If you are into healthy living, Nefeli Nine Retreat is seriously heaven on earth. Note how I said, “into healthy living”. This retreat is not only for the people who are already doing all the right things (eating correctly, daily yoga and fitness), but also for those who want to veer in that direction. People like me!
I spent one week living the Nefeli Nine way and didn’t want to leave. Simply put, it was living the best version of life I can imagine.

This is one of the few special places described as being a blue zone. A global health spot. For me it was
pure gold. Days full of both purpose and exercise but also time to rest, reflect and restore.
Steph and Emilio radiate energy, enthusiasm and commitment to deliver both a message and mission of
health to result in a feeling of well-being.
The totally diverse group bonded. (I am twice their age) Through humour and endeavour an uplifting
common ground was quickly found.
Each meal a delight both visual and taste.

I have just returned from a short Nefeli Nine break. I was promised home cooked food, 3 hour hikes daily,
and alternating yoga/fitness training by my hosts.
What I actually got was the most delicious vegan/veggie food I have ever tasted. Breakfast lunch and
dinner was something I really looked forward to. One day lunch was served at an old working farm and
our final day we had lunch at a traditional beach side taverna so close to the shore we actually swam as
lunch was being prepared.
I had never been on a hike before and was totally blown away by the variety of hikes, the knowledge of
the guide and the fact that you didn’t have to be super fit to enjoy the best 3 hours of the day.
And now the final part!! Yes. the work outs !! and the yoga!!
I wasn’t looking forward to this part, but I have to say the instruction on the body movements and
particularly for the muscles that we were about to use for the hikes was amazing and very inspiring. So
much so that since I have been back, I have stretched every single day. The yoga was fun and very
lighthearted, and I wish I was there and would continue with this teacher.
All round very enjoyable, It was ME time and so glad I went, it was totally stress free and self-indulgent!

Each morning when I woke up in the big stone villa overlooking the sea, I would sort of giggle to myself
and think, 'This is really happening! I actually get to spend the day hiking and doing yoga in beautiful
Greece!' Then I would remind myself that I also didn't have to plan my meals for the day. Healthy food
would just appear! I would then float down the stairs to morning mobility, truly on cloud nine.

A week I won't forget for a long time - We laughed most of the day, we look and feel a lot healthier, and
I have become a hiking fan. And I lost 4 kgs.

Before coming to you I had put together a checklist of all the things I was hoping to achieve during my week, both health and weight related. The combination of the hikes, wonderful food and relaxing in your lovely house resulted in my ticking off every single item on the list. Truly a surprise which I had not expected. Thank you for an amazing week, see you again next June.

…I was initially apprehensive about going to a country I didn’t know to spend a week with people I didn’t know. But right from the very start I was made to feel as if we were old friends. I really enjoyed the incredible scenery on the hikes, the food was just amazing and it all passed so fast. I just wish I had the time to do this every month! Thank you, thank you.

Steph, I was so happy after my week with you all at Nefeli. A newbie to hiking is now obsessed with it.
