Come and experience the wonderful Ionian and find out why customers return time and time again. With plentiful islands all with easy reach of each other, a sailing holiday aboard a fully crewed 52' yacht really is the ultimate way to see all the Ionian has to offer. You can relax knowing that your skipper and hostess have planned all the details for you - they take care of the sailing, plan the route to ensure you visit the 'must sees' of the Ionian and provide you with a delicious breakfast and light lunch onboard so that you are free to swim, sunbathe, explore, snorkel, make new friends or relax with a good book. A maximum of 8 guests are onboard the Sun Odyssey 52.2 which has 4 double guest bedrooms, all with en-suite bathrooms. If you are looking for a memorable Greek sailing holiday then jump onboard, meet other like-minded sailing enthusiasts and enjoy a week of sun, sea and scenery.

Booking by the cabin on our share a sail program means you enjoy the sailing experience at a fraction of the cost of a crewed yacht. With two routes to choose from you can decide to explore the southern Ionian including Kefalonia and Meganisi or to head north to Corfu and the outlying islands of the northern Ionian. Each day you will be exploring a new area, enjoying plenty of swimming, snorkeling and sunbathing along the way. Each day a new island awaits for you to explore. After a day on the water, take a walk and capture some incredible views, relax with a drink in a local bar or sample some of the traditional Greek dishes in a local taverna.

Breakfast and light lunch are included, as well as water, coffee and tea. Meals onboard are usually enjoyed in the spacious cockpit whilst anchored in an idyllic bay. Evening meals will be taken ashore at a local restaurant - there are plenty to choose from!

    A relaxed day of sailing and plenty of opportunities to swim and snorkel. Lakka is a beautiful horse shoe shaped bay surrounded by hills covered in olive and cypress trees.

Enjoy a sundowner with new friends under the stars and nod off to the gentle rocking of the boat.

    DAY 6 : Paxos to Parga

    Time for a stop on the mainland. Parga is a beautiful, historic town which is popular with tourists - and for good reason! Idyllic beaches and coves surround the town, whilst it also boasts a castle and labyrinth style narrow streets that you just need to get lost in!
