Overview

We have teamed up with retreat company Nefeli Nine to bring you a taste of the real Greece. The concept is based on emulating the lifestyles in 'Blue zones' where people live longer and better lives. The main pillars of the retreats are a healthy, mainly plant based diet, daily guided hikes exploring the flora and fauna of the beautiful Greek countryside and coastline and stress release practices such as yoga or massage. Plus there are some special treats like a visit to a traditional Greek fish taverna and an organic farm for a real taste of Greece. This retreat is for those who want to experience the sights, sounds and smells of Greece while keeping active and relaxing the mind. There are limited spaces so contact us to register your interest.

Highlights

The retreat has been designed to keep you moving and invigorated but without including endless routines of tedious exercise. You will start your day with a yoga session to wake up your body in a gentle way and after a healthy breakfast head out for a 3 - 4 hour hike taking in the breathtaking scenery. After lunch you are free for you to enjoy - have a nap, read a book by the pool, or just simply do nothing. If you want to be more active we can arrange for a personal trainer to give you one to one fitness sessions at an extra cost of €40 per hour.

Yoga styles taught include hatha, restorative and vinyasa flow. The teachers will provide modifications for your individual level. The classes are NOT just for experienced yogis.

All the activities are suitable for any age or fitness level as the programme can be modified for those who need it. This is not a bootcamp, so if you want to opt out of any of the activities and relax around the pool or take a dip in the sea the choice is yours. The food is wholesome and healthy and wine is available with dinner if desired.

Maximum group size is 10 participants per retreat. Minimum is 4.

What’s on the menu

Healthy nutrition is at the core of this retreat. All meals are prepared with love by the retreat host Stephanie who is very passionate about healthy eating. The retreat include full board meals which are made up of natural, fresh and local ingredients and there is complete avoidance of processed sugars, chemicals and additives. The menu is mainly plant based but if you want more organic meat or fresh fish, the hosts can arrange that for you at an extra cost. The meals will be enjoyed in a social environment where all retreat participants eat together. 

Location

You will stay in the Villa Kasteli located on the island of Evia which is easily reached by ferry boat from Athens.    Evia is one of the more unknown Greek islands amongst international travellers but is well known by the Greeks for its beautiful nature and authenticity. Villa Kasteli sits  in the heart of a Greek mountain village above the bay of Karystos with panoramic sea and mountain views and a perfect place to get away from an urban and busy lifestyle.   Just two hours by car and boat from Athens airport, ‘getting away from it all’ couldn’t be easier.

There will be a different hike every day to explore Evia plus visits to beautiful secluded beaches and incredible waterfalls.

Nearest airport

Nearest airport is Athens.

Return transfers from and to the airport are included in the retreat programme and your host will pick you up.

The transfer takes approximately 1.5 hours including the ferry ride to Evia Island.

HOW TO MEET YOUR HOST AT THE AIRPORT:

Your host will be waiting for you at the arrival hall holding a sign with the Nefeli Nine logo and your name. 

Families, Children & Infants
