While our two family run hotels offer comfort just yards from the beach and yoga tent, some of our clients asked us if we could arrange some alternative accommodations for those who’d like to cook for themselves, or indeed, really want an absolutely luxury villa to share with friends or family.
So, what can you expect from a stay with us?
Our ‘Melas’ family hotel. Here you will find a tranquil oasis of peace. The quiet courtyard encloses a beautifully blue pool, and is great for hiding away, catching some sun and relaxing. On Sunday nights we gather here for our Welcome Meetings, and come Thursday it’s home to our weekly cocktail night with live acoustic music. Ilias and his friendly team also have the most fantastic menu on offer. Top tip: order an Energy salad – avocado and pine-nut glory, and a freshly squeezed juice for a quick energy boost.
The ‘Kavadias’ hotel is run by the wonderful Kavadias family, the beach bar patio is home to our Welcome Meal and the Tuesday night BBQ and live music evening, a great place to meet and make friends – and maybe take a turn on the dance floor. The patio is an ideal place to grab lunch overlooking the water and to watch sailors and windsurfers getting up to their tricks. Top tip: don’t miss the live Tuesday night music, and take time to chat to the lovely Kavadias family.
From this season we have also have some great self-catering apartments which are just a 2-minute walk from our centre. The ‘Akti’ apartments are located in beautiful gardens which are extremely peaceful. We’ve entered into a long term arrangement with the family who own ‘Akti’, and have taken it upon ourselves to completely refurbish the nine apartments over this winter.
If you are inclined to go for the most luxurious option, we have just acquired some beautiful new accommodation set high up on the hillside. All have their own private pools, outstanding views of Vassiliki bay, and a beautiful vista across to the islands of Ithaca and Cephalonia. We are working with two Dutch ex-pats who have built three spectacular two bedroom villas, and a quite exceptional four bedroom villa*, great if you are coming as a family or group.
*Now only available from August 6th to September 3rd
Of course, we are still working with the lovely family at the Mega Ammos Hotel in Syvota which provides beautiful and luxurious accommodation in a peaceful setting.
