Accommodations are simple, but luxurious in terms of the loving care and attention paid to every detail. You will stay in a beautiful white mediterranean eco-villa, off-the grid, set on 60-acres of untouched nature in the midst of azure waters of the Aegean Sea. Meals are served family style under a large palm tree on the terrace overlooking the sea. Lissa lovingly prepares Mediterranean meals from the freshest, organic and seasonal vegetarian ingredients, either sourced locally or grown on the island.

 

FLOW OF THE DAY. . .

MORNINGS begin with a serenity walk around the island — followed by yoga, meditation and pranayama on the open-air yoga terrace overlooking the Aegean Sea with Gayle Olson.  After yoga, you will enjoy a healthy breakfast of locally grown products outside on the terrace.

AFTERNOONS are pure leisure, kayaking, swimming, snorkeling, lying on the beach, exploring the island, having a massage or simply swinging in a hammock by the sea.  Lunch is a light and healthy vegetarian meal grown in the garden — tomatoes, basil, olives, and island surprises.

EVENINGS are pure magic. We begin with a relaxing sunset yoga session over the sea. And then head to the terrace to share our meal and wine family style under the stars—appreciate the simple life of sumptuous tastes, good food, good wine and great company!
