THE SECRET YOGA HEAVEN OF THE CYCLADES
If you feel like "shutting down" from the craze of city life and immersing into the simplicity of island living then Kythnos is the place for you. This is one of the few Greek islands which are still undiscovered by big crowds and have maintained their local colour. We've saved a slice of private paradise for you where our villa almost touches the water and has a 360 view at the Aegean. A unique experience which is hard to find!
Kythnos is the hidden gem of Cyclades known for its endless coastline and the whitewashed villages. A visit to either Chora or Dryopida village will find you meeting & greeting locals who might invite you for a Greek coffee or fresh pie into their coutryards .
In Kythnos swimming is a big thing as there are over 70 little bays which you can easily swim by and even find yourself skinny dipping when no one is watching.
Jump from our private bay and explore the nearby beaches
Your day starts with a meditation followed by a morning practice watching the sun rising from the sea. Sun salutations never felt better!
Find your favourite spot by the pool enjoying a cold pressed juice, or walk down to the rocky platform with your book to get the perfect tan!
Big gatherings around the table take place after the evening practice with the best of local recipes. Stuffed vegetables, chickpeas in a pot and Greek salad always take center stage. Life meaning revealed into a tomato.

OUT & ABOUT
A boat trip to the famous double beach of Kolona is always a Fykiada must! A slice of golden sand surrounded by crystal clear waters. If you are in the mood, you can even jump on a sea kayak and go beach hopping!
Kythnos' is known for its secret paths and there is even a hiking guide where you can pick your route & wander around. Just bring your snickers!
If you feel like relaxing, a visit at the natural thermal springs of Loutra will leave you calm and rejuvenated. A fish dinner is recommended at the picturesque port of Loutra to wrap up the day.

A FINE STAY
You're surrounded by nature and all kinds of blue here. The great outdoor spaces of the villa welcome you to immerse into the openness of the horizon.
A seawater infinity pool hangs out on the edge of the house blending with the sea and giving a sense of floating.
The proximity to the water is the highlight of this place where a few steps can lead you to a small bay and relax by the soft sound of the waves. Check it out!
