Corfu and the Ionian Islands

are distinctively green sporting a great variety of beaches and bays leading up to often mountainous hinterland.

Sailing in the Ionian waters is relaxed and rarely demanding. Wild coastline, small villages and harbours vary with more mundane and cosmopolitan harbour towns, where you will see superyachts and the occasional celebrity. Spring starts as early as March and in April the island vegetation is in full bloom, flowers everywhere. Rain showers take turn with warm and sunny days announcing the summer ahead. In summer, life is sweet, with endless sunshine and warm crystal-clear waters, inviting to let your hair down and relax. Autumn comes late and with the waters still pleasant and many warm sunny days, you can enjoy the off-season until mid-November. There is a multitude of things to do and explore in Corfu and the Ionian, be it sportive activities of all kinds in and on the water, nature walks and hikes or cultural highlights, historical sites, museums and beautiful architecture.  

Let’s not forget how welcoming and relaxed the locals are, “xenofilos” (strangerfriendly), warm and often very educated, they are open to different cultures, having seen Venetian, French, English, German and Austrian influences over the centuries.  

This also reflects in a delicious and varied cuisine, some typical Greek and some surprising local dishes, strong Italian influences and the modern and highly commendable Greek “fusion” cuisine. 

Whether you are keen on skippering our yachts yourself or you prefer to have our experienced local skipper or even a crew on board, we will always make sure that you get the best out of the coastal paradise of Corfu itself, the mainland and the numerous islands to the North and South of Corfu. 

On the islands surrounding Corfu as well as on the mainland there are several known attractions and a few less known as well. The trick is timing. We recommend to start a week long cruise on a day other than Saturday, be creative to get the best out of your experience! If you go against the rhythm of Saturday to Saturday cruises, you will be at peace, drumming your own rhythm and sailing outside the box! 

Aa few impressions of what awaits you!
