The Retreat

Greece has some of the richest cultural heritage imaginable. My Art & Culture Retreat is the perfect opportunity to immerse yourself in a rich, historical story that spans back to ancient Greek times


Over thousands of years the lush, verdant island of Corfu has been occupied by different cultures, including the Ottomans and Venetians. The result is a unique blend of architecture, art, music, dance, food and festivals for you to discover. 


Whilst you’ll stay at a luxurious, secluded retreat, you’ll uncover the authentic experiences of a traveller, rather than a tourist. I’ll introduce you to the locals I know, including a professional dance teacher with decades of experience in this wonderful Greek tradition. We’ll enjoy traditional music and dance classes where you’ll be able to learn dances to take part in the Panigiri. This really is an incredibly special festival where you’ll laugh, eat and dance arm in arm with locals who consider this night a highlight of their calendar.   On top of that unforgettable experience, we’ll also explore the wonder and importance of olive oil production, visit ancient landmarks and much, much more. 


This is an experience of real Greek culture at its finest with everything organised for you. Relax, create unforgettable memories and let Corfu capture your heart as it has done mine.

Your Host

I’m your host, Lynette. I became a resident on the island of Corfu after falling in love in a story that spans South Africa, London and Greece. But that’s one for another time. I’m looking forward to giving you the warmest welcome and sharing my love of Corfu with you. Having been immersed in Greek culture for a while now, I’m no stranger to picking olives, making wine or planting vegetables and I want to share my firsthand experience of everyday life so that you can enjoy it too. Greece is a constant source of inspiration to me and it’s my honor to make sure you get to experience authentic Greece and its most beautiful gems.

Location

The jewel of the Ionian Sea, Corfu with its azure waters, lush hillsides, blue skies, beautiful beaches, delicious food, and historical monuments will ensure an unforgettable trip. I’ve spent the last few years uncovering the very best that Corfu has to offer so that you don’t have to do all the hard work. Corfu is a constant source of inspiration to me and it would be my honour to make sure you get to experience authentic Greece and its most beautiful gems.
