Amazing Place for Yoga and Meditation Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We loved this villa very much. It is situated right on the top of the hill. You can easily walk to the litte village where you get everything you need.

And a lot of good Restaurants, too. On the other side you have a litte beach with sand. We all had motorbikes to reach the beaches which are all around the place 1-3 Kilometer. That was very comfortable and much fun. We stayed with a group of people for Yoga and Meditation Retreat. There was enough space for all of them to withdraw, there were many little terraces, a hammock, Places for gathering and to do Yoga. A big kitchen for cooking. And one very big stone table in the Patio to sit and eat all of us together.

The house has a very unique magic, as it is over 250 years old. For us it was the perfect stay and all the group enjoyed it very much. We will come back next summer for sure. Thank you for hosting us.

Nous avons séjourné une semaine dans ce lieu de rêve, idéalement situé en aplomb du village. Tout était idyllique. Chaque pièce est empreinte d’une grande beauté. Tout appelle à la sérénité, au farniente.

L’agencement des différents espaces et terrasses permet à chacun de vivre au gré de ses envies ou de se retrouver par exemple dans la grande cour, coeur très convivial de la propriété . chaque chambre est très agréable et c’est protégé par de grandes moustiquaires qu’on y dort divinement car la literie est parfaite. La cuisine est bien équipée et incite à cuisiner sur place. Nous y étions fin septembre période idéale tant pour la température extérieure que pour celle de la mer.

Une magnifique demeure dotée de vue imprenable à 360° sur la douce et insulaire baie de Sivota, idéale pour un groupe comme le nôtre (8 adultes et 8 jeunes) avec ses deux bâtiments principaux, séparés par un jardin en étages, jalonné de demis niveaux, d'escaliers tortueux et de charmantes terrasses. Bref, un endroit unique où il fait bon vivre et où chaque mur et chaque objet raconte une histoire. Ajoutés à cela les bons conseils et la sollicitude de la propriétaire, madame Brunard, et de Kosta, son "agent de liaison" sur place. Tout était là pour nous permettre de passer de belles vacances. Et ce fut le cas.

J'ai passé un magnifique séjour dans cette merveilleuse maison. Les propriétaires se sont assurés que tout soit en place pour que notre séjour se passe au mieux. Il y a une superbe vue sur la baie et la décoration de type byzantine est de très bon goût.

Je suis très très heureuse d'avoir découvert ce paradis terrestre, que je conseille bien évidemment! :-)

My family of 17 had a reunion in this beautiful house. We converged there from all over the globe and spent a lovely week together. Despotiko has incredible charm, with its archaeological and geological artefacts and tasteful furniture. It overlooks stunning views of the harbour. The best rooms are upstairs in the main house but all the rooms are nicely decorated and have a bathroom. The kitchen is well-equipped. We could walk to a number of nearby beaches and everyone was friendly - not the least, the owner Dominique, who was ready with any information or help needed. Highly recommended for a large group of adults and older children.

Sublime séjour!

  • 5 of 5

Notre séjour a été tout bonnement formidable. Cette maison est sublime, décorée avec beaucoup de goût dans laquelle on se sent "comme chez soi". Jardins, terrasses...Le groupe que nous étions a eu ses espaces d’intimité, de collectivité. Nous avons fait de merveilleux dîners sous l’olivier, profité des terrasses et aussi chaque jour de la plage. La propriétaire nous a donné au préalable toutes les informations et contacts (locations scooter, voiture, bateaux, restos)... En nous recommandant d'elle, nous avons partout été a accueilli avec beaucoup de gentillesse. L' environnement est parfait pour toutes les activités nautiques (plongée, ski, voilier etc.), tout est accessible à 15mn de marche maximum. Nous avions des enfants de 4 à 16 ans, tous contents, tout a été facile. Avant de louer la maison, j'avais regardé les avis. Quelqu'un a parlé de moustiques... je reviens sur ce point : sincèrement ce n'est pas un problème. Un peu d'anti-moustique le soir et l'affaire est faite.

Pour qui veut découvrir un lieu peu touristique de la Grèce, assez vert, tranquille, profiter d'une maison vraiment exceptionnelle, je recommande vivement ! Nous avons pu nous balader dans la région également, petit tour au Météores qui sont à 2h30 de route, cela vaut bien sûr le déplacement.
