About the Names
Elysium is an English word which means state of great happiness or contentment. It comes from Greek Mythology where Elysium was the place where pure souls went to rest. Ancient Greek for Heaven. A place or state of perfect happiness. A place to rest.
We have named this place Elysium because this is what we hope for people to take away with them when they leave. It is a place that feels like home when you arrive. A home away from home where weary travellers of life can rest their tired feet and for a moment take the time to refill and refuel.
Currently Elysium has two branches, The Space, which is a 2 bedroom self-catering cottage and Alila Pottery which is my pottery studio from which I create my own work and teach weekly classes, private classes and workshops.
