About Vigla Village
The first thing to strike you about Vigla Village is it's sublime location on the Ionian Coast of the Greek island of Kefalonia. It's a feast for the senses as you take in the intoxicating smell of the pine and eucalyptus trees and the crystal clear, deep blue of the Ionian sea. Coupled with the welcoming and open-hearted Greek hospitality of Anna and Angelos, you cannot help but begin to relax as soon as you arrive.
Perched high on a clifftop, the clean and comfortable apartments with private balconies, overlook the inspiring panorama. Just a short stroll away you can take the picturesque path down to Vigla's own private beach and the warm and inviting sea.
Vigla Village simply blows you away; it's the sort of place that you want to come back to time after time.
The daily programme
Each day will begin with a flowing asana class on our wonderful yoga platform overlooking the endless blue ocean, opening the body and attuning the mind to the breath.
Morning practice will be followed by a hearty breakfast. Then you will be free to head off down to the beach, relax by the pool or explore the stunning beauty of the surroundings.
The group will meet again in the late afternoon for a second more restorative yoga session, often including pranayama and meditation as part of the practise. The classes will be suitable for all levels and yoga experience. There will be one yoga free day during the week.
In the evenings, there are a few charming traditional Greek tavernas within walking distance of Vigla. Lunch and dinner aren't included in the cost to give people the option to go for dinner as a group or self cater if they prefer, each apartment has a small kitchen.
Things to do
One could quite easily while away a week of deep rest and rujuvenation here, enjoying the wonderful private beach, swimming pool and tennis courts on offer. There's also plenty of space at Vigla Village to find a quiet spot in the shade of the trees enjoying the colours and fragrance of the beautiful flowers.
The local village, Spartia, also has its' own pretty beach just a 10 minute walk away and a small centre with a couple of shops and a restaurant.
For those of you with an adventurous spirit you could hire a car to explore the outstanding beauty of this island. Caves, boat trips, snorkelling, fishing, trips to stunning local villages and a visit to Myrtos, known to be one of the world's most beautiful beaches, are amongst some of the many things on offer in Kefalonia.
Vigla Village offers self catering apartments which are clean, spacious and have air conditioning and private balconies with sea views. All apartments have between one and three bedrooms and share a bathroom, small lounge area and kitchen facilities.
A note to say a huge thank you for a wonderful yoga holiday in beautiful Kefalonia. I had the most amazing time and am feeling totally refreshed and energised! Vigla was a perfect combination of stunning scenery, peaceful surroundings and warm hospitality from Anna and her family. Definitely somewhere I would love to go back to. I have also made so many new friends from our wonderful group.Melissa
My first ever yoga retreat was a great success in every respect. Ceri was professional, knowledgeable, friendly and fun. The classes were varied and she accommodated different levels of ability well. Resort was perfect, v quiet, clean, simple accommodation well run by Anna. Would have no hesitation recommending this.Susie
I had such a great time. Ceri is an inspirational teacher. She combines deep understanding of the principles of yoga with a refreshing down to earth approach, kindness and a sense of humour. I couldn't recommend the holiday enough. Thank you Ceri!Peter
I had a wonderful holiday in Kefalonia. It was my first yoga holiday and I will definitely be going on another one. Ceri Lee was a brilliant teacher; the yoga sessions were planned but flexible enough in content and style to account for our differing levels of yoga practice. The yoga was challenging (in a good way!) but also made me feel restored. Ceri provided excellent instruction, but also observed the group closely so that she could offer further tips or alternatives. The yoga platform overlooks the sea and is surrounded by fragrant eucalyptus and pine trees - it's a special, beautiful place! Vigla Village is a lovely place - the owner Anna was very helpful and provided a warm welcome.Sally
This was my second yoga holiday at Villa Vigla and I have thoroughly enjoyed both weeks. The venue is absolutely beautiful with simple, spotlessly clean accommodation, perched on a cliff top overlooking the turquoise Ionian Sea. Both teachers (Ceri Lee & Dory Walker) have been expert, kind, helpful & keen to pass on their deep love of yoga. Anna & Angelo (who own Villa Vigla) cannot do enough for you & the breakfasts are AMAZING! I will definitely be going again next year!DM
A truly wonderful week in a beautiful location, with a wonderful host and one of the best yoga teachers I have had in my 6 years of practicing yoga. Thank you!!Kate
