OUR HAPPY GUEST FEEDBACK:
Catherine : AU
We were a group of six friends who had never sailed before and our time with Renato & Luciana on their boat is something we'll never forget. From breakfast to bed the experience was delightful. Amazing food, immaculate rooms, lots of laughs, smooth sailing. We travelled from island to island, stopping to swim, snorkel and sunbake. Upon arrival at an island, Renato & Luciana gave us a good history and useful tips on where to go and what to see. It really was an unforgettable holiday and will be incredibly hard to top. We would recommend without hesitation.
One of the best holidays I've ever taken. The sailing was relaxing and the scenery stunning. Luciana and Renato have a beautiful boat that they take great pride in, it was a pleasure to spend the time with them. The itinerary was perfect - not rushed, and it felt like we were taken to some of the best spots, they know these islands and how to avoid the crowds. I would definitely consider another holiday with them.Luciana and Renato were fantastic. They were welcoming and warm, and made every effort to make us feel comfortable. They were engaging and made the sailing seem effortless. Luciana is incredible in the kitchen; the food she provides is healthy and absolutely delicious.
I had a wonderful holiday on Renato and Luciana's very comfortable boat ... they both looked after me very well indeed .. and Luciana is a EXCELLENT cook .. delicious breakfasts --fruit ,yogurt croissants and coffee were served down below .. and lovely lunches were served in the sunshine up on deck ... and in all ports we anchored Renato and Luciana knew the best restaurants and we had very Greek food.The cabin was very comfortable as is the whole boat .... and we anchored in some very pretty isolated bays for safe swimming .... a really good and memorable holiday -- i very much hope to be joining them for another cruise next summer ..!!

Important: I never, ever give five stars; I'm a tough grader. :-) Renato and Luciana were absolutely lovely, and it was a fantastic way to understand what sailing the Greek Islands can be -- and what to think about for next time. Renato lives up to his resume in stability, intelligence, experience both general and also in local waters, and patience, though I can see where if people don't ask questions first, they might get "terse" answers. :-) I don't mind; he was a great guide to the boat, the waters, the weather, and the islands. Luciana is the yin to Renato's yang. Every bit as experienced in the ways of sailing, and firm when professionalism demands it; but naturally warm and expert in the kitchen for the relaxation of all. Advice: Do confirm intended route with them prior to leaving to be clear about your desires. They're flexible, but as routes can change for many reasons, do have a good, clear conversation so you know where you're going. A stupendous trip, & we'd do it again!
This vacation was AMAZING. We feel very fortunate to have found Luciana and Renato and to have sailed with them for our week in the Greek Saronic Islands. Renato is an extremely experienced and accommodating Captain. He took us into private bays and coastal spots that other captains with less experience may not have been capable of which gave us an up close look and feel for many places tourists never get to see. He is fun to be around, very warm and very honest. Luciana is also amazing, so warm, beautiful and a delight to be around. You can't help but love her immediately and her cooking is chef quality! We love them both dearly and can't wait to sail with them aga
PLEASE TAKE NOTE THAT our cruises are open to all , even inexperienced people because we organize our routes in order to make navigation pleasant and therefore sometimes the planned route can be changed according to the weather forecast.
For this reason in JULY OUR CRUISES START FROM KOS AND WE SAIL TO THE DODECANESE ISLANDS ( north or SUD ,depending from the wind ).
And In AUGUST WE SAIL FROM RHODES TO THE EAST CYCLADES ,KARPATHOS OR KASTELLORIZO AND TURKEY ( Gocek and FETHYIE ).
THIS BECAUSE IN THESE MONTHS THE WIND AT CYCLADES IS TOO STRONG AND THE SAILING CAN BE NOT PLAISANT, WITH THE POSSIBILITY TO STAY STILL IN A HARBOUR FOR 2 or 3 days.
