We welcome you to experience peace of mind, to immerse into the deep blue of the Ionian Sea, to live freely and connect.
We chose to be hosted in the beautiful Greek island of Lefkas, a land deeply connected with love and history, where white rocks meet the turquoise sea. Lefkas is known for its aspiring natural beauty, its green landscapes and its unforgettable wild but breath-taking sceneries.
