Lend a hand in sailing the yacht, navigation, sail trimming, negotiating harbour arrivals and departures or assisting with anchoring procedures. Your skipper is your guide, at sea and on land, and will take you to beautiful anchorages, on interesting walks or more energetic hikes. As a French, Greek and English speaker, he’s able to share the knowledge he’s acquired during the course of his numerous voyages.

In the mornings, take part in your favourite pursuit... be it a hike, a shorter walk, swimming or visiting a remarkable site. Around midday, we set off for your new destination. Depending on where that is, we may be able to drop anchor in a sheltered cove to do some snorkelling, swimming or a take a trip to the shore. When we reach our evening’s destination near the end of the afternoon, there’ll be time to take a look around before dinner in a good Greek taverna.

With its beautiful, secluded beaches and lovely walks through valleys amid cypress, walnut and almond trees, Tilos has retained the casual appeal of an island that is still barely touched by tourism. Arriving by boat into Symi’s harbour town, Yialos (Gialos), has to be the best way to admire its dignified neoclassical buildings, built on the slopes surrounding the harbour. The charms of Nisyros are grouped around its houses built several storeys high in Mandraki harbour, in its maze of tiny streets and its lovely main square. Connoisseurs will appreciate Halki (Khalki), a small, unassuming and rocky island where restored homes alternate with houses in ruins. Kos, the birthplace of Hippocrates (the father of modern medicine), is of considerable archaeological interest and also boasts its famous castle of the Knights, overlooking the harbour. Kalymnos was formerly a sponge-fishing centre and now offers a good choice for visitors in search of tasty cooking. Far-removed from mass tourism but popular with Greeks in search of “la dolce vita”, Leros offers the full range of holiday attractions including some very good restaurants. With its glorious beaches, delightful Lipsi is one of the secret jewels of the Dodecanese islands. In Rhodes , dive into an at once medieval and oriental atmosphere with the tremendous fortress of the knights of Saint Jean, or take advantage of the hammam in the Turkish district.

Your sailing yacht is of recent construction and very well-equipped yacht to provide the assurance of maximum safety. Beacons, plotter, GPS, automatic pilot, lifejackets with harness... a 43-foot (13-metre) cruising yacht comprising four cabins, each designed to accommodate two people.
