Endless view over the Aegean sea

7 days 17.9.2017-23.9.2017 Sifnos - Greece
Starts from: CHF 1'670.-
  • Introduction

    Situated on the island of Sifnos, sprawling on the side of a steep hill with nothing between you and the endless Aegean blue, the hotel will leave you speechless and transcendent. The panoramic view of the sea and the old walled city of Kastro is breathtaking. At night, it is an invitation to infinite star gazing.

    The complex consists of 7 separate buildings, creating an atmosphere of small independent villas, surrounded by beautiful gardens. You will practice yoga in an open space, looking at the bright blue of the sea. A magnificent experience! Between your two daily courses, you can spend long hours relaxing by the infinity pool, that creates a new dimension for the notion "infinite blue". When you enjoy a swim in the infinity pool, you become part of this endless blue and you have the feeling that you can stretch out your arms to be at one with the horizon. A new definition of magic!

    Those who want to move will be able to discover the beautiful and authentic island of Sifnos: traditional whitewashed houses, innumerable churches perched on top of hills, old dry stone walls, ancient mule tracks, orchards of olive trees, radiant and clear light, blue and crystal clear waters, not forgetting the tasty local gastronomy.
