Our Healthy Options Holiday programme is OPEN

No doubt you’ll have heard that the Greek islands have not yet been added to the UK Green travel list. This is altogether disappointing, surprising and at odds with the judgement of other European governments who have deemed the Ionian a safe destination for holidaymakers,  Our watersports centre here has been open since 15th May with guests from Germany, Belgium, Sweden ,the Netherlands and Israel already enjoying themselves immensely.

As you know we opened successfully last summer without any Covid cases at Healthy Options. Infection rates on Lefkas are currently negligible (the past four days have seen zero cases on Lefkas) ` and the Greek Government have confirmed that they expect all local residents of all Greek islands to be vaccinated by the end of June.  Given the large percentage of the UK population that will have been vaccinated by then too, we certainly expect that the Green light will be given on the next UK Govt review towards the end of June.  (* as of 17th June)

Holidays using our British Airways UK charter flight will not now operate until at least the 11th July but other flights are still currently operating so if anyone wants to join us in Vassiliki in June under the Amber travel protocols we are offering significant discounts. Please contact our UK office for details.

As far as Greece is concerned, both UK and EU visitors are welcome into Greece with either proof of a negative PCR test undertaken within 72 hours before arrival, or of 2 Covid vaccinations completed at least 14 days prior. While Greece is still amber on the UK map, quarantine is required on return to the UK, but once the Ionian islands are declared green, it is expected a test prior to return is all that's required as well as a PCR test on Day 2 back in the UK. To make this process at the Greek end as smooth as possible we are organising the required tests at our centre before your departure, so you do not lose valuable holiday time.

Should l book my holiday now or wait  for further news?

There is every reason to book your summer holiday now, if you haven't already. With our success in maintaining a Covid free environment for our clients last year, Lefkas currently reporting only one or two cases per week and the entire island population on schedule for being vaccinated by the end of June, as well as the lifting of travel restrictions already from Germany and Holland, we are expecting to be fully booked in short order.

Is it safe to book my holiday yet?

The simplest answer is that it has always been safe to book a holiday with us.  Your monies are completely ATOL protected (we hold ATOL 9464) .  Last year all clients booked on holidays that we were not able to provide as borders were closed due to the pandemic, were refunded on average within 48 hours or accepted a voucher for this year; an enviable record that puts many others to shame

Our centres

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.

Vassiliki - our activity-packed centre

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.

Syvota – tranquillity central

Our Syvota programme will be back in 2022.

Who will you meet on your holiday?

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.

 

Small group size

We keep group sizes small so that we can offer you personal attention. 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 for the large holiday operators. It does however mean that places are limited and often booked solid months in advance, especially during peak season. If you want to join us this summer, make sure you don’t wait too long before contacting us!

What’s included in your holiday?

For one low price, starting at £545, almost everything is included.
Here are some of the things which you can expect to be part of your holiday:
