Skorpios is mainly known as the private island of the late Greek shipping billionaire Aristotle Onassis. It was the site of his wedding to former United States First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy on October 20, 1968. Upon his death it passed to his daughter Christina, and then in turn to her daughter Athina Onassis Roussel, the only surviving heir. In April 2013 through her trust, Ekaterina Rybolovleva, the 24 year-old daughter of Dmitry Rybolovlev, bought a group of companies from the 28 year-old Greek heiress Athina Onassis Roussel. The assets included a long term lease to the Greek island of Skorpios and its smaller islet, Sparti. Beginning in October 2018 and with a completion date of 2020, Rybolovleva began developing a 10,000 square metres (110,000 sq ft) luxury resort on Skorpios for a total investment estimated at €184 million. The island is a Natura with no more than 5% of its area to be developed. Sparti island Sparti is an uninhabited island, right next to Skorpios, across the village of Perigiali, about 3km from Nydri port, Lefkada island. Since the Ottoman Empire, it belonged to a French family who sold it just before 20th century to two Greek families. A century later, Sparti was sold to Aristotle Onassis, in order to turn it into a second Skorpios for his beloved son, Alexander. However, Alexander was killed in an accident with his helicopter, which marked the beginning of Aristotle’s end. For years, Sparti was abandoned, covered with olive trees and the foundations of the buildings that were supposed to be built. It is also owned by Ekaterina Rybolovleva and rumor has it that after the investment in Skorpios, it will be Sparti’s turn for a luxurious makeover. Vathi – Meganisi island Vathi is one of the main villages in Meganisi. It is located on the northeast coast of the island, at the end of an inlet. Vathi hosts a charming harbour with deep blue waters where fishing and sailing activities are conducted safely. The quay filled with a large number of boats during the summer season presents a captivating panoramic view of the village. The village is quite picturesque with a maze of whitewashed houses and alleys and there are a few churches facing the sea. There are a number of taverns and restaurants offering delicious local food. The locals in the village are involved in agricultural activities with a vast area of olive groves to cultivate. People are also involved in livestock farming, while sheep and goat milk are widely used on the island. Here you can see the remains of windmills, just the round stone-built body that stand proudly on the hilltops and capes. What To Expect Onboard: “Ionion 5” – is the “couple’s boat”.
