Use Corfu as a starting point to visit the Ionian Islands, an archipelago off the coast of Greece, northwest of the Peloponnese.
The seven islands — Corfu, Paxos, Ithaca, Kefalonia, Lefkas and Zante — are known for their beaches, clear waters, woodlands and historical sites, including several medieval settlements. As they lie to the west of mainland Greece, they're also sheltered from the Etesian winds, which can be quite strong in the Cyclades islands in summer.
Departing from Lorient, Quiberon or Port-la-Forêt, set sail with our professional skipper, Jean, on board his sailboat (Sun Fast 52, 15m+ in length for extra space and comfort) for a sailing weekend around Belle-Ile or the Glénan Islands! Explore the world of seabirds and the fascinating seascape. South Brittany lives with the tides and changes with the mood of the wind. Enjoy our all inclusive cruise, which covers the cost of fuel, bedding, bath linen and full board (i.e. there's no need to shop and waste precious cruise time). The boat is equipped with a spinnaker sail offering the thrill of speed on the ocean waves and a tender for slipping away for quick dips in the bay.
Set sail from the port of Brusc (15 m from Toulon), with Jean, our professional skipper and sailing instructor to discover the Iles des Embiez then, depending on weather conditions and what you feel like doing, you'll set sail for:
La Ciotat and Les Calanques ([[click here | https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Calanque]] to find out more about Les Calanques)
Port-Cros and the Iles de Porquerolles ([[click here|http://www.hyeres-tourisme.com/lessentiel-dhyeres/incontournable/les-iles-porquerolles-port-cros-le-levant]] to find out more about Port-Cros and Porquerolles)
Embark on a 5-day cruise, departing from Granville, only a few hours’ sail from the destination, for a trip around the Channel Islands and total change of scenery. You can savour the atmosphere of typical English pubs (discover our selection here), you will also discover some stunning landscapes, and an impeccably preserved natural environment.
