ONE WEEK SOUTH IONIAN CABIN CHARTER
The great thing about sailing in Greece is that every island is different. Each has its individuality and makes it fascinating. The differences are both cultural and scenic. Many of our past clients who have sailed in the Caribbean or the Pacific say they find Greece more varied. The Ionian Sea is covered in evergreen pine forests. Trees overhang the quiet coves we sail into, providing perfect shade for midday picnics and siestas.
We will visit most of the following islands and ports Lefkas town, Scorpion (Onasis island), Nidri, Meganisi, Syvota, Vasiliki, Frikies (Ithaka), Kioni (Ithaka), Vathy (Ithaka), Fiscardo (Kefalonia), Agia Efimia (Kefalonia).
Our main base in the IONIAN SEA is located at Preveza, which is a coastal town with an island flair, built at the entrance of Amvrakikos Gulf located at the double delta of the rivers Louros and Arachthos along with the lagoon complex that has a rare ecosystem protected by the RAMSAR international treaty. Day trips could be organised by us on request, prior to embarkation or your disembarkation (fees apply). On these day trips you can have a very enjoyable time watching dolphins feeding and the glorious marine life of Amvrakikos and having a relaxing day on peaceful waters.
Also Preveza is a modern town, administrative, commercial, intellectual and tourist center of the prefecture. Beautiful, traditional buildings adorn the port and the historical center while the pedestrian walkways and cobblestone streets lined with popular taverns, cafès and bars creating a Greek island effect.
The island of Meganisi is located just between Lefkada and the western mainland coasts of Greece. This is an island with few population and limited tourist development. Vathi, a fishing village, now one of the most famous touristic resorts in the Ionian Sea. The harbor keeps its traditional character even if it has become a favorite mooring of yachts and sailing vessels due to the organized marina operates there.
Spartochori, a traditional village with stone houses, small courtyards and narrow cobbled streets, is built on a hill and beyond the main road, a path full of green, hiding in its path the Cave of the Cyclops, that joins its seaport, Spilia. Katomeri, built east, also a traditional village overlooking the bay of Atherinos, waiting for you to walk through the narrow alleys and chat with the hospitable inhabitants. The island retains its traditional character with its picturesque villages, its harbors, the old windmills linked with myths and local legends and the scattered chapels.
This green island with breathtaking beaches and crystal clear waters of greenish-blue colours will leave you speechless. Kefalonia glows in the Ionian Sea and carries a rich history in cultural tradition. It’s the biggest Ionian Island and the green of its mountains blend with the blue of the water making it truly unique and a beloved destination. You might even get the chance to encounter the rare, caretta caretta, sea turtles that take refuge here, as well as the monk seals monachus monachus.
Famous all over the world as the mythical island of Odysseus, Ithaca charms visitors with the laid- back island, the blue green water and the lush greenery. Swim in the crystal water, have your meal in fish taverns and chat with the welcoming locals. The picturesque Kioni rightfully deserves its a place among the most famous and popular destinations in the Ionian Sea as on the seafront, visitors can enjoy their coffee in the cafes of the village and taste the delicious food of the restaurants.
