The Spectator - Spartan health spa that nursed my foot injury

08/09/2019, The Spectator, Max Pemberton

Max Pemberton discusses the Spartan health spa that nursed his foot injury to recovery at the Euphoria Retreat.

"Situated amid a pine forest on the edge of the UNESCO world heritage site of Mystras and with breathtaking views down to the ancient village of Sparta just a few kilometres away, this retreat is steeped in ancient history that relaxes and inspires in equal measure. The backdrop to this Spa really sets it apart and what’s more, many of the treatments and activities have been ingeniously designed to make the most of the location, with yoga in amongst the woods, for example, or meditation overlooking the valleys.

I feel like I’ve been given my life back. It’s hard to under-estimate the effect that the mindfulness – especially given the extraordinary backdrop – has had on my overall well being, so I’ve already vowed to return next year to improve my yoga technique and brush up on my mindfulness practise. This place is a real gem of a find."
