Holiday therapy is here!

We are running TWO retreats in 2025:

27th May - 3rd June (7 nights)

or

8th - 15th September

The Full Recharge Retreat is an opportunity to prioritise your wellbeing in beautiful surroundings; a week of relaxation, gentle adventure, delicious food, nature connection, mindfulness and good company.

To retreat is to step away; from busyness, from stress, from responsibilities and the mundane everyday.

This is a FULL RECHARGE: a collection of wellbeing activities as well as free time to do (or not do) whatever your heart desires.

ABOUT SKIATHOS

We've loved Greece for a long time (we were married in Zakynthos) and fell in love with Skiathos in 2019, we can't wait to show you around! It's one of the greenest Greek islands and sits in the Northern Sporades in the Aegean sea. Its green hills are lush with pine and eucalyptus and when we're there in Spring there will be an abundance of wildflowers.

There are 60 beaches on this small island, with golden sand and crystal blue waters. We won't get round all of them but we'll definitely make a bee line for our favourites when the sun is shining!

Speaking of sunshine - May can be quite changeable so we will likely have a variety of weather. During a two week trip in May 2023 we had both glorious blue skies and sunshine (shorts and t-shirt weather) and cosy, rainy days. The island is beautiful in any weather and we'll plan the activities accordingly. We've chosen this time of year because cooler days are perfect for exploring the many hiking trails and hilly parts of town that would be a no-go in the summer heat.

You can fly direct to Skiathos from Manchester and other major cities.

THE VILLA

We've hired a stunning private villa that you won't find on any booking websites - it was a chance meeting on our last trip to the island that helped us find this special place.

Each of the 4 available bedrooms has a kingsize bed and ensuite bathroom so you can have the freedom and calm of your own space.

You can attend solo or share your room with your partner, best mate, sibling or parent.

The rooms are elegantly designed to feel luxurious yet welcoming.

The shared spaces are beautifully decorated and provide the perfect setting for rest and relaxation.

And yes, there is an infinity pool with incredible views. Anyone for a mindful swim?!

FOOD

This wouldn't be a Full Recharge Retreat without full bellies! We'll be serving delicious, homemade and fresh dishes that leave you feeling nourished and satisfied.

 

Our food is plant forward - that means we focus on veggies, grains & legumes. A couple of meals will include a meat/fish option.

Expect Greek and Mediterranean dishes served 'family style' with lots of flavourful salads, locally made bread & tasty sauces. We'll be using seasonal Greek ingredients as much as possible.

We'll also have the opportunity to visit local tavernas. And of course plenty of ice cream - I had a baklava flavour one on our last trip that was divine!

IMPORTANT DETAILS

What's included?

  • 7 nights accommodation in  a luxury villa

  • most meals (see below)

  • activities mentioned above

  • 1 hr massage treatment

  • airport pick up/drop off in Skiathos

Not included: flights, additional optional activities (eg. boat trip/water taxi), snacks/coffees etc you choose to have when out, 2 lunches and 2 evening meals.

Getting here & traveling on the island:

The easiest way to get here is to fly direct from Manchester, with EasyJet, their flight dates align with the retreat. Look out for deals on airline websites or use Skyscanner to compare prices. January sales can be a good time to book but don't leave it too late as it's only a small island and it can get booked up. Drop me an email if you want to chat more about this, we're happy to help!

We'll be at the airport to collect you and take you to the villa. During the retreat week we'll organise any transport needed for the activities planned and there is a great bus service on the island.  If you want more independence you can hire a quad bike or car to explore hidden beaches and mountain roads. It's best to organise this here, there's lots of options and we can help you. Alternatively you can simply explore on foot - please note the villa is on a hill but we'll be around most of the time if you want picking up from the nearest beach.
