Accommodation

During this retreat, you will stay at Mouikis Sun Village which has a unique location at Lakithra village, offering its visitors top quality services apart from its magical location. It overlooks the Ionian Sea and Ainos mountain, as well as the islet of Zeus with the chapel of Virgin Mary Diotissa and the island of Zakynthos.

Do keep in mind that this hotel resort is bit remote and requires a shuttle to get to most places. There are shuttles offered for 2 EUR per person and taxis for around 10 EUR per person to get to and from the main parts of town. However, Sean will be hiring a van (or two, depending on the size of the group) for transportation into town, to the training facility, and to the beaches.

The relaxing breakfast area, in earthy tints, is the most beautiful setting for starting a day while on vacations. Balancing between the colors of the sand and the sea, the restaurant “Gevseis Eftyxias” (meaning "tastes of happiness") offers real happiness with savors coming from the traditional Mediterranean cuisine in a space with character and personal style, generously providing a complete satisfaction of senses.

From the swimming pool and the beautiful outdoor spaces up to the playground and the tennis court, you can look far away to the Ionian Sea. Mouikis Sun Village completes its services with an area for well-being and beauty, aiming at satisfying the demands of all visitors.

Included excursions

Assos castle tour

Explore the ruins and discover small chapels, ancient structures, and beautiful landscapes. The strategic location of the castle allowed supervising the whole sea area. From here, you can get a beautiful view of the bay.

Trips to pristine beaches

Throughout the week, you will be exposed to so many beautiful beaches and amazing views, you might never want to leave. Whether it is doing some Muay Thai in the sand or relaxing between training sessions, you will be able to enjoy some of the most remarkable white sand beaches that Kefalonia has to offer.

Trip to Drogarati Cave

Become a cave explorer and visit the remarkable Drogarati Cave. This cave was discovered when a strong earthquake caused a collapse that revealed the cave’s entrance which has been open to the public since 1968. Drogarati is an impressive cave with incredible formations of stalactites and stalagmites. Not to mention, it is close to Melissani Lake which you will also be visiting.

Tour the magical Melissani Lake

Are you ready for a once in a lifetime type of experience? You will take a tour to this magical lake by entering the chamber via a rowboat. As you enter, you will notice that there is no roof as you pass from a narrow channel to the second chamber that is a big cavern with numerous stalactites and stalagmites. As a fun fact, mythology mentions that the cave was named after one of the nymphs, called Melissanthi, who committed suicide because god Pan was not responding to her love.

Experience the Greek nightlife

Do you want to see what the Greek nightlife is all about? To wrap up the trip, you can join the group to spend the final night at the Bass Club in the center of Kefalonia to dance the night away. This part of the trip is optional, of course.

Location

This holiday will take place in Lakithra, Kefalonia, a paradise on earth. Kefalonia is an island in the Ionian Sea, west of mainland Greece. It is marked by sandy coves and dry rugged landscapes. Its capital, Argostoli, was built on a hillside overlooking a narrow harbor. Kefalonia's indented coastline is made up of limestone cliffs, bays, and short strips of pristine white sand beaches, like Myrtos Beach in the north.

Earth and water, green and blue, the nature in its grandeur is to be found in one of the most beautiful villages of the island, Lakithra. This picturesque village where the retreat will take place is considered the ideal place for the traveler who seeks quality vacations. Its natural beauty, places of interest, and, especially, its unique location, inspired the poet Lord Byron since this is where he passed most of his time writing.
