Vericoco Retreat, Kefalonia, Greece
The beautiful Vericoco Retreat in Kefalonia offers the chance to reconnect with nature; to pause, step back and recharge. Vericoco is set within olive groves and with spectacular views of majestic Mount Aenos and the Ionian Sea, the grounds at Vericoco are spacious enough for you to enjoy plenty of quiet, yet conveniently laid out to provide easy access to the yoga shala, 11m pool and outdoor living areas
A peaceful 10minute stroll down hill offers you the choice of Vericoco’s two nearest beaches; both with trademark Kefalonian crystal-clear shallow waters.
Spartia beach offers the advantage of the local facilities for those who want to enjoy a drink or snack, and Thermanti has the advantage of being secluded as it is only accessible by foot, making this a pretty magical place.
There will be twice daily yoga sessions at the shaded outdoor yoga platform. An energising flowing style in the morning and a relaxing more restorative session in the late afternoon/early evening. We will have Wednesday afternoon off, this will be the perfect opportunity to explore the island a little more or take a boat trip to visit hidden coves along the shoreline and have dinner out.
Kefalonia itself is a lush green island in the Ionian region, famous for its turquoise seas and clean sandy beaches. One of the largest Greek islands, it also boasts the impressive Mount Aenos with thick fir forests as well as underground caves and ample countryside.
There is a variety of accommodation at Vericoco, from top of the range ensuite rooms within the recently built luxurious villa, to shared rooms within smaller beach houses situated very nearby.
There will be two plentiful, mostly vegetarian meals a day – brunch after morning yoga and a delicious dinner every evening, apart from Wednesday evening (chef’s night off) when there will be the opportunity to eat at a local taverna.
The cuisine at Vericoco is grown locally, freshly prepared and delicious. There are three restaurants nearby and two shops in Spartia village and as all rooms have access to kitchen facilities, you can prepare your own lunch/snacks as you like.
There is a variety of accommodation available at Vericoco from single occupancy in a luxury ensuite room in one of the villas for £1665pp to a room in the simpler beach houses with a shared bathroom for £890pp
Prices include brunch, dinner and yoga daily with Wednesday afternoon/evening free.
