Kos Island

Kos is one of the most loved islands of the Dodecanese

Island is known as “The island of Hippocrates” for having given birth to the most famous doctor in history.
Kos is 43 km long and 2 km wide at the narrowest point, up to a maximum of 6 km at its largest point. It is the third island of the Dodecanese for size and the second for the population. Its close proximity to the coasts of Turkey and more precisely to the ancient city of Halicarnassus, now known as Bodrum, makes it particularly fascinating as it offers an interesting combination of eastern and western elements. Even though Kos is known for its tourism, it has done well in maintaining its soul. Escaping from the tourists is easily done, and you will always manage to find a hidden beach.

Kos Island

Climate

Mediterranean Weather

From April to November, a period during which the rains are very rare, the island offers a Mediterranean climate of excellence that gives the possibility to fully enjoy the sea and many sunny days.
At the same time, there is a summer wind present that allows even the high temperatures to feel much more comfortable, enabling everyone to stay fairly active through the hotter months. There is a small chance of rain in the months of September and October, but this usually disperses within a few hours.

Climate

Accessibility

The retreat is not suitable for those unable to cycle or hike or engage in physical activities, however, provisions can be made for some disabilities, contact us directly to discuss whether we can accommodate you sufficiently.

Eco Practices

We support an eco-friendly environment, one being your primary mode of transport for the week is either bicycle or foot. We also encourage recycling and a minimal plastic approach. We fully discourage the use of single-use plastic, and your host will be talking a lot about her journey with natural products and giving you the local knowledge on where to find the best natural products on the island including skin care and foods, you may even find a little natural gift in your welcome pack.
