French Riviera Yacht Charter
A French Riviera yacht holiday, or as we like to say ‘in the South of France’, you can experience the razzle-dazzle; the glitz and glamour; the Versace; the Dior; the Cartier of Nice, Antibes, Cannes, St Tropez and Marseilles or just relax, enjoy the beautiful coastline and quiet aboard your yacht – it’s up to you.
You will also find energy and excitement oozing from Europe’s holidaymakers, as this is one of their favourite places to enjoy their summer coastal vacations. If you prefer lovely tranquil anchorages and unassuming waterside seafood restaurants on your yacht charter vacation, you can find this too!
Careful planning for time of year and seasons as well as costs, is worth the effort (Ref: www.charterworld.com)

The coastline is striking, lipped with beaches that resting beneath hillsides heavy with yellow mimosa.
During the summer you will find large numbers of charter yachts cruising the shoreline, although boating is possible here all year long.
The climate is balmy, with long, dry summers, moderate breezes, mild winters and plenty of sunshine all year round.

Anchor offshore, indulge in water sports, sunbathing all from the deck of your charter yacht. Enjoy the silhouette of the stunning and colorful French coastline as it changes through the light of day.
Go ashore for a glamorous evening at the Hotel Bel Air or a quaint waterfront restaurant.
Don’t miss taking a trip through the groves of cacti palms and lemon on your way to the picture-book village of Eze and enjoy the restaurant and the thousand year old castle, Chateau dela Chèvre d’or while onshore.

Weather And Winds
In keeping with most of the Mediterranean, the French Riviera yacht charter season generally runs from April to the end of October.
The summer season in July and August is the hottest and tends to have the warmest sunshine, lightest winds and also the largest crowds.
This is also the high season as far as French Riviera yacht charter is concerned and obviously then, the most expensive time to charter.
Other good times to charter your yacht is generally on either of the shoulder seasons (April-May and September-October),
each side of the main summer season (July-August),
as the temperatures are still comfortable, and the onshore tourists have yet to arrive in their largest numbers,
allowing you more freedom ashore to enjoy the lifestyle there.
