Life on board Florette looks a bit like this…
Enjoy a refreshing morning swim in the sea before settling down for a healthy German-style breakfast before discussing the daily plan over coffee.
The rig and sailing experience of Florette attracts guests to get involved with an “all hands on deck” approach but the crew also encourage guests to simply relax on the sundeck if that’s what takes their fancy.
On a popular week sailing, there is a combination of sailing and island hopping. The seven attractive volcanic Aeolian Islands form a beautiful archipelago and UNESCO world heritage site with over 5000 years of history. Hikers, snorkelers, kayakers, bathing enthusiasts, food lovers and people interested in cultural history are in for a real treat.
Visit the Museo Archeological in Lipari; hike Vulcano for breathtaking views and relax your tired muscles in the therapeutic sulfur baths; enjoy local food and wine tasting in Salina; rub shoulders with the rich and famous in Panarea, and hike Stromboli which is the most active volcano in Europe.
Florette also has sea kayaks, SUPS, snorkelling gear and for the less active a hammock or fishing gear.
Nicole prepares meals using local fresh ingredients, seasonal produce and local fish which easily turns into excellent healthy Mediterranean dishes. Breakfast every day and six meals are included in your ticket price. Lunch can be eaten ashore at guests expense to ensure you experience the beautiful cuisine of the local area.
Stay cool during the summer months or cosy up in the fall in your simple cabin. Or grab your sleeping bag and sleep under the stars. We spend most of our week at anchor in peaceful bays or in front of small fishing villages. You will find yourself surrounded by the peace of the sea and nature.
