Whether you are enjoying the French Riviera as part of a luxury yacht charter or on your own private yacht the area has long been associated with the finer things in life. In fact according to the Côte d’Azur Economic Development Agency in one year alone this fine French area hosts 50% of the world’s superyacht fleet with at least 90% visiting the region at least once in their lives.
From the trendy clubs of Saint-Tropez to the sheltered coves of Illes d’Hyeres, this seven day itinerary takes you west and away from Cannes and Monaco. Enjoy the laid back life of lazy French days as you sail along the Mediterranean Sea.
Day 1: Live the highlife in Saint-Tropez
Fly into Nice, and get a helicopter shuttle across to St Tropez where you will meet your yacht. Once you’ve settled on board, go out for a stroll around this iconic port on the Cote d’Azur. Despite the fact that Saint-Tropez is heaving with visitors for much of the year, the town still retains that "je ne sais quoi" that makes it popular with the glitterati and the day-trippers alike.
To make your day in Saint-Tropez complete, book a table at Résidence de la Pinède on the Plage de la Bouillabaisse. This fabulous gourmet eatery is one of top restaurants in the French Riviera and boasts two Michelin stars, so reservations need to be made some way in advance. A pleasant stroll back to the yacht and a night on the aft deck should round off the day nicely. Alternatively Saint-Tropez is one of the top Mediterranean party destinations if you want to start your holiday with a bang.
