Côte d’Azur 1

The Côte d’Azur, dream stopovers guaranteed

The Côte d’Azur is one of the preferred destinations for chartering a boat in the Mediterranean due to its proximity and accessibility. You can reach Marseille and Nice in just a few hours from Paris (3 hours by TGV high speed train and 1.5 hrs by plane).

Sail from Marseille to the Italian coast, a fabulous playground for trimaran, catamaran and monohull sailors looking for dream stopovers: Cap d’Antibes, the Cassis coves, and the coasts rich in natural shelters and marinas allow you to alternate between harbour and at anchor as you wish.

You can moor your yacht in Hyères, the city of 7000 palm trees, or Bormes-les-Mimosas, one of the most beautiful sites in France with a 12th century heritage, or Saint-Raphaël the coastal town at the foot of the superb Estérel massif, or the famous cities of Cannes, Saint-Tropez, and Monte-Carlo known all over the world … so many iconic names. Then, of course, there are the essential islands: the Embiez archipelago, the Lérins islands, and the Iles d’Or… With 33 marinas, the Côte d’Azur offers a unique coastal sailing experience. Sail from port to cove, on board your rented boat.

If you have rented your boat for more than a week: set sail for Corsica, the Balearics and why not Sardinia?!
