Villa Gabriella’s fabulous views across the Ionian mean that you’re just a short drive from some fantastic sailing. Known for their consistent winds, the waters off the east coast of Lefkada a great opportunity to learn to sail. Or, enjoy a relaxing day on the water with a skippered charter (a great way to find some of the best spots) or, for the suitably qualified, organise a bareboat yacht charter.
You’ll find a number of operators on the east coast of the island from Lefkas Town to Vassiliki who can assist with your arrangements. Of course Lilias, Villa Gabriella’s massively knowledgable manager, will be pleased to help you make the best plan for your holiday.
A typical day might start between 9.00 and 10.00 a.m. The drop anchor in one of the beautiful bays along the coastline – many with beaches only accessible by boat – for a mid-morning swim. It’s not uncommon to find you have the entire bay to yourselves so you can experience real privacy and solitude.
After a swim you might head for a quayside Taverna lunch, perhaps on Meganisi, before enjoying the best sailing winds in the afternoon. You’ll usually be back in port at around 6:00 to 6:30 p.m. having experienced more of the beautiful Ionian and the pleasures of sailing.
However you choose your day or two sailing it’s another of the great opportunities offered when you rent the luxury of Villa Gabriella.
