6 Days True Nature:pilates,trekking and the immortal water,Greece

Event Highlights

  • The mountain Helmos is a serene place which hides a lot of history in it.
  • We will hike to ''The Waters of Styx'' , one of the springs of the river Krathi, in Helmos, Achaia at an altitude of 2,100 meters, which we will meet on our route shortly after the Pleiades.
  • According to mythology, anyone who bathed in its waters became immortal, just like Achilles, by his mother Thetis. Today the landscape is exactly the same as described by the mythology.
  • Also, in this mountain ancient gods were making oaths, so it is considered as a holy place.

Schedule

We have at least three excursions for you. When it's an excursion day, we will practise pilates, body balance etc in the afternoon. All the other days we will practise in the mornings and in the evenings.

*The programm may change. In any case we will always have solutions for you, so you won't waste your time.

* We're really worried about your safety. So if the weather is bad and the conditions are difficult we will avoid hiking to the ''Waters of Styx'' mountain. Instead we will postpone the excursion for another day with a good weather, so it will be safer for you.

A typical day at Pleiades Village (each day will be surprisingly different!)

Menu/Cuisine

"Let food be the medicine and medicine be the food." - Hippocrates

Considered to be the most influential figure in the history of medicine and healing, Hippocrates was ahead of his time when, around the year 400 B.C., he advised people to prevent and treat diseases first and foremost by eating a nutrient-dense diet.

Our superfood café believes this man was so right! Superfoods, cold-pressed juices, and delicious smoothies combined with exercise have been transforming bodies and increasing positive vibes for centuries.

So sit back, put your phone on flight mode, relax and enjoy your meal; it’s made with healthy ingredients and, foremost, with love.

During the retreat you will have daily breakfast which will be available inside your house, so you can take it anytime you wish!!

One more meal (everyday) is included. We will take it with us on our excursions or we will have it at the local tavern.

We encourage our customers to inform us whether they enjoy meat or they prefer vegeterian meals. Also, we would like to know if you have any allergies or extra preferences, so we could try to give you extra choices for your meals.
