Retreats & Courses

Xyloporta is an ideal space for large groups of people coming together with a joint purpose. Whether to practice yoga and meditation, learn to paint, or simply to spend a week enjoying the various walking routes on the island. The living area can accommodate yoga mats, easels or just social moments; while the various cottages, being independent with their own access, provide privacy and solitude from the group when required.

The excellent local chef, Stephanos, can be hired to provide delicious home cooked food or to cook for the guests on the barbeque at Xyloporta. For specialist retreats, UK cooks provide vegan or “clean” food as required (Flora Budenberg, Gemma Docherty - Stem and Glory). The local taverna La Storia can also deliver dinner to order.

Nicoletta and her team will come in as and when required and will provide a full housekeeping service.

Dimitris will be on hand for massage
