Your Hosts

Maria Avgitidis & Chrisoula Mavrianos

You probably already know Maria and Chrisoula from the Agape Intensive as they have spent more than nine hours with you! Our inaugural retreat under Agape Escapes is a way to give back to our graduates who, at a time where it was hard to hope and plan, shared similar goals of meeting the right person. The retreat is an opportunity to meet new people and further expand your respective networks. Maria and Chrisoula want to continue to empower all of you and your endeavors with this unique immersive and bonding retreat.

See you in Crete!


Our Team 

This experience is built around creating community and commraderee among our guests while also having full access to the entire Agape Team. The Agape Team wants our guests to experience a week like no other-- where they have the support of dating and relationship experts while creating friendships with like minded women that will last a lifetime.


There will be a professional photographer with us all week snapping photos not only to commemorate the experience but to also give our guests great photos to use online.

Get ready to have the best week of your life!

The Hotel

Testimonials from Past Retreats

At the welcome dinner for Escape to Paros 2023, Maria said "you don't know it, but you've just met your 30 new best friends" and she could not have been more right. The unbelievable sights, activities, food and locations were made so much more special by connecting with a group of incredibly positive women that have become lifelong friends.

Kristin G.

I signed up for Paros on an absolute leap of faith and repeatedly described it before I left as the "craziest thing I've ever done" (meaning getting on a plane by myself to a country I'd never been to with a "bunch of strangers"). After returning, I describe it as the BEST thing I've ever done and tell everyone all about my new best friends (and hype squad). So much so, that going forward I will look back at my life as BP (Before Paros) and AP (After Paros). In the week I've been back, I have lost count of how many people have commented on my glow (and not just the fabulous tan!) The itinerary was the perfect mix of adventure and relaxation, and the energy was contagious - you will never find a more positive, woman-empowering, FUN adventure and I am eternally grateful for this extraordinary experience Maria and the entire Agape Team have developed.

Diana S.

Escape2Paros was more than I could have imagined! The Agape Team is so wonderful. They truly care about each and every woman on the trip and take time to speak to each of us about not only our dating and relationship goals but what we want out of life in general. Amazing friendships are formed on this trip and cannot wait to continue those friendships now that we are all home. You feel like you are getting such an authentic Grecian experience with Maria, Chrisoula and Anna Maria who have so much first hand knowledge. We got to have experiences that just wouldn't be possible when planning a trip on your own. The trip was magical and for me transformative and life changing. I could not have imaged a better experience.

This trip exceeded all of my expectations, the attention to detail, and how organized everything was truly made it a carefree vacation, not to mention who could not have a great time on the Greek islands. The true gift of the experience was truly that community and the lifelong friendships I created.
