Welcome to Sifnos


During the Archaic period (from about the 8th century BC), Sifnos was enriched by its gold and silver deposits, but by the 5th century BC the mines were exhausted. Sifnos is now known for pottery, basket weaving and cookery. Visitors flock to the southern half of the island, served by good bus links, but it's worth getting your own wheels and driving to the remote beaches of the north, where the main road culminates in – you guessed it! – a church.

Sailing Greece from Athens on a Private Yacht, weekly or short

All Weekly trips depart on a Saturday, around mid-day when boat is ready. We sail off the Alimos Marina of Athens, Pier 8, having bought food and drinks provisions for snacks, light lunch, salads and drinks on board. The Alimos Marina is very easily accessible form the airport by Bus (X96), 45' to Eden stop or from the Athens city center by taxi, tram or bus. I shall propose an itinerary around the islands and coasts, depending on how fast or how slow you want to go, and you shall make choices ! Meaning, how many different islands you want to visit within the week, and how many stops for swimming. Our only constraints are daylight and weather. I shall advise what time we need to be on the route to a safe anchorage or port before dark. In strong wind conditions we shall play safe and relax. Within one week we can nicely tour most of the Saronic-Argolic islands & coasts, namely Aegina, Poros, Hydra, Spetses, Angistri, Methana, PortoHeli, Dokos, Ermioni, also Epidavros (where the ancient theatre for a tragedy performance!). Alternatively, we head to the Cyclades, stopping at cap Sounion, and visit Kea (Tzia), Kythnos, up to Serifos, Sifnos. To visit Mykonos, Paros, Milos, Santorini we shall need 2 weeks to better enjoy the trip. A third route is to the Ionian (west) islands, crossing the Corinth Canal. Depending on your desire to discover the inner world of the any island you like, we may stay for more days, tour it on foot, rent bicycles or motor bikes, visiting ancient ruins, local museums, wine tasting or other attractions. The 1-3 day trips sailing off Athens, will allow us to cover the Athens riviera or two to three islands within the Saronic-Argolic gulfs.  The yacht is a 39ft (11,5m) ELAN, featuring 3 double wide cabins that comfortably sleep 6 persons, 2 bathrooms, the salon (where skipper sleeps) and kitchen. It is equipped with roller sails (both mainsail and genoa), GPS plotter, solar panel, 3 water tanks (512lts), electric fridge, music system.There is so much to discover in terms of Greek islands ! Some say that a lifetime is not enough to sail all of them and really get to know them. That's why we have guests who keep coming back to us summer after summer, for 12 years now !
