French Riviera Yacht

France – The Cote D’Azur Flotilla – New for 2017

Known as the playground of the rich and famous, it is also a fantastic sailing area, often overlooked by the charter industry. We have been promoting bareboat and skippered charters in this area for many years (as well as saving it for our own holidays) so it was a natural progression to offer a flotilla here. With its national parks and unspoiled offshore islands, historic towns and glitzy resorts, plus great shore-side facilities and arguably the best cuisine in the world, there are many good reasons to sail here. You have a choice of two superb one week itineraries which can be combined for a wonderful two week holiday. Our first week explores westwards including Bandol, Cassis, The Isle Frioul and the spectacular Calanques coastal national park. For our second week we head east towards St. Topez with Bormes Les Mimosas, Cavalaire and the offshore islands of Port Cros and Porquerolles to tempt you.

  • The St Tropez Route – Departures every other Saturday from May 20th to October 1st
  • The Cassis Route – Departures every other Saturday from May 27th to October 8th
