One-week holistic retreat at a beautiful house and garden in Kapandrítion near Athens. 


The villa is set in a peaceful village 20 miles away from central Athens. It consists of a 4-bedroom house and an annex with an extra bedroom. There is a large outdoor pool and barbecue area in the front of the house, and a generous fruit garden around the house where you can experience organic farming. 


Why we chose this location: 

- Quiet trails outside the house that takes us to Lake Marathon, which is also perfect for walks and runs.

- Olive gardens in surrounding area which makes an interesting setting for mindfulness practice.

- Nea Makri beach is only 17 miles away, where we will have our beach exercise and enjoy the sea. 


At this 7-day holistic retreat, apart from our key components of nutrition, exercise and mindfulness, we will also include contents on culture and spirit. Our goal for this retreat is to create an active, relaxing, educational and spiritual ambiance for everyone. We will have the opportunity to interact with the local Yoga instructor, meditation teacher and local chef, through whom we will get to know more about the Mediterranean way of living. We will also spend time in Athens city. We could visit Acropolis of Athens, Pathenon and Herod Atticus Odeon, where some of the greatest civilisation history took place.
