General Description

On the Ionian Islands off the west coast of Greece, Hellas shows her greenest side: Pure nature, the crystal clear blue shimmering Ionian Sea, and centuries of Venetian influences dominate the archipelago of the Ionian Islands.

Discover the famous island of Ithaca which is said to have been the home of Odysseus, the unforgettable green bird sanctuary island of Lefkas, the fantastic mountain world of Cephalonia, and the beautiful olive woods of the small island of Paxos. Enjoy the stay on board the wooden motor yacht and let yourself be pampered by the excellent Greek cuisine and the coziness of the ship!
