Is Greece the next Gulet Charter capital?
It is a true story that for the last decades Turkey has been the only destination where clients looking to experience their gulet charter holidays traveled to. Turkey has been the birth place of gulets as the main destination where gulets were being built and with a rich coastline people used to enjoy there gulet holidays.
But has these changed over the past years?
The answer is simply yes it has! People over the last years started to look for alterative destinations to charter a gulet, as travelling on the same destination started becoming boring and dull. This is the moment where Greece slowly slowly started to be on the spotlight due to its reach coastline, the numerous Greek islands and the breathtaking scenery. Traditional Greek villages, rich archeological history, welcoming locals and most of all pristine bays and coves, made Greece the place to be when you charter a gulet. With multiple destinations within Greece, due to its diverse geographical areas, you have a vast number of alternative cruising areas to choose from. Starting from the west side, where Ionian islands are scattered with their calm waters, green landscapes and vibrant villages, moving forward to Athens area around Saronic gulf, or going up to Sporades with Skiathos and the rest mama-mia islands. it is just a matter of personal preference to decide.
