ANAFI Cyclades

Ideal destination for hiking

Anafi is a small island situated on the south eastern side of Cyclades, close to Santorini.
Due to its small size and few inhabitants, Anafi remains a pure island, untouched by mass tourism.
It has only one village and numerous crystal beaches around its coastline.
Chora, the capital village, is constructed on the mountain slopes and offers a breathtaking view of the Aegean Sea and unforgettable sunsets.

Isolated in its simplicity, Anafi is an ideal destination for an alternative retreat!

A variety of activities can be offered during our stay, including hatha yoga classes, music workshops and trekking tours on beautiful trails and sites of the island.
At the same time, the schedule will include plenty of free time for everyone to enjoy the sun, the beach, a book and just relax on their own personal way.
