A panoramic view of the island of Sifnos in the Cyclades

Wonderful beaches, exceptional culinary traditions and hospitable, joyful people.

Sifnos meets all the requirements of an unforgettable holiday and complements them with ample opportunity for exercise and wellness.

There are times when sun and sea are only just the beginning of what you want from a holiday. You feel an intense need to replenish your energy; you seek physical exercise that will awaken your body and spiritual pursuits to help you relax. So, if you are looking for the beginning of what could be a brand new lifestyle, Sifnos has the answer.

In touch with nature

You might think that stepping onto the golden sands at Platis Gialos on this wonderful Cycladic paradise is an uplifting and invigorating experience in itself. And you’d be quite right. Take a dip in its crystalline waters, let your eyes wander along the picturesque hillsides which roll down to the coast; surrender to its very own exquisite rhapsody in blue.

And then, take a short stroll to where a shady olive grove makes a beautiful, cooling canopy and you will discover another dimension to add to your enjoyment of this delightful seashore retreat; a celebration of the arts of yoga, run by a teacher who knows how to bring the sparkle back to tired bodies and minds. Under her watchful tutelage, you will live a unique experience of exercise in the great outdoors, in the bracing atmosphere of the Aegean, with a view of the azure wonders of the archipelagos and against the backdrop of a Greek sky.  

Relaxing sounds of the sea  

Leave the lounger for a while and take up the challenge of an all-over work-out for body and mind.  There beneath the trees you can flex muscles you didn’t even know existed and restore your karma and wellness so that careworn days will evaporate like the wispy clouds above you and all your burdens are lifted in an instant from aching shoulders.

With the soothing sounds of the waves for company and the stunning surrounds, you will transcend to another plane and leave the island feeling renewed and fully rejuvenated, with that natural radiant glow which comes of exercising at one with the elements. This is truly an opportunity that should not be passed up.

Treat yourself to serenity

In general, Sifnos has a long list of options if you want to get into better shape. Swimming, water sports, remarkable architecture that you can only discover on foot, ancient footpaths that will reward you with magnificent views. Within the fabulous setting of Plati Gialos and in keeping with its philosophy of quiet luxury, Verina Suites  completes your holiday experience by offering a beachside yoga course in a specially prepared area, making the most of what nature has to offer.
