What past guests have said
”The best vacation I have ever had, truly exceeded my expectations. From the second I was greeted off the ferry by the beautiful Mojca to our final see you soon was a life changing experience for me. The location and the accommodation was stunning, the attention to detail in my room to make me feel more relaxed and at home was beautiful. Mojca was not only an amazing yoga teacher but a beautiful person and great company and Dan, you nourished my soul with your amazing food and your passion for healthy living. I learned so much from both Mojca and Dan, the world is a better place for having people like them in it.” Edel O’carroll from Ireland
”The best yoga retreat ever! The yoga was really good, I have never had such a lovely and caring yoga teacher. And it was so beautiful to have yoga in front of the sea. Also the food was amazing, we had our own chef Dan, so passionated. All the food was organic and really tasty. It was an amazing week. I miss it already. I would love to go back.” Kristin Sellbrant from Sweden
”This long weekend was more than I could have hoped for. Truly healthy eating by the most amazing and knowledgeable macrobiotic chef. The food was fresh, filling and clean. The morning yoga was challenging yet adaptable as I have done yoga on many occasions whereas my friend was quite new. Meditation was another great aspect of the offerings. An unexpected highlight was a trip to a farm of a lovely women who inherited acres of land from her grandmother and on this land we saw Olive trees, cherry trees, herbs and an amazing ecological and sustainable balance in nature. From there we enjoyed a freshly made dinner at this women’s home. I have never had the chance to see the food go from the ground to the table. I am leaving feeling refreshed and inspired. The backdrop to all of this was the enchanted island of Korcula. If you are considering this kind of vacation, look no further joy of the Mediterranean is where you want to be!.” Deb from USA
