Day 1 Corfu. Kassiopi Island

On board, we, Saint-Tropez Yacht Charter, have already prepared soft drinks and champagne for you. Go ahead!

The island of Corfu is the northernmost and second largest of the Ionian Islands, extending parallel to the mainland coast for 65 km. The shape of Corfu resembles a sickle, to which it was compared in ancient times: the concave side, with the town and port of Kerkyra in the center, is located opposite the Albanian coast. Corfu is washed by two seas: from the south and southeast, from Greece by the Ionian Sea, and from the north and northwest, closer to Albania by the Adriatic Sea. On the east and west coasts, water temperatures and sea conditions can vary significantly. The western coast of Corfu is washed by the open sea, so the water and air temperature depends on the prevailing current - cold or warm. And the water temperature can change every day. The east coast opens to the strait, where the water warms in summer and is not as dependent on currents. It can be stormy on the west coast, while it will be calm and calm on the east coast. Founded even earlier than Syracuse, Corfu had significant commercial importance and many peoples, generals and tyrants from ancient times until the 20th century almost took turns for the right to conquer this island.


Saint-Tropez Yacht Charter tells:

The army of Alexander the Great tried to capture Corfu, the wars of the Ottoman Empire also did not bypass the island, for almost 400 years Corfu belonged to Venice. The conquerors brought a whole bunch of interesting subtleties and nuances to the culture and way of life of the island - from a mixture of languages with many borrowed Italian and Venetian words, to monumental and sophisticated architecture.


The Saint-Tropez yacht charter team is well-versed in history and geography. During the cruise we are ready to share interesting facts


The capital of the island of Corfu bears the name that belonged to the whole island - Kerkyra, this was the name of one of the nymphs, who was loved by the God of the seas Poseidon. Having kidnapped his beloved, Poseidon brought her to a beautiful, previously unknown emerald island. Later they had a son, Phaeax, who became the ancestor of all the Phaeacian people who lived on the island of Scheria - the mythical name of Kerkyra. And, as described in the Homeric Iliad, the ancient Phaeacians sheltered Odysseus when he returned to his native Ithaca. When the Byzantines arrived on the island, they were impressed by its landscapes and named the island "Corypho" - "city of peaks", later this name was transformed into Corfu under the influence of the Latin language . Nowadays, the town of Kerkyra is a cozy medieval European town, whose appearance has been shaped by history itself. Its historic center is a fortification - a labyrinth of narrow streets covered with cobblestones. Kerkyra is divided into districts, each distinguished by its authenticity. Two fortresses have also been preserved in memory of the wars, the oldest of which was built at a time when the island of Corfu belonged to Byzantium. Both fortresses are open to tourists and concerts are even held in the old fortress. Let's go to a concert tonight! Saint-Tropez Yacht Charter will help you book tickets for any event.


Saint-Tropez Yacht Charter is sure you are ready for a glass of champagne!

Saint-Tropez Yacht Charter and our guests have already reached the first point where we will swim for the first time. We reached the island of Kassiopi. On the 70 Sunreef Power yacht we will sail to Engagement Bay.

Engagement Bay is a small bay with crystal clear turquoise water and small light pebbles. The beach is located in a natural place with very picturesque views surrounded by rocks. It is partially covered by trees, which create natural shade. This beach is not a famous place, so it is well suited for a relaxing vacation.


Saint-Tropez Yacht Charter is sure you are already hungry. We will prepare snacks for you, as well as dinner. The Saint-Tropez Yacht Charter team only uses fresh and organic products that we purchase from local markets.


Saint-Tropez Yacht Charter tells:

Almost at the northeastern tip of the peninsula is the fishing village of Kassiopi, the main seaside resort in this part of Kerkyra. Unlike the north coast resorts, Kassiopi is a bustling little town centered around a picturesque horseshoe-shaped harbor dominated by the ruins of a Byzantine castle. The village attracts visitors from all over the world with its beautiful coves suitable for swimming.

The coastline to the west of Kasyopi, around the northernmost point of the island - Cape Ayia Ekaterini, turns into rather boring marshy lands until the road reaches Almyros beach - one of the longest on the island.

We will spend the night here and tomorrow we will go to Albania.

Saint-Tropez Yacht Charter will also help you book a hotel if you do not want to spend the night on board. But Saint-Tropez Yacht Charter is convinced that the cabins of the 70 Sunreef Power yacht are no different from a luxury hotel.



Day 2. Albania

The morning with Saint-Tropez Yacht Charter is really good. We will offer you fragrant coffee or fresh orange juice.


Finally, to Albania, a country that emerged from decades of isolation in the 1990s. It's not the first choice for European travelers, but put aside your preconceptions and you'll discover a fascinating world of Ottoman architecture, rugged mountains and pristine beaches. Albania's waters are crystal clear, so we suggest swimming. And then we will make a stop at the port of Albania.

Durres, Albania's second largest city, is located down the coast, just 40 km from Albania's colorful capital, Tirana. Durres is an ideal playground for history lovers. The city was founded in 627 BC, then became an ancient Greek colony Epidamnos, before the arrival of the Romans, who renamed it Dyrrhachium.


Today you can see the medieval city walls, the Roman amphitheater and baths, the Byzantine courtyard, archaeological and ethnographic museums. Durres has a large, modern and secure commercial port built to serve large passenger, cargo and cruise ships.

With the Saint-Tropez Yacht Charter team, we will visit deserted beaches. You will have the opportunity to soak up the sun and explore the picturesque countryside.

Further south, along the Albanian coast, lies Saranda, the epicenter of the Albanian Riviera. Perfect white sand beaches flow into azure waters all along the coast. There are many day trips to the surrounding hills to explore the monasteries, castles and ruins exuding ancient history.


On the 70 Sunreef Power yacht, with Saint-Tropez Yacht Charter, we set off on a trip across the Adriatic. If you are looking for new ideas before the start of the Mediterranean charter season, the Saint-Tropez yacht charter agency can develop an individual tour.


Saint-Tropez Yacht Charter also highly recommends tasting the national cuisine of Albania. The dishes of Albanian cuisine echo Turkish and Balkan classics. However, the locals skillfully adapted it for themselves. They love meat, fresh vegetables and fragrant spices here.

Saint-Tropez Yacht Charter will help you reserve a table in a restaurant or organize a candlelit dinner on the deck of our 70 Sunreef Power yacht.




It is time to move on! A morning swim in the warm Mediterranean Sea will help you wake up. Saint-Tropez Yacht Charter recommends taking morning landscape photos. And we go further to Montenegro.


Saint-Tropez Yacht Charter tells:

Montenegro is located in the north of Albania, it is a relatively unknown place for recreation, slowly attracting yachting enthusiasts from all over the world. And with good reason. The Balkan state offers some of the most idyllic anchorages in the entire Adriatic.

It's interesting to know:

Among the most impressive sights is the small town of Kotor, hidden in the deepest channel of the Bay of Kotor. The city lies 60 nautical miles south of Dubrovnik, enveloped in Europe's southernmost fjord. The old town is a maze of winding cobblestone streets shaded by century-old stone buildings filled with cafes and boutiques.

Around Kotor there are mountains, forests and beaches to explore, as well as plenty of activities such as rafting, water skiing and mountain hiking. It’s a lovely place that involves organizing a photo shoot! The Saint-Tropez Yacht Charter team will be holding the camera!

Saint-Tropez Yacht Charter can help you organize a mountain hike or rafting trip.


The port of Kotor is located close to the town, but be sure to also explore the famous Porto Montenegro Marina nearby, designed to accommodate the world's largest and most luxurious superyachts. We will dock at the port and spend the night.

In the evening you can stroll around the town for dinner. Saint-Tropez Yacht Charter will select a restaurant with local dishes.


What Saint-Tropez Yacht Charter recommends you try:

If you like hearty meat dishes, try sach in Montenegro. The most popular is lamb, but some restaurants serve chicken, rabbit meat and fish. Sač is the name of an impressive cast iron pot. The dish cooked there has the same name, but the type of meat is always specified. Jagnjetina ispod sa

It includes golden potatoes, juicy tomatoes, onion rings, broth and white wine.


In the morning, you will wake up to the aromas of fresh pastries. The Saint-Tropez Yacht Charter team brought a Zeljanica from a local bakery

Zelyanitsa is a ruddy, appetizing and hearty pie. It is baked on thin dough with lots of brined cheese, eggs and green vegetable topping.


After a hearty breakfast, it is time to swim one last time in Montenegro and leave for Croatia.

With the Saint-Tropez Yacht Charter team, you will first sail to the islands of Croatia. And our first stop is the island of Vis.



Saint-Tropez Yacht Charter tells:

Vis, the furthest inhabited island from the mainland, was closed to tourists until 1989 - a naval base was located here. Vis's popularity increased significantly after the romantic comedy "Mamma Mia 2" was filmed here.

Saint-Tropez Yacht Charter recommends:

Have a movie night on the 70 Sunreef Power Yacht. We are sure you have already liked the yacht. It can be bought for 1.4 million euros.


Saint-Tropez Yacht Charter tells:

Day 5. Korcula

Saint-Tropez Yacht Charter offers to visit another island for this day, namely Korcula.


Korcula is part of the Dalmatian Islands and is the second most populated land region in the Adriatic region. Along its winding coastline (180 km), between welcoming coves, among pine forests and olive groves, there are small fishing villages. Vineyards add a special picturesqueness to the local landscapes, because it is not in vain that Korcula is famous for the production of excellent white wines — “Grk” and “Chic”.

The Saint-Tropez Yacht Charter team will bring different types of wines from the shore. Get ready for an exquisite wine tasting! Cheers.


Saint-Tropez Yacht Charter recommends:

The crystal clear, warm waters of the Mediterranean Sea will relax you and prepare you for sleep.


Day 6. Hvar Split, Croatia

Today with Saint-Tropez Yacht Charter we go to the island of Hvar

Saint-Tropez Yacht Charter tells:

The island fascinates with its pristine nature and its traditional way of life. Like hundreds of years ago, the aroma of freshly baked bread is in the air here early in the morning, fishermen go to sea and farmers put their goods on the shelves.

Saint-Tropez Yacht Charter will offer you natural production products - oil, honey and wine. You will also enjoy the olive pâté and anchovies with browned butter. Taste delicious seafood dishes, drink local wines, and immerse yourself in the easy rhythm of the island.



And we go to the historic island of Split.

The second largest city in Croatia and one of the oldest cities in Europe, Split was founded in the 3rd century and, according to one of the legends, the Roman Emperor Diocletian was born here. Today Split is the largest economic and cultural center of Dalmatia, and its beaches are famous all over the world for their cleanliness and comfort. We will also go to the shores of the Adriatic to take a closer look at the main sights of Split, a beautiful Croatian city.

The evening at Saint-Tropez Yacht Charter promises to be boring! Our yacht charter team in Saint-Tropez invites you to party aboard the yacht or organize a romantic candlelit dinner.


Day 7. Montreuil — sous-Bois-Dubrovnik

Saint-Tropez Yacht Charter offers to spend the last day on another island, namely…

Murter

This pretty Croatian island with crystal clear waters and beautiful bays is connected to the mainland by a drawbridge.

With Saint-Tropez Yacht Charter we will see the beauty of the island and get to know its culture.

Murter is famous as a picturesque resort town with developed infrastructure and magnificent beaches — mainly pebble and sandy, but there are also rocky ones. Here, surrounded by olive groves and fig orchards, ancient villages are scattered — in the largest of them, resort life is concentrated.

Saint-Tropez Yacht Charter tells:

For example, the village of Betina is famous for its ancient architecture, pretty cafes and squares. The town of Murter is located in an enclosed bay and is popular with boaters, and Tisno is known for its large annual festivals (food festivals and folk festivals). Yezera is a quiet fishing village where many sports and events take place.

And we sail with Saint-Tropez Yacht Charter to our last stop, Dubrovnik.

Dubrovnik, Croatia

The pearl of the Adriatic is often called Dubrovnik, one of the most beautiful towns in Croatia on the southern coast of Dalmatia. This ancient city was founded in the 7th century. Almost its entire history dates back to the old town, which in 1979 was included by UNESCO in the list of the best European monuments of the Renaissance.

People go to Dubrovnik for delicious food, Venetian-style architecture, very beautiful landscapes, well-kept beaches, awarded with the prestigious international Blue Flag award.

Saint-Tropez Yacht Charter recommends swimming in the azure waters of the Mediterranean Sea, sunbathing on board the 70 Sunreef Power yacht, and also organizing a photo session.


Facts of Saint-Tropez Yacht Charter:

The city also inspires fans of “Game of Thrones” — it was Dubrovnik that was given the role of capital of the Seven Kingdoms in the series.

It is in Dubrovnik that you can see with your own eyes not only the royal harbor and the place where the epic battle of Chernovodnaya was filmed, but also the coveted Iron Throne, and even the gardens of the Red Castle, which are located in the Trsteno Arboretum, 18 km from the city. The throne awaits everyone in the fortress of Lovrienac. There is also a staircase in Dubrovnik, from where the famous infamous procession of Cersei Lannister across the entire city began. Most of the Game of Thrones locations are located in the Old Town, the most interesting places of which I have collected in this guide.
