What a tremendous week we have had. It was even better than we dreamed it could be. The yacht was extremely comfortable, the food unbelievably good and the service and care of our crew is what made it so special.

Thank you Petros and Nikolina for giving us memories we will treasure for ever.

I’ve had an amazing time with a great bunch of people. Thank you so much to Nikolina who makes the most fantastic food!!! And looked after us so well.

Thanks to Christos as well for a great week’s sail through the Corinthian canal which was wonderful. The snorkelling in the tiny bays was brilliant and there was a lot of fun and laughter on the boat.

Thank you both for a brilliant week. Sailing, catering and service were 10/10. From our initial dealings with Thanos to our docking and return to Lefkada, everything exceeded our expectations. Best holiday ever and we were on our 30th wedding anniversary, so that says it all!

Thank you captain Petros and Nikolina for a wonderful holiday. We loved staying on your beautiful yacht, captain Petros and what can I say about the food Nikolina! Absolutely fantastic - amazing cocktails and fabulous cuisine!

To Nikolina and Christos,

Thank you so much for taking care of us for the week. We had a great time. We especially enjoyed sleeping in the bays and jumping off the boat . We loved using the paddle boards and hilariously falling off of them.

We still can’t get over how funny it was when the sardines flew into the dingy. The food was amazing and we will be missing your wonderful cooking and cocktails when we are home. We enjoyed the sailing and the relaxing times.

The boat Malena itself was so lovely and was ideal for the six of us. Overall you have made this holiday one to remember.

Thank you so much for this amazing experience,
