"SAIL AWAY" SPORADES CRUISE/VILLA COMBO
7 NIGHTS SAILING CRUISE + 7 NIGHTS 3 BEDROOM VILLA WITH PRIVATE POOL
795 Euros per person!
‘The Cruise’ - The starting point of your 8 day cruise begins on the traditional and beautiful island of Skopelos. From here, you will set off on a journey of sun filled days, star filled nights and a week of adventure exploring some of the most striking islands in all of Greece. The Sporades, meaning ‘scattered’ islands are spread out like small green jewels dotted in a cobalt sea. These islands are well-known for their extreme beauty and the abundance of pine forests where Skopelos claims the unofficial title of ‘Greenest Island in the Mediterranean’.
This September and October the 41ft sailing boat ‘Thassos’ and its Captain Vassilis can offer a small group of only 6 persons a fabulous week of true sailing. Under full sail at every opportunity, guests will be able to take the helm and learn from a master sailor. Of course those who just want to enjoy the cooling winds and sunshine can relax on deck as the winds guide the itinerary of the week. This trip is perfect for those avid sailors who itch to holiday on their own boat but don’t have the luxury of time. It is also great for families who want to introduce their children to one of the most thrilling and pleasurable pastimes in the world of sport. The week includes plenty of chances for swimming, sunbathing and snorkeling as well as exploring nearby islands. There will be plenty of stops for meals at traditional seaside villages where you will have the choice of home-cooked Greek food or freshly caught seafood – or alternatively, have the fun of cooking some of your own meals in the galley kitchen onboard!
You will explore the routes of the pirates from centuries past, where sunken vessels can still be seen today. The islands themselves are rich in history and each has its own tale to tell of days bygone. Tradition abounds on all of the Sporades islands and although tourism has been a strong influence here in more recent years, there are few Greek islands that still hold their customs and folklore so firmly. So, prepare to step back in time and enjoy an intimate sailing cruise aboard our sailing yacht which has 3 cabins for up to 6 persons. Hear the call of the sirens song temping you to these unspoilt and idyllic islands of warm sea breezes, long sunny days and relaxation...
