On a Healthy Options holiday, you can do as little or as much as you like. We invite you to wake up each day to a new adventure. There are lots of Yoga and Pilates and Fitness lessons - every day for all levels
On top of that, we offer many other activities to inspire you. Try paddle-boarding, sailing, rafting & snorkelling; wander hidden paths through olive groves on guided walks; let our bike rides teach you to be a kid again; soothe your energised muscles with a relaxing massage. The best part is – this is all included in your holiday.
Freedom is what we offer. You’re free to take friends, make friends, chill out or take part - we’re here to help you do that. Our friendly, laid-back atmosphere and beachfront accommodation appeals to everyone, whether you’re on your own or with others.
Yoga/Pilates and Fitness Classes
Whether you’ve just started practicing Yoga/Pilates or it has been part of your daily routine for years, you’ll find the enthusiastic and professional style of our teachers refreshing and inspiring.
Our teachers provide a great mix of classes. Every day, we offer classes aimed at beginner, improver and combined levels. All our classes are designed to be progressive and will enable you to begin or continue your practice at home. This is one of our sources of pride – what you learn on a Healthy Options holiday will help you progress and improve even when you’re back home!
We also offer a full range of fitness classes aimed at all ability levels from and body sculpt to circuits and Swiss Ball
There’s nothing more rewarding and grounding than a massage to soothe tired muscles and so we’ve included a half hour massage in your holiday. If you want to pamper your muscles some more, it is perfectly possible to extend your massage or book additional sessions during the week, though extra local charges would apply. We have a range of massage styles on offer.
Stand up Paddleboard Tour
Stand-up paddle-boarding is best enjoyed early in the morning, when the water is as flat as a mill pond and the sun soaks your skin with just the right amount of warmth. Paddle-boarding is great fun and an exhilarating way to keep fit while you enjoy an entirely different perspective of the world from the water. Accompanied by expert instructors, you’ll have a great time while you are perfectly safe in our warm, tranquil waters. You are also free to take the boards out on the water whenever you like.
There is a weekly trip in a traditional Greek boat around the smaller offshore islands where you will get to chance to stop for a swim or a spot of snorkelling and meditation on a stunning and unspoiled beach, before returning to the beautiful harbour.
Mountain Bike Tour
Learn to be a kid again on our guided cycle tour! We have some beautiful rides lined up for you. Enjoy the simple paths through the orchards and groves just behind our centres or challenge yourself to more invigorating routes along the mountainsides. You’re always welcome to join our free organised group rides or take a bike out by yourself and enjoy the freedom to roam around to your heart’s content.
Leaving after breakfast, we’ll drive 45 minutes to the famous Acheron gorge and springs. According to Greek mythology, this was the exact spot where Achilles was bathed by his mother Thetis to gain his superhero powers (and where the term Achilles’ heel was coined). Here we’ll walk through a shady, cool forest until we get to the springs. We’ll try to gain our own superpowers by walking to the middle of the river right up to the spectacular gorge itself. Sometimes the water is only ankle deep; sometimes you’ll be wading waist deep. If you want, we’ll supply wetsuit trousers. The fresh water is chilly, even in the height of summer!
Out of the gorge you’ll again get to try something new – rafting down the river! Led by an experienced guide, you’ll ride downstream on a rigid inflatable boat.
