An 8-day private yacht charter itinerary visiting Antibes, St Tropez, Monaco and Nice

Day 1

Embark in beautiful Antibes, the only town on the coast to be protected by ramparts, and thus it has managed to conserve historic monuments from each period in its heritage.

The Chateau, bastion and towers have today been transformed into a magnificent Modern Art Museum, History and Archaeology Museum and museum of traditional crafts and local culture.

 

Enjoy drinks or dinner at Hotel du Cap’s Eden Rock Restaurant and stroll the old and cobbled streets merged with modern shops, restaurants and bars.

 

Let yourself be guided by the charm of the craft workshops where craftsmen ply their trade, often leaving the doors of their workshops open for all to see, or by the boutiques with their sun-faded façades or by the beautiful odours of simmering dishes wafting from the open windows....

 

Day 2

After a leisurely morning, Cruise to the Isles de Lérins.

These islands sit a few miles off Cannes, they are beautiful and have many paths through the woods and are inhabited by a monastery and a vineyard.

 

These are picturesque and rugged islands with delightfully clear water - an excellent spot to stop for lunch and to relax and enjoy the water sports.

 

Day 3

Today we are off to chic and sexy St Tropez!

St Tropez has a wonderful ambiance and this is a place of the Cote d’Azur where one can truly experience the fabulousness of this stunning part of the world.

 

St Tropez offers a myriad of cobbled streets, boutique shops and fashionable cafes & restaurants – truly something for everyone!
You may like to experience a true day out in the Cote d’Azur by enjoying lunch at one of the chic beach bars like Club 55 or Le Voile Rouge at the world famous Pampelonne Beach.

 

Tonight, watch the lights and action from the safety of the Bay or head to town and dance the night away at the famous Hotel Byblos.

 

Day 4

Wind down on the beach or onboard, perhaps take a cruise to the Isle de Porquerolles off Hyeres for a relaxing decompression from last night.
Anchor off a quiet, sandy beach for lunch and a snorkel before returning to St. Tropez, or continuing on to tiny Port Cros in the midst of a nature reserve.

This is a beautiful and uniquely protected part of the coast, also known as the South Pacific of the Mediterranean.

 

Dine ashore in one of the quaint quayside restaurants or alfresco under the stars onboard.

 

Day 5

A cruise along the Riviera conjures up images of sand and pebble beaches, plush beach mattresses, long seaside promenades, bright blues of sea and sky, yellows and gold of sun and cliffs.

Rarely do we think of mountain ranges when dreaming of the French Côte d'Azur, but en route to Cannes you will enjoy the spectacular Esterel Mountains which run down to the sea.

 

The range's volcanic peaks rise out of the water like pointed fingers, their burnt-red color a shocking contrast against the deep blue of the Mediterranean Sea.

 

The glittering city of Cannes is world famous for its cosmopolitan dining, shopping, nightlife and people watching.

 

Once in Cannes, you will find a number of great little restaurants on the back street behind the Hotel De Ville. The Casino de Festival, the Martinez or Carlton for cocktails is also fun.

 

For walkers, a stroll along the waterfront offers a great opportunity to stretch your legs and take in the sights.

 

Day 6

Today enjoy a short cruise to glittering Monaco where endless entertainment opportunities await you. Stroll the busy streets, shop and take in the sights this afternoon.

Enjoy dinner onboard before heading out to the Casino to try your luck, or to the famous Jimmy’s open air bar or perhaps even dine ashore with a spectacular evening at the famous Louis XV.

 

Evenings in Monaco are absolutely enchanting!

 

Day 7

Depart after a leisurely breakfast for a stop in Beaulieu-sur-Mer and Cap Ferrat, up-market and pretty seaside resort towns between Nice and Monaco. They offer good sheltered anchorages for use of the water toys, shopping, fine restaurants and pretty tree lined streets.

It’s a short cruise to Villefranche Sur Mer, the largest natural harbour on the Coast.. The old town is full of traditional arts and crafts shops and the exotic gardens are not to be missed. The views from the top are absolutely spectacular and on a clear day, you can almost see Corsica!

 

If you wish to explore a bit, the medieval town of Eze is close by and makes for a nice afternoon excursion.

 

Day 8

Today just a relaxing cruise to Nice at your leisure.

The city's main seaside promenade, the Promenade des Anglais (‘the Walkway of the English') owes its name to the earliest visitors to the resort.

 

For decades now, the picturesque surroundings of Nice have attracted not only those in search of relaxation, but also those seeking inspiration.

 

The clear air and soft light has been of particular appeal to some of Western culture's most outstanding painters, such as Marc Chagall, Henri Matisse, Niki de Saint Phalle and Arman, whose work is commemorated in many of the city's museums, including Musée Marc Chagall, Musée Matisse and Musée des Beaux-Arts

 

Day 9

Today sees an end to another great holiday.

Enjoy a fabulous breakfast onboard and a stroll on the beachfront promenade before you prepare for disembarkation by midday.
