A sailing centre on the beach with small, family run hotels
Our comfortable bed-to-beach set up
The Wildwind sailing centre is right in the middle of Vassiliki beach - the boat park and sailing centre is a few yards from our comfortable accommodations which are set in beautiful landscaped gardens.
Between the accommodation and sea there are large shaded lawn areas - perfect spots to relax and watch the action on the water.
From your first drink and welcome meal in Vassiliki you will find that this is an easy place to meet people and make new friends. Our beach and pool bars have a very relaxed feel, and you are welcome to join in any of our casual social events. These include the famous (notorious?) Wildwind beach BBQ, with its eclectic mix of live music at the beach bar and our cocktail nights at the pool bar with long drinks and tall stories.
Wildwind is well suited for families, couples and solo travellers. Our various types of accommodation offer you a range of options, so please do ask us for advice on which particular accommodation best suits your needs. We are here to help!
A choice of hotels
Choose from friendly accommodation in two small family-run hotels and a selection of studios, apartments and villas. All of our accommodations are set in beautiful landscaped gardens located just a few metres from the beach. Our simple and comfortable rooms are en-suite and most have either sea views or views of the surrounding countryside and mountains.
Our bars and restaurants
The beach and pool bar restaurants in Vassiliki provide relaxing retreats and offer a range of appetising, homemade fare. This includes delicious fresh salads, Mediterranean snacks and meals from breakfast through to early evening. Because we do not price our holidays to include meals, you are free to enjoy the flavour and variety of the local tavernas, bars and cafes in the harbour, which is just a ten-minute stroll away.
Our entertaining evenings and social vibe
The beach and pool bars are the focal points for our casual social evenings, which include chilled out cocktail nights by the pool and a weekly barbeque with an eclectic mix of live music for your entertainment. We share these areas with Healthy Options Yoga holidays, whose relaxed approach fits well with our own. It is very easy to make new friends on your holidays in Vassiliki.
Sneaking out for a bit
Getting away from it all is easy too, with the nearby orange and olive groves providing tranquil and ideal surroundings for cycle rides or walks off the beaten track.The Greek people are warm and welcoming and positively delight in showing off the beauty and culture of their country. You couldn't find a better place to switch off and explore your senses than in these gorgeous surroundings.

We are working with Gerard and Ella Beentjes, Dutch ex-pats who have built three spectacular 2 bedroom Tower villas. As you’d expect, all of these villas have their own private pool, and have simply outstanding views of Vassiliki bay and across to Ithaca and Cephalonia. Please contact us for further details.
