Join us for a retreat tailored to provide authentic connection, quality time and maximum wellness support in Croatia’s best kept secret, Vis Island. With beautiful beaches, 17th-century Venetian architecture, gourmet seafood and a low-key vibe you’re sure to fall in love with this place. The producers of Mamma Mia! definitely did as they filmed the sequel here in 2017.
Vis is the furthest island in the Adriatic from the Croatian coast and has some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Surround yourself with the clearest blue water you’ve ever seen while enjoying the protected bays and secluded coves.
If history and architecture are more your thing then spend a day riding bikes through the network of tunnels built by the Yugoslav army or visiting the Archaeological Museum which contains several exquisite Greek sculptures. Vis is said to feel like Greece designed by the Dutch and it has held its natural beauty because it was closed to the public until 1989.

In October we'll be visiting the island just as the locals are settling into the normal rhythms of life. Kids are back in school, parents are at work and islanders are harvesting olives or grapes for the next season's wine collection. Some highlights worth noting are as follows:
197 sunshine hours in October w/ average temperatures of 68-70°F.
