Embark on a short cruise to Villefranche; a picturesque, yet remote town featuring an idyllic beach. Admire the colourful fishing town either from your yacht or on foot, briefly stopping for a coffee or crêpe. Get your adrenaline pumping in the afternoon doing water sports in the bay of Beaulieu before heading towards St Jean with sundowner in hand, for your overnight anchorage and a beautifully prepared dinner onboard, getting to know your Captain and crew.
Rise early anchored just off the charming little town of St Jean-Cap-Ferrat. Soak up the sun, have fun with the water toys available onboard and depending on what vibe you are after; get ready to attend the Paloma beach club for a sophisticated lunch, or Anjuna for a vibrant and fun atmosphere perfect for a celebration.
Make a splash with the watersport equipment or wander uphill to the Church of St Giorgio for panoramic views. As the sun sets, sip Peach Bellini sundowners on the terrace of the Hotel Splendido before taking a seat for a delectable dinner.
Soak up the sun on the foredeck as you cruise towards the glamorous city of Cannes, stopping at Les Îles de Lérins for a fabulous lunch at La Guerite; renowned for their Greek infused delacacies, fresh fish and vibrant atmosphere on the shores of Île Sainte Marguerite.
Tender ashore to Le Vieux Port in Cannes, for sundowners at the Radisson Blu 1865 hotel's Le 360 rooftop bar for panoramic views across the bay, old town and the Esterel hills. Finish the night in style at Hyde beach club off La Croisette, before returning by tender to your yacht, taking centre-stage anchorage in the bay.
Provencal and night markets featuring local produce, jewellery and crafts take place throughout the summer so be sure to have a wander around the stalls! Spend the afternoon in Les Îles de Lérins, islands off Cannes where the water is dazzling blue, making it the perfect location for swimming or snorkelling away from the busy beaches.
Take a morning stroll along La Croisette and browse the high-end boutiques before picking up anchor and heading to final stop St Tropez for a day at Bagatele; a beach club which celebrates the South of France's joie de vivre and epicurean spirit.
