Hotels & Villas
Valef Yachts works closely with the best hotels and villas in and around Athens and the islands. Whether the requirement is for accommodations in the center of Athens with Acropolis views, or one removed from the city along the seaside or in any island, it can easily be booked and managed by Valef Yachts, no matter what the budget and taste in décor and style.
PRIVATE LAND & AIR TRANSPORTATION
Private VIP transportation can be easily arranged for any size group as well as personal tours and multi-lingual guides to help enlighten guests to the wonders of the Hellenic culture, history, sites and antiquities. For those wanting stand-by car-driver service for personal use, chauffeured cars and limousines can be arranged. Private air service is designed with optimum convenience in mind; chartering a helicopter, jet or small plane, allows guests flexibility and freedom, or even for aerial tours. Valef uses an executive air charter company that specializes in providing high quality corporate and VIP air transport service, covering a wide range of destinations worldwide with competitive rates. All aircrafts are immaculately maintained and have certified and well-trained personnel. With a 24 hour hotline Valef and its air partners are always alert to meet the strictest requirements and needs of the ever-demanding client.

In English the word is “pampered”. We loved it. Again, this is the reason we give you our highest recommendation.

My companions and I achieved this glorious state of free-floating delight last May by setting out from Athens’ harbor at Piraeus in a seventy-seven foot motor sailer, rented though Valef Yachts….
