Retreat location

Crescent-shaped Santorini is considered the precious gem of the Aegean. With its white-washed cliff top villages set against the deep blue sky, multicolored beaches, vast volcanic vineyards, crystal clear waters and world famous sunsets, it is easy to fall under the spell of this magical, mythical island.

The island exploded into being - the result of 12 huge eruptions over 20,000 years - with the collapsing volcano creating a huge caldera (crater) in the sea. You can even scuba dive in this giant lagoon, to adventure into the crater and discover for yourself whats left of the opening of the volcano.

Your retreat home of Oia is located high up on what is considered the balcony of Santorini. Oia is known for its amazing views of the volcano. Just two kilometers from the beach with inspiring walks and views all around, this is a chance to truly unwind and explore the many facets of beautiful Santorini.

The culture, architecture, geography and gastronomy of Santorini are all reasons to visit in themselves. You can head down to the crystalline coast to take a cooling dip in the deep blue waters and enjoy the stunning beaches with white, red or black sand, spectacular rock formations and impressive lunar landscapes. Stroll through traditional villages, with narrow streets leading you on an adventure through time gone by.

Treat your taste buds to the tantalizing local food, with a whole host of delicious products to sample - some of it coming straight to your table from the organic garden of your Greek host, Antonis. It doesnt get much more authentic than this.

The sublime setting of Santorini will fire you up for an incredible week of wellbeing. Adding exceptional instruction, delicious organic food and excellent company to the equation this is the perfect retreat location.
