You will have to fly in on Olbia airport (Sardinia). From here you can either take a taxi (10 min) or bus (20 min) to Olbia Marina. If you wish, we can arrange a taxi for you, as they are hard to get during high season.
After embarkation in Marina Olbia we are heading to our first destination: the beautiful bay of Porto San Paolo.
We will be leaving early in the morning to visit the smallest kingdom in the world; The kingdom of Tavolara. Enjoy a delicious breakfast at anchor, as you take in the stunning views of the island’s lagoon.

We are crossing the windy Strait of Bonifacio, which allows us to sail towards the French island of Corsica. The stunning white cliffs and a deep turquoise sea are breathtaking; it’s not hard to see why this island is also UNESCO-heritage.

This trip was hands down my favorite traveling experience! Vincent and Vallery were so welcoming and friendly; they have created a dream itinerary that had us swimming in the clearest, bluest waters and visiting the most charming little towns along the way. You really can’t beat the scenery! Val is an amazing chef, making delicious meals for us twice a day from fresh local Sardinian foods, and they had wonderful suggestions for dinner on the islands, making reservations when necessary. The boat is spacious and contains all you need for a comfortable stay, even at full capacity there is plenty of room for everyone to relax. It is the only boat trip I have been on, but I know it is a treat to have an entire boat and a small group as opposed to a ton of people on a cruise or tour boat! I highly suggest booking with Vincent and Val, as you will make amazing memories you won’t forget!
I loved the whole experience. The only thing I would change is the part where it was advised that it is customary for the guests to pay for the crews meals in the restaurants.
Listen to the tip about luggage. I took way too much in a suitcase which was far too big for the cabin and only wore half the clothes inside it.
This trip was nothing short of magical. From the carefully selected swim stops to the towns we visited for dinner and day excursions, Sailing 2 Wellness exceeded all expectations. Val and Vincent made me feel welcome, comfortable, and safe from the moment I stepped on the boat! Their wonderful expertise and planning made this sailing adventure something I’ll never forget! If you’re looking for a getaway where you can fully relax, recharge, and feel like royalty sailing around breathtaking islands in Italy and France, buy your ticket and book your flight now.
What an amazing adventure this was. From waking up in breathtaking lagunes, having the most amazing food cooked by Vallery during breakfast and lunch to sailing towards unimaginable sunsets. With an experienced captain like Vincent, you always feel safe under sail. This trip is for any kind of sailer, from beginner to expert, as Vincents takes you under his wings to learn a bit more about yacht life. Scraping this off my bucketlist and ended up booking again for next year!
Sailing 2 wellness was a mind blowing experience.
Sailing around the beautiful islands Sardinia and Corsica in combination with good food, yoga&meditation sessions are highly recommended.
Thanks again Vallery and Vincent for your great hospitality.
Hope to see you next year.
