Leisure and Holiday Yacht Charter in Monaco

Monaco is easily accessed as a destination on the French Riviera. Clients take a flight to Nice Airport and take a short transfer to Port Hercules in the centre of Monte Carlo, Monaco. From here you can easily visit other stunning destinations along the Riviera, touring dreamy destinations such as the picturesque Villefranche-sur-mer. Find peace in St- Jean Cap Ferrat, the apex of the French Riviera's “Golden Triangle," said to be one of the most beautiful bays in the world and home to some of the most spectacular villas belonging to Bono, Bill Gates and Charlie Chaplin back in the 1960s. 
We would highly recommend a motor yacht if you wish to see as much of the French Riviera as possible. Particularly as this would allow you to explore the French Riviera and Italian Riviera in the same week. If you would prefer a tranquil and serene cruise around the rugged French coastline at a slower pace, we would recommend chartering a luxury sailing yacht. One of the best characteristics of the Côte d'Azur is the sheer variety of charm and culture each port town possesses, but the coast is best explored aboard a yacht.

Day Charter in Monaco

A Monaco yacht charter offers endless possibilities of things to do. Bask in the splendour of the Grimaldi Palace, or relax in uninterrupted serenity at the spa of the Thermes Marins Monte-Carlo. In the evening, head to the legendary Casino and try your luck in a game of Black Jack in true James Bond style. Even if you’re not the gambling type, you can appreciate the frescoes, sculpture and impeccable design by Charles Garnier, the architect of the Paris Opera House.

Dine in the chic Nobu Monte Carlo restaurant, and delight in exceptional dishes such as the renowned black cod whilst overlooking the sparkling Mediterranean. If you are not ready for the night to end, dance the night away at the trendy night club, Twiga; located right before the famous F1 tunnel at the bottom of the Fairmont hotel and a frequent haunt of the stars.
