If a mix of beautiful scenery, meals at family-run restaurants, swimming and simply relaxing on the beach sounds idyllic, with gloriously sunny weather thrown in, then why not enjoy a sailing holiday in Greece this year? With cheap flights and great deals on yacht packages, including discounts for longer stays and repeat bookings, you can return whenever you choose. You don’t need to be a seasoned sailor to have a yacht based adventure, so long as you’re keen to experience a slower pace of life with great food, fantastic weather and as much or as little to do as you choose.
Head for the beautiful Ionian Islands for the best yacht based holidays. The surrounding waters are a sailor’s paradise, with no tides, a weak current and little commercial traffic. It’s peaceful, safe and beautiful – a place where you will learn the true meaning of relaxation. There are three types of sailing holiday available in Greece, each type of holiday is designed to meet the needs of holidaymakers. There are holidays for people with zero sailing experience or for those that are seasoned sailors with plenty of experience, and of course, the relevant qualifications. Whether you choose to travel as a family, as a couple, or with friends, there is a yacht and a program to suit your plans.
Confident and qualified sailors can simply pick up their comfortable, spacious and well maintained yacht and take off for the week. See where the wind blows and make plans as you choose, with the full backup of expert staff just a phone call away, if you need anything. Drop anchor as the mood takes you, or head into harbour to eat in a traditional tavern.
If you cannot sail, you want to learn or you’d just like to relax and leave the work to others, this is your ideal option. An experienced skipper will take care of everything for you. You can even book a hostess to look after your every need.
If you can sail but are a little worried about being in charge of the whole holiday, then this is the holiday for you. After taking control of your own Yacht you join up with around 7 other yachts and sail in unison around the beautiful islands. A great choice for qualified skippers who still need some guidance.
