Facilities

  • Swimming pool (outdoor)

You are staying in private family owned villas that feel like your Greek home away from home. The villas are very privately located on a slope of a hill overlooking unspoiled nature and the sea. Each villa features 3 ensuite bedrooms, a shared living room with a kitchenette just in case you feel like making yourself a cup of tea, a swimming pool with a sea view, and a sun terrace. The rooms are simple, comfortable, and tasteful. Double/twin and single occupancy available.

Every bedroom has a spectacular view and a private bathroom. As a retreat organizer, Elena knows how important it is and how tricky it can be to find a place like that.

Program

Elena has been dreaming of finding the right spot to host this yoga retreat, and she's thrilled that she finally has. Welcome to a secret place she found, with uninterrupted views of the forest and the Ionian sea, and welcome to the private beach. You'll spend your mornings and evenings in the most beautiful yoga shala nested on a side of a lush mountain, from where you can only see the sky and the sea merging into an unforgettable canvas featuring every shade of blue.

No distractions. No noise. Just pure nature, beauty and a deep sense of calm all around.

Welcome to your Greek home.

Elena's 3 whys

Why is this retreat happening in Greece?

Because after years of exploration, she has found this hidden gem on a small Greek island in the Ionian archipelago, and she fell in love with it. When this happens, she can't resist sharing it with the yogis.

Why this exact property?

Firstly, because the location is super private, and it's important for the purpose of this yoga retreat. There are no other properties around, no shops and no busy streets. You are staying in a beautifully secluded private location with outstanding views of the Ionian sea just to yourselves and complete serenity and beauty of nature all around.

Secondly, every bedroom has a spectacular view and a private bathroom. As a retreat organiser, she knows how important it is and how tricky it can be to find a place like that.

Lastly, an emotional reason: Elena remembers the exact moment she woke up to the view of the sapphire blue sea from my window during my first visit of the property. She was speechless. She took a mental photograph (and then an actual one) and knew that a retreat here was just meant to be. Can't wait to spoil you a bit!

Why this time of year?

For her test visit to this place, Elena chose the last week of May 2019, just to make sure she liked the island during this season. She loved it! The touristy season starts a few weeks after the retreat, so you get to enjoy more affordable flights, the best weather that is pleasantly warm during the day (20-27C) and cool in the evenings, and some of the world's best beaches before the crowds storm in. End of May is also the greenest season with fragrant herbs all around the island and lots of flowers in bloom. Paradise found!
