A coastline full of world famous destinations, the French Riviera or « Cote d’Azur » is one of the best yacht charter destinations in the world.
The French Mediterranean is one of the world’s most visited charter destinations, for many well-deserved reasons. The climate is sublime, the landscape stunning, and the stops offer everything from tranquil islands to « flash » destinations such as St Tropez, Monaco and Cannes. It all sums up to a perfect destination for an unforgettable yachting holiday.
During the charter season, which extends from April to October, the wind rarely is too strong, the sea is generally quiet, the tides and currents are mostly negligible, the ports are numerous and the destinations interesting and world renowned. There is good reason why many of the most famous painters, including Picasso and Cezanne, chose this area to live – it’s stunning!
The region offers almost too much choice for a one week holiday. Do you want to walk the Cannes Croisette in the footsteps of movie stars, take a spot on the beach in trendy St Tropez along side numerous celebrities, walk the old port of Nice and hit the casino in stunning Monaco, or are you looking for the quiet yachting in beautiful areas such as the Porquerolles or Lerins Islands, the Esterel Cliffs, and the beautiful seaside towns such as Villefranche and Eze-sur-Mer. Or see the villa’d splendor of the famous « Caps » of Antibes, Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, and d’Ail. The French Riviera is also the perfect starting point for an extended Mediterranean cruise, that can include Corsica, Sardinia, the Ligurian and Tuscan Italian coast, or over to Barcelona, Majorca and Ibiza in Spain. Decisions, decisions!
