CORFU

Returning due to popular demand! We invite you to come with us this September for a wonderful 5* stay at our private villa in Corfu, with a wonderful panoramic view of the vast, blue Adriatic Sea. Located on a secluded hillside just above Kassiopi, this retreat is your opportunity to leave your busy and claustrophobic lifestyle behind and embrace the peaceful and spacious surroundings of this beautiful location.

There are 4 retreats available in 2019. All retreats run from Sunday – Friday.

  1. 1st – 6th September 2019
  2. 8th – 13th September 2019
  3. 15th – 20th September 2019
  4. 22nd – 27th September 2019

 

The Villa

Villa Melpomeni has the rare combination of being in a rural, secluded and private location yet within a few minutes walk of beautiful beaches, wonderful sea for swimming and the pretty harbor and amenities of Kassiopi. The villa has luxuriously spacious bedrooms (with extra wide beds), all of which enjoy an en-suite bath and shower- room.

The Area

Located on the fabled North East coastline of this beautiful Greek Island.  The villa is situated on a beautiful secluded hillside, dominated by the remains of the 13th century Roman fortress and enjoys lovely coastline views both north and south to the Avlaki headland and Kaparelli Island. A short walk from the villa you can find a range of tavernas in the town of Kassiopi along with small gift shops and ice cream bars and a mere 2 minute walk in the opposite direction you will find a small and remote beach – perfect for soaking up the beautiful sun.

Yoga

All of our retreats are pitched towards all levels of yoga – from newcomers to skilled yogis – our Retreat Leaders will always adapt classes to accommodate the abilities of our attendees.

During our retreats, guests will enjoy Vinyasa Flow, Restorative and Yin yoga sessions along with meditative elements. Your retreat leader will run two yoga sessions daily, in the morning where guests will undertake a more dynamic class and in the evening where the focus will be around relaxation (see example itinerary: Alpine Retreat Itinerary). All classes are optional and aim to rejuvenate our guests, whilst also helping you to build on your practice.

This retreat will be led by wellness expert and yoga teacher of 25 years, Jennifer Ellis (view profile).

Food

We believe that on a retreat our guests should eat well and plentifully and therefore we employ a private chef to cater for  your meals. Our recipe creator will cook a range of healthy and delicious meals using fresh, local produce and a buffet brunch will be available every morning until 12.

During the retreat, guests will also enjoy one evening meal at a local authentic restaurant.

Our meals are vegetarian and pescatarian. We are happy to accommodate food preferences or allergens where possible, though specific dietary requirements will incur a small surcharge of £50.

(This is because many specialist products i.e. gluten free / vegan are not easily available in retreat locations and thus need to be sourced further afield.)
