Accommodation

Some wild landscapes can be so beautiful that nothing can stop you from getting there. Located in a slope and shaped by man-made geometrical stone-built rows you can barely feel what is design and what is nature. The land blends harmoniously into the physical buildings.

Kastellas is a serene, secluded beach at the South-west side of Kythnos next to the Flabouria seaside settlement. The ancient remnants of the little castle that used to be on the top of the hill adds a sacred sense in the wilderness of the surroundings.

Wilderness at its best

K4 team developed a sustainable complex of four independent villas and two houses each of them gazing the crystal clear waters of Kastellas beach with an open plan outdoor lounge area with an infinity pool. Four villas consist of an open space living room, kitchen and dining room, three bedrooms, and two bathrooms. Two suites are equipped with small kitchen and bathroom.

The participants of the retreat share one or more of the three-bedroom villas and the two suites. Service includes:

  • Free Wi-Fi
  • Access to common areas (swimming pool and pool patio)
  • Bed linen and towels
  • Cleaning twice a week

Program

The connection of mind and body

The golden thread flowing through the physical, mental, and spiritual aspects of yoga forms the foundation of this retreat. The unison or connection of mind and body focuses on an all-encompassing approach to wellness, from the inside out and outside in.

Body

Working on transitions and how to move in and out of poses with ease. Enjoying the capabilities of your body. Budokon techniques are applied to support transitions, helping you to build strength and control over your body.

Mind

Connecting your mind and body as one, learning to honor your personal journey and appreciate your wellbeing. Learning to enjoy the present moment (on this beautiful island) without comparison to others.

Spirit

Observing the subtleties of yoga and the scope of positive effects while practicing. In Sanskrit, the word yoga itself means “union” - unfolding the endless potential of mind, body, and sprit that enables you to achieve pure mental and physical control, healing, and wellbeing.

Included excursions

Visit to Dryopida Village

In the central part of the island, you will find the largest village of Kythnos island, which is Dryopida. As you enter, you can see the sizeable neighborhood of Galatas, which offers a glimpse of its very distinct architecture, with its tiled roofs and

labyrinthine alleys.

Continuing the tour through the narrow streets, you will see the largest church on the island, Agia Anna, Kythnos’s version of the Athens Metropolis. Crossing the main street, the so called 'piazza', you will greet and meet the Greek ladies of the village, sat there drinking their coffee and gossiping the island’s news.

The next stop is the enchanting cave of Katafyki, one of the largest in Greece. To finish the walking tour, you will visit first of all the Byzantine Museum, with its rare and famous collection of Orthodox icons from previous centuries, followed by a trip to the Folk Museum where you learn about the lives of Kythnos people from days gone by, both rich and poor.

  • Trail distance: 2 kilometers

Retreat location

Looking for authentic island living? For remote beaches that even in August you can swim like nobody’s watching For unspoiled seashores away from the noise of beach bars? For whitewashed villages where people still live on their traditions?

Then, you are at the right place!

Kythnos is Cyclades’ hidden gem, still unspoiled by mass tourism and known for its magnificent 100-kilometer coastline of sandy and pebble spread bays. It belongs to the Western Cyclades, located in between the island of Kea and Serifos.

Natural spa

Kythnos has two really rare thermal springs. One of them, Agii Anargiri (38 degrees Celsius) is diverted into the spa building where people can have a thermal spa in one of the bathtubs and the second one, Kakkavos (52 degrees Celsius) is diverted into the sea where a natural "Jacuzzi" has been constructed just next to one of the beaches in Loutra village. Enjoy fish dinner at the picturesque port of Loutra, to wrap up the day!

Beach hopping

Kythnos has 92 beaches! Beach hopping is always a fun day to organize! A private boat tour can be arranged to the ones that are not accessible by car. A boat trip to the famous double beach of Kolona is a must! If you are in the mood, you can even jump on a sea kayak and go beach hopping.

Embrace the pure island life

Walk on hiking trails with exceptional beauty, take diving or snorkeling lessons, go sailing and canoeing, or visit "Vriokastro" the ancient town of Kythnos. Canyon Tribe can arrange for you to watch a beekeeper make honey, learn to cook local pies, organize a pottery workshop or even learn how to make “pastelia”, one of the Greek traditional sweets.
