Set within olive groves and with spectacular views of majestic Mount Aenos and the Ionian sea, the grounds at Vericoco are spacious enough for you to enjoy plenty of quietude, yet conveniently laid out to provide easy access to yoga shala, 11m pool and outdoor living areas.
There will be twice daily yoga sessions at the shaded outdoor yoga shala; flow in the morning and restorative and meditation in the afternoon. We will have Wednesday afternoon off, the perfect opportunity to explore the island a little more or take a boat trip to visit hidden coves along the shoreline.
Kefalonia itself is a lush green island in the Ionian region, famous for its turquoise seas and clean sandy beaches. One of the largest Greek islands, it also boasts the impressive Mount Aenos with thick fir forests as well as underground caves and ample countryside.
There is a variety of accommodation at Vericoco, from top of the range en-suite rooms within the recently built luxurious villa, to shared rooms within smaller apartments situated very near by. The pricing reflects the different room types.You will eat well with two plentiful vegetarian meals a day; brunch after morning yoga and dinner every evening. The cuisine at Vericoco is grown locally, freshly prepared and delicious. There are three restaurants nearby and two shops in Spartia village and as all rooms have access to kitchen facilities, you can prepare your own lunch/snacks as you like.
