With or without sailing experience, friends, couples or families join us and share the joys of sailing and pleasures of life in an beautifully preserved area of Greece.
Taking the helm, relaxing in heavenly coves, diving from the boat, meeting dolphins at sea, hearing Greek islands stories from our skipper are unforgettable moments my friends and I shared during our 7 days cruise in Greece. Thank you Archipel, thank you George, our skipper! Corinne Yacht charter in the Greek islands in September
Returning home from Greece many memories rush to our minds. Thanks to Vanessa inquiring and booking was easy and pleasant. The Beneteau 50 was solid and seaworthy. It is a beautiful and comfortable boat on which we always felt safe. Eva is an extraordinary skipper and she was like family for a week!!! She had everything and everyone loved her! Skilled, courageous, tenacious, cautious, daredevil, listening, discreet, storyteller, sharing, observant, fascinating, cultivated, wild, engaging, rasping, conscientious, adventuress, talented ... in short we expect her visiting us off season in Brittany! Thank you team Archipel for this unforgettable week! Paros is definitely a top destination. Carry on! Philippe, Armelle, Martin, Cecile, Ludovic, Nicolas, Jenny Yacht charter in Greece in July
Spending a week on a catamaran away from crowds and discover exceptional landscapes: that was our and our two adult daughters dream. Nikos, our skipper, with his professionalism, availability and discretion, made it all happen. This first maritime adventure even took the form of an exceptional human experience. Thank you Nikos, simply.
The boat was perfect in all respects: size, equipment, maintenance. Being able to leave Parikia without worrying about refueling was much appreciated. Our days were punctuated by a good breakfast, a succession of coves with crystal clear turquoise waters, lunch on board and swimming / snorkeling sessions . At night we would savor fine Greek food in the taverns Nikos advised us of. During all these meals shared with him we learned a lot about this country of his he knows so much about. This helped forge a true friendship. We spent our nights in either a port or at anchor in a cove, hot water and electricity never being in short supply.
We expressed our desire to Nikos to visit Milos. He met our expectations by tailoring the route to the ever present wind and waves. These did not really bother us, except that we could not always lay on the trampoline to enjoy the view and sunbathe. Everyone was encouraged to steer the catamaran and learn some basic navigation! In six days, we discovered Folegandros, Milos, Sifnos, Kimolos and Polyaigos. Our eyes are still full of memories: the strikingly beautiful cliffs, postcard waters and even dolphins.
Thanks to Vanessa’s availability and flawless organization, but also thanks to Nikos’ generosity, we already know that we shall be back for more! Nathalie, Pascal, Melissa and Emilie Catamaran charter in Greece in August
We would like to thank the Archipel team for our exhilarating trip to Greece. We enjoyed the concept of cabin charter, the atmosphere was friendly but without too much proximity. We were 8 participants all told, each couple with its own private cabin and bathroom. The catamaran Pahi is so spacious that sometimes one thought to be on its own! We visited an island every day. It was love at first sight in Sifnos, we had a beachside dinner in scenic Vathi bay, our boat moored close by. A special word for our skipper Eric who never lost patience with us landlubbers and who took a sincere pleasure at introducing us to hidden coves, Greek dishes or local custom. Jeanne Claire and Patrick can only recommend you Archipel for this type of vacation in Greece! Jeanne Claire, Patrick Cabin charter cruise in the Cyclades islands in June
