GREECE AWAITS YOU

Kithira has a rugged, simple beauty and tourism here is still quite undeveloped. Kithira is a calm refuge that takes pride in its traditional way of life, and boasts some of the most astonishingly beautiful beaches in all of Greece. Combining the power of yoga with the rugged beauty and passionate energy of the Greek Islands will transform you!

Seaside Paradise

See the guardian.com article on this ”perfect island”

Guests will stay in Avlemonas – a beautiful, seaside village with small scale family run boutique hotels, cafes and family owned restaurants.

Our main site, Anemes, is an 8 room, 2 storey hotel. Anemes is run by Pashali and his wife Mema. It is built on land given to Pashali by his paternal grandmother. One and two bedroom studio apartments are available. Each room has its own patio with stunning views of Paleopoli beach, fabled to be the birthplace of Aphrodite. Your room contains a kitchenette for personal use and is air conditioned.

Room selection is based on availability at time of booking. No rooms are alike so book early for best selection!

About Kithira

Kithira Island is one of the most isolated islands in Greece. For those wanting to restore some balance to their lives, Semperviva’s yoga retreat on Kithira Island is the perfect choice.

Kithira’s coastline is over 50km long, and strewn with some of the world’s most spectacular secluded beaches.

Kithira Island allows you to experience authentic Greece. It is a culture that still relies heavily on agriculture as a source of income, a fact which makes the locals proud. It’s locally produced honey made with thyme is renowned throughout Greece, as are the rare Semperviva Flowers (hence Semperviva Yoga) which grow wild on the steepest cliffs on the eastern end of the island.

Yoga and The Serenity of Greece

Breathtaking landscapes are a prominent feature on Kithira Island, which makes it the perfect spot for a relaxing yoga retreat and meditation. Numerous gorges are home to a variety of wildlife and birds, and late in the season golden eagles can be seen circling the skies above the precarious cliff top monastery of Agia Moni. The diverse scenery on offer means Kithira is ideal both for walkers and nature lovers whilst the more artistic can spend days searching for the perfect subject amongst the deserted villages and impressive stone bridges, remnants of past empires. Although the attractions of the interior are many, the beaches are still a favourite for most, and especially for those practicing yoga.

Whether your priorities are secluded splendour or convenience and a sun-bed, Kithira Island has something for everyone.

Free Time

There is lots of free time daily to explore over 35 magnificent beaches on Kythira, in addition to quaint towns and villages, local markets, seaside tavernas and archaeological sites.
We like to balance time spent as a group with time for yourself.
Your days can be as full or as leisurely as you choose.
Each two individuals will be provided with a car to give you more personal freedom.
After our morning yoga classes, we will meet to discuss possible adventures for the day that include some of the island’s better kept secrets.
Following our group explorations you are free until our evening class at 7:00pm.

Excursions
