Sailing in France, the Cote d'Azur


The South of France is easily accessible via the airports of Marseille and Nice.

The yacht charter prices are slightly higher than elsewhere. In high season marinas are often full and high priced, but there are also alternative anchor possibilities.

If you can go out of high season then that is of course a better option.

 

Marseille

The local authorities have put a lot of effort into having a more attractive appearance, especially for the surroundings of Marseille. The old port is now a pleasant and safe place surrounded by excellent restaurants.

 

Port Pin Roland

At the port of Pin Roland, most of our French sailing yachts are located.

 

The Porquerolles islands are easily accessible from this base and are close to the coast. You can anchor here beautifully, swim and explore the islands.

 

The glitz and glamour of St. Tropez, Cap d'Antibes and Cannes are within reach although the latter is on a decent stretch.

 

Do you want to search for a sailing yacht yourself? This can be done below.

 

 

Sailing along the French Riviera, charter a sailing yacht with or without skipper

The French Riviera stretches roughly between Marseille and the Italian border and is characterized by the smell of the salty sea air and chestnut trees. It is one of the most famous tourist areas in the world. A coast with many possibilities and a mostly pleasant wind. Many hospitable marinas along the coast and famous names such as Le Lavandou, Saint Raphaël, Fréjus and Port Grimaud. For many sailors a dream to sail here, but there are also plenty activities in the area for families with children.

Modern seaside resorts such as Nice, Cannes and Monaco are real attractions where it is great to stroll along and shop. For the holidaymaker who prefers to leave the crowds, there are plenty of alternatives. The three islands, Île de Porquerolles, Île du Levant and Île de Port Cros, are known as the 'Golden Islands'. There are enough hidden anchor bays and small marinas in this area.

The prices of the marinas are at a high level in the summer.

Taste the atmosphere of Nice, Cannes, Antibes, St. Tropez and the Principality of Monaco. There are also opportunities to dive into history and to view old buildings and museums.

Start with the adventure

A trip to Corsica is possible for adventurous and experienced sailors. Corsica is a paradise on earth because of its beautiful varied nature and culinary specialties. Calvi is dominated by its fort Vauban, Propriano and Bonifacio on the edge of the rocks and cliffs. In short, it is wonderful to sail in France along the French Riviera.

 

Sailing in this area is a very good alternative to the Costa Brava in Spain. Greece, Croatia and Turkey remain the top destinations with beautiful natural bays and anchorages.
