The Argolic Gulf which is located a day’s sail from Alimos marina in Athens is a gorgeous area to explore with a charter yacht. It is close to Athens airport
with its year round accessibility of cheap flights. A 1 week charter is enough to sample some of the most beautiful waters in the Med. Whether you
opt for a bareboat yacht charter or a skippered yacht charter, a spring or Easter sailing holiday in this part of Greece is just what the doctor ordered for your
winter blues.

The coastline of Peloponnese together with the beautiful islands of Hydra and Spetses have a lot to offer at any time of the year but early in season this
cruising area is ideal as it is less busy and the climate is not so hot for our friends from Northern Europe.

Hydra has to be among the most beautiful of the Greek islands and because the harbour is small it’s worth arriving there early enough to grab a mooring.
There’s a wide choice of bars and traditional tavernas along the quay that serve superb culinary delights to suite all taste. The island has a unique atmosphere
partly due to an absence of cars. The waters around Hydra offer an excellent choice of anchorages and small bays.

Spetses, an island which is steeped in history is a little further down the coast from Hydra. The island is full of neo classical houses and also has a number of
traditional boatyards. The island boasts two ports and filled with very good tavernas that serve freshly caught fish. There’s a good marina in the Old Harbour
which is popular with visiting yachts and luxury cruisers which have been chartered out from various locations.
The south and west coastlines boast beautiful sandy beaches. Do not forget to take the time to kick back, drop anchor and take a cool dip in these exquisite waters.

Nafplion on the Peloponnese coast is also definitely worth visiting when sailing in the Argolic Gulf on a 1 week charter with its charming old narrow streets with houses covered in colourful bougainvillea and jasmine. The town is overlooked by Palamidi, a Venetian Citadel and a little to the north are two world heritage sites, the wonderful ruins of the Citadel of Mycenae and Tiryns.

Sailing in these glorious waters along what has to be one of the most beautiful coastlines in the Med is a sheer pleasure at any time of the year. After this years cold winter a week on the water with one of our yachts, exploring unspoiled bays, taking that 1st swim of the day and basking in some sunshine will banish those winter blues
away – guaranteed. Book your winter blues remedy now!
