Vasilikades (Greek: Βασιλικάδες, also Βασιλικιάδες - Vasilikiades) is a village in the Erisos region in north Kefalonia, a western Greek island.[1] The village of Fiscardo is to the north 8 km away and to the south Assos is 10 km with Myrtos Beach a few more km south. Vasilikades is sometimes called Enosi locally which means 'union' in Greek and refers to the union of villages when one new village was built after the destruction of some smaller ones in the earthquake of 1953. Views from certain vantage points in this area are across the island's forested west coast and across the sea to the island of Lefkas. It is a well known vantage point for stunning sunsets. Vasilikades is a pretty traditional village with strict preservation orders so that new building follows the traditional style.
