exploring greece under sail

Come along for a unique sailing experience - an Odyssey of the modern times. This is a voyage you can do at your own pace as well as in tune with local life. Explore the Greek isles as you drift along with the wind, stopping over in deserted coves to have a swim in the emerald-green sea, visit small fishing ports, eat freshly caught fish for lunch...

That kind of cruise on board a sailing boat* will give your a chance to transcend time and space, to break out of your usual routine, to reconnect with nature, to return to the essence of things...

 It's possible to charter an entire boat or a cabin for one week, a fortnight, or a longer time period (between three and eight weeks). Day or half-day excursions are available for checking out. Just choose the format you prefer. 

fairytale lodgings to try out

Example: Instead of (or along with) sailing, you can spend some time staying ashore in a sea-front holiday cottage, with a terrace on the ground floor and an air-conditioned bedroom  (2 twin beds) upstairs. At bedtime, you'll be put to sleep by the sound of waves crashing on the beach. And, as you wake up in the morning, treat yourself to a delicious breakfast with your very own seaview. All major amenities are just round the corner. There are various camping facilities (including a toilet block, a washing machine, etc.), which you are welcome to use, as well as a bar & restaurant (the best "in town") and a grocery store. The nearest village is a ten-minute walk from the cottage; it has a supermarket, a fruit & veg market, a bakery, several taverns, a pharmacy, a bus station, and a taxi stand. Plus, there's a wifi corner available in the camping's reception area.     

staying with a host

There's no better way to get to know a foreign country's culture, the everyday life of its inhabitants, some of its prettiest places not necessarily mentioned in the guidebooks... 
And it feels great to know that there's someone waiting for you out there. That you'll be able to exchange life impressions with a host family, who, apart from accommodation, are willing to give you their kind attention and care. 
This format is about getting a friend's welcome abroad. Like yourself, your hosts will be looking forward to meeting you. And when you finally arrive, they'll shower you with useful tips and addresses to facilitate your stay-- the kind of information we are normally eager to share with a dear faraway friend who has come to visit.
