My father comes from Rhodes island and my mother is English. My maternal grandfather was Polish. I grew up in Thessaloniki in Greece, went to university in York and Warwick in England, worked as a subtitler in London before moving to Rhodes in 2006. I ran a quirky gift shop in Lindos until 2015 and now devote all my time to nurturing Rhodes Retreat and to yoga. I am an Art of Living teacher and enjoy sharing and spreading the yoga way to all!

My parents started building the property practically with their own hands in 2012. I helped them find the location, which is truly unique in its natural beauty and parallel proximity to the city and fabulous beaches. We were looking for something private, tucked-away, yet close to all amenities, and instantly fell in love with the fresh air and tranquility of the area.
You can spot deer, wild boars, and of course sheep and goats from the house. You can walk up to the baby goats and talk to them! The views from the house and surrounding area are undescribably beautiful in any time of day, but the sunrise is repeatedly the best sunrise I've ever seen! There are so many trails to follow, I haven't walked even half of them, and on a windy day I really do feel that I am a character in Wurthering Heights! You will connect to nature here, and find deep rest. All this while enjoying a holiday on one of the most beautiful islands on the planet.
It is highly recommended that you rent a car, unless you are planning to retreat from everything! Rhodes Retreat is a short drive from Traganou Bay, but do also check out Ladiko or Anthony Quinn Bay, Tsambika Beach, Afandou Beach, all no more than a twenty minute drive away. Visiting tiny but healing St John's Monastery, a 2-3 km hike/drive up the mountain, an enjoyable walk. Lovely pic-nicking areas close to the Monastery.
Profitis Ilias mountaintop and visit to abandoned Italian General's house, very atmospheric, lushly cool and green, with formidable views.
Visit Monolithos for another beautiful drive and nature spot. Don't forget to stop at the Halki Panorama - the most fantastic view on the island.
Rhodes Medievil town, a 25 minutes' drive away, a must. Especially pleasant during the evenings.
Apolloniatises Women's Cooperative and Paranga taverna in Apollona village.
Tsambika Monastery. Lindos village. Prasonisi if you are up for exploring the length and breadth of the island!
