Part of the south coast of France is often known as the French Riviera. The golden beaches of the Mediterranean stretch from the town of Cassis to the Italian border. The area has always been associated with glamour, celebrity, sophistication and superyachts. Also known as the Côte d’Azur, it is a must visit place if you are into yachting or boating for pleasure. It even works as a sweetener if you are entertaining clients. We can think of no better place to do business than aboard a beautiful superyacht charter in this perfect setting.
Places of interest
The coastline includes towns with names that shout exclusivity. Nice, Cannes, Monaco, and Saint Tropez are all ports for yacht charterers and can provide every luxury that money can buy. Nightclubs casinos, boutiques, five-star hotels and Michelin-starred restaurants are everywhere. However, despite the riches on offer, nothing looks out of place next to the quaint appeal of the fishing villages and local markets.
Nice International Airport is the place to fly into for easy access to the French Riviera. There are even convenient helicopter transfers to both St. Tropez and Monaco, for those wishing to avoid the traffic.
The Principality of Monaco tucks in between France and Italy along the Côte d’Azur. It is split up into districts, the most famous being Monte-Carlo. Considered by many as the epicentre of luxury yachts, it hosts the Monaco Yacht Show each year in September – a show exclusively for large, lavish vessels. It is also the venue of the world-famous Formula 1 motor race and other internationally recognised sporting events. Yacht Charter bookings are available, but such a popular destination gets very busy. Remember to book ahead, especially for charters in peak summer season.
This is a busy French city, located on the Riviera. It is a community located in the Alpes-Maritimes district and has become famous as the host city for the annual Cannes Film Festival, and the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity.
The harbour town of Saint-Tropez is the main port of call for many visitors to this part of the Mediterranean. Innovation and top quality services have made the marina at Saint-Tropez one of the most visited marinas in the world for superyachts and yacht charters. It is hard to walk around town for very long before spotting someone you have seen in a magazine. A-list celebrities pack the restaurants and nightclubs during the summer months. Famous players and spectators frequent the many sports events held here, such as International Polo tournaments.
