Retreats on Greek Islands
There is no archipelago in the world quite like the Greek Islands, and we feel blessed there are so many blissful retreats there. You may want to wander down cobbled Byzantine footpaths, hike on volcanoes, sit and chat with friendly locals or cycle through verdant forests. Fancy kayaking beside dolphins or watching for sea turtles? Then head to a retreat on the Greek islands. Crete is big in size and heart and what fun it has in store for you. Choose a fitness retreat in Milia and stay on an eco-friendly organic farm that was once an ancient mountain settlement. You can expect barefoot running on the sun-kissed beach, sea swimming, rhythmic boxing and circuits – all outdoors. If you’re crafty, opt for an art retreat near the heritage village of Gavalochori where you’ll mix art therapy with yoga, walking and gourmet food. Do yoga on Kefalonia, the setting for Captain Corelli’s Mandolin, or write your book on Lesbos. If you like your islands small and untouched, we recommend a gorgeous retreat on a private island, just 15 minutes by boat from Evia. There’s also a lovely yoga company that runs set date retreats on Andros in the wild north-east of the islands. Enjoy!
