Yacht charters in Cote d’Azur allow you to move easily throughout the different big cities such as St Tropez, Cannes, Antibes, Monaco and more! The crystal clear waters of the mediterranean, palm trees and islands make this a dream come true. 
One of the most wild islands located off Cote d’Azur is Iles d’Hyeres also known as the Golden Isles is known for its ancient forts, hiking and snorkeling areas. The three islands that make up the Golden Isles are Porquerolles, Port-Cros and Levant. A luxury yacht charter in French Riviera allows you to easily hop to these islands and other cities without any problems. 
If you are looking for a classic medieval village, why not go to Eze? Eze is a photogenic town with a 12th century fortified castle and has two famous perfume companies that you can tour! Some of the best views are seen from the seaside with this beautiful castle and the surrounding area. Corniche d’Or or Golden Coast is another scenic route and offers views of rocky coastlines and Esterel Mountains. 
St Tropez is a chic area with local restaurants and bars. We recommend trying the tarte tropezinne, a dessert created in this area which is a hybrid cake and brioche. This is one of the best places to visit to experience the glamour and beauty of the French Riviera. The historic village offers exclusive beach clubs, pastel coloured houses and narrow cobblestone streets. Your French Riviera yacht charter is waiting for you!
Are you a film enthusiast? Head to Cannes during the film festival and maybe you will run into a celebrity you know! One of the most popular beaches in Cannes is the Plage de la Bocca. This beach can be less hectic in the summer and is particularly popular with young families. Plage du Midi instead has a friendly vibe and a selection of restaurants and ice cream parlours. Perfect to take the kids after a long day! Looking for a party? The Martinez Beach every afternoon from 1pm to 8pm has DJs, violinists and more.
