Vassiliki Resort

The resort centre is situated just 10 minutes walk along the beach from our hotel; a pretty harbour side village which has a traditional and olde-world feel to it, lots of shopping and friendly bars or colourful Tavernas which buzz with life until late in the evening.

Out and About

Eating out

The Greeks are known for their hospitality. Eating out in the local Taverna’s is a super experience and by far the most popular option; simply because the food is so good, very inexpensive and the welcome is so warm.

You can expect all kinds of local and international favourites in Vassiliki's harbour side restaurants. Enjoy Greek specialities like moussaka, saganaki and grilled kebabs alongside pizza, pasta and chinese - as well as plenty of fresh sea food. Most meals are served with fries or fresh Greek salads, which are a speciality.

Nightlife

Vass really comes alive at night, but fear not - our Hotel is situated far enough away from the busy strip to be completely free from noise! Many will prefer just to relax and enjoy the comforts of our Club hotel and some of the quieter bars nearby, but for those that like a party, there is always one to be had!"

Vassiliki Wind & Conditions

Typical pattern: • Mornings: F1-2 • Afternoons: F4-6

The Thermal Wind (often referred to as ‘Eric’) is amazingly predictable, starting in the morning with a gentle on-shore Force 1-2 breeze with flat water, perfect for family groups and beginners and experienced sailors experimenting with new moves. The wind strengthens after lunch to an exhilarating Force 4-6 and some days up to Force 7 or 8. This very reliable wind brings expert sailors far and wide to Vassiliki. Beginners and intermediates can (generally) carry on sailing through the afternoon with a smaller rig, whilst our experienced team of instructors provide safety cover. On occasion, we may need to limit what abilities and equipment can launch - this is entirely to ensure safety.

TOP TIP! The wind is fantastic in Vassiliki throughout the whole season, but is generally a little more regular and consistent from mid-June until the end of August.

Relaxation

Vassiliki has beautiful beaches , bays and inlets - perfect for swimming, sun bathing and snorkelling. Kayak or paddle board excursions along with boat trips and cycle rides to nearby Cephalonia are very popular.

You may also wish to try the wine tasting tours or perhaps hire a car from £20 a day to see more of the beautiful island.

Vassiliki Windsurfing

Vassiliki is suited to all levels of windsurfer, beginner to expert, and regarded by many as the 'windsurf capital' of Europe...what better place to be? Vass offers consistent winds for all abilities, providing a great learning environment with calm morning winds, which gradually build during the afternoon to give the intermediate and advanced sailors an exciting playground.

From 'Start Windsurfing’ for novice sailors to intermediate & expert lessons and courses including; use of harnesses, foot-straps, water starts, carve gybes and tricks - our RYA Centres give you the freedom to make use of professional tuition for no extra charge, and go home with a new found qualification! Our enthusiastic team of instructors are on hand to provide top quality tuition, give you a helping hand with rigging and carrying equipment and provide safety cover, as well as reviewing the days efforts with you, over a beer at the beach bar!

TOP TIP! The wind is fantastic in Vassiliki throughout the whole season, but is generally a little more regular and consistent from mid-June until the end of August.

All sails up to around 6.0m are rigged on skinny masts in Vassiliki. All of our sails are expertly rigged on skinny masts (up to 6.0m) with lightweight booms, adjustable harness lines and uphauls.
