There are 4 spacious suites, each has a double bed and also a sofa bed which can sleep 2 extra people. All suites have TV, air-conditioning, kitchen, refrigerator and balcony.
This venue is highly recommended by our friends and guests over the past 4 years, Martin and Dorothy McClure. After their first visit by Lugger, they have returned each summer for 2 weeks, then they would sail down and return to Vliho by Lugger at the end of their charter. From 2017 we have the Lugger moored at Frikes for our crews to join after arriving at Nidri from the airport. This holiday package has become very popular with those who have sailed extensively in years gone by in the Lefkada area, and are now looking for a new challenge, getting away from the flotilla yachts and finding a little more wind in the area of Kephalonia.
It commences at the Gialos Taverna, Geni having just travelled down from Preveza by our private taxi. Here you will find a lunchtime Meza and drinks with Phil and his team, all to settle you into a more relaxed mood and ready for your holiday.
The rib, Warrior Spirit , will get you across to the Nidri port for the mid afternoon ferry, once aboard you can enjoy the wonderful trip south through the Meganissi channel to then leave the southern tip of Lefkada and strike out for the mountains in the distance of Kephalonia. Ithaca is the small easterly island, very rugged and the setting for Homer’s Odyssey, with legends and history around each corner.
On arrival at the small port of Frikes, just 100m along the harbour you will find the Frikes Bay Suite and a big welcome from Peter and his staff. Your Lugger will be waiting on the mooring, a small jetty off the beach and the following morning Phil with his team will be down to guide you through the relevant points of the Lugger and the area.
It is a wonderful area to be for 2 weeks, good local taverns in the village, with fresh catches of fish coming in daily, good to medium winds which for the interested sailors will be exciting, and so many places to drop anchor and swim. There are guided walks around the hills and lanes 2 evenings a week, all ending with wine tasting and local food. This along with your apartment at Frikes Bay Suite and the help and service from Peter and his staff will make it a memorable holiday.
