Accommodation

Facilities

  • Kitchen

Your floating hotel during your stay is a beautiful 'Beneteau Oceanis 43' sailing yacht with 3 large convenient double bed cabins, for a maximum of 6 guests.

It is recommended that you come with a friend or partner to share a cabin together as each cabin has a double bed, so you will share your bed with another guest. There are 2 shared bathrooms with hot showers.

Program

The route for the week typically covers smaller distances, up to 2 to 3 hours of sailing per day. The itinerary is outlined below but this could change, subject to the weather conditions.

Saturday, 5th June

You set sail from Lefkas Marina heading off for a wild 5-hour sail to Kefalonia! You will dock in Sami, where guests arriving can also board the boat.

Sunday, 6th June

You set out for the mythical island of Ithaca where you will stop for a swim in your own secluded day, and practicing breathing exercises. You will dock at Ligia, your own little island off Ithaca where you have your afternoon yoga practice and spend the night.

Monday, 7th June

You will start the day with sunrise yoga. After breakfast, you head north along the island stopping in Filiatro or Gidaki to spend time on the best beaches on the island.

You will dock and spend the night in Vathi, Ithaca's main village where you will have your yoga session on the hill and you can explore the plenty of restaurant and bar options available.

Tuesday, 8th June

You travel by dinghy or paddleboard to your spectacular morning yoga location, Lazareto, a little island in the middle of Vathi bay. After this, you have breakfast in town and gather provisions, because today you head to Atokos, an uninhabited island far from everything. Your afternoon yoga session will be under the cliffs and the evening will be spent under the stars!

Wednesday, 9th June

The day starts with morning yoga, followed by a short sail and a beach stop as you head to your final destination, the smallest village of the Ionian, Kastos island. This village has just 20 inhabitants,1 street, 2 cars, 2 restaurants, and 2 bars along with its own unique friendly energy. The afternoon yoga session will be at the yard of Mylo's bar with optional Thai massage and expect the freshest fish dining ever!

Τhursday, 10th June

Possibly some action upwind sailing to reach one of the less crowded beaches of Ithaca renowned for its stunning crystal clear waters! You cross Kefalonia to end up in beautiful Fiscardo, with colorful houses and Venetian architecture. Afternoon yoga will be by the lighthouse followed by fine dining options.

Friday, 11th June

Those who disembark in Kefalonia check-out here in the morning. From here, you can take a taxi ride to Sami or Argostoli to spend more holiday days, or catch your flight.

The yacht continues north towards Lefkada. On route, you make a beach stop in Meganisi. You dock in Lefkas Marina in the afternoon offering you the chance to explore the cosmopolitan Lefkas town by night.
