O-Eleonas is an art retreat on the island of Corfu, one of the most beautiful and historic Greek islands.  Here you can ignite your own creativity among local and international artists who are inspired by the culture, nature, music and cuisine of Corfu. Whatever your age or ability, you can create something beautiful under the guidance of internationally accomplished artists in the studios and grounds of a restored olive mill in the historic village of Kompitsi, which we have restored as Villa Inspirante. 

IF YOU ASK ME WHAT I CAME TO DO IN THIS WORLD, I, AN ARTIST, WILL ANSWER YOU: I AM HERE TO LIVE OUT LOUD

Weather permitting, we are going to have most of our classes outdoors under the olive trees. I also included a few photos of the taverna next door where we are going to have several of our meals cooked by Kyria Maria and her daughter-in-law Niki. The sound of the bells of the goats signals the arrival of our local shepherd Nikos, who comes by every afternoon with his goats and waves hello to the guests. A few steps outside the villa the guests can take walks to the ancient Venetian Well where the villagers used to get their water.
