There’s nothing more rewarding and grounding than a massage to soothe tired muscles and so we’ve included a half hour massage in your holiday. If you want to pamper your muscles some more, it is perfectly possible to extend your massage or book additional sessions during the week, though extra local charges would apply. We have a range of massage styles on offer.
Massages are available in both Vassiliki and Syvota.
Stand-up paddle-boarding is best enjoyed early in the morning, when the water is as flat as a mill pond and the sun soaks your skin with just the right amount of warmth. Paddle-boarding is great fun and an exhilarating way to keep fit while you enjoy an entirely different perspective of the world from the water. Accompanied by expert instructors, you’ll have a great time while you are perfectly safe in our warm, tranquil waters. You are also free to take the boards out on the water whenever you like.
Our unique Herbal Walk is perfect for foodies and many of our guests have found this an unforgettable experience. The fascinating excursion into the valley is a great way to discover Lefkas’ impressive landscape and abundant flora. The gentle walk of approximately 3km is accompanied by an informative talk by our friend Aris Kokotsis, who has over 20 years phytotherapy experience. He’ll show you a variety of herbs and plants and how you can use them for cooking and healing. Aris laces his talk with a healthy dose of fascinating anecdotes from Greek mythology. Botany and culture in one trip!
