OUR PRIVATE ISLAND RETREAT IN GREECE
Silver Island has been the home of the Christie family for 60 years and opened its doors and sublime tranquility, in 2013. For 10 years we have welcomed those in search of a sense of inner peace and an escape from the hustle and bustle of modern life. Our private island retreat lends itself to a peaceful and rejuvenating experience.
This is truly a magical place to practice the art and joy of yoga. A place you can unwind and merge with nature and self. Silver island yoga is about totally getting away, magic, nature, wellness, transformation and rejuvenation. Our wish is create an experience that inspires peace, abundance, serenity and mindful living.
You are invited to join us for a truly magical, unspoiled, utterly relaxing island retreat and a holiday of a lifetime.
GETTING TO OUR ISLAND RETREAT
The closest airport you need to fly into is Athens International Airport, Elefthérios Venizélos.
There are several options to get to the island and we find that most of our guests meet up to travel together.
The final step is on our local water taxi boat (pictured) which whisks you across to the island from the closest mainland town of Orei.
OUR ECO FRIENDLY ISLAND RETREAT
Silver Island is completely off grid! We pride ourselves in offering our guests a complete eco-retreat experience. We have a solar farm for lighting the island and our water is harvested and stored during the winter months.
We only use locally produced natural and biodegradable toiletries. We have an organic olive farm, recycle all our waste and support our community on the mainland by sourcing as much as we can locally.
Much of the magic that is Greece lies in the names of the islands. Many of these sun soaked jewels of the Aegean were named after the gods of Greek Mythology. Silver Island is no exception, as this is the birthplace of the is attributed to the this is Adam and Eve of Greek Mythology - Decallion and Pyrrha.
There is a small church close to the Main House on the island. The patron saints of the church are Cosmas and Damian.
