The French Riviera is one of our most successful and sought after yacht charter destinations. With relatively short cruising between each town, you really can embrace and experience the very best that the French Riviera has to offer. From the luxury hotspots of Monaco, Cannes and Saint Tropez to the hidden gems of Villefranche and the Porquerolles, we’re sure that wherever you visit on the Côte d’Azur you’re going to have an amazing time.
What better place to start your luxury yacht charter than in Cannes, meeting your crew and stepping on board your luxury motor yacht for the first time at noon. Once you're settled in, go for a walk around the lavish boutiques of La Croisette and the old cobbled streets of Le Suquet. Enjoy a late lunch at Bâoli Beach and soak up the Riviera lifestyle. We highly recommend staying in Cannes as night falls, as the evening buzz throughout the summer months is truly spectacular. Get your dates right and you will be able to enjoy the famous summer firework display from your yacht in the bay of Cannes, which really is spectacular!
Leaving the port at Cannes, it's just over an hour to the famous Saint Tropez beach clubs. This is a fantastic opportunity to try out some of the water toys on board your motor yacht, as well as enjoying the brilliant scenery at coastal towns such as Mandelieu-La-Napoule and Théoule sur Mer en route. Pampelonne Beach is home to many famous restaurants and bustling bars - with Nikki Beach and Club 55 coming in as our personal favourites. Spend the night in the port of Saint Tropez and soak up the atmosphere with an aperitif at Sénéquier and dinner at Dior Des Lices.
The Porquerolles Islands, located just a little way down the coast from Saint Tropez, provide some of the most unspoiled views of the French Riviera's natural beauty. Drop anchor in one of the island's tranquil bays for a day of music, relaxation and water sports. In the evening enjoy a delicious meal prepared by your crew in the most beautiful of settings or, alternatively, take the tender ashore to dine at ‘Le Mas de Langoustier’, in either of the Michelin starred restaurants, ‘L’
After breakfast, cruise East to Les Îles de Lérins, located very close to Cannes but a world away from the buzz of the town. The islands are steeped in history and have been home to a monastic community since the 5th century. Stop at La Guérite for a sublime lunch before taking your motor yacht between the islands to soak up the stunning scenery and tranquil turquoise waters. Your star lit dinner enjoyed al fresco on your yacht will be one you won't forget.
Villefranche is a quaint seaside town just east of Cannes and the Lérins Islands. During the day, go for a walk around the boutique shops and enjoy the general radiance of the area. For lunch and the afternoon we recommend visiting nearby St Jean-Cap-Ferrat, where the delicious food of Paloma beach awaits. After eating, enjoy a cultural visit to the Villa Ephrusi de Rothschild just before your cruise to Monaco. Stay here overnight so you can make the most of your sixth day on the Riviera.
Monaco is without doubt one of the most desirable destinations in the world, so we've added it straight into your itinerary. After a freshly prepared breakfast take a stroll up to the Prince's Palace and the nearby Oceanographic Museum which is perfect for family charters with young children. If you're looking for retail therapy, the selection of boutiques surrounding Casino Square is exceptional. Enjoy lunch in the Café de Paris and follow the Monaco Formula 1 track down the hill back to your yacht. After changing for dinner, you're spoilt for choice in terms of restaurants. Head for pre-dinner drinks at Buddha Bar, enjoy the finest Japonese cuisine at Nobu and dance the night away at Jimmy'z or TWIGA.
As the bright lights and towering hills of Monaco disappear into the distance, your crew will take you on the relaxing voyage to Nice. With this being the last day of your charter, we highly recommend making the most of your luxury motor yacht before disembarking with one last whiz on the wakeboard, a delicious meal and, of course, a glass of bubbly.
