Odeon Hotel
Ranked #6 of 12 Hotels in Vasiliki
Reviewed July 10, 2007

Lefkas is one of the lesser known Ionian islands and the village of Vassiliki on its southern coast one of the nicest in the entire Ionian Sea area. Not quite discovered, (except by windsurfers), it still has many of the charms that one hopes to see when visiting the Greek islands - a small harbour surrounded by affordable and friendly tavernas and bars with good food, a decent beach, but close to some truly awesome beaches and a great base to explore the island without worrying about getting run off the road by tour buses and trucks.

The Hotel Odeon is on the beach about 800 metres from the centre of town, although there are stores, tavernas and other amenities much closer. It has only 17 rooms, which are new, extremely clean with nice beds and bathrooms. All have balconies or patios, but you must ask for a room on the 2nd or 3rd floor facing the sea. There are only 6 or 7 of these, but they are worth waiting for.

This a family run operation and they can't do enough for you. The breakfasts are amazing - no standard Greek cold buffet. The food is prepared just for you and never seems to stop coming.

The price was 60 Euros a night w/ breakfast and was the best deal we had on our recent trip to Greece.

Sadly, the popularity of Vassiliki with windsurfers (claimed to be the best site in Europe and it did look great) means the town is starting to develop quickly, so get there while you can. On the positive side, the windsurfers are a very laid back crowd and make for relaxing companions.

We found Hotel Odeon via their website and what a gem it turned out to be. The only thing I feel bad about is that it's taken me almost 2 years to write this review! When we arrived at the hotel the owners, were so welcoming. We thought we had booked just a triple room with a small area for cooking. The room was so spacious! The kitchenette, which we did use, was equipped with pots, pans, dishes, liquid detergent, enough to get a small dinner done. We were travelling with paper towels, so we just went out to the car to get those but otherwise it was all there. The bathrom was small, but very nice. We even had a balcony with a view towards the mountain, pool and main street. Our room rate included a continental breakfast. The first morning after arriving we got up late so we just left quickly because we wanted to get a good spot on the beach on the other side of the mountain (south west part). We did get the good spot, but found out that we had missed a wonderful breakfast! Their breakfast includes eggs, yoghurt, fresh sliced fruit, rolls, cheese...it was just so good, our only comfort was that at least we would get this one more morning. In the evening after a full day out you are offered a pastry or sweet, all three evenings it was something different and something so yummy. The Hotel is located about 50 meters back from the beach and a good 15 minute walk to the center of town, but it's all along the beach and so nice. We would recommend bringing a flashlight if you are returning late because there are no lights out on the beach, so the romantics will enjoy this! This is a great location especially for windsurfers (we understand that this beach stays busy with windsurfers all summer). The water here, just like the other islands we visited, is also beautiful. This was one of our favorite vacations and we would love to return here again someday.
