On a Healthy Options holiday, you can do as little or as much as you like. We invite you to wake up each day to a new adventure. Our Yoga, Pilates and fitness classes are for everyone, from complete beginners through to the more experienced.
All our classes are run by qualified professionals who are passionate about what they do.
On top of that, we offer many other holiday activities to inspire and invigorate you. Try paddle-boarding, sailing, white water rafting and snorkelling; wander hidden paths through olive groves on our guided walks; let our bike rides teach you how to be a kid again; soothe your energised muscles with a relaxing massage. The best part is – this is all included in your holiday.
You’ll have plenty of time for yourself. Take time out in the simplicity and peacefulness of solitude – relaxing on the beach, sipping a Greek coffee in a kafenion as you watch the world go by, enjoying the luxury of reading your book in the shade of a eucalyptus tree on the lawn, or just sunbathing by the pool.
Freedom is what we offer. You’re free to take friends, make friends, chill out or take part - we’re here to help you do that. Our friendly, laid-back atmosphere appeals to everyone: solo travellers, couples and groups of all ages and nationalities are all part of our Healthy Options community. Come by yourself. Come with friends. Come with your family or your partner.
Whether you’re adventuring on your own or with others, you’ll stay in our comfortable beachfront accommodations, looked after beautifully by our friendly and hospitable team of locals. Whether you choose our action-packed centre in Vassiliki or the more tranquil centre in Syvota, you can be sure that you’ll return home relaxed, invigorated and with a restored sense of inner peace and balance.
If you’d like to know more or have a question, we’d be happy to have a chat with you. Just leave us your number and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.
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
Choose Syvota if you’re looking for the ultimate in relaxation in a beautiful setting. Just like in Vassiliki we offer a range of body-and-mind renewing activities, but Syvota has an old-world tranquillity and relaxed pace that can’t help but draw you in. You’ll stay in our lovely hotel Mega Ammos, perched on a hillside, outside of the village, overlooking the islands of Paxos and Corfu. Stroll down the garden pathway to a sheltered beach, where you’ll find sunbeds, parasols and three delightful tavernas. The nearest shops & supermarkets are 1.5kms away on the outskirts of the village, while you’ll find ample other restaurants and shops by the picturesque harbour a further 500m away. To learn more about all the irresistible activities like Yoga, Pilates and white water rafting we offer in Syvota, you can check out the Syvota sample schedule here.
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 £725, almost everything is included. Here are some of the things which you can expect to be part of your holiday:
A choice of hotels
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.
There’s so much to do!
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 walks and bike rides, 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.
Bars and restaurants
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.
Our flight-inclusive holidays are fully protected under ATOL 10042, which means your money is never at risk. After your booking, you’ll receive an ATOL certificate along with your invoice. See our booking conditions and www.atol.org.uk for more information.
