French Riviera Sailing Holidays
The French Riviera, a.k.a. Côte d’Azur, on the southeast of France, needs no introduction. Renowned for its glitz and glamor, home to many celebrities, the French Riviera has become a synonym for luxury yacht charter.
Yacht Charter in the French Riviera
Yacht charter on the French Riviera is the perfect place for a sailing holiday if you want to indulge in luxury. However, in case you want to avoid ostentatious and over-priced destinations, or you are simply in the mood to explore less known and less crowded ports, we have a few recommendations. One of the hidden gems is definitely the city in bloom Bormes-les-Mimosas. There, you can stroll along charming medieval streets, admiring award-winning mimosa displays, as the name suggests.
Another seaside town popular with sailors is Port Grimaud, offering you peace and quiet, as well as the Venetian-style architecture to admire. There is also a charming fishing port of Saint-Mandrier-sur-Mer, favorite among water sports enthusiasts, especially scuba-divers, due to its rough coastline and steep inlets.
