Our main base is in Palairos, just a few miles south-east of Lefkas Canal facing Scorpios Island.
It is a charming Greek fishing harbour with a rich history going back to the Mycenaean period (2000 B.C.).
There is a lot to discover: several caves, a fortress from the 5th century, a salt lake leftover from Homer's time which was the saviour of Queen Cleopatra during the battle of Action – even Odysseus' "Ithaka" has been claimed to be located in the area near Palairos (by the German researcher Dorpfeld).
It is the perfect place to start and finish your holiday with a beautiful sandy beach just a few steps away from your boat! For the very best Greek flotilla and bareboat sailing holidays in the Ionian Islands including Lefkas, Cephalonia, Ithaka & Zakinthos choose Odysseus Sailing Holidays.
