The Venue

 

The retreat is located in one of our luxury villas in Mykonos.

We sometimes also mix and match villas if the retreat is not in high season, picking form our vast portfolio depending on which side of the island is windier at the time of the retreat so our guests can have the best experience of Mykonos. No other retreats companies can do this. See the pictures below for villas in our portfolio.

All the villas in our Mykonos portfolio are oases of beauty. We typically use villas from our portfolio of hillside villas overlooking the sea and harnessing the best of the fresh sea breeze. For bigger retreats with higher attendance we combine villas in direct proximity (sometimes across the road from each other or 30 seconds walk) for a more exciting community feel. Guests can use the pool and outside areas of any of the villas in their retreat!

Whichever villa we choose for your retreat, you are guaranteed:

  • To be notified about which exact villa no later than 6 weeks before the retreat

  • A high end luxurious villa with a beautiful pool

  • Luxurious rooms cleaned daily with towels and toiletries provided

  • Amazing views of the sea

  • Spacious grounds for downtime, relaxing, suntanning

  • Well equipped kitchens, living and dining areas

  • All modern conveniences


Joining one of our luxury villa retreats is total indulgence at a bargain.

 

All our Mykonos villas are spacious with large living and cooking areas and ample outdoor space for soaking in the sun and watching the sunrise and/or sunset. Rooms can be booked as single occupancy packages or sharing packages, with up to two guests sharing a double or king-size room.​
