  • 18 – 25 October, 2022 OMBRE BLU3 – What a wonderful boat! We are so lucky to be able to join the crew again. The weather in mid October could not have been more perfect. Flat water, clear and full of sea life from Dolphins to Star Fish. Walking up to the sulphur smoking crater on Vulcano was out of a Sci-Fi film – unbelievable. Stromboli by night, spitting angry lava and glowing like a beacon was a site and a gift to cherish. The walk across Panarea was a mixture of the lush Napali Coast in Kauai and the rugged jagged Arizona Desert, such an exciting and challenging, enjoyable adventure hike. We watched so many beautiful sunsets over local wines and scrumptious food. Cookbook please! You must share your food secrets. We loved the quiet coves and tine bays full of caves and beaches. We just had an amazing trip. Even the odd appearance of a Jellyfish was a magical wonder to snorkle around and view safely. Cannot thank you all enough – Francesco, Melissa, Marlowe & Arfel you gave us a fantastic experience. Thank you sincerely Amy & Rocco

  • 2 – 9 October Melissa, Francesco, Marlowe & Arfel Thank you to the entire crew for creating another amazing trip on your boat. For six years, we had wanted to come back for the delicious food, exceptional service and memories to last a lifetime. Up next… we need to decide on Greece or Sicily?! Cheers to an incredible charter and tons of non-alcoholic wine! Lyndsay & Neil Lyndsey & Bil

  • 22 – 29 September, 2022 Dear Melissa & Francesco Once again, we had a wonderful time with you and the crew of Ombre Blu3. Despite having some rainy days, you helped us make the best of those with the wine cave and the archaeological visits. Those will be some of our best memories. Hiking the ‘Walk of the Gods’ was outstanding. As always, the food and drinks were outstanding. We go away now with the knowledge that some weight reduction efforts are in our future :))) Thank you very much for giving us a memorable experience!! Eric

  • 13 – 20 September, 2022 Capri – Amalfi – Positano – Ischia – Procida Dearest Francesco, Melissa, Marlowe & Arfel, Last year we sailed the Ionian Islands (Greece) with you and before our trip was over we signed up for another – we could not pass up the opportunity to experience the Amalfi Coast with you. This week has been our dream for 20 years and you did not disappoint us. Coming for the second time was like coming home, so comfortable; Francesco’s amazing cooking, Melissa’s gracious warm hosting, breakfast making, wine pouring, table setting wonderfulness! Marlowe, Marlowe, Marlowe – you are always smiling, working so hard to make everything perfect and beautiful. Arfel you are an angel – working  steadfast, making all the preparations – always with a smile and a heart full of kindness – chop, chop, chop.

Grazie mille xoxo Alex & Zarrell Indianapolis, IN

  • 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.

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
