Spend days sailing the coast, dropping anchor for lunch after a spot of swimming. Enjoy a lunch prepared in the galley using fresh local ingredients, and whatever you have managed to catch that day! Look forward to a sun-downer on the teak deck before stepping ashore for supper.

We’ve a wonderful selection of sailing boats, in both the Ionian and the Dalmatian, offering limitless opportunities for escape. Whether it’s a week aboard between villas, or a holiday in itself, there’s nothing quite like spending time on the open waters.

In the Ionian, a day’s cruise takes you around the islands of Paxos and Anti-Paxos, with its dramatic West coast and crystal-clear turquoise waters. A few days more would allow a journey to the entrance of the River Styx, which Greek mythology states was once the boundary between Earth and Hades, the Underworld. A week’s cruise would see you around the northern Ionian waters, over to Corfu, and further still towards the mainland. If time is no issue, stay longer still and visit Lefkada, Ithaca and Kefalonia too.

One of the best ways to see Croatia is from the water, with breath-taking views and a spectacular coastline, there’s so much to explore as you island-hop to your heart’s content. Strike the perfect balance, as no two island are the same – witness the life and liveliness of Hvar, compared to the forests, glorious National Parks and undiscovered charm of others. With miles of unspoilt coastline, and waters clear enough to rival those of Greece, Croatia has got to be top of the list of must-see destinations.
