From rustic villages, white houses trimmed and roofed in bright blue clinging to sheer cliffs, and islands covered in olive groves and ancient ruins; from sophisticated resorts where the highest standards of food and wine are served to traditional tavernas where the Ouzo and Retsina flow; from Corfu in the northern Ionian to Santorini in the southern Cyclades and Symi in the western Dodecanese, there are so many reasons to visit the islands by luxury charter yacht.
For an incredible fifty centuries, the Greek islands have been the crossroads between North Africa, Asia Minor and Europe. Greece is home to more than 100 absolutely spectacular archaeological sites. From the major sites such as the sacred ruins of Delos to the quieter, sometimes overgrown, remains spread across most of the islands, you will get the chance to step back in time when you step ashore from your luxury charter yacht.
But Greece is not just about history it is probably better known as a holiday destination for its deep blue seas and the beautiful beaches that line the coasts of these stunning islands. We've all seen the photos: the aqua blue-green waters gently lapping golden sand or impressive volcanic rock formations. With the eleventh longest coastline in the world there are countless superb, gorgeous beaches for your luxury yacht to anchor off.
As your luxury charter yacht takes you on your island hopping adventure you will discover that each island has it's own unique cuisine including distinctive local cheeses, wild greens and honey. And of course there is the freshest seafood everywhere. On many islands, you'll encounter the Italian heritage of pasta with a Greek influence, like rich sauces with mussels steamed in ouzo. On others, the Ottoman legacy can be seen in the spiced sweets and pastries.
Whether you are young in age or young at heart Greece is fun wherever you go; from pumped-up party music to chilled-out relaxation at a luxury hotel pool bar there are many faces to the Greek nightlife. Enjoy cocktails in retro bars overlooking charming harbours and stunning sunsets or join the locals at a village square taking part in traditional dances. The choices are endless and on your luxury charter yacht you have the chance to enjoy many of them.
The Greek islands enjoy a warm and sunny Mediterranean climate. Everywhere the summers are hot and dry with brilliant "wall-to-wall" blue clear skies. With long summer sunshine hours and very little rainfall this is the perfect climate for a successful luxury yacht charter.
