retreat_greece

Celebrate the arrival of the summer practicing yoga, breathing in fresh Cycladic air and learning how to cook traditional vegetarian dishes (taking it easy on those feta-cheese pies). May is the month that Kythnos is at its best, still green and blooming. Inspired by the greatness of the nature we will move playfully and imaginatively intending to nourish ourselves and express from inside out. We'll explore secret paths, hidden temples, and Kythnos thermal waters. Two cooking courses are included in the fee. Zoe is an experienced Hatha Yoga teacher - or Goddess Artemis in a previous life. She also runs Namaste Yoga Studio in Athens, which we recommend in case you're spending few days at the capital.

the endless summer of body and soul

Everyone has dreamt lying on a remote beach of a Greek island.

But only few know where to find this island

And even fewer will gaze it from a down facing dog with their hands woven into the golden sand. 

Holiday time is precious so make it worth.  

Treat yourself to a FYKIADA RETREAT at the Greek island of Kythnos in Cyclades.

THE ISLAND

THE ISLAND


Sun salutations facing the Aegean sea

Kythnos is considered to be one of the last Cycladic islands unaffected by the impact of mass tourism. Its pure Cycladic style can be felt through the warmth of local people, the simple way of life, the traditional well kept-architecture of the villages and the absence of big complex-hotels.  In most areas the 1,000 residents of Kythnos keep living on their traditions.

Kythnos has a spectacular coastline of 100km with over 70 beaches many of which still untouched.   

Kythnos has been probably named after its founder Kythno, king of Dryopes the first tribe that inhabited the island. A second explanation of its name is the origin of the verb 'kentho' meaning 'hide'. The latter version might refer to the natural properties of the island during the late antiquity: shadowy woods, deep valleys, caves and even mines.

The ancient Greek word 'kefthmon' means a dark, deep place where one can disappear.

Villa Parathyri Beach


TO DREAM FOR

  SWIM LIKE NOBODY'S WATCHING 

Parathyri beach is one of the calmest little bays of Kythnos and located on the east side of the island. The road is a bit rough at the very end making it less accessible for both locals and tourists. There's only one house on that beach. And guess what? It can be yours! You can wake up on your own private natural swimming pool and go straight for a dive. 

The house fits 8 people. There's a spacious  outdoors terrance for yoga practice, a barbeque, outdoor showers, two big bedrooms - one with en suit bathroom. Both bedrooms have their own balconies, TV and AC.

Liotrivi Beach


'KELIA' stone houses

GRASS ROOT SUSTAINABILITY AT ITS BEST! 

KELIA is a typical Cycladic style of architecture which is kept in only a few places around the Cyclades. People use to build small houses out of the local stone that each place had to offer. They used those houses for storage purposes, to protect their animals from the sun or for a place to rest during the summer months.

FYKIADA RETREATS has three small 'KELIA' available to host groups of 8-10 people which include. It's only a minute away from the beach which is a calm little bay and it also provides kitchen amenities, a handmade outdoors oven for grilled fish & veggie pizzas! and a small storage. TV and A/C included.
