Dear Adriana, Dear Petros, 
During these two weeks, time flew and we went from beautiful discoveries to marvelous surprises in the Ionian Islands. Our first time on a sailing boat was a success and we appreciated the kindness of Adriana, her fantastic food, the availability of Petros, the chess night of Filippo and Petros and all the swimming moments of this holiday. For me all these times will accompany us during winter and will be great memories. A huge thank you and we wish you all the best –Anne

I loved the Malena boat and swimming in the bays. Thank you Petros and Adriana –Giacomo, Filippo 

The bays were fantastic, Adriana’s food also. I love living on a boat and going around with kayak. Thank you –Lisa

Thank you for the beautiful discoveries of a wonderful under water paradise! All the best –Matteo

Captain Lupo di Mare! Thank you very much for the hospitality, unluckily I spent just week on the fantastic Malena, next time I hope to stay almost the double. I was impressed by your ability (also playing cards, we forgot to play poker!) but also for your kindness and Adrianna too! I felt like being home (and a wonderful home!). Next time we’ll have to fish something! I’m sorry for my English, next time will be better! Thank you and I wish you and Adrianna all the best. –Lodo (the president!)

Lodovico has already said all what I think. You are really the Captain that everybody would like to have. Malena is a wonderful boat that brought us to beautiful places. Greece is a fantastic country and you, Captain, with Adrianna showed us the best part. Thank you for everything –Cecilia and Camille 

Petros and Adrianna, thank you so much for this wonderful week in South Ionian Islands. Everything was perfectly organized and impressed about Petros safe control on his beautiful (maintained with love!) 52’’, even with sharp wind it seems he’s parking a Fiat 500 in port! Have a wonderful summer –Stefano 

Really we had a great time together. Thank you a lot for everything. –Carlo, Maria, Giacomo, Marco

From the Cyclades (Santorini, Ios, Mykonos and Kythnos) to the Saronic bay – sailing through the most beautiful spots one only dreams of.
From the most delicious homemade meals by the very very talented Isadora to the most notable sailing from our very impressing Captain Peter.
We had the most amazing trip here in Greece and we can’t wait to do it again…
Malena is a beauty and we hope to see all again soon.
Thank you for a wonderful and unforgettable experience and the grand finale-an American style rodeo in Greece!

With much Love,
Andrew & Greta
