Sailing Cannes:

The French Riviera Sailing scene is ever increasing in popularity and the types of yacht charter available in Marseilles,  Cannes, St Tropez, Iles d’Hyères, Golf Juan and Port Pin Rolland are all types of yacht . Nice is a modern town which still embraces its long-standing traditions. Activity is non-stop at two famous markets, the colorful Cours Saleya with flowers, fruits, and vegetables, and the lively fish market of Saint-François Square. Hyères anchors the southern end of the coast where mountains tumble to wide, sandy bays. Don't miss the Iles d'Or, the "Golden Islands," home to the unspoiled nature preserves of the Ile de Porquerolles and Ile de Port-Cros.



As with most of the Mediterranean, the French Riviera Sailing 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 Sailing is concerned. 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.


We can offer Sailing and crewed charter from all major ports such as : Marseiles, Hyeres, Port Pin Rolland, Corsica, Nice, Golf Juan, Port GrimaudSt Tropez and Cannes.
