FLEXIBLE SAILING HOLIDAYS ON
"Our 4-day charter of Golden Odysseus was the highlight
of our fortnight in Greece. Kate and Kostas welcomed us
aboard their spacious yacht and took us on a relaxing
cruise from Paxos back to Corfu, visiting some lovely
towns on the mainland on the way. Kostas handled the
boat like a pro, whilst Kate provided fabulous meals and
coffees. Once anchored, the children could swim, snorkel
and even have a go at kayak-surfing. Do not expect
uniforms and spit and polish, this is a holiday for
people who want to cruise this lovely area in a very
comfortable boat with delightful hosts who can show you
the real Ionian Island experience." - CC, Dorchester
