Samantha and I want to thank all of you who have called, emailed or messaged us asking about our welfare. We feel very loved by our amazing guests and suppliers at Vassaliki.
We are both still in the UK. We decided we wanted to be close to our families during this difficult time for all.
We of course have no idea when or if we will be able to open Vassaliki this coming summer. We are waiting to see what happens and in the meantime are staying safe by isolating at home.
We are already packed with all the equipment we take with us each year for the resort and are ready to instantly leave for the long drive and ferry trip to Kefalonia, as soon as we are allowed to leave.
We will then need approximately two weeks to get the resort cleaned up and ready for whatever season remains (depending what surprises the winter may have left us.)
All our staff and suppliers in Kefalonia are safe, but at the time of writing this, they are on complete lockdown with very limited movement allowed. They must obtain permission from the authorities to leave their houses! We have been in contact with all our team and they report that they are well but struggling with the strict rules placed on them.
So what about your holiday? I am sure we will all need a bit of Kefalonian sun and Vassaliki magic after all this!
As soon as we are open we will let you know and will keep you updated on our progress. Anyone who cannot take their holiday with us this summer, either because we are still locked down or you feel uncomfortable to travel this year, we will move your booking and deposit to next year for you.
When you are notified by the airline that your flight has been cancelled, then please get in touch with us.
In the meantime, please stay safe and keep on dreaming. It won’t be long before we are back in the Greek sun with a cold glass of Mythos Beer!
