    "A true community is not just about being geographically close to someone or part of the same social web network. It's about feeling connected and responsible for what happens. Humanity is our ultimate community, and everyone plays a crucial role." - Yehuda Berg

    We believe in fostering meaningful, lasting connections with those around us and those who touch our hearts. Being part of a community that becomes an extended family ♡

    Vangelis Chalkias has been our guide, mentor and dear friend from the beginning of this journey with the island. He has the biggest heart and best ideas, and gets even the seemingly impossible done. With everything that we have achieved, it is because Vangelis was there supporting and ensuring it happened. We could not have done it without him. Here are just a few of the things he and his team have up their sleeves.

    Vangelis and his brother Dimitris Chalkias are the lights behind our solar system on the island. They run Future Energy Environmental Co. so if you need a Solar System set up, look no further. You can click here for more information

    All our yoga mats, yoga towels, blocks and straps come from Agoy. Agoy started in London with a love of yoga and a belief that yoga is for everyone. Agoy takes great pride in producing products that are evaluated by visual appearance, performance and by the way they effect the environment. It is only when they have passed these tests that they know they have produced something that works, and they definitely work for us, we love them! You can find out more here

    Our complimentary toiletries made especially for us by one of our previous guests, the gorgeous and talented Anna Tsourapa, based in Volos.

    Maro with her children Alexis and Katerina, are the sustainable farmers of the finest organic sundried figs that we supply and sell on the island, based in Taxiarchis. They have stayed true to the traditional Smyrna fig production method from pre-industrial times which means that each fig is picked, selected and cleaned by hand to ensure that it meets their high standards. Maro was recently recognized by Greenpeace for her pioneering work and commitment to organic farming. You can find out more about this wonderful family by clicking here
