1day


Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat
Start your French Riviera yacht charter itinerary in Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, a lively town with stunning bays and coves nestled in the Côte d’Azur’s ‘golden triangle.’ Once a quaint fishing village, it’s now famed for its spa resort, artistic charm, and natural beauty. Visit the Villa Ephrussi before disembarking. Built by Baroness Béatrice de Rothschild, who passed away in 1934, this Renaissance-style palace showcases art in its private Florentine and Venetian apartments.

Next, stop by the Santo Sospir villa, famously ‘tattooed’ with artist Jean Cocteau’s wall paintings, before savouring a gourmet meal by Michelin-star chef Yoric Tièche at the Grand-Hôtel. Afterwards, head to the port to board your yacht and enjoy a nightcap under the stars as the town’s lights twinkle in the distance.

2day

Villefranche-sur-Mer & Antibes
On the second day of your French Riviera yacht charter itinerary, cruise a short distance to one of the most postcard-picture-perfect old towns along the Côte d’Azur – Villefranche-sur-Mer. An idyllic and colourful town, its beauty is hidden in the details, from pastel-hued traditional houses of the old town to the vivid azure seas to the dense green hills and potted flowers hanging from its balconies. Relax at the Plage des Marinieres, swim along the curved bay or explore the winding streets of the old town.

Later in the day, cruise to Antibes, a favourite among the French yachting elite. A delightful, picturesque city, once a source of inspiration for the artist Picasso, take in the beauty of its whitewashed mansions, pine forests and small winding cobblestone streets. Explore its old town enclosed by ramparts dating back to the 16th century and the star-shaped Fort Carré before enjoying a gourmet meal prepared by your private chef on your French Riviera yacht charter.

3day

Cannes & Les Iles de Lérins
On the third day of your French Riviera yacht charter itinerary, wake up by the stunning Vieux Port of Cannes. Retaining all of its glistening charm and allure from its 1950s heydays, Cannes is a town that’s synonymous with glamour, elegance and sophistication. Enjoy an espresso by the Promenade de la Croisette before venturing up the stairwells to Le Suquet, the original hillside settlement of the town. Take in the panoramic views of La Croisette, the fortified tower, and the 12th-century Chapel of St Anne.

A short cruising distance away from Cannes lies the Lérins Islands. An archipelago of four islands, spend the afternoon of your crewed yacht charter exploring the largest two islands, Saint-Marguerite and Saint-Honorat. Relax on one of St Marguerite’s beaches or visit the 17th-century Fort Royal. Plan an excursion to the fortified monastery of Lérins or the Abbey of Lérins, overseen by the Cistercian monks who founded the island of St Honorat in the year 410. Have your crew prepare a beach BBQ as the sun sets.

4day

St Tropez
On the fourth day of your French Riviera yacht charter itinerary, you’ll wake up by one of the most renowned yachting hubs – Saint Tropez. A city overflowing with modern-day luxuries, opulence and thriving nightlife, spend a lazy morning by one of its iconic beach clubs at Place de Pampelonne, where you can sunbathe, swim and enjoy fine dining and entertainment.

Later, head down the Rue de la Citadelle to the centre of St Tropez’s old town, the most charming part of the city. Affectionately known as ‘La Ponche’ by the locals, stop by some local cafes and high-end boutiques before discovering the fine art of dining at the three-Michelin star restaurant La Vague d’Or. End the night at Les Caves du Roy Nightclub, VIP Room, or L’Opera.

5day

Porquerolles
On the fifth day of your French Riviera yacht charter itinerary, cruise a short distance to the island of Porquerolles. A little slice of serene paradise, this island is home to three spectacular beaches, rolling hills and large rock gorges. Strike a vivid contrast to the hustle and bustle of some other locations along the Côte d’Azur, take the tender ashore for a day’s excursion. 

Enjoy sunbathing in tranquillity on the beaches, hiking along the coastline, or trekking to the lighthouse built in 1837, which has breathtaking views of the island and sea. After a day’s worth of adventures or relaxation, return to your yacht charter for a delectable meal cooked by your chef.

6day

Cap Taillat
On the sixth day of your French Riviera yacht charter itinerary, cruise along the southern part of the Gulf of St Tropez to discover the untouched beauty of Cap Taillat. Perhaps one of the Côte d’Azur’s best-kept secrets, it’s only accessible by foot or boat and remains largely undeveloped. Under the protection of the Conservatoire du Littoral, the island is home to some of France’s rarest plant species and a population of Hermann tortoises. Take the tender ashore and select one of the many coves to spend a few hours swimming, sunbathing or snorkelling. Break out the water toys or hike along the coastline before enjoying a first-class meal on the deck of your yacht as the sunsets.
