Aspros Potamos emanates tranquility, and spirituality, simplicity, and a return to nature and mother earth. Peacefulness abounds. We encourage you to turn off your cell phones, go to sleep when it gets dark and wake up with the dawn of a new day.

‘The whole experience of my visit in May was blissful. I was in need of some restorative relaxation and this was perfect. Aspros Potamos is a beautiful place to stay, so tranquil. We had delicious breakfasts, my room was really pretty and comfortable, with a little verandah and view over the valley filled with olive trees. Yoga in natural surroundings, with birdsong and the sound of the stream nearby, as the sun started to warm the earth, was an amazing way to start the day. Debs is such a lovely teacher, she has a wisdom and kindness that flows through in her teaching, and brings in a spiritual connection to nature and place, something I think that has been generally neglected in our busy worlds. We were so well looked after, visiting beautiful hilltop villages, beaches and tavernas overlooking the sea, which was just wonderful. I headed home feeling so good!’


‘I loved my time on retreat, it was very special. It was absolutely just what I needed, to escape from the world, to restore and reset. The yoga was so good, especially the evening sessions on the beach, with reiki healing. Thank you so much.’
