The French Riviera and Monaco are blessed with the climate, scenery and culture that ensure it remains the destination of choice for so many. . . Monaco, St Tropez, Cannes, Antibes, Cap Ferrat, Villefranche, . . . all are within two hours of each other by boat and quite rightly conjure up images of the glitz and glamour that is synonymous with the super-yacht capital of the world.

The Cote d’Azur shimmers with glamour, rich colors, parties and fun. With a breathtakingly beautiful coastline and vibrant social life ashore, chartering an amazing, luxury yacht here really brings the sparkle back into life. This is designer yachting for the jet set.

What do the names Monte Carlo, Cannes, Nice, Cap d’Antibes, Cap Ferrat and St Tropez conjure up? Celebrities – ‘yes, they all come here’. Artists – Cezanne, Picasso, Matisse and Chagalle all lived here. Film stars live here and Cannes Film Festivals is staged here. Formula 1 is raced in Monaco and the sleekest Classic Yacht Regattas draw the crowds here. Steep hillsides give way to sapphire waters and legendary towns. One can see why those with any eye for beauty have long fallen in love with The Riviera.

But look beyond the jet-set lifestyle for which this part of the Med is renowned, and the more curious visitor will find a world of secluded beaches and dramatic mountain skylines – many of which are only accessible by – and certainly only truly appreciated – when viewed from the deck of a private yacht.

Browze through the Itinerary below and get a drift of the charter moods.

Sample Itinerary

Day 1

Antibes – the biggest mega yacht, super yacht marina of them all.

Day 2

ST TROPEZ SHIMMER

Saint Tropez is still impossibly chic. The port, like a film set, is rimmed with elegantly striking yachts while the café’s facing them are filled with people meeting and chatter. What better place to sit and view ‘le monde’ than looking down from the balcony of the Café de Paris? And what better place to be viewed than sitting on the aft deck of your yacht in the port? With a strong art culture, some ‘must-go’ nightclubs, boules in the square and a castle above, St Trop’ is a heady mix.

We have specialist links in Monaco, Antibes and St Tropez for organizing private parties, special events and weddings.

 

Day 3

JET SET ESCAPE

But look beyond the jet-set lifestyle for which this part of the Med is renowned, and the more curious visitor will find a world of secluded beaches and dramatic mountain skylines – many of which are only accessible by – and certainly only truly appreciated – when viewed from the deck of a private yacht.
With so much to enjoy ashore, you may want to balance this with some ‘time out’. Clear bays with shimmering, iridescent water beckon. Swimming, Jetskis and water skis are there for the energetic and lazing in the Jacuzzi is reserved for those who like to ‘observe’. Look forward to an exhilarating sail or power your motor yacht across to the next port, taking in the breathtaking scenery as you go. And… go on… enjoy the envious looks as your elegant yacht pulls into port – everyone wants to know who you are! For real escape, wind down to the unspoiled Porquerolles Islands, for fabulous diving, a touch of salt and sand and the taste of freedom.
