Fantastic yoga in mountain village
Aug 2016 • Friends
Intimate atmosphere in the beautiful mountain village of Schinokapsala. Antonios and Alessandra did their outmost to satisfy our needs and discover the beautiful area. In addition to the great yoga (fantastic teacher, in very small class), we got several days relaxing on the beach (reacheable 20 minutes by car and 1:30-2 hours on foot), visited local markets, hiked in the butterfly forest and made an excursion to Koufonisi island - a must do! Alessandra and Antonios are adorable hosts and as we lived in the retreat (to compare to available village/beach villas), we were living next doors and sharing bathroom. The retreat is still fairly new but will surely develop soon! We wish them all the best!
Love & light,

I first me these two characters in Lanzarote - they befriended a lovely freind of mine called Alison who is a very spiritual soul. Apprently they wanted to organise a spiritual day in Lanzarote - this didn't take off - I should of known then.

Anthonios (actually Anthony who was born in the midllands UK) added me to skype so me being a trustworthy person started chatting to him.

He talked about owning this magnificent retreat in Crete with all types of amazing workshops including yoga for example.

I explained that me and my mother were looking to go to some form of retreat and he said his retreat was the perfect place.

Me and my mum decided to go and try it out. God me and my mother must be quite naive.

He gave us a price saying that staying for a week in the retreat was £200 in May 2016.

This was around April 2016 so my mum suggested that we pay when we got there so I informed this anthony chap we will pay on arrival.

Anthony came back straight away and said it must be booked now because other people will claim the accomodation on that day. So me being quite impulsive sent him £200 by paypal. He wrote back saying youre going to have a a great time love Anthony and Alessandra his partner in crime.

After a few weeks i received a message from this Anthony saying that for some reason we have been moved to another accomodation by the beach and sent pics of this apartment. He said it wasn't far from the retreat so we could still visit.

The pictures looked really nice so me and my mother weren't too fussed.
In May 2016 we finally got to heraklion airport in Crete and when we got outside i called anthony and he said he will pick us up and don't worry.

We waited 3 hours for this character to turn up with his partner in crime but he was all full of smiles saying we were going to have a great time. He told us previously that him and Alessandra were getting married so his mum was over and her freind Irene.

Anthony took us to a bar on the way to the accomodation and said the fuel cost him 20m euros so i gave him the 20 euros. We ordered drinks and like a fool i paid for his and her drinks.

We explained that we were tired after travelling and he dropped us off at Revans Bar where the owner a lovely man called George showed us our rooms.

Anthony said he would be in touch.

A few nights later me and my mother were having a beer with George as you do at the bar and out of the conversation came to the accomodation. We said it was lovely and were glad that it had all been paid for. George looked at us and said nothing had been paid for. Apparently Anthony blagged george to book the room for us without even paying a deposit - A big lesson for George too.

So bascially Anthony and Alessandra had spent the money we had sent them so me and my mother (who was furious) had two pay george 240 Euros. Me and my mother had been conned by Alsessandra and anthony.

Me and my mother walked to his mothers apartment. I confronted him and he said don't worry he will sort it out.

Apparently Anthony is very good at saying don't worry and this is his neo motto.

As all this was happening me and my mum stated becoming good freinds with Irene.

Irene and his mother were there for the wedding. PLease note that the wedding was all a bunch of lies and wasn't happening.

It turns out that Anthony had been a conman all his life and at one point demanded that his mother take out a £10,000 loan out in her name and he never paid his mother back and disappeard for 7 years.

It also transpired that at this time they had a yoga client working for them at this so called retreat with one client thay had and they didn't pay the yoga teacher either. Apparently this teacher went balisitic when they couldn't pay and started shouting and smasing things up.

Alison later informed me that Anthony and Alsessandra left lanzarote owing people money too so there you have it.

Before we left Anthony said again.,don't worry we will get our money. It is now The end of July. They have sent us 76 euros who thay probably conned somebody out of that and now he completely ignore my messages.

This is the truth and you have been warned.

Please contact me on my mobile if you need to discuss the nature of these people .

John Hook.
