Highlights

Small is beautiful: Folegandros island


A hidden gem that proves that small is beautiful, and will sweep you off your feet with its beauty, charm and relaxing rhythm. A few years ago, Folegandros was a well-kept secret, known to a discerning few. Now, more and more people are discovering this tiny, remote island with its rugged beauty and easy pace. Its main town, Hora, teeters precariously on the edge of a high cliff with its many squares framed by graceful, typically Cycladic church facades and old-fashioned tavernas.

Galileo: Your home away from home


Imagine a place far from home that feels just like home, where the borders are delineated by the golden shores of the sea; and home is wherever the anchors drop. Imagine 157 feet of comfort, old style beauty, and safety classified by the latest International “Safety of Life at Sea” (SOLAS) standards. You have arrived on board the Galileo!

Deck BBQ & Swim-stop in Polyaigos island


A paradise on earth awaits. Polyaigos is the biggest uninhabited island in the Mediterranean and a veritable ecological haven. It provides shelter to rare species of flora and fauna while its gorgeous beaches and its exotic bays attract yacht owners from all over the world.
