Come bask in the warmth of the Mediterranean.

Greece, the birthplace of western civilization, is a country of inspiring ruins, enchanting beaches, and warm salt waters.

This unique retreat features a balance of structured activity and free time for exploration, creativity and rest.

Gently ease into the day moving in harmony with Esana’s restorative yoga practice and Deepam’s guided writing.
