Ithaca

Spend Time Consciously.
Live Your Days With Intention.
Enliven Your Spirit Through Joyful Experience.

Itha108 is a Greek island retreat set in a place of outstanding natural beauty, providing a space specifically for peace, relaxation and practice.

One of the smallest in the Ionian island constellation, Ithaca, radiates with Grecian authenticity.  It’s shores play host to a long Homeric and mythical history whose many mysteries are senses amongst animated panorama and secretive coves. Itha108 our home for retreat, overlooks the sea, lives in the rocks and olive trees of the natural environment, and seamlessly allows passage indoors-outdoors making full use of the land and its treasures that extend to sweeping and hidden beaches below.
