YOUR MAGICAL LOCATION

 

Nestled half way between Athens and Crete, Milos is only a short flight or a 3 to 5 hour ferry ride from Athens.

Welcome to the ‘island of colours’,  rich in minerals and boasting dramatic landscapes in vivid hues. Milos is famous for its stunning beaches, gorgeous sunsets and surreal geological formations.

Steeped in history and diverse influences, Milos was once ruled by the Macedonians, then the Egyptians and the Roman Empire that created its marble theatre. 

Milos is known as ‘the island of lovers’, where the famous statue of  Venus de Milo, the ancient Greek Goddess of Love and Beauty, was found.

You are in the ideal place to embrace these feminine qualities and allow your inner radiance to emerge!

YOUR ISLAND HOME

Experience living in a tiny Cycladian village with its typical white washed walls, filled with warmth and character.

Your villa combines traditional elegance and luxurious simplicity. You have the convenience of a mini fridge and tea making facilities.

Located opposite the beach, you can easily stroll in either direction to take in the picturesque coastline or stop by a local taverna and drink in the fabulous vistas.

The sunsets are absolutely breath-taking! As the evening descends and the gentle breezes caress you, people come to life.

Maybe you want to soak up the inviting warm ambience, simply dining perhaps with a glass of wine or allow yourself to be swept into the contagious vibe of the greek music.

Or just chill out and lay under the clear sparkling skies for some star gazing, before heading off for a rejuvenating nights sleep.

DELICIOUS CUISINE

 

You are in a gourmet dream destination!

Savour the sumptuous local specialties in the local tavernas. Tantalise your taste buds with home-made delicacies.

Milos is famous for its cooking – the greek salad is out of this world!

Try the famous ’Volcanic’ cuisine, a unique and local speciality made here on Paliochori beach. Experience eating food cooked in the volcanic sand from the natural heat source under the restaurant. The view here is absolutely spectacular.

Then, take a dip in front of the restaurant, finding the warm spots where the spring water bubbles up underneath you. 

Float on your back and gaze across at the myriad of colourful refections from the surrounding rocks.

YOUR EXPERIENCE

 

Your day begins with energising yogic practices and a scrumptious healthy brekkie. Continue on for a refreshing swim before the days activities.

Your group sessions will be integrated into our adventure activities whenever possible.

YOUR DEDICATED HOSTESS

 

Mirella del Mondo is a transformation coach and wellness expert. An avid researcher, she is passionate about yoga, health, nutrition and travel.

‘The Greek islands have seduced me many times. In 2010, I returned three times and began to run yoga retreats there.

On my second visit, I discovered the magical island of Milos.  At the time I was processing an intense personal breakdown.

Its earthy splendour was profoundly nurturing and brought me into a place of deep presence, creating the space to experience some powerful breakthroughs in my life.

Milos truly provided the perfect setting to awaken me to what no longer served me,resolve issues of the heart, connect with my feminine radiance and feel an authentic sense of belonging and feeling supported by life.

As an added bonus, it satisfied my thirst for adventure!’

Mirella’s ongoing mission is to invite women into embracing their gifts, reclaiming their self worth and shamelessly shining their light out into the world.

‘RAWomen retreats’ are the ultimate journey where ‘Spirituality Meets Adventure’.
