September 24th - October 1st, 2022
*SAVE £100* SPECIAL OFFER UNTIL JUNE 20th
A truly unique location. This Wellbeing retreat will be hosted on fertile land situated between Vrahionas Mountains and the crystal clear blue waters of the Ionian Sea. This is the land of ancient poets and olive groves, sparkling azure waters and secluded swimming coves. We will be in the northwest part of the island which is quieter and more remote.
Perfect for retreating.
Residence - Wild Fig Retreat
We will be staying at Wild Fig Retreat. A large, eco-friendly boutique villa nestled in a wild and green valley, surrounded by ancient forests...and no other hotel. The villa, eco-farm and retreat centre is hosted and built by a creative couple who are inspired by nature, informed by conscious living, and dedicated to building community. The cornerstones of Wild Fig Retreat are rejuvenation, reflection and reconnection – an alluring escape from the stresses of daily life surrounded by eighteen hectares of pure nature!
Wild Fig are all about conscious living and are dedicated to purposeful and regenerative travel.
Wild Fig is also a working organic farm, producing wine, olive oil, honey and wild herbs.
Our retreat group will have the entire villa to ourselves.
