All our villas come fully staffed, with a chef and of course a beautiful pool. A number of them have stunning private gardens and grounds where lunch or dinner can be set up in a different place each day. The minimum length of stay is one week and the staff size at each villa is entirely customisable depending on your requirements.

A number of our villas have access to a private boat which you can use to explore the island. Lunches can be had on board and dinners can be set up on private beaches.

There is no greater sense of freedom than boarding your own private yacht and there are not many places as beautiful to explore by boat as the Greek islands. Over the years we have designed many itineraries around the Greek islands for clients who have rented their own yacht. A typical navigation will last a week and depending on where you choose to go will mix learning with relaxation – enjoying everything from private guided visits to archaeological sites to finding secluded bays of serene beauty for swimming. We can also help advise on renting boats.

Turkish Gulet

Over the years we have sourced some beautiful 'gulet' style boats for families and groups of friends. The boats are very comfortable and each have an board chef. Our local guides can meet you at ports to show you the sights.

Rest on board and take in the glorious coastline. Relax in the thermal waters of Vulcano or venture on land for spa treatments and hydromassage pools. Enjoy the black sands of Salina and hidden sea grotto in Filicudi. This is a place where you can truly unwind.

The islands are as varied as they are beautiful. Sail to Panarea to see the remains of a Roman port deep under water. Drop anchor to enjoy its chic restaurants and shops. (In Spring or Autumn climb Monte Fossa delle Felci in Vulcano, the highest peak in the archipelago.) Dive in the serene waters off Filicudi. Cruise to Salina at sunset and relax on Pollara, the setting for ‘Il Postino’. Or drop anchor opposite Sromboli and enjoy a candle-lit dinner as the volcano gently erupts in an unforgettable display. Lipari’s acropolis spans 5,000 years of history and is layered with Neolithic, Bronze Age, Ancient Greek and Norman ruins.

The seven islands of the Aeolian archipelago were designated a Unesco World Heritage Site in 2000. Volcanic origins have created stunning rocks that dip into crystal water. Each island has its unique charm, from the green vineyards of Salina to the glamorous jet-set on Panarea.

Our clients enjoy first class service on board and superb Aeolian cuisine: the freshest fish, pomodorini, olives, wild greens and delicious wine.
