During these five days, you will participate in yoga, meditation, fire ceremonies and ecstatic dance movements along with simple ayurvedic tips for living a healthy life. There is no better place for all these to happen than the magical island of Koufunisia.

A place where the meaning of greek summer is condensed in 3km golden sand, mythical caves and the most glittery water in the Aegean. This island adventure is the best recipe to start living your life to the fullest. Walk everywhere you want, swim from one beach to another, and be on your swimsuit all day long.

Let the zen juices flow in a boho chic stay! Our Koufonisia resort looks like an island painting. Its white shapes fade into the light brown landscape creating a strong contrast with the turquoise background of the water.

Our retreat takes place into two neighbouring villas which together with an outdoor covered yoga shala and a Thai-style massage room create a unique space to unwind and yoga finds a new meaning. Open spaces let the landscape flow into the interior, which features a joyful blend of traditional and contemporary elements.

The palette is playful, with the dominating earth tones highlighted by vivid splashes of colour. Both villas have large outdoor spaces, open terraces and bamboo shaded dining areas, ideal for hosting Greek style feasts. The main villa has a large open-plan kitchen which is used by our private chef to prepare our meals and for hands-on food workshops and tastings.

The bedrooms are comfortable and cozy, with carefully selected fabrics and funky accessories, a touch of whimsy that creates a loving, homely atmosphere. The lower level of the villas is also brightly decorated and equipped with skylights to let the sunlight in.

This is the absolute hideaway for those who want to escape the ordinary and get a taste of what real island life means! By the time you leave, you’ll be a local! Info & booking.
