”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
