Rise, shine and enjoy breakfast before we transfer to the port to hop aboard our private sail boat. Our skipper will be waiting to release the mooring lines and off we go towards the Saronic Gulf. The bluest waters of the Aegean Sea are waiting for you and once we arrive in the quaint and authentic fishing village of Perdika your authentic Greek experience truly begins! Have your first true Greek "Meze" meal in a local taverna and perhaps taste some of the traditional dishes, amazing fresh salads with the famous feta cheese, grilled octopus with a tad of vinegar and oregano washed down with a glass of Ouzo. Welcome to island life ladies!
After breakfast, leave Perdika in our wake and set sail for one of the most iconic islands in Greece, the island of Hydra. Hydra stands alone historically as the island that the steadfast and amazing female Naval Officer Bouboulina, who was crucial to the fight for independence in 1821 set sail with her ships from. This island gem is known as the most beloved and quaint destinations for artists and those seeking serenity and is a small haven in its own rights; No cars. No scooters. Just art, taverns, boutique shops scattered around the tiny winding marble-cobbled lanes. All of which you can explore with us by foot, water taxi or donkey. An air of exclusivity combined with the natural rugged landscape makes for an amazing setting and another fabulous day in the Aegean.
Enjoy some fresh Greek pastries from our local bakery this morning as we set sail for Leonidio, located on the east coast of the Peloponnesian peninsula. Enjoy time to soak up the sea air and sun and perhaps take a turn at the wheel before docking at the port of Plaka. Situated under huge red cliffs, the scenery is serenely stunning, as if time has stopped in this amazing location. Leonidio village, is at the end of the Badron gorge this small village is one of the most scenic of the Peloponnese. Get ready for some delicious Greek "meze" for dinner straight from the sea.
Say "kalimera" and sail to the Neoclassical town of Nafplion the 1st capital of Greece and the final home of the first ever female Lieutenant General of Greece, Manto Mavrogenous. As you enter the port you will be pass one of the three impressive fortresses of the city; the island fortress of Bourtzi built by the Venetians in the early 1700s. Imposing its might above the city is the massive fortress of Palamidi, which affords a spectacular view of the bay and gulf. This is where the ships that set sail for Troy, in hope of rescuing Helen, began their epic journey, and the citadel of Mycenae where the campaign began is only 30minutes away. Don’t miss the opportunity to walk through this beautiful town rich in history and impressive architecture or join us on a bicycle ride before our dinner at the carefully selected and popular taverna! There is absolutely something for everyone in this highlighted town!
Sail from Nafplio to the small island of Spetses, another favorite of the “jetset” crowd. The bustling town and the stunning architecture of the old manor houses gives the island an air of the traditional and the exclusive. Walk through the narrow streets and enjoy a coffee on the waterfront and feel that this is a place where you can be you. Good night life scene which we can explore tonight for a little revelry!
Fresh Greek yoghurt and honey for breakfast? Yes please! We set sail from Spetses to Poros today through the narrow straights that seperates the Peloponnesian peninsula from the island. Green and lush countryside to be seen, and of course a swim in the sparkling sea makes for a totally relaxed day and one that will sooth your soul. Climb up to the famous bell tower and indulge in some fantastic fresh orange juice before exploring the streets. Have a sidestreet secret on us in the form of a delicious Greek Frappe before sitting down for a dinner at your leisure!
This morning after breakfast you will set sail towards the island of Aegina on your return journey back to Athens. Today we visit the neo-classical port and town of Aegina. If you are feeling energetic you may visit the impressive temple of Athina Aphaia dedicated to the Goddess of Light, which is 25minute drive through the countryside. The views from the top of the island where the temple is located is magical! Take a stroll along the narrow streets and see the covered local fish market, take a horse & buggy ride, indulge in our favourite sidestreet secret with some dreamy pistachio ice cream and take in the local vibes. Later that evening, enjoy our farewell dinner in true Greek "meze" style and savour the moments.
After an early start today and breakfast, prepare for the last “leg” of your sailing trip from Aegina back to the marina on the Athenian coast. Return at about 10:00 to the marina in time to say goodbye to your crew. Your Destination Manager will escort your to the airport!
