The French Riviera: Glamour & Gastronomy

The French Riveria offers a beautiful climate, superlative landscape and diverse sailing grounds: from tranquil islands to the pulsing social scene of St. Tropez and Monaco. Sheltered by the Alps and cosseted by warm Mediterranean breezes, this world-renowned stretch of coast in the South of France has a sub-tropical climate and abundant, lush vegetation fringed with golden sands. Named the Cote d'Azur after its strikingly blue waters, it’s no wonder that several famous painters, including Picasso and Cezanne, chose to live in this area. From the glitz and glamour in Monaco, Cannes or St. Tropez, and culture and culinary scene in Antibes and Villefranche-Sur-Mer, explore the Riviera on your own private luxury yacht.

Enjoy shopping and lunch in St. Tropez before retreating to a secluded cove to enjoy the sun in peace and privacy. Stay in Port de Hercules in Monte-Carlo (Monaco) and Billionaire’s Quay in Antibes to watch the superyachts (and the people who own them) vie for attention like toys in a bathtub. Of course, each enclave along this famous coastline has a distinct personality and atmosphere, so take the time to explore our guides for Cannes, Monaco, St. Tropez, Antibes, Cap-Ferrat and Villefranche-Sur-Mer.
