7 night Summer Beach Yoga Holiday in Corfu
Join us for a 7 night summer beach yoga holiday in Corfu! Offering a beautiful yet tranquil alternative to the bustling, cosmopolitan beach of Acharavi, Almyros is a peaceful paradise escape, perfect for those looking to take a relaxing break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. We welcome couples; solo travellers and friends who’d like to combine their love of yoga with a sunshine holiday.
Located within the stunning Greek island of Corfu, our experienced and inspiring yoga teachers will challenge your mind and body, encouraging you to enhance your overall wellbeing through daily practice of yoga techniques.
With its rich, mountainous landscape, Corfu offers a beautiful view to its visitors. The northern area of the island has preserved its natural and architectural environment, making it popular with visitors and locals alike. Dominated by mountains, the island has a never ending expanse of rolling hills and blossoming trees, bursting with lush vegetation. Coastal areas offer tranquil white sandy beaches, while the shimmering blue sea provides a perfect backdrop to the green Corfiot countryside.
Corfu’s climate is another endearing feature of the island. Warm summers are relatively dry, with blue skies and a tranquil sea breeze, while winters remain mild with little rainfall. On average there are 3000 hours of sun per year on the island of Corfu, with an average daily sunshine amount of 8.5 hours.
The house is located right on the beach where you can spend your days chilling out in between the meals and yoga. The walk to the nearest town is about half an hour away, or an easy 10 minute cycle with the bikes we provide for free. In the town there is a supermarket, cafes and restaurants.

What past guests have said
“Friendly and relaxed atmosphere, great location and beautiful views!. Throughout our stay we were really well looked after. Alice and her team ensured that we had everything we needed and kept things relaxed by offering a flexible service, which was really well tailored to our individual needs. The location of the villa couldn’t be better, right beside the beach with amazing views of the sunset each evening. There was plenty to do locally and the team were always available to provide information and local insight on the best places to eat, drink and play. Thank you for an amazing stay! Best Holiday I’ve ever taken.” Reviewed for a stay in June 2016
”From before I actually booked the yoga holiday in Corfu, I felt welcomed and taken care of. They thought of everything to make my experience wonderful and relaxing (they helped me coordinate transport to and from the airport/book excursions/etc). The villa itself is stunning, so clean and right on the water. The first thing I did when I checked in on Saturday was to take a nap on the hammock while listening to the ocean – talk about relaxing. We were so well fed too! They brought different dishes from local restaurants so we could get a variety and experience everything. The yoga locations and times were just right – they have a private section right on the beach as well as a covered area looking at the mountains in the back. I felt safe and calm and wonderful.” Reviewed for a stay in September 2016
