Top 4 ways to end your season in the French Riviera

Top 4 ways to end your season in the French Riviera

3 of 4 3/4

For some peace and quiet

Head west along Côte d’Azur

If you are looking to wind down after the excitements of the the summer then you can ditch the hustle and bustle of Monaco for a leisurely five-day cruise to the western side of the Côte d’Azur.


The first stop is Èze-sur-Mer, a medieval town perched atop a rocky peak. The ocean views from its upper reaches are a calming pleasure — although they are even better with haute cuisine from one of the top restaurants in the French Riviera, the two-Michelin-star La Chèvre d’Or.

Hotel Majestic Barriere

In the morning continue to Cannes, leave your superyacht and visit the spa at the Hotel Majestic Barriere to revive yourself from your wild nights in Monaco. Considered to be one of the best spas in the Mediterranean, it has four treatment rooms, a pedicure-manicure room, a hairdressing space, a sauna, a hammam, an "experience course" (for multi-sensory stimulation), and a relaxation room.

Îles d’Hyères

Cruise overnight on your superyacht and the next day drop anchor among the Îles d’Hyères to spend time on the Notre Dame beach which offers white sand fringed with pine and eucalyptus trees. It is a favourite destination for superyachts as it is a 50-minute walk or 20-minute cycle ride from the port.


For a little more action — just a little more — continue west the next day to the pretty fishing town of Sanary-sur-Mer, with palm-treed promenade and a selection of neat little beaches, the pick of which is Portissol. The surrounding woodlands, olive groves and fields also offer a romantic stroll.


For true peace there’s little to rival the final superyacht stop, the delta of briny lagoons and sandbars at Camargue. Explore by foot or bicycle to meet the bountiful wildlife, including semi-wild Camargue horses and flamingos. Back aboard, fall asleep to the sound of crickets and absolutely nothing else.This itinerary is guaranteed to leave you feeling revitalised and ready for the Caribbean season.
