Why Choose a French Riviera Flotilla?

Known as the playground of the rich and famous, it is also a fantastic sailing area, and overlooked as a flotilla destination until now, despite being more reasonable in price than you would think. 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. Tropez with Bormes Les Mimosas, Cavalaire and the offshore islands of Port Cros and Porquerolles to tempt you.

France – The Cote D’Azur

Frequently asked questions

Why should I choose a flotilla holiday?

You will be in charge of your own chartered yacht as part of a flotilla fleet of not more than twelve yachts. Your professional lead crew will be on hand to assist and guide you through the beautiful waters, organising social events along the way. The crew’s aim is to make this a personal experience for you, and their local knowledge will help to make your holiday a very special one.

What is included on my flotilla holiday?

  • Return flights from the UK (on flight inclusive packages)
  • Overseas airport transfers (on flight inclusive packages)
  • ATOL Protection (on flight inclusive packages)
  • Fully equipped charter yacht
  • Dinghy with outboard engine
  • A Seafarer welcome punch party
  • A Seafarer beach party (14 night flotilla holidays only)
  • All airport taxes
  • End cleaning of your flotilla yacht
  • The services of our experienced lead crew and the support of our local base team / local agents
  • One full tank of diesel, full water tank(s) and cooking gas
  • Welcome pack of provisions and cleaning products to get you started
  • Bed linen, shower towels & tea towels.

Note: Mooring charges (except at flotilla base) extra fuel or water; food, drink and items of a personal nature such as laundry are excluded. For those extending their holiday after the yacht charter, transfer costs from yacht base to your accommodation are usually excluded and payable locally unless you are booking a flight inclusive package.

Do I need a sailing license?

Yes, each skipper on a flotilla or bareboat charter is required to possess a recognised sailing qualification, typically either an RYA Day Skipper practical certificate or an International Certificate of Competence (ICC). If you have experience but not the qualification, our RYA training centre can help you to achieve this as part of your holiday. Call us to discuss this.

Do I need a visa for my holiday in France?

No, for British citizens, a tourist visa is not required.

Will I have to pay mooring fees?

On our flotillas, the first and last night of your charter will be in the marina, and we cover the fees for this (excluding showers and other marina facilities). The Cote D’Azur is of course a playground of the rich and famous and as such the marinas do levy charges for mooring in these beautiful spots. You can expect to pay around 3 euros per metre in May, June and September, whilst marina moorings in July and August are around 4 euros per metre.

What wind conditions can I expect?

Generally the prevailing winds are from the north west and north east, with strengths typically ranging from force 2 to force 6. During the hottest months, the Mistral can also make an appearance, with stronger wind conditions, generally from the North.

How much cash should I take with me?

Obviously this will depend on what your plans are, but generally you can expect to pay around 15 to 25 euros per person for an evening meal. Cards are universally accepted, although it is always worth having some cash (Euros) with you for tips and smaller purchases. Cash machines are available at our base in Port Pin Rolland, as well as in the majority of the flotilla destinations. Your flotilla crew will keep you updated and informed as your holiday progresses.

Do I need to stock up with provisions at base?

A few basic supplies and plenty of water is always good to have on the yacht, and the marina supermarket is close for the heavy items, however all the islands and ports have some facilities and shops. Half the fun of your flotilla holiday is exploring the harbours and villages, and of course there are plenty of restaurants for your evening meals ashore.

What are the rules regarding holding tanks in France?

In France all new vessels after 1st January 2008 are obliged by law to have at least 1 holding tank fitted as standard (not required for all heads). All pleasure craft users are required to comply with the rules that prohibit discharge in ports and all designated anchorage spots. Holding tanks should therefore only be discharged well away from land, and the use of shore facilities wherever possible is highly recommended.

Where in the UK can I fly from?

You can fly directly to Marseille Provence airport directly from London Heathrow, Gatwick, Luton & Stansted. Direct flights also available from Manchester, Glasgow, Bristol & Edinburgh.

How far is the base from the airport?

Port Pin Rolland is approximately 90 km from Marseille Provence airport and the transfer (which we can arrange for you) takes approximately 1 hour 20 minutes.

The St Tropez Route

France Flotilla Port Pin Rolland

Fly UK to Marseille Provence airport and transfer to our base in Port Pin Rolland for embarkation.

TWO WEEK FLOTILLA – Combine the St Tropez route with the Cassis route for a two week flotilla holiday

Note: French Riviera flotilla holiday routes may vary during the season according to weather and operating conditions. Our flotilla crew will keep you fully briefed each day.

The Weather

The Cote D’Azur is a world famous summer destination, and the weather is very predictable during the season. Blue skies and warm waters are the norm, with temperatures in the low to mid 20s during May and September, with the temperatures rising to the high 30s in the height of the summer. Winds are light to moderate, ranging from force 2 to 6, with occasional summer winds blowing from the North in greater strength.
