'Nothing great is created suddenly, any more than a bunch of grapes or a fig. If you tell me that you desire a fig. I answer you that there must be time. Let it first blossom, then bear fruit, then ripen.' Epictetus. Spectacular property on one of the greenest of the Greek islands, built by someone who grew up there. Local architecture mixed with classical. A private, secluded space offering serenity and natural beauty. The retreat is built on vast land secluded from traffic. It is surrounded by mature trees, vineyards and olive groves. It is peaceful and serene. At night you see endless shooting stars, at dawn you hear the hypnotic song of the cicadas. You can spend the night with local musicians and listen to local folk music!

There are two Villa Suites, one with two large bedrooms and connected bathroom, (sleeps 4) one with two large bedrooms and one single room with connected bathroom and small kitchenette (sleeps 6) Perfect for families! We can also arrange for more guests with sleeping cots in the main house for an extra fee, just ask. The cornerstones of Wild Fig Retreat are rejuvenation, reflection and reconnection – an alluring escape from the stresses of daily life surrounded by nature. We are interested in your contribution as well to our retreat. If you are a writer looking for a peaceful place to start that novel, a musician trying to finish an album, a painter or poet or person in search of a new path…or you simply want to escape, this is the place for you. If you want to share your story and talents with our community, let us know and we would love to have you teach a class!

About the neighbourhood
Zakynthos is known as the 'greenest' of islands, and we are located in the relatively secluded north, away from the large tourist hotels and beaches, on the road to Porto Vromi, from where you embark to the famous Shipwreck beach. Our nearest village is Maries, named after Mary Magdalene, who, rumor has it stepped ashore in 12 a.d. on her way to Rome. It is a stunning beautiful island known for its rocky beaches, ancient and authentic villages, and long, winding roads into breathtaking landscapes. We love it here and are happy to share with you are favorite tavernas, secluded swimming coves, we can take you fishing, for bike rides or hiking, teach you yoga, or just put you to work on our 18 hectare eco-farm, it's up to you!
Getting around
We are happy to pick you up at the airport, for a 50 Euro fee, or rent a scooter, quad or car, which is recommended as you will want to explore all the island has to offer!!!
