For the first time we’re offering the opportunity to sail out of beautiful Zante Island in Greece. We have moved our traditional wooden motor yachts, known as gulets, to this breathtaking island for a brand new ‘floating’ Greek houseparty.
In a week we explore this corner of the Ionian Islands, visiting four Greek islands, as well as Zante, with lots of opportunities to explore ashore, spending time in colourful harbour towns and relaxing in beautiful bays you would never discover from land.

The crew takes care of sailing, cooking and making sure you get the most out of the cruise (including reading the weather and flexing the itinerary accordingly). The cruise includes all meals on-board, which means a continental breakfast, a simple 2-course lunch, afternoon tea and 2-course dinner likely to feature fish or chicken with vegetables or a salad. Drinks are not included, but you can buy beer, wine and soft drinks from the bar, and there are plenty of opportunities ashore to buy a cold drink from a harbour-side taverna, or an ice-cream from a beach-side stall.

Twin-centre holiday
You can combine a week cruising the Ionian Islands with a week at either Apollon Hotel in Tsilivi or Ionian Hill Hotel in Argassi: ask us for prices.

Each boat is traditional in style, crafted in wood and powered by its reliable engine, though when the winds are right, the Captain may set the sails. Each has 8 cabins offered for sole occupancy, creating a small group which is well-looked after by the Turkish crew of three. Each boat (layouts may differ) has a sun-bed area, a shaded seating area and an ‘al fresco’ dining area. There’s an under-cover ‘saloon’ or living space, and a tiny bar. The Gulets sail under the Greek Flag and are registered boats in Greece. 

For these cruises a good level of mobility is required. You will need to climb up and down the ladder when swimming and walk the gang plank when getting on and off in the harbour. Please ask if you have any queries or concerns.

Day 2 - Depart Zante and cruise towards Kefalonia, dropping anchor for the night in Poros, on the south-east coast.

Day 3 - Set sail for the tiny island of Atokos, a privately owned paradise inhabited only by goats. Anchor in an idyllic bay for the night.

Day 4 - To the unspoiled island of Ithaca, visiting its tiny capital of Vathy before cruising north to Lefkada to overnight in Lygia harbour.

Day 5 - Cruise south to Kefalonia to discover pretty Sami, one of the island’s prettiest villages, then on to Porto Skala and its fabulous beach.

Day 6 - Discover Argostoli, the island’s elegant capital, then drop anchor for the night at Pessada on the south coast.

Day 7 - Sail back towards Zante, spending time at tranquil Psarou beach before heading for port in time to enjoy our farewell dinner.

Day 8 - Depart after breakfast, either to the airport for your flight, or to one of our hotels to extend your holiday to two weeks.


Our Gulets sail under the Greek flag and are registered in Greece. On the above itinerary when you stop in many of the ports their will be the chance to get off, walk around and explore the ports and areas. Generally you arrive into ports each day around 4pm and you can then go for a walk to explore a local small beach for a swim, visit the shops or relax in a cafe with a good book!

Cabins are compact but comfy, with limited storage space and a tiny en-suite wc/shower.
