Charter a superyacht in the South of France and cruise charming Cannes or sexy St Tropez. After all, there’s no better destination to drop anchor to indulge in a luxury lifestyle than in the jewel of the Mediterranean.
Warm iridescent waters, fine white sands and some of the most revered coastal locales in the world, the French Riviera is an opulent lifestyle paradise and the undisputed epicentre of luxury yachting and superyachts in Europe.
With its unrivalled, extravagant beauty and strong cultural heritage, the French Riviera plays host to the world’s rich and famous, offering the very best lifestyle both on and off of the water. Master the art of luxury living with world-class art, architecture and gastronomic delights whilst enjoying the serenity the region has to offer. Scattered with the finest vineyards, picture-perfect rolling landscapes and most breath-taking of all, the dazzling blue Mediterranean stretching as far as the eye can see.
Revel in life’s little pleasures by taking long, lazy lunches, or enjoying champagne with a view, or shopping in boutiques along quaint cobblestone streets. Let the crystal clear water lap at your feet along the beautiful Provence Coast, in stunning resorts like Saint-Tropez, Saint-Raphaël, Cannes, Juan-les-Pins and Nice.
Start your South of France charter sailing east to the opulent Principality of Monaco. The ‘capital of luxury’ is one of the few places on earth where guests can float between Cartier, Chanel and Chopard in a matter of minutes. Take a spin at Monte Carlo’s fabled casino or indulge at Alain Ducasse’s Le Louis XV, the region’s only triple Michelin-starred restaurant. Other must-visit Monegasque institutions include Jimmy’s, Nobu, Cipriani and Sass Café.
Spend day and night in the calmer shores of Beaulier-Sur-Mer and Villefranche-Sur-Mer. Reminisce the glamour of the fifties with lunch at La Reserve, once frequented by iconic stars Rita Hayworth, Edith Piaf and Frank Sinatra. Spend the afternoon on the water paddleboarding in the scenic bay before heading to the Palm Anjuna for dinner and live music.
Next on to St Tropez. By day, A-listers congregate on L’Opera Palmier and Club 55 for Jerobaums of champagne-fuelled fun. Come nightfall, a sunset flotilla moves the party back to town. Experience the vibrant nightlife in full swing at iconic clubs like Les Caves du Roy and VIP Room.
Lunch in Porquerolles after a cruise to Cannes. The largest of the Iles d’Or islands, sun-dappled Ile de Porquerolles sits midway between Marseille and Cannes. Dock here for lunch at Le Mas Eucalyptus where local crisp organic Vermentino white is an essential try. After lunch, on to Cannes. From La Croisette’s seaside promenade to the red carpet of the Palais des Festivals, Cannes is as gorgeous as it is glamorous.
Ile Sainte Marguerite
Cruise to The Iles de Lérins just off the Cannes coastline. These two state-protected private islands make an ideal antidote to Cannes’ summertime bustle. Best is the channel midway between the two islands where sailboats drop anchor offering the perfect dive spots for visitors to dive into the deep clear waters. Head back to Cannes in the evening to dance until dawn at model-magnet Le Baoli, a club-restaurant located in Cannes’ Port Cano.
Drop anchor off the Cap d’Antibes, a chichi peninsula that’s been home to the Riviera elite for a century. The Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc is the most exclusive dinner address, where head chef Arnaud Poëtte will conjure up the finest Mediterranean cuisine, with chilled crustaceans being the speciality. Finish your South of France yacht charter the following morning at 12:00 noon in St Laurent du Var, with a transfer to the airport
