Kindly find attached the fact sheet of Euphoria Retreat where you will find further information about our signature spa.
Food and Drink
We have one Restaurant – the Gaia Restaurant with its unique monastery style setting and communal tables. The food the retreat serves mainly consists of a Mediterranean and Greek diet.
All the meals are a la carte, even the breakfast, and all the food is locally sourced and organic, grown from local farms only half an hour from the spa.
The concept of creating dishes that balance all key flavors is to create an unforgettable gastronomic experience, but also to detoxify the body, boost metabolism, fight inflammation and reinforce the immune system, at the same time as satisfying all your senses. A private dining area is also available for exclusive
use in the Leoncini Mansion. Euphoria Retreat’s bar offers fresh and healthy drinks, smoothies and light alcohol.
An Extraordinary SPA Hotel in Greece
Like all the best destination spa retreats, Euphoria is its own universe. One filled with codes, patterns and deeper meaning. An exploration of our spa is also a journey of self-discovery. As our founder Marina Efraimoglou says: “When you explore Euphoria we give you the keys to explore yourself. This exploration brings greater freedom and happiness, it is an adventure with no pre-conditions.”
Except the facilities we would like to inform you that at Euphoria Retreat guests can follow a full wellness program.
Our Area à A magical Greek Landscape.
The stuff of legends, the exquisite Peloponnese in southern Greece is a peninsula rich in the myths and mysticism of Olympian gods and mythical heroes. Inhabited since pre-historic times, and dotted with pine forests, Byzantine churches and lofty hilltop villages, this historical landscape exudes a palpably healing energy rooted, much like our spa treatments, in ancient civilizations and cultural lineage. The symbiotic relationship between nature and culture is at the very heart of our Euphoria Retreat experience, whether you come for a weekend retreat or a full wellness programme. Daily concerns drop away as you feel the sun on your back; the Mediterranean light is uplifting and renewing. Mount Taygetus provides a rich and majestic backdrop and the Eurotas River, which flows through the valley, was once a training ground for the Spartans, famed for their strength, courage and fortified healthy lifestyles. For dreamers, the famous archaeological site of Mystras is a must – awash with wild-flowers, breath-taking views, time-faded frescoes and flickering church candles. Tempting day trips include the charming coastal town of Gytheion, a 40-minute drive, and little-known Elafonissos Island, fringed with white-sand beaches. Yes, the islands of Greece are famous for their beauty, but trust us, the Peloponnese will enchant you with its sacred soul.
The Jewel of Mystical Mystras à A short drive from our doorstep or bracing trek away, guests at Euphoria Retreat can layer a transporting visit to the fortified town of Mystras into their wellness spa retreat. For anyone wanting to step away from the technological advances of modern life and immerse themselves the peace, beauty of a landscape which will inspire, Mystras, ‘the wonder of Morea’, is a must. Fought over by Franks, Venetians, Byzantines and Ottomans, and now an important and visually stunning Unesco World Heritage site, there is something mesmerising about exploring its lost Byzantine churches, monasteries, palaces and ruins. This is where the great neo-Platonic scholar, Gemistus Pletho, started his school of philosophy before going on to revive Greek learning in Western Europe. While seven centuries have passed since the height of Byzantium, the same aura that undoubtedly inspired the intellectual, artistic and architectural blossoming of the time continues undimmed to this day. Soak up the holy atmosphere of the Cathedral of Agios Demetrios and the Monastery of Panagia Perivleptos, wander quiet cobbled pathways, walk meandering paths down the mountainside and stop in stillness to admire immense, profoundly healing views.
