Summer vacation is the perfect opportunity to relax both body and mind, rejuvenate and reconnect with yourself.
Sikinos is a small island in the Southern Cyclades, located between Ios and Folegandros. It is certainly a small paradise on earth, as it still remains untouched from the touristic industry and differs from most of the other overcrowded Cycladic islands of the Aegean Sea. With its typically Cycladic characteristics and colours, Sikinos stands out for its genuine simplicity and authenticity through a traditional laid-back way of living. In this magical place, colourful and unique natural landscapes offer allusive moments of beauty to every traveller and visitor. From the deep blue of the Aegean sea to the golden colours of the sunset, Sikinos has something unique and truly meditative to offer.
Far away from the big, overcrowded, noisy cities, Sikinos Retreat is inviting you to experience an alternative way of vacation which combines nature, relaxation and mind and body refreshment. Our retreat is a unique opportunity to rejuvenate yourself and revitalise your body, with memorable practices in the most beautiful places of the island, surrounded by the deep blue of the Aegean Sea and the mystic tranquility of Sikinos island.
