Côte d’Azur yacht charterOne small stretch of Mediterranean coastline has always epitomised the glamour and sophistication of superyachting.
From the fairy-tale kingdom of Monaco along the French Riviera to Saint-Tropez, the very names drip with sophistication: Monte-Carlo, Cap Ferrat, Nice, Antibes, Cannes.
A playground for film stars and royalty, sheiks and industrial magnates, the Côte d’Azur never loses its gloss, offering just about everything that is synonymous with the lifestyle of the rich and famous.
And if you have taken your fill of the hustle and bustle, glitz and glamour, there are still havens of tranquility to be found – the Porquerolles, Lerin Islands and Bay d’Agay to name a few – where you can drop anchor in quiet bays, picnic on secluded beaches or follow a trail inland through olive groves and fragrant thickets of rosemary and lavender.
Yachts for charter in the West Mediterranean
The Côte d'Azur is the superyacht hub of the Western Med. The harbours may be crowded, but that makes for a great social scene!
Superb Snorkelling and Swimming
The lovely Iles d’Hyeres are a refreshing change from the intense glamour of nearby Saint-Tropez. On Port-Cros and Ile du Levant you can swim and snorkel in clear turquoise water and feel a million miles from civilisation.
