Searching for a retreat this summer on the buzzing hive that is the French Riviera? We have just the hotel for you! Villa Mauresque is situated on the edge of the Gulf of St Tropez, nestled away in beautiful gardens deceiving you as to just how much madness surrounds you in the neighbouring towns. This luxury boutique hotel on the French Riviera offers panoramic views which can be enjoyed as you dine on world class cuisine on the outside terrace.


Boatbookings.com Managing Director Capucine was lucky enough to sample the talent menu of the chef, which as you can see looks as good as it tasted! Capucine particularly noted the kind customer service, attention to detail and a discreet and private feel surrounding the hotel. The tranquil gardens were also highlighted as an amazing and rare offering of peace on the coast.


With St Tropez on your doorstep, Villa Mauresque the perfect location to use as a base for your day charter on the French Riviera, and Capucine highly recommends stopping at Villa Mauresque as lunch stop on your Cannes to St Tropez day charter itinerary.

The Very Best of Gastronomy on a Luxury Yacht

Gourmet_food_on_a_charter_yacht_180_352As more and more people are becoming food aware and are joining the growing ‘foodie’ trend, the time and effort that goes into the preparation of meals on board your luxury yacht is reaching new heights. Only the highest quality and freshest ingredients are acceptable in what is now one of the most important parts on your luxury yacht charter.

We all know of the importance of the out door space or the water toys on board, but like nothing else, it is the quality of the chef that can turn a great charter into an exceptional one.

For more on what you can expect in terms of gourmet food on board your yacht charter see our brand new guide to gourmet food on a luxury yacht.

One such yacht that has a fantastic chef on board and comes very highly recommended here at Boatbookings is Mi Sueno, a fantastic 190ft Trinity luxury yacht.

The chef on board, Chris, has got over 35 years experience in the yachting industry and charter broker Adam recently bore testament to his incredible passion and skill in the kitchen, saying “the variety on offer, from crab cakes topped with wasabi to home made fois gras was absolutely incredible, Chris is one of the best chefs around!”


At Boatbookings we do not just know the yachts themselves but we know the crew themselves and importantly have often tried the food cooked by the chef on board. We leave no stone unturned in making sure every aspect of the yacht is of the highest standard and will match all your requirements to not just the yacht but the crew.
