Paleochori is an artistic venue in Lefkada, Ionian Islands of Greece, hosting some special educational programs and retreats for dance and embodied movement.
Four and a half wooded hectares of land, on a side hill that enjoys a breathtaking view of Prigiponisia. The remote site of Paleochori offers only sounds of nature while the surrounding mountains provide a uniform evening shadow.
The land is cleaned and leveled with a number of retaining walls more than a hundred years old that have been recently restored, while the main element that stands out in the land is a large wooden patio of 100sm.
The space is equipped with autonomous wc facilities and showers with hot water, where we use only biodegradable soap and shampoo.
There are specially designed areas for resting in the shadow under the trees with swings and hammocks.
There is power in order to charger phones -even though we suggest our guests to enjoy some “unplugged” days- and we also use solar lamps in order to light the area.
Our primal need was to treat the surrounding space with care and respect for the environment and all the living beings of the land.
