French Riviera

The coast with multiple worlds

The French Riviera, stretching majestically along the southeastern coast of France, has long been the sparkling jewel of the Mediterranean. Just a one-hour flight from Switzerland, you can sail along the Mediterranean coast and discover its many treasures. From historical heritage to gastronomy and breathtaking natural sites or reserves, from Marseille to Monaco, including the Golden Isles, Saint Tropez, Cannes, Antibes...

The south of France is a globally coveted destination offering an unparalleled maritime experience, blending glamour, history and natural beauty.

The allure of azure waters

Sailing on the azure waters is an experience in itself. The deep blue of the sea blends with the sky and the coastline offers a multitude of hidden coves, golden beaches and picturesque bays, perfect for a day of relaxation or diving.

From the moment you anchor in legendary ports like Saint-Tropez, Cannes, Nice, or Monaco, you are immersed in a world of luxury and prestige. Each marina is a spectacle in its own right, with impressive yachts lined up side by side, all surrounded by breathtaking Mediterranean landscapes.

A rich history along the water

The French Riviera is not only a luxury destination; it is also steeped in history. Sail to the Lérins Islands to discover an ancient fortress and a monastery or anchor near Old Antibes to explore its medieval alleyways and Provencal market.

Modern ports in a historical setting

For modern yachts, the French Riviera offers top-notch facilities. Ports like Port Vauban in Antibes, the port of Cannes, or the marina in Monaco provide high-end services for the most luxurious vessels, all surrounded by a rich heritage.

Wealth and diversity

Whether for a week or a weekend, the French Riviera offers you its diversity. Whether you desire to find yourself in secluded anchorages away from prying eyes amidst the Golden Isles or the Lérins Islands or make a stop in legendary ports like Saint Tropez, Monaco, or Cannes to enjoy their buzz, just a few nautical miles will transport you to a different world.

Mediterranean cuisine at its peak

The cuisine of the French Riviera is a fusion of Mediterranean flavors. Sailors can indulge in fresh seafood, fragrant olives, tapenades and local wines while enjoying a view of the sea. Local markets, like Cours Saleya in Nice, are a sensory delight.

Glamorous events and festivals

The Riviera is famous for its world-class events. The Cannes Film Festival attracts the elite of the film industry, while the Monaco Grand Prix is a must-see for racing enthusiasts. For art aficionados, destinations like Saint-Paul-de-Vence or the Maeght Foundation are must-visit spots.

Our opinion

The French Riviera is more than just a yachting destination; it's a way of life. For sailors and yacht owners, it's a promise of world-class anchorages, exquisite gastronomic experiences, and an immersion in Mediterranean glamour. Set sail for this iconic region and let yourself be enchanted by the azure magic, where each stop is a blend of elegance, history and natural beauty.

In short

When to visit?

To experience the French Riviera in all its splendor, consider the months of May to September. These months offer warm and sunny weather, perfect for sailing. June and September are particularly pleasant, combining mild climate with fewer crowds. July and August are highly popular but also more bustling.

Key destinations

The French Riviera captivates yachts with Monaco, a symbol of luxury; Nice, a blend of elegance and culture; Cannes, famous for its festival; Saint-Tropez, a haven of glamour; Antibes and its Port Vauban, one of the largest marinas; and the Lérins Islands, peaceful oases. An unparalleled Mediterranean odyssey.

Top experiences

While the sea is the primary attraction, the hinterland of the French Riviera is equally alluring. The fragrant lavender hills, lush vineyards, and perched villages provide a perfect escape for those who wish to explore beyond the coastline.
