By Land & Sea | The Mediterranean à deux

The stunningly designed 38-metre schooner, Alexa J, has been meticulously restored with romance and adventure in equal measure. Setting sail around the Mediterranean for the first time in July – whether you want to step back in time to explore ancient ruins, discover hidden coves to have all to yourself, or enjoy Sicilian wines with an award-winning viticulturist on the slopes of Mount Etna – we can craft an itinerary to suit. Accompanied by an incredibly experienced crew with lesser-known locations to discover, there is no better way to explore the Mediterranean this summer.

To complete your journey, arguably the best hotel in Europe awaits: Aman Sveti Stefan. Balancing rustic charm with luxurious flair, Sveti Stefan is located on its own private islet once a 15th-century fishing village. Here you are perfectly positioned to explore Montenegro's coast, home to a series of ancient towns dotted along the Adriatic Sea.

Need to know: Alexa J will set sail from July 2018 to selected regions of the Mediterranean
