Charter a Yacht on the French Riviera and Experience the Thrill of the Yachting Epicentre

An average of 90% of all the super yachts in the world will visit the Riviera at least once. A visit to the yachting ports of St Tropez, Cannes, Antibes or Monaco in busy season opens the eyes to some of the most impressive yachts in the world. The Riviera coastline offers 600 miles of yachting splendour. The French Riviera charter yacht season normally kicks off in April and runs through to the end of October. The months of July and August are hot and busy with tourists, with generally light winds and great yachting conditions. The choice of ports are extensive, the history and varied destinations to visit are interesting and famous worldwide. The Cote d’Azur offers plenty of choice for a yacht holiday. Some of the quieter yachting destinations include the Porquerolles, Lerins Islands, Esteral cliffs and the pretty seaside fishing villages of Villefranche sur Mer and Eze. Cannes offers glitz, glamour and movie stars, and Monaco is a playground for the wealthy with a visit to the Casino not to be missed. The closest airport to access yachts on the French Riviera is Nice Cote d’Azur, the third biggest airport in France with airlines offering a mix of year round and seasonal flights. Nice airport is about 25 minutes to the Port of Monaco, 20 minutes to Antibes port and 30 minutes to Cannes port. Private helicopters can be organised to fly guests directly to their chosen destination or right on board their yacht. The Riviera became a popular tourist and boating destination at the end of the 18th century, when it became a popular health resort for the British upper class. The Riviera remains today on the list of top places to visit and charter a yacht.
