A fusion of stone, Cyclades Archipelagosunlight and sparkling sea, the Cyclades Archipelago lie to the east of the Peloponnese and south-east of the coast of Attica; they stretch as far as Samos and Ikaria to the east, and are bounded to the south by the Cretan Sea. The Cyclades Islands have exercised a powerful charm since ancient times, even though access to them was not particularly easy. All Cycladic Islands share some distinctive features, such as the renowned Cycladic architecture, narrow cobblestone alleyways, fascinating archaeological, historical, religious and natural sights, quaint seaside and mountain villages and endless beaches. Each island though has several specific characteristics that make it stand out from the rest, making the islands absolutely unique, each in its own way. The Cyclades gather approximately the 60% of the tourists coming to Greece each year and Cyclades Archipelago is one of the best destination route for luxury motor yacht charters or romantic sailing yacht charters among the Greek islands.

Cyclades Archipelago It is not Difficult to understand why: The diverse outlines of the islands as they protrude from the blue waters of the Aegean, bathed in the dazzling sunlight and embellished with little white houses, resemble, in the words of the Nobel Prize-winning poet Odysseas Elytis "...stone horses with rampant manes...". Above all, the people who live here, with their own individual approach to the world, bring to life the narrow alleyways of the villages and the pathways of the countryside, the countless tiny chapels, the windmills, the dovecotes or the wind-beaten hillsides, and are themselves a basic feature of the charm which these possess. Some of the islands of the Cyclades Archipelago are globally well-known as international 'jet-set' destinations, while others remain still barely explored on the tourist scene. Maybe this is the reason to visit them. No matter how you see it, they make ideal sailing holiday destinations for visitors with all kinds of tastes.
