Have never visited beautiful Ellada? What a pity! Well, you should correct that terrible mistake on the first occasion. Think about early check-in for summer 2018. I will tell you WHY.
Greece – the place where all your dreams will come true
Visiting Greece for the first time is always an exciting experience. As a first step, forget everything you have ever read or heard about that exciting country. Believe me that nothing can prepare you for Greece, the most amazing country in Europe.
Fortunately, when I decided to visit Greece for the first time, I went by car. That allowed me to drive around on my own will and without a strict schedule. But, even if I had ten lives, I wouldn’t be able to visit everything that mysterious country offers. In the other hand, if you plan a family holiday, maybe the airplane is the better choice for you.
When you decide to get to know Greece, starting with Lefkada is a really good choice. Imagine the picturesque fishing village on an exotic island of paradise on the west coast of Greece and white sand between the rocky wall and sand shade of blue sea. Include water sports and cocktails in that picture and all your dreams will come true. You can believe me because I did it.
Choosing the right accommodation is essential
Regardless of whether you travel alone, with your soul mate and especially if you do that with your family, the beach hotel accommodation is always the best choice. Dragging beach equipment for half an hour can never be relaxing and tempting. And, (should I add it at all?) you simply deserve THE VIEW!
Imagine waking up with the sea in front of your eyes or drinking the first-morning coffee in combination with the smell of salt water and sun cream. Not to mention that falling into sleep with gentle sounds of waves in the background is absolutely irreplaceable!
Plus, you should consider that being in one small room with a lot of equipment is not the best situation when you stay there as a family. You have to think about a comfortable apartment. It is very important having a room for children, especially if they are very young. There are a lot of interesting things you can do while they are sleeping.
Know what to pack
The perfect thing related to summer holidays is that you really don't need a lot of clothes at all. But if you are bringing the children you have to know what to bring for them too. First of all, you should check what is possible to hire in a resort and what you must bring along yourself. And, of course, you should pack all the things into the
Apart from the clothes, you will need a first aid kit and a sun cream with a high protection factor. I highly recommend hats and sunglasses for all of you, because Greek sun can be very strong especially if you go to your vacation in July or August. If you are from the North, you need to protect your light skin, a particularly gentle skin of your children.
Learn something new during the summer
Once when you unpack your luggage, you need to look for some nice places for relaxing. The only problem you will have there is what to pick out first. For example, I adore water sports, island excursions, and biking. And, of course, don’t forget to take advantage of the special beach club offers you can find around.
Kids clubs equally for kid’s and your pleasure
Going on holiday with kids do not need to be a nightmare for parents, full of shouts, complaints or screams. Make your children happy plus be relaxed and calm with plenty of kids clubs you can discover on this amazing place. The really good thing is that those clubs are free to join and run five days a week so parents can get some precious me-time!
Just imagine that your children can try new things and meet lots of new friends under watchful attention of experienced childcare staff while you enjoy lying on the beach completely careless with a favorite book in your hands.
I know that you love your children the most in the whole world and like spending time with them. But sometimes is important to let them play with their peers. Plus you deserve to have a rest of everyday routine. Just believe me, regardless of the age of children, my experience says - give them a reason to enjoy and you will enjoy more.
But keep in mind that you need to pre-book your places which are free and inclusive. Make sure your children don't miss out anything. They can enjoy as Sea Urchins if they are very young or, as members of older group Sea Tigers, they can go at sailing and windsurfing.
If they are teenagers, they can join the Youth Squad as well and spend time in a fun water sports programs for the week with up to three hours a day coaching. And don’t worry. There is one instructor looking after maximum six pupils on the water.
Think for yourself for the change
So, you are super organized and have everything covered when it comes to the children. They will have plenty to do and the daily routine is completely planned. But have you thought about adult time?
It's time for beach club just for you! You can find out why paddle boarding is the fastest growing water sport in the world right now. Or you maybe just want to spend your day in style? In that case, cruising around the bay with an instructor as your guide is win combination. Also, paddle cruises are extremely popular and great fun for everyone.
The best for complete family is to enjoy together
But, of course, you want to spend some days with your beloved children too. Let me recommend you yacht sailing holidays from Lefkas through the gateway to the idyllic Southern Ionian Sea. If you, in the depths of your soul, feel that sea is your life, as I feel, try an exclusive flotilla for one or two-week cruises. It is something really special for all your family.
For more experienced there is a possibility of bareboat sailing too. If you prefer to decide on own pace and itinerary, pick out one of a range of yachts from 35 to 52 feet, based at Lefkas marina. Just get onboard and enjoy your special moments together.
Vassiliki Stay & Sail
I believe that you already feel that there are no many choices for you for the next summer. You missed to leave your heart on Lefkada this year and you just mustn't miss all that beauty during summer 2018.
Recommend you to give yourself the possibility to discover the best of both worlds there. Try a Beach club holiday in your first week and then go to the sea on an Ocean Elements yacht to cruise the beautiful Ionian Islands for your second week for example.
Make the unique decision for your family because you deserve it.
Keep in mind that it’s never too early to make a reservation for such a place. Plus early booking can save a lot of money for you and your family. Think on time, dream smart and go for it!
