You can easily see many of the stars houses in charter from Cannes to Monaco - two possible itineraries are drawn above.  It's too much to everything from Monaco to St Tropez in one day, we recommend two trips starting from Cannes, one north to Cap Ferrat and Monaco and one south to St Tropez.  Our captains will point out the villas and hot spots, and you may even bump into a celebrity at lunch!  See our French Riviera Charter Yachts or simply contact us and we'll recommend the best yacht and knowledgeable captain for you.
