Phil & Kate – you two are smooth operators! So calm and seemingly relaxed but running such a slick show!

Essentially lovely – the only way to see the Italian Riviera! Great sailing locations, swimming spots, generous hospitality and amazing food.

Outstanding holiday! Ticked all the boxes- sailing, food and memorable places…Thank you so much for treating us like family – our four children had a ball and our every request was catered for, we are sad to leave.

Thank you for giving us such a wonderful week – taking us to such beautiful places. Your professionalism and patience knows no bounds- nothing has been too much trouble.

What a fantastic experience! Thank you for introducing me to the magnificent French Riviera. Eze was a sight to behold and we loved Monaco and Menton.

Thank you so much for a truly wonderful holiday. A floating luxury hotel with 5 Star service. The food was ‘yummy and scrumptious’ – ‘Great being on millionaire’s row’. Your knowledge of the area and help and advice really made it easy making the best of sight-seeing. A fantastic holiday, nothing lacking, thanks again.

Thank you so much for a memorable introduction to sailing. It has exceeded our expectations. Your professionalism, skill and generosity have been a joy.

What a wonderful host and hostess, professional and fun. The cooking in particular was outstanding! We had a terrific time lazing about and being pandered to. Looking forward to the next time!

Thanks so much for making our honeymoon so special. We were treated like royalty all week. Thanks for arranging an itinerary that suited ourselves so well, we loved all the villages and islands and of course Cannes and Monaco.

These great few days will be an everlasting memory to us all – superb food and magnificent hosts.

The food was out of this world, the sailing was absolutely perfect for us and the company was always really wonderful.

Thank you very much for the wonderful time on the boat. It was so much fun and you both are the perfect hosts. The food was outstanding and just being on the boat with both of you was a real treat. It felt like staying with very special friends. We will be back!!!
