Brief description of the holiday
In summer we sail our yacht in Greece between the islands of the
Cyclades. We will be delighted to welcome you on board.
Our cruises are customised and suitable for couples, singles, families with children, groups and people of all ages.
You do not need any sailing experience.
During the holiday we can assure you of the ultimate enjoyment with relaxation, good local food and a willingness to share our way to sail and enjoy the sea. We do not offer a charter in the traditional sense.
We offer a fun holiday for everyone. A typical day on holiday with us allows for the greatest pleasure in the smallest of things.
We offer relaxation, sun, sea, ancient ruins, beautiful villages, towns, bays and beaches galore to explore. Alternatively just sit back and relax. Our beautiful boat will carry us across the beautiful sea and guests are welcome to join in the sailing activities or just enjoy the ride.
To join us for longer than one week please book the adjacent trips by clicking on the red link at the bottom of this Description, or contact us for more info.
MONDAY – MILOS We will spend the day in Milos. Known as the “Island of Colours” thanks to its jewel-coloured waters and building painted in vivid primary tones, the horseshoe-shaped island of Milos floats serenely in the Aegean Sea. It was here that the world-famous Venus de Milo statue was discovered. Though she now holds court at the Louvre, Milos has other beauties to admire. There are dozens of beaches, all different colours and all different combinations of sand, stone and shell. Explore the ancient theatre, catacombs and windmills in Tripiti village, then cap off your day with a cinematic sunset.
TUESDAY – Milos to Folegrandos Folegandros is a small island that has become very fashionable in the last years, particularly to Greek tourists in the know. We will find lovely beaches without the crush at all times of the year as most of the beaches are inaccessible unless you are on a boat.
WEDNESDAY – Folegrandos to Santorini Glamourous Santorini is deliciously different. Geographical newness is in part to thank. The island’s popular black volcanic Perissa and Kamari beaches are big draws, as is its arguably most famous Red Beach near Akrotiri (which is the place to go for archaeology buffs). Santorini curves round a giant lagoon in the Cyclades islands, offering stunning views from sky-high towns, eclectic cuisine, lovely galleries, thriving nightlife and excellent wines. A must stop for us as we travel around the islands, and our most requested destination.
THURSDAY – Santorini to Ios Along with Mykonos, Ios is well known for its lively nightlife, but there is a lot more to Ios than just bars and nightclubs which in the main part are restricted to the main towns. We can visit the big beaches on the east coast for a very different view of Ios!
FRIDAY – Ios to Paros Unrivalled natural beauty, beaches with crystal clear waters, unrivalled Byzantine footpaths connecting traditional villages and breathtaking landscapes make Páros, located at the heart of the Cyclades, one of the best loved holiday destinations in Greece. Wander through beautiful traditional villages like Náoussa, a colourful village, where the ruins of a Venetian fortress stand at the entrance to its small harbour. Léfkes is located at the highest point of Páros and enjoys stunning views of the island. The village is set up in the mountains and is surrounded by a rich green landscape. It has very well preserved Cycladic and neoclassical buildings, beautiful squares and narrow marble alleys. The Museum of Aegean Folk Culture at Léfkes offers a tour of the culture of the Archipelago; discover the Aegean world through its exhibits, which include pieces related to the architecture, traditional trades and geology of the islands.
SATURDAY – Paros to Naxos Naxos is the largest of the Cycladic islands and has a great variety of landscapes and things to do. Highlights for sightseeing include the gate or ‘Portara’ to the ancient Temple of Apollo, the Temple of the Goddess Dimitra in Saggri, the Venetian Castle in Naxos Town and the archeological museum also in Naxos town.
SUNDAY – Naxos to Mykinos Sunday is the end of the trip. We will sail home to Mykinos for a final day of sea and sunshine before our guests disembark for the fast ferry back to Athens, or perhaps another adventure in the Islands.

We sail our beautiful Beneteau 473 yacht around the Greek Islands every summer. We are always happy to welcome guests who want to share the brilliant sailing around the islands and enjoy a relaxing holiday.
We have three double cabins so we can accomodate six people in comfort (eight at a squeeze and ten if everyone is really friendly.) Each cabin has its own private shower/ toilet.
Whilst we always want our guests to have a great holiday safety is also important. We carry all the usual safety equipment just in case of unexpected issues.
Our holiday days are a mixture of gentle sailing to a new destination, followed time for swimming, relaxing or sight seeing before dinner in a local taverna.
Our trip starts here
Monday 3 June from 16:00 until Monday 3 June at 22:00
Our trip ends here
Sunday 9 June from 12:00 until Sunday 9 June at 18:00
