The retreat is located in the peaceful village of Slatine on the island of Ciovo (Adriatic sea).
Ciovo is just a half hour boat ride from the marvelous ancient towns –Trogir and Split.The nearest airport is Split Airport, 14 km from the property.
Our house is located about a 100 meters from the sea and is situated in a nature reserve with beautiful hiking paths. It is beautifully situated among olive groves, walnut and fig trees, and consists of five apartments.
The beautiful nature invites to quiet, resting in the shade of a tree or enjoying the sun’s warm rays, meditative walks and to ”just be”. This is a good way to calm the mind, reduce stress and possible imbalances. Every morning we walk in silence to the old monastery and yogashala where we make soft morning yoga – overlooking the beautiful sea. Yinyoga or workshops in the afternoon. On your free time you might enjoy resting, getting/receiving aromatherapy massage, hiking or just being with yourself in stillness.
All of our food is vegetarian, vegan or raw. We use a lot of locally grown seasonal fruit, vegetables, spices and herbs as well as locally produced olive oil, cheeses and other goodies. We have a big garden with lots of vegetables, spices, olives, legumes, fruits, walnuts, potatoes…
The rest we buy in the local green market in Trogir and Split. All the meals we eat together. It is possible to be in the kitchen and to learn local cuisine.

A story about an ecological honey and a famous garlic from a small place Ljubitovica:
We offer a great chance for eco-honey testing and lecture on its healing properties.
Our special guest is Ivica Dragan Elez. He is one of few ecological beekeeper in Croatia. You can get samples of many of his products and get detailed information about anything that might interest you regarding beekeeping. He encourages other beekeepers in Croatia to turn to ecological production of honey and to offer their products to us. It is important to emphasize that non-ecological honey contains all sorts of harmful substances that remain even after treating the honeybees, therefore, only an ecological honey is truly healthy.
Croatia is a country of superb food quality. Numerous autochthonous alimentary products of the highest quality will be displayed on a special stand, each with its own story. For example, there is a very interesting story about garlic from a small place called Ljubovitica. In that village grows a special kind of garlic that, in synergy with a specific microclimate, results in an excellent product. Garlic from Ljubovitica was ranked number one on multiple health testing procedures, based on the samples of garlic from many different countries. It is also interesting to note that our ecological beekeeper is from Ljubovitica by origin and cultivates that very garlic on the soil of his ancestors.
