Stunning landscapes, glamourous lifestyle and gourmet cuisine to make you feel a whole world away from home during your French Riviera yacht charter.


Every summer, yachting enthusiasts head to the south of France to enjoy a French Riviera yacht charter. The stunning coastline extends from Monaco up to St Tropez and is the quintessential Mediterranean yacht charter destination. Swim in beautiful coves, take advantage of water sports, party all night long, relax at world-class spas, play a round of golf or simply wander around cobblestone streets, there is plenty to do and see during a luxury yacht rental in the south of France. The French Riviera has many treats in store from beautiful sandy beaches to picturesque Provencal villages, historic monuments, vibrant nightlife, fine dining and fabulous shopping. The season starts with the Cannes Film Festival as well as the Monaco Grand Prix events and extends from May to October. There is an unrivalled energy along the coast during the busy summer months while the off-season is quieter but most pleasant. The south of France is a short cruise away from Corsica and the Italian Riviera which can be great for a combined itinerary if time allows.
