One Week Paxos Flotilal 2019
Click to enlargeenlarge

Swim, sail & simply relax...

The Paxos flotilla visits some of the most picturesque harbours in the Ionian Islands. This flotilla sailing area is largely sheltered by Corfu and Paxos Islands, with regular afternoon breezes. We spend our evenings in wonderfully ethnic Greek village harbours and bays where you can swim and simply relax.

What's the weather like?

The warm sun and emerald water make Paxos an idyllic place to start sailing or to introduce family and friends to the pastime. The regular afternoon breezes make this an ideal first flotilla for couples, young families or those making the step from dinghies to yachts. We challenge you not to enjoy it!

Where will we sail?

Gouvia Marina on Corfu Island is your flotilla starting point - with plenty of choices of restaurants, shops and facilities it is a perfect place to begin your holiday! Days are spent sailing from harbour to harbour, stopping for lunch and swims, in stunning bays along the way. Evenings are spent in wonderfully ethnic Greek village harbours and bays where you can kick back and relax. The highlight of the Paxos area flotilla cruise is, of course, the island of Paxos with its four beautiful harbours - Lakka, Longos, Gaios and Mongonisi.

Typical Itinerary & Highlights

Days 1 - 2, Join the flotilla in Gouvia

Following a short transfer from Corfu airport you will arrive in Gouvia Marina. Here you will meet your lead crew and home from home for the week (your yacht). After a short boat brief you have a range of restaurants to choose from in the Marina for a bite to eat!

On Monday morning there will be a thorough boat brief and a chat about where you are heading that day. There is a supermarket in the Marina for you to stock up on provisions before you head out for a lazy lunch at anchor...

Days 3 - 5, Sailing around Paxos Island

From Gouvia you will wend your way south to the delightful villages of Lakka, Longos, Gaios and Mongonisi on Paxos Island.

The crystal clear emerald water of Lakka Bay is not to be missed for a lunch stop within a stones throw of Lakka Village - a favourite evening destination. Gaios is a traditional Greek town, with a number of tavernas to explore. Mongonisi is a highlight for many - the only stop on Paxos without a village. Mongonisi's charm lies in the idyllic environment where you can swim of the back of your boat and Greek dance the night away.

A highlight of the trip is a lunchtime stop in Emerald Bay on Anti-Paxos Island for a lazy lunch and swim stop. For the more adventurous sailors among you, a sail down west coast of Paxos, with it's stunning cliffs is a great way to spend a day.

Days 5 - 6, Parga and Corfu Town

A mainland stop in the Greek Town of Parga should not be missed, with its long sandy beach, buzzing promenade and the unbeatable choice of evening entertainment. Simply moor the boat on stunning Valtos Beach and catch Yiannis ferry boat into town. A walk up to the citadel is also recommended.

The first or penultimate night stop is likely to be Corfu Town where you can moor in the yacht club beneath the citadel and spend an evening wandering the rustic backstreets of the town.

Our Shore to Sail holidays are a combination of a one or two week flotilla sailing holiday with another relaxing week or two ashore.

These holidays will appeal to those who enjoy sailing but have family or friends who are not quite so enthusiastic about sailing - a compromise can now be made!

Most people opt for a week of sailing followed by a week of winding down on shore. However it is entirely up to you to do what you want to do (and when!)

Iris Hotel and Apartments

The Iris Hotel has been a popular choice for flotilla sailors for many years. This accommodation option will fit in with any of our flotillas starting and finishing on Lefkas Island. The hotel itself is a small family run hotel located close to Nidri Town. It has a combination of studio rooms for two or three people and apartments that can sleep up to 4.

Salvator Spa Hotel & Villas

The Salvator Spa Hotel is perched in the hills above Parga town and is a slightly more luxurious offering. The rooms on offer range from the Deluxe Room for two people, up to the Superior 2 Room Villa for up to 6 people. The hotel itself has an excellent restaurant, pool and spa facilities and all villas come with their own private pool.

 

Villa MeandrosDJI 0202 copy

Built into the hill the ground floor level comprises of the master bedroom, a large kitchen and living space. On the same level you will find a huge outdoor seating area and a private pool.
