Hidden away in sunny southwest Florida, GYMNOS is a retreat from the noisy, busy world. A spacious house, arts studio, garage workshop, post and beam barn, open pasture, citrus grove, vegetable garden and nature trails all support a dream of healthy, land-based self-sufficiency and welcoming hospitality. GYMNOS RETREAT is on its way to becoming a small communal farm for naturists, and is already producing fruit, vegetables and herbs that are used daily at the dinnertable. The real magic of this little paradise though, is its extraordinary beauty, peace and privacy. Set on five park-like acres where outdoor living 365 days a year is possible, GYMNOS is nature-oriented, naturist, and free-spirited. Those who would appreciate a retreat from life’s stresses and a chance to commune with the earth free of clothes or cares are always welcome. This place is so full of warmth, sunshine, wildlife and beauty it really must be shared. The deer, rabbits, hawks, bears, panthers, woodpeckers and butterflies all seem to love it here. You would too!
Hi, I'm Reef
Ready to act on a deeply held belief that we humans must learn our most important life lessons directly from nature, I left the cold of New England for a new, warmer outdoor oriented adventure. A life-long nudist, I've been a teacher, designer, musician, gardener, caterer and several other things. They're all being put to good use here. I'm living this land based life experiment on a slightly different path and I welcome you to come check it out. It really is a little hidden paradise.

Check back here often as new photos and text are added when time from outdoor activity allows. If you'd like to support one of our current projects, have a look at the HELP page.
