8 Days - Small Ship Cruises

Cruise into idyllic coves, explore picture-postcard harbours and visit some of the most beautiful islands in Greece. Our cruise visits some of most beautiful islands in the Ionian, and as we’ll be travelling by sea on our own wooden schooners, we can seek out coves and villages still relatively untouched by the modern world. Think of Greece and the first thing that comes to mind is its incredible islands – there’s more than 227 inhabited islands, all with their own unique ‘feel’, architecture and fascinating histories spanning thousands of years. For about 50 years in the 19th century the Ionian islands fell under British protection and they have been a welcoming destination for British travellers ever since. Our tour doesn’t visit busy towns or ancient monuments – it’s for those who just want a genuinely relaxing, informal and convivial break and to appreciate the simple pleasures of azure skies, emerald seas, simple fresh food and warm, starlit skies.
