We are back on the sunny island of Kefalonia for the start of our 11th season at Vassaliki. Samantha and I drove down once again and arrived on 3rd of April to a heavy rain storm!?!
The sun soon found us again and work has started with lawn cutting, pool cleaning, fixing the driveway, new fences, setting up the rooms and pool bar. The resort took a bashing this winter with huge amounts of rain, so much so that a large 10ft high wall collapsed into the car park taking with it some of the lawn surrounding the pool,r plant pots and the lamps. Don’t worry though, we have already had this fixed and the resort will be ready in time.
We are really lucky this year to have some volunteers joining the team to help with this massive task of set up. Six guests are joining us over the next four weeks to help out. I wish them the best of luck!!

New Team Members
We are really pleased to introduce you to our new team for summer 2017. Colin and Alex will be joining us to replace Simon and Sheryle to assist us in all aspects of running the resort. Colin has been working in the Far East and the UK in construction management and Alex is a fitness instructor, so no more laying around the pool all day!!! Both of them are really excited about their new lifestyle change and I am sure they will bring an exciting energy and some new ideas to the resort.
Of course all the old favourites will be back, Nick the Chef will be arriving in a few days ready to cook up a storm and has loads of new dishes for the coming summer, Samantha and I will of course be back keeping an eye on everything!
Unfortunately Nicky our amazing housekeeper and team member has decided not to return to Vassaliki this summer. After working with us for 9 years we wish her all the best with her new role.
We are currently interviewing new staff to replace her.
Well it’s back again… even bigger and better than before!
Our reunion weekend is 19th to 21st of January 2018.
