A gloriously tranquil island of flowers, birds, green valleys and beautiful beaches, Tilos is the ideal place to go, to strip away the cares of modern life and relax. Island of Tilos is surrounded by imposing mountains, rocky and steep coasts, beaches with transparent water and caves. Medieval castles, a Byzantine monastery, many small churches and a village that is a declared cultural monument. Its natural beauty is unique, with more with more than 150 species of resident and migratory birds, over 650 plant varieties, and a permanent population hovering around 500. The locals play an extremely active role in the preservation of their cultural and natural heritage.
Tilos is set to be the first island in the Mediterranean powered by wind and solar energy. The island currently relies on oil-based electricity from neighbouring Kos, via a submarine cable that is vulnerable to faults. Power cuts are frequent. By installing a single wind turbine and small photovoltaic park, Tilos is creating a hybrid micro-grid that will generate and store energy.
The accommodation is 150 metres from Eristos Beach, in a private garden offering quality accommodation in a family environment.
The cost of the retreat includes everything you need for the full experience.
