information

With endless mountains and a magical blue green coastline seen through olive, cypress, pine, oak and carob trees, Ithaca represents the return to the haven, discovery and fulfillment.

In the ancient home Odysseus, we return both outwardly to this magical land and inwardly as we practice our return home to ourselves.  The journey inward and exploration outward will be supported by amazing yoga teacher Taylor Eyewalker, our cozy home at Itha108, delicious and nourishing meals and our sweet community that gathers together as if we were all called to be in this one magical place at the same time together. The island boasts plenty of hiking as well as mountain bike trails with beautiful vistas and inspiring landscapes.

Food at Itha108 is fresh, sumptuous and made up of local produce. All vegetables are organic and sourced from the best of what Ithaca and neighboring Kefalonia has to offer. Plentiful, home-cooked menus blend traditional Greek cuisine with a contemporary style. For the retreats, mainly vegetarian food is promoted, although freshly caught fish is available on request.

We’ll journey to this Greece Yoga Retreat from all over the world to this Greek oasis to nourish and restore. And don’t be discouraged by the seemingly pricey flights from the US! By flying into Athens and booking a separate flight to Kefalonia, options become much more affordable! See more on the FAQ page.

The retreat overlooks the sea on to the rugged East side of Kefalonia the peninsula of Fiskardo. Pollution-free, the views are stupendous, and the air and climate are perfect for growing outstanding fruit. Organic olive oil has been produced on Ithaca as long as anyone can remember. The olives are cold-pressed by the local press to preserve all their healthy qualities, and undergo only the one pressing. The acidity level is below 0.1%. The oil is pure and translucent, a beautiful pale green in colour, slightly sweet to the taste because of its low acid content, a little peppery, rich in Vitamin E, and a perfect accompaniment for salads, pasta dishes or dipping in bread.

Quality sleep is more than just another factor promoting good health, well-being and longevity; it is, in fact, so important, it becomes a fundamental prerequisite. At Itha108, all the mattresses are COCO-MAT, a Greek company based in Xanthi that specialises in natural lifestyle products.Restful sleep can improve physical, mental and emotional health. It enables the body to restore its energy and the mind to relax. A good night’s sleep is the greatest reward for the efforts of the day that passed, and the best way to prepare for the following day.

Background

Itha108 is a Greek island retreat set in a place of outstanding natural beauty, providing a space specifically for peace, relaxation and practice.

Ithaca, home of Itha108, is one of the smallest in the Ionian island constellation that is radiating with Grecian authenticity. It’s shores play host to a long Homeric and mythical history whose many mysteries are sensed amongst animated panorama and secretive coves. Itha108 overlooks the sea and the eastern coastline of neighbouring Kefalonia from an elevated wilderness of olive trees and exposed rocks that provide the elements around which it is built, allowing its natural beauty to speak for itself. An emphasis on indoor-outdoor living ensures full use of the land and its treasures that extend to sweeping and hidden beaches below.

“As you set out on your journey to Ithaca, pray that your journey be a long one, filled with adventure, filled with discovery.”

– Constantine P. Cavafy

Itha 108 sleeps twenty across varied accommodation; six luxury double bedrooms in the main house and three mongolian yurts that are staggered up between rocks, forestry and winding walkways. The many social and quiet spaces allow guests to enjoy the landscape and relax.

A perfect chill out spot is tucked away at the back of the house. Soak up sun or shade on one of two antique Rajasthani swings set with linen cushions. Choose a view of the Ionian sea or wild oak trees. This area is also used for massage therapy.

A library houses Indian artefacts, family photographs and paintings, board games and music. A comfortable sofa and two armchairs are arranged around a stone fireplace. Sea views and a gentle breeze through shuttered French windows lead on to a cool minimalist first floor terrace with views of Fiskardo, Kefalonia and the setting sun.

At the front of the house is a serious suntrap with a panoramic sea view and comfortable Indian Charpoy daybeds; this veranda is soaked in sun from mid-morning until nightfall.

Beneath an expansive pergola are traditional Rajasthani sofas and coffee tables, carved spice boxes and Eastern lanterns. Help yourself to breakfast and snacks from the outdoor kitchen – a curved Kourasanit counter beneath the bamboo pergola – complete with an inbuilt BBQ and a sunken drinks fridge. Handmade African wood doors lead from the kitchen to the al fresco dining area with far-reaching views of the Ionian sea and beyond, the hills of Kefalonia.
