I am so delighted to introduce you to the latest product Bella Vita Travels has to offer! We are calling it our FAMILY SAILING ADVENTURE which takes place over the course of one week in either the Aeolian Islands (off Sicily) or the Sporades in Greece.
It is a brand new way to experience a “holiday-at-sea”. Family Sailing is the first ALL-INCLUSIVE sailboat cruise for families that want to get the most out of every second of their holiday. We like to think of it as two holidays in one!
The adventure includes bespoke services ensuring complete relaxation for adults. And for little ones, engaging educational activities that teach them about life at sea, while having non-stop fun on a kid’s dedicated sailboat. We know that each member of your family has different needs, Family Sailing takes care of everyone individually, as we know each traveler deserves an unforgettable holiday.
A FLOATING BOUTIQUE HOTEL
The boats have been designed like boutique hotels, down to the very last detail! Carefully selected Italian-design choice linens and tableware provide a touch of elegance to every setting. even sun-creams, hats and sarongs (for the young, and the young-at-heart) await you upon arrival.
There is also a sailboat entirely equipped for kids, where guests aged 5-14 years can meet every day to have fun, sail, and enjoy scrumptious meals together. A jam-packed daily activities programme: sailing lessons, sport, games, diving competitions, exploring mysterious places, and treasure-hunts, is alternated with moments of pure relaxation – playing board games, riddles, and stories. All of this under the watchful and attentive eyes of exclusively dedicated staff members, from early morning until after sunset.
While the kids are having the time of their lives, the adults can sit back, enjoy the sun, sea and wonderful meals or even do a bit of exploring on land. And yes, there are plenty of water activities for the adults as well (see below)!
The captain in charge has extensive knowledge of the voyage itinerary, and perfectly combines twenty years of sailing experience with the professionalism of a lifestyle hotel manager at the best boutique hotels. Aboard each boat, a skipper and a hostess will guide you to the most spectacular bays, and pamper you daily with healthy and delicious meals. “Animators” keep the younger guests of the fleet happily entertained, while the captain teaches them all about sailing, reading the wind, and manoeuvring the sails and rudder on their dedicated sailboat.
Plenty of them from dawn to midnight! Along wild and fascinating coastlines, we find only the best beaches to set up luxurious buffet lunches, complete with design sunshades, and giant beanbags from our outdoor collection, which have been specifically designed for you to indulge in the perfect luxury beach-picnic!
Keep active with water sports such as water skiing, canoeing and banana boat rides at a well-equipped center, located in a small bay. Otherwise enjoy the liberating feeling of snorkelling, stand up paddle boarding, sea-scooters, and fishing in breath taking natural bays, or sail a short crossing, with the salty breeze and the waves as your only companions. Aperitifs at sunset, in the company of exotic marine life. Enjoy solitary coves, and star-filled roadstead nights.
