The Villa

Villa Hebe is a wonderful, stylish villa in a fantastic position just below Gaios towards Mongonissi.

It offers airy & elegant interiors, landscaped gardens, plenty of panoramic spaces, & terraces where we will have our meditation and yoga practices and a lovely salt water pool.

It has a peaceful loungey feel yet an earthy, grounding atmosphere.

The villa has stunning views overlooking the sea and beautiful Balos beach is just a breath away - located right under the villa - where you can go for a swim. Charming Gaios town is just a short walk away, where you can find all of the bars, tavernas & interesting artisanal shops.

A live-in house-keeper and gardener will be there to make sure that you have all you need during your stay.


Getting to Paxos


You can fly to Corfu Airport – there are regular and direct flights from many airports.

Once you arrive on Corfu there is a hydrofoil ferry from Corfu Port as well as a boat from Lefkimmi that will take you straight to the Port of Gaios, Paxos.



Allergies and dietary requirements

Please tell us at the time of your booking about any dietary issues / requirements / needs that you may have, in order to be able to cater for your needs. Thank you!



Real Happiness Retreat is not a silence retreat. Having said that, the retreat’s primary goal is to find calm and peace within, with the help of yoga’s wonderful tools and the surrounding nature. We’d like to ask you to respect each other’s space by making sure volume is kept down at all times. Please do indulge in conversations with everyone, but also allow those who primarily seek serenity, to enjoy their quiet time. :)

Smoking & Alcohol

The retreat is located in a natural environment, therefore the accommodation, its surroundings and the rooms are smoke-free. As this is a wellness retreat, no smoking is preferred in general. If you really need to, however, please contact us to arrange a space for you.

Regarding alcohol, light to no use is recommended; If you'd like to make the most out of these special few days, let the retreat activities take full effect on both your body and mind so you can leave in a completely relaxed and refreshed state.


In order to secure your place a 30% deposit is required at the time of booking, with the outstanding amount to be paid a week before the retreat. If you would prefer to pay in installments then just let me know and we can arrange a plan that works best for you.


If you need to cancel your place, we will do our best to find someone else to fill up your space - in which case your full deposit minus 50€ administration costs, any bank costs and/ or agency fees will be refunded to you! But this is not always possible, so it is highly recommended to take a travel insurance. We will only issue a refund for cancelled places if a replacement can be found.

  • Αν δεν μπορώ να έρθω σε κάποια συνεδρία, μπορώ να λάβω τη βιντεοσκόπηση?
    Βεβαίως. Όλοι όσοι πάρετε μέρος στο retreat, θα λάβετε links με τις βιντεοσκοπημένες συναντήσεις και θα μπορείτε να τις κατεβάσετε για να τις έχετε & να ανατρέξετε ανά πάσα στιγμή.
  • Μπορώ να έρθω μόνο Σάββατα στο group coaching ή μόνο Κυριακές στη yin yoga ή να κάνω κάποιο drop-in?
    Το πρόγραμμα είναι δομημένο με τέτοιο τρόπο, ώστε να συμπληρώνεται η θεωρία από την πράξη, να υπάρχει ισορροπία στην προσέγγιση νου-σώματος και να ολοκληρωθεί μια εξελικτική εμπειρία. Ωστόσο, εάν κάποιος το επιθυμεί, μπορεί να μπεί μόνο Σάββατα, ή μόνο Κυριακές. Γράψε μου στο προαιρετικό μήνυμα τι επιθυμείς και γιατί, και θα επικοινωνήσω μαζί σου.
  • Θα παρέχονται σημειώσεις?
    Στο τέλος κάθε εβδομάδας θα στέλνω σχετικές πληροφορίες για το εκάστοτε θέμα που θα δουλεύουμε. Συνιστώ όμως τα Σάββατα να έχετε μαζί σας σημειωματάριο.
  • Πως μπορώ να κάνω την πληρωμή?
    Η πληρωμή της συμμετοχής μπορεί να γίνει μέσω Revolut ή Paypal. Εφόσον συμπληρώσετε τα στοιχεία σας στην παρακάτω φόρμα, θα σας αποστείλω email με τα στοιχεία πληρωμής. Αν προτιμάτε κάποιο άλλο μέσο, παρακαλώ εισάγετε το στο προαιρετικό μήνυμα της φόρμας ενδιαφέροντος.
  • Αν αποφασίσω ότι δεν μπορώ να συνεχίσω, μπορώ να έχω επιστροφή χρημάτων?
    Εφόσον δεν έχει ξεκινήσει το retreat, ναι. Εφόσον έχετε ξεκινήσει το retreat, δεν θα μπορεί να γίνει κάποια επιστροφή.
  • Τεχνικά, τι χρειάζομαι για να συμμετέχω?
    Έναν υπολογιστή/tablet με κάμερα και καλή/σταθερή σύνδεση στο Ιντερνετ. Καλό είναι να έχετε κατεβάσει την εφαρμογή Zoom, αλλά δεν είναι απαραίτητο. Δεν προτείνω τόσο κινητό για να έχετε καλύτερη εικόνα. Κάποιοι όμως το συνδέουν με την τηλεόρασή τους!
  • Για τη yin yoga τι χρειάζομαι?
    Ζεστά & άνετα ρούχα, ένα στρώμα γιόγκα και, ιδανικά, μπόλικα μαξιλάρια. Όσο πιο σκληρά, τόσο πιο καλά.
  • Έχω κάποιους σωματικούς περιορισμούς/ ασθένεια/ τραυματισμό. Πόσο μπορεί να με εμποδίσει από τις σωματικές ασκήσεις?
    Γράψε/πες μου ακριβώς τι θέμα έχεις και θα το συζητήσουμε μαζί, ώστε να κάνεις μόνο ό,τι είναι βοηθητικό για σένα. Γενικώς, κινούμαστε πάντε θεραπευτικά, με σεβασμό κι αγάπη προς το σώμα. Επίσης,όπου κρίνεται απαραίτητο, δίνονται πάντα εναλλακτικές.
  • Έχω κάποια απορία αλλά δεν βρίσκεται στη λίστα. Τι κάνω?
    Επικοινώνησε μαζί μου απευθείας ή γράψε ό,τι σε αφορά στο προαιρετικό μήνυμα της φόρμας.
