In the south of the island protected by a natural golf Vasiliki village stretches on the coastline and the valley. The main (pebble) beach of Vassiliki (200 m from George studios) is well-organized with sunbeds, umbrellas and water sports centers (windsurfing and scuba diving). At the west end of the golf, the beach is sandy and shallow while at each side, on the way to Agiofili beach there are a couple of smaller beaches.
The area is home to many nice accommodations, camping site, several shops, cafes and restaurants. There are supermarkets and bakeries (the nearests are 100 m from George studios) butchers and groceries, car/scooter and ATV rentals (200 m away), pharmacy and medical center.
Vasiliki is the perfect spot to explore the island, the mountain villages, and the wild beaches on the west of Lefkada while in the evening you can enjoy your dinner or drink in one of the local tavernas and bars by the harbour.
Apart from the beaches some of the places you can visit are:
