Two Fantastic Greek Fishing Villages

Our two Healthy Options centres in Greece are both situated in lovely locations bordered by the crystal blue waters of the Ionian sea. They offer fabulous views and give you a strong flavour of traditional Greek life.  You can be sure you'll be warmly welcomed and looked after, whichever location you choose.

Vassiliki, the small fishing village on the island of Lefkas

Our main centre is located in the bay of Vassiliki, a small and friendly fishing town on the island of Lefkas.

Lefkas, or Lefkada as the Greek say, is a remarkably green island in the Ionian Sea on the west coast of Greece. It is the fourth largest island of the Ionian Islands, after Zakynthos, Kefalonia and Corfu. About 22,000 people call it home. Unlike many other islands with an agreeable Mediterranean climate, Lefkas is not spoilt by mass tourism but remains a calm and authentic place where people actually live.

On the southern corner of this green island you will find our base on Vassiliki beach. Vassiliki is a small fishing village unspoilt by modern tourism and our centre is a short walk along the waterfront from the centre of the village.

Syvota is another unspoiled and laid back fishing village in an area of outstanding natural beauty. With a traditional natural harbour and with gorgeous beaches and rocky coves stretching either side, Syvota is a perfect location for your relaxing and healthy holiday. 

Syvota is 90km to the north of Prevesa airport – it takes about 75 minutes to reach our lovely hotel.

2 minutes with Amy Chambers

16 maart 2017

Amy joined us in 2011 to run the fitness sessions at our Vassiliki centre and we haven’t looked back since, she is now manager and resident fitness guru of our activity-packed centre in Vassiliki. Growing up in Cyprus, it was there that her love of watersports and triathlons began. During university, she competed in the British Triathlon Championships and then went on to teach kitesurfing, windsurfing, and diving in various locations around the world. Throughout this time, her love of all things fitness-orientated has continued to grow – she is a Level 3 Personal Trainer, spinning and circuits instructor and holds various swimming and aqua qualifications. Amy has a wonderfully fun and realistic approach to fitness and loves teaching at all levels. But don’t worry, she won’t be enrolling anyone in a boot camp, after all, our philosophy of doing as little or as much as you like always applies!
