* While there remains some uncertainty about holiday travel at this time, we have taken the decision to postpone re-opening our Syvota centre in 2022. However, Alexia Dranidis, who was previously the manager in Syvota, is organising two weeks of her own styled programme there in June. For more details please email her directly - details are on our pricing page.
We’ve chosen two hidden gems, both delightfully set in glorious surroundings. Both will revive your senses and captivate you with the laid-back atmosphere of traditional Greek culture, but each of them has a style, spirit and flavour all their own. Learn more about the differences between our two centres.
We welcome you to the beautiful Greek island of Lefkas, the emerald of the Ionian Sea, your home for your holiday. It’s an island famous for its natural beauty, its lush, verdant hillsides and award-winning beaches a world away from the ravages of modern tourism.
Choose Vassiliki if you’re looking for a place filled with energy and a sprightly vibrancy where there’s loads to do. Vassiliki is a tiny, classically Greek fishing village, settled alongside a wide, beautiful bay at the southernmost tip of the island. It’s renowned as one of the top spots in the world for watersports and you’ll enjoy the thrill of sailing as well as your own little paddleboard safari, among a huge choice of other activities - check out the Vassiliki sample schedule here.
Our Syvota programme will be back in 2023.
Our Healthy Options holidays are designed for anyone who wants more out of their holiday than just a suntan. Our holidays are suitable for solo travellers, couples and groups; for the young and for the wise; for those who love exercise and adventure and for those just starting out on their healthy journey.
At Healthy Options, we pride ourselves on the friendly and warm atmosphere of our holidays, where we see everyone as an individual with unique qualities and challenges. This is one of the things that sets us apart from the large holiday operators. If you like the smallest groups with even more personal attention, be sure to book in the off season, when groups tend to be the smallest, or watch out for our special Beginner’s Week.
For one low price, starting at SFr.680, almost everything is included.
Here are some of the things which you can expect to be part of your holiday:
Choose between our cosy and well-appointed bed-to-beach hotels and self-catering apartments. Most rooms look out over the sparkling sea or the surrounding hills, which are at their finest in the dawn light and at dusk. If you’re looking for a bit more luxury, our comfiest hotel is in Syvota. If you’re a solo traveller who’d like to save cost by sharing a room, be sure to read about our Willing to share programme on our pricing page.
Yes, we have a huge range of Yoga, Pilates and fitness classes for beginners and for the more experienced alike. On top of that, we offer guided bike rides, aqua-safari boat trip, cycling, sailing, paddle-boarding, swimming, snorkelling, herbal walks and massage. Note that while our two centres offer a similar programme, details may differ. See our Activities page for details.
Our on-site bar and restaurants provide a range of tasty, homemade fare; fresh salads, Mediterranean snacks and meals from breakfast all the way through to early evening. Meals, other than breakfast in our Syvota location, are not included, giving you optimal freedom to venture out into the village and enjoy the flavours of the local tavernas, bars, cafes and fish restaurants.
Our social evenings in Vassiliki are legendary; our chilled-out cocktail nights are friendly and fun while our weekly BBQs are more up tempo with live music. We share our social evenings with Wildwind Sailing holidays, making this a perfect opportunity to meet new people and make new friends. If you’re style is more calm and tranquil, then Syvota is ideal for you.
Your holiday is set in a stunningly pretty location, steeped in Greek culture and traditions. The orange and olive groves provide tranquil surroundings for cycle rides or evening walks off the beaten track. The picturesque harbour, not far from your hotel, is the perfect setting for a romantic evening stroll. The surrounding hills glow pink and orange in the dawn light and the people of the village are warm and welcoming, positively delighting to show off the beauty and culture of their town.
As almost all of our available spaces in July and August this summer are already filled up, we have taken the decision to open up our 2023 summer season room charts rather earlier than normal.Read on
