There is no set itinerary for a week on board one of our private luxury yachts. Once you’ve settled into your cabin and perhaps had a glass of something restorative, your Captain will bring out a chart (map) of the area to work out the perfect route for you and the weather. If you’re after a week of hopping between secluded bays, or if you are more interested in the hustle and bustle of the Greek outdoors town lifestyle, your Captain will help prepare the ultimate route for you.
Although there is no routine, a typical day may involve a leisurely breakfast on one of the islands, a move to a different anchorage and some water-sports, followed by lunch and then have fun sailing in the afternoon when the wind picks up. In the late afternoon, you will move toward your evening’s destination to moor for dinner. Sailing is of course weather dependent. The Captain will carefully look at the forecast before and during the trip and plan the route accordingly. There may also be days where he considers it necessary to be port bound if the forecast is looking adverse. We will always err on the side of caution, however the chances of bad weather for more than a day a week in this area are very low.
Most trips start and finish in Corfu and will cruise the Northern Ionian Islands. For those wishing to cover more miles or explore a bit further, there is the option to head further south, and explore the Southern Ionian too on one of our one way trips. All prices assume a 7 night stay from Saturday to Saturday, starting and finishing in Corfu. It includes skipper, chef, fuel, marina fees, breakfast, lunch, soft drinks, water, tea/coffee/snacks and all watersports (water-skiing, wakeboarding, ringo, windsurfing, SUP, snorkelling). Extras are dinner if required on-board and alcoholic drinks. Other routes around are possible but delivery and one-way fees may apply.
Day 3 - Stunning Sailing
We hope by now you are completely settled into life on board. Sail to Paxos and Anti-Paxos, marvelling at how your beautiful yacht harnesses the wind to glide almost silently between the islands. Stop over in Lakka, for the bluest water – or perhaps Gaios for a cosmopolitan evening in town.
Day 4 - Paxos Playground
The Paxos islands are a truly phenomenal playground for yachts. With caves, coves and beaches galore – and all within a short hop of each other – you can spend all day gently meandering around the islands exploring. Maybe this evening you take dinner on board, prepared by our wonderful chefs.
Day 5 - Sleepy Town
After a couple of days exploring, this evening you could enjoy a quiet stop in Longos. This is our favourite sleepy town on the Paxos islands, often overlooked for being tiny – that’s precisely why we love it. With a few exceptional restaurants, a beach bar best accessed by paddleboard and some lovely boutique shops, we’re quite often here a couple of times in the week…
Day 6 - Heading North
Enjoy a brilliant sail back to Corfu, surfing waves and enjoying your powerful yacht. Perhaps this evening you’ll stop in Petriti, a working fishing village on the base of Corfu. With some of the freshest fish to be found in the islands, either step ashore to a renowned seafood taverna or hail the fisherman first thing in the morning for catch of the day.
A seven night/eight day trip starts from £1350 per person, for 8 people in the early and late season. Prices peak at just over £6000 per person for two people having a yacht to themselves.
