Guide to the French Riviera

Glittering, glamorous and effortlessly chic

One of the most high profile locations for yacht charter, the French Riviera is the ultimate destination to see and be seen. With spectacular coastlines, stunning beaches and exquisite cuisine, the French Riviera exudes sophistication, offering a variety of indulgent attractions which lures visitors back time and again.

The French Riviera reaches from the east of Marseille and extends eastwards to the Italian border. Although ever increasing as a glamorous charter vacation, particularly during the summer months, the French Riviera offers many charms making for a magical and opulent location for superyacht charter. From mouth-watering cuisine, gorgeous climates and beautiful scenic views, it is no wonder this destination is so appealing.

This renowned stretch of spectacular French coastline runs from Monaco down to the Iles d’Hyéres. The French Riviera encompasses famed locations such as Monaco, Nice, Cannes, Antibes and St Tropez. Although these celebrated destinations each have a unique charm, they all have beauty, glamour and sophistication in common. With steep hills surrounding beautiful coastlines and sun-kissed beaches, meander among the vineyards and pine woods against a backdrop of dramatic mountain views. Take a leisurely cruise around the magnificent fjords and enjoy alfresco dining from your superyacht as you admire the glittering allure of seaside villages. With opportunities for snorkeling, boutique shopping or people watching with a coffee, the French Riviera is laced with an unparalleled taste of the high life. Whether you’re looking to see and be seen or enjoy some privacy in one of the tranquil anchorages, there is something for everyone in this picture perfect destination.

Once a quaint fishing village, tucked in the secluded coastline, St Tropez is now a must visit on any yacht charter to the French Riviera. This charming and atmospheric location is fabulous for star spotting, roaming around designer boutiques and sampling coffee and pastries from the wealth of patisseries along decadent cobbled streets. Boasting world class restaurants and a plethora of bistros, St Tropez offers a sensual taste of exclusivity and is often a popular destination film stars and royalty. Despite being a mecca for the rich and famous, the village has maintained its superb charm with timeless streets and gorgeous scenery. Enjoy a sunset drink outside one of the many cafés and soak up the glitz and glamour of this sumptuous destination.
