  • Dear Francesco and Melissa A million thanks for a wonderful week on the Ombre Blu for our friends and for us. The boat is beautiful and comfortable. The itinerary was thoughtful and adventurous.

  • 16 June – 1 July, 2022 John, Principessa Cristina, Vic & Charlie Kalamata-Methoni-Pylos-Katakolo (Olympia)-Zakynthos-Kefalonia-Ithaca-Nydri-Preveza-Parga-Antipaxos-Paxos-Sivota-Corfu. Thank you, thank you, thank you! What a beautiful adventure. Ombre Blu Crew have all been their usual delightful, helpful, gastronomically super-talented and enthusiastic selves. We’ve been blown-away by the beauty of the Ionian Islands. I will never forget close encounters with a beautiful old Sea Turtle & happy Dolphins on the way to Corfu. Not sure how I’ll cope with not being able to jump into the clear blue sea after an amazing lunch when I go back to reality. Thanks for all the joy! xxx  

  • Dear Melissa, Francesco, Arfel & Marlowe WOW – what a wonderful experience. It was everything we hoped for & more. The personal chemistry & cheerful attitudes of all made every day & every experience a delight. The food – every bit was savored – we will never eat so well until we return. Our lack of planning and your knowledge of the islands was a perfect fit. You met our every need – thank you! This was a family trip of a life time – we are so grateful to spend a week together enjoying the culture, sun, sailing, laughter & fine food!

    Dear Melissa & Francesco As I sit here on our last day with you on the Ombre Blu Blu3, I find myself already counting the days until we join you again off the coast of Sicily. I am actively working on Lee and Joy to move our trip up a full year 🙂 Tracy and I had the time of our lives with your team and couldn’t have better things to say about how well we were all taken care of. The cooking was completely amazing. Francesco is a total wizard! I honestly can’t say enough about how amazing the food was. The boat is amazing as well. Such an immaculately maintained and beautiful vessel she is. We can’t wait to come back and see her. Melissa – you were simply the best! Our experience with you on the boat and on our excursions was fantastic. You took the best care of us possible and we appreciate it from the bottom of our hearts. Best of luck for the ’22 season – can’t wait to see you again! Best Neil & Tracy Hilton Head Island, SC USA  

  • 15th May, 2022 Dear Melissa & Francesco Our second adventure with you and long overdue! We love the Ombre Blu3 and you two and your staff. Marlowe & Arfel. The food and the beverages NEVER disappoint but what’s even better…. are all of our time together and friendships – life is about experiences and fun shared ones are what we all need more of especially after a 2+ year pause due to the pandemic. We can’t wait to book again & to enjoy our next adventure. Joy & Lee

  • Dearest Melissa and Francesco Thank you for a truly magical week! We’ve enjoyed every minute. Francesco’s food was incredible! We will be trying our best to recreate some of his dishes when we return home. Marlowe’s smile every morning and the way he kept the boat spotlessly clean – simply amazing. Melissa was the perfect host, filling our glasses with the most incredible local wines. The professionalism, warmth and attentiveness of all the crew has left us wanting to return – probably again and again and again. Much love The Ainfields
