8 Day True Paradise Yoga Holiday in Southern Greece

Aquamarine Hotel, Unnamed Road, Monemvasia 23053, Grecia

History, Sea, Nature, Culture, and Yoga in Greece

Sweat and glow in sunny Greece. This corner of Europe is truly stunning. Everything around has a middle eastern flavor. Enjoy a wonderful seascape and deserted golden beaches for you to practice or simply walk alone in silence. It is unbelievable that this authentic paradise is located in Europe, in the European Community. You don't have to travel to the other side of the globe, to find unspoiled nature, emptiness, and silence, it is right here, just around the corner.

It is located at Kampos village (after the village of Agioi Apostoloi), a few kilometers from the city of Neapolis, in Laconia prefecture. Within walking distance, you can swim at the beach of Neratziona with its golden white sand, the emerald seawater, and enjoy your refreshment at the nearby beach bar.

Program

Holismos Yoga & Wellness has been traveling to this part of Greece since 1995 and since then, almost every year, they have been taking groups of people from all parts of the world, for teacher training, retreats, or simply to share together a different kind of holiday in a pristine environment, with amazing beaches in total silence, calm, and relaxing atmosphere.

A few years ago, they came across Aquamarine Hotel, fell in love with the place, and the people who run it. Aquamarine is a three-star newly-built hotel, just a few meters from the idyllic and sandy beach of Neratziona. Not far away, there is the well-known beach of Pounta, as well as the island of Elafonisos with its notorious beach of Simos.

Retreat location

This retreat will take place in Kampos village in Southern Greece.

The hotel is located on an isolated beach in front of the little but famous island of Elafonissos. There is virtually nothing all around, only a few scattered holiday homes and one taverna that belongs to Michaela, our friend, and a wonderful cook.

The golden beach stretches for about 3 kilometers and even in the high season, there are very few people all around. This is a location suitable for those looking for a break from the daily routine. Here you can spend a few days in unspoiled nature, in peace and silence. The sea turtle Caretta Caretta comes and nests here every year, the water is crystal clear, the wind blows dispersing heat and humidity, a great place for snorkeling, swimming, and walking.
