We've chosen the sublime setting of Santorini to fire you up for this wonderful week of wellbeing. This idylic island paradise situated within the Cyclades in Greece, erupted over 3600 years ago to reveal spectacular rock formations, lunar landscapes and the best sunsets in the Mediteranean. Considered a magical and mythical island and recognised as a place with powerful energy and authenticity, popular theory states that the volcanic eruption here was the source of the legend of Atlantis.
We feel very fortunate to have been offered a week at / Our home for the week is...the award winning Pelagos hotel, situated 3kms outside of Oia village, surrounded by farms and vineyards. Just 10 minutes from the nearest beach, the complex overlooks the turquoise waters of the Aegean Sea and the caldera (crater) below.
This peaceful paradise is well away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist areas, but close to the traditional villages with their white-washed buildings nestled into the cliff face, beaches and downtown Fira.
Our spacious, bright and airy rooms are situated within 3 detached Cycladic buildings in perfect harmony with the surrounding landscape. Furnished in typical Santorinian style with an emphasis on character and comfort.
Each room has its own en-suite bathroom and private balcony allowing for greater privacy and relaxation, with spectacular views of the countryside, gardens or pool. Take a stroll between the palms and fig trees and let your mind calm, relaxing in hammocks between the trees, sipping coffee or cocktails by the pool, on the terrace or your own balcony.
The overall magic of this place offers you a secluded calm space, with privacy, as well as several communal areas like the yoga shala, dining areas, gardens, and terraces.
The outside yoga shala is a huge space bathed in light

Santorini offers agricultural produce of exquisite quality and incomparable taste due to both its unique climate and volcanic soil. Our hosts philosophy regarding their restaurant is one of combining the use of local produce with biological cultivation. Therefore, they cultivate typical local varieties of fruit and vegetables without adding any artificial fertilizers, pesticides or growth accelerators.
They strongly support the idea of organic nutrition, offering a wide range of Greek, traditional dishes using as many ingredients as we can from their own produce, such as cherry tomatoes, white aubergines, local cucumbers, round zucchinis, string beans, grapes, figs, melons and watermelons.
Take a stroll into the vegetable garden and get acquainted with the renowned, dry varieties which grow on the island and taste the fruit of their fig trees which surround your bungalows.
Your retreat includes 7 breakfasts and 5 dinners at the hotel. On arrival day, a special welcome dinner is served where we meet, greet and set our intentions for the week. Our final night will be a celebration of our journey together and for the remaining 2 dinners – one we will dine at sunset at a gorgeous restaurant in Fira and another onboard the yacht on our optional sailing trip half way through our week.
To allow for personal flexibility and enable you to explore the island during the daytime, lunches at the hotel aren't included. You have option to either use the small kitchens in the shared rooms to prepare your own, dine in the hotels restaurant or eleswhere on the island. Mandy has good knowledge of the local area so can recommend some great places to eat. Vegetarian, vegan and gluten and lactose free meals are available at the Pelagos. Fish may also be available twice a week.
