We begin our journey in Athens, the birthplace of democracy. Remnants of Athens’ colourful past include the Acropolis, Parthenon and the Temple of Zeus (Olympic Temple) to name just a few, that can be discovered on a fascinating walk through history. (Ask us about joining a guided Archaeological Tour).
Our first stop is Agistri. With its rocky coastline and wooded cliffs that come right down to the sea. In between are rocky bathing platforms a few secluded beaches and the occasional traditional fishing village usually complete with a smattering or tavernas, cafes and bars. Inland you can walk, cycle or horsehide in the hills where figs, lemon and wild oregano grows in abundance.

Poros consists of two small islands set in the heart of the Saronic gulf. Its lively main town is strewn across the hillside and many neoclassical buildings grace the seafront. Exploring the narrow alleyways between whitewashed houses wrapped in bougainvillea is good way to build an appetite. Dotted across both islands are many wonderful, sheltered beaches that are perfect for swimming and a wide range of water sports.
ITINERARY | DAY 3
Ermioni is another destination favoured by the rich and famous and you’ll often see luxury boats anchored in the marina or nearby coves. Build on a peninsula it offers pretty beaches and an attractive harbour lined with tavernas. The pinewood forest at the edge of the peninsula is the idea place for a hilltop walk with sweeping views and the ruins of an ancient temple.

With its smart cafés, stylish boutiques and expensive villas Spetses has long been a favourite escape for high society and fashionistas. Oozing style and sophistication, horse drawn carriages, cycling or walking are the primary modes of transport and the slower pace the tempo to enjoy the people watching and absorb the local colour. Come evening candle lit tables, fine wine, soft music and lively conversation fills the streets and the air in the cosmopolitan neighbourhood of the Old Harbour.

The quintessential Greek island. Skintos bay is a popular anchorage with clear waters and shelter from wind. Inhabited mainly by sheep herders it’s perfect for those seeking relaxation, wild landscapes and magnificent sunsets.
ITINERARY | DAY 6
A favoured retreat for celebrities, artists and writers since the 1960’s, Hydra is another car free island and considered to be amongst the most beautiful in Greece. Water taxis whisk visitors between the picturesque harbour and isolated beaches. On dry land most goods are moved by donkeys accustomed to navigating the steps on the steep lanes that characterise the town. In the harbour humble fishing boats and luxury yachts bob side by side.
ITINERARY | DAY 7
With a laid back vibe, pretty beaches and lots of ancient sites Aegina is for many the epitome of Greek Island living, offering truly authentic taste of the island lifestyle. There is a coastal road that skirts most of the island giving access to many beaches each with its own small bar or restaurants serving fresh seafood. Scooter hire is a great way to get around – just don’t indulge in too many Ouzo’s.
