crete


Unsettled Crete is for remote workers looking to step outside of their routine, have some fun, and love to travel and gain perspective on life. 

Unsettled is for the deeply curious, emotionally intelligent, and globally-minded working professional. We are 35 - 60 ish. As a community, we come from 80+ countries, speak multiple languages, and seek diversity in all its forms. This community is for you if you welcome - and even seek to attract - inclusive, diverse, and deeply curious humans in your life.

Unsettled Crete is in Kissamos Bay, on the northwest corner of Crete. Our villa is beachfront, a 5-minute walk from the center of our village, and within 45 minutes of several of Crete’s most famous beaches, towns, and an international airport.

Unsettled's pricing depends on when you sign up. We have early bird pricing until June 15th. After that, the cost goes up by $100 USD. See our current pricing here.

We recommend that you budget $300  - $500 USD in pocket money for the trip, but this can vary widely based on how you eat and the additional activities you do while in Crete. You can have a great dinner and glass of wine for 12-15 euros, prepare your own dinner for just a few euros (there's a kitchen in our villa), or easily spend 50 euros for a nice meal out depending on your budget.

Quite a bit! A private room. A dedicated workspace. Breakfast. 5 lunches. 6 dinners. Airport transfers. A visit to a local winery. A local adventure to one of the top beaches in the world by boat. Unsettled programming and workshops. An Unsettled Global Experience leader is on-site facilitating the trip.

Your flights are not included. You will cover 7 dinners and 8 lunches and your own snacks or additional food. There's a kitchen at our villa, you can order in, and we will even do a grocery run and stock your fridge before you arrive. Unsettled does not cover any alcoholic drinks on the trip.

Yes. It’s half-price for your partner.  

Your retreat starts on Saturday, October 12th. You can get to Kissamos Bay on your own on the afternoon of October 12th, or you can fly into Chania International Airport (about 1 hour away from our villa). We will provide shuttles from Chania International Airport at 2 pm; 5 pm; and 8 pm on October 12th (times to be confirmed in early October).

If you arrive early, we recommend you stay a night in the gorgeous town of Chania and our airport shuttle can pick you up at 2:30pm on Saturday, October 12th.
