An off the grid experience

Retreat from the city habits, feel the joy of life in nature, hike in the forest, gaze at the stars, get inspired to the practice of your art, rejuvenate and heal.

 

A peaceful and remote forest land, prepared to host all kinds of retreats looking for an environment that reconnects with the natural rhythms and the beautiful world that surrounds us.

In a wild unspoiled place with zero light, sound and air pollution, with an amazing sunrise view from the sea, we built a beautiful outdoor shelter with wooden floor of 70m² ideal for yoga, dance, theater and music activities. Inside the land there are also a camping area and two small forest houses prepared with very basic amenities to host the people. It’s a unique place inside the nature, peaceful and isolated, ideal for resting, detachment from city habits, practice and inner development.

Place & Facilities

Inside an old-growth forest, located at the south-east side of Pelion mountain, viewing the Aegean sea from the altitude of 400m, lies our retreat place. The nearest village, Neohori, is 5km away on a dust road and the closest city, Volos, is around 45km far.

The place is isolated and there are not shops or market around. There are few neighboring natural houses around the area and the way to the village is one hour walk. The water comes from a forest spring, the energy from solar panels, there is no WiFi and the electricity supply is enough for the basic small lights for the night and devices charging. During the retreats the food, accommodation and transportation of the people will be provided by our team.

The area is ideal for small walks and there is a small beach nearby for swimming. The weather is normally warm in the summer, and the chance of rain is very rare. The small animals and insects of the forest will be around so it is suggested to bring a mosquito net.

Accommodation

The forest land offers in general the very basic accommodating amenities, simple and ascetic, in order to sustain the wild, unspoiled character of the area and provide the opportunity to reconnect with nature, leaving behind the city comforts for a while.

There are two options for accommodation: the camping area  and the shared forest houses.

Nutrition

The gardens are part of the environment in our place and the veg & fruit picking is a daily process for meals. Food will be cooked in a sattvic way from a specialized cook, to help our concentration, detoxify our bodies and bring peace.
