she she Retreats: Contemporary wellbeing for Her in 2023

Spain

Nature heals and so are connectivity, inner peace, rituals, movement, nourishment, creativity or even adventure. If you are seeking for such experiences in one place, look no further — she she retreats may offer it all. "Our retreats offer daily movement, delicious food, art workshops, essential oils and time for relaxation, without a strict schedule or enforced detoxing - because we know that many women arrive on our retreats needing a break from their demanding professional and personal lives. Both of us like to live well and enjoy daily pleasures - like a glass of organic wine or fresh baked sweets - and so we want our retreat guests to feel right at home with us, that they can really let their hair down and indulge in a magical retreat experience." This year's been different for obvious reasons, yet developing healthy routines to support our own wellbeing has become top priority. Join one of the she she retreats in 2023. The retreats are for her, who seeks adventure. And if you've been wondering too, we've asked Albertine and Steph, the lovely founders to explain; who is she? Read on!

Casa Cook Samos

Greece

Samos is an island rich in both history and beauty. Beyond its bustling beaches and lively town, there are countless hidden gems, including quaint churches, fresh waterfalls and lush forests in the shaded inland mountains just begging to be explored. Inspired by traditional greek houses, or kamares, found in samian villages, the architecture is down-to-earth and inclusive. The historic concept of a Grecian village has been embodied in the modern space, where the hotel’s infinite swimming pools act as the town centre of each small ‘neighborhood’ within the hotel — offering space to immerse with those around you when the mood strikes, or retreat back to your room to recharge in complete solitude.

Nōema

Greece

Nōema is an expression of the Cycladic way of living. A culture of natural warmth and simple pleasures, of deep-rooted traditions as elemental as the wind and sun, the rocks and sea. A place where life moves with the rhythm of nature and being together is what really matters. A space for spontaneous gatherings and ritual festivities, Nōema embodies the open-hearted soul of Mykonos, where every occasion is an opportunity for a feast. In the Cycladic home, life centres around the courtyard, or avli. A secret garden protected from the elements, where family and friends come together to eat and drink, share stories and songs.

Special Tokyo guide by Julianna

Japan

During the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 — besides following the Games — a part of our digital playtime was browsing Tokyo’s hotspots thanks to the wonderful Local’s Lore community. Never having been to Japan, finding Julianna who worked as a volunteer at the Games was a pure bliss. Especially so, as there were only two non-Japanese volunteers working at the Tokyo Olympics. One of the lucky ones is a 24-year-old Hungarian student, Julianna Molnar. She studies art history at the Japanese capital’s Ochanomizu University and had initially come to Japan because she is very interested in contemporary Japanese art and culture. We sat down with Julianna to talk about her experiences at the Games, life in Tokyo and her 10+1 must-visit-spots in the city…
