When you think of Greece? You think of Zeus, and the Grecian Gods. The legacy of Alexander the Great, and the Battle of Troy. It's a land where mythology has infused its way into the liveliness of the culture.
Most travelers are drawn to the healthy Mediterranean cuisine while laying back, and kicking up some sand on Greece's countless paradise islands. While we bask in the practices of yoga, meditation and ayurveda, we will unapologetically soak up the endless sunshine, beautiful beaches and turquoise waters. A well deserved restful holiday earned!

Each villa comes with a private swimming pool and exceptional sea views from all the rooms. Each villa is nestled among oak and olive trees, spaced far enough apart to ensure privacy. They stand on a low hill overlooking breathtaking vistas of the Ionian sea near the most famous Greek beaches.
