Long revered as the ultimate mecca for glamorous and affluent jet-setters, the French Riviera – that delightful stretch of over 70 miles of coastline between Monaco in the east and St Tropez in the west – is one of the world’s most coveted private yacht charter destinations. Brimming with celebrated ports of call, a sophisticated ambiance, and occasionally, even unbridled hedonism, the French Riviera is the place to see and be seen, most especially on a luxury superyacht.

Yet this incredibly striking seaboard is not just about glitz and glamor. On a French Riviera yacht charter, you'll have the chance to explore all the enticing sides of this alluring strand of coast. Each beautiful port town showcases historical and cultural richness, where museums and architectural attractions sit alongside designer boutiques and cool little cafés. In Nice, St Tropez, Cannes and Monaco, you can also discover a maze of cobblestoned historic centers, 12th century castles, wonderfully preserved medieval cities, gothic churches and some of the most charming fishing ports in all of Europe. Add to that a delectable array of outstanding wine and produce, and you’ve just about found your yacht charter Nirvana. Shop, sightsee, swim, sail, feast and ogle.

On the French Riviera...you can really do it all.

The Highlights of a French Riviera Yacht Charters

The French Riviera is one mega-highlight, where you’ll find over 3,000 restaurants, a dozen championship golf courses, countless coves, endless beaches and outstanding deep blue waters, all at the tips of your sun-drenched toes.

On your French Riviera yacht charter itinerary, you’ll no doubt already know all about the elegant seaside promenade in Cannes, the Grand Casino of Monte Carlo and the painted seaside homes in Villefranche. But perhaps you may also want to discover the 12th-century castle in Antibes where Picasso spent much of his time, the picturesque perched village of Èze and the talented glass makers of Biot, who have been blowing their wares for centuries in this impossibly charming walled village, half way between Nice and Antibes.

This is, in fact, what makes this corner of the world such a spectacular yacht charter destination. The variety of attractions and activities abound both on and off the shores. Whether you love adrenaline rushes, historical hidden treasures, cultural infusions or luxurious pampering, you can find it all along a very compact and immensely scenic coastline on your French Riviera yacht charter itinerary

Take a bird’s eye view of the coast aboard a private helicopter or tumble through the surf on jet skis. Spend an entire day basking on Tahiti Beach in St. Tropez, toss the dice in Monaco, and wander the backstreets of Nice in search of the most sublime croissant on your Côte d’Azur yacht charter itinerary. Or just anchor offshore - admiring all of these things from the comfort and privacy of your own private yacht. Close enough to see it, smell it and hear it but far enough away to make you feel as if you have it all to yourself.

Make sure to include the Porquerolles Islands on your must-see  Côte d’Azur itinerary list, as here you’ll find arguably the best, clearest and most awe-inspiring waters and pearly-white sands on the entire Côte d’Azur. Highly protected as a nature reserve , the best way to experience it is biking or walking along the shoreside trails

The region plays host to many extraordinary events throughout the year with the Cannes Film Festival and the Monaco Grand Prix topping the list. On your Côte d’Azur itinerary, imagine your front row seat being the sundeck of your superyacht as the F1 cars zoom right past you.
