On the French Riviera you will find energy and excitement radiating from the ports and harbours. However, if you prefer lovely tranquil anchorages and unassuming waterside seafood restaurants on your yacht charter vacation, you can actually find this too! The vibrant coastline of the yacht charter Mecca of the Cote d’Azur runs from St. Tropez, to the Italian border. It is 100 miles of the most extravagant and exclusive waterfront in the world where you will find 30 harbours and more than 3,000 restaurants. This is the playground of the rich and famous and as a result, difficult to omit from any listing. Using Virgin Island Sailing® as your yacht broker will ensure successful charter planning.
The French Riviera has a typical mediterranean climate with chilly, rainy winters and summer temperatures tempered by the breeze. Most people avoid swimming in the winter since water temperatures only start to warm up during the summer and peaks in August. Summer is the ideal time to charter a yacht both to avoid the rainy season and to take advantage of the warm waters.

Your charter may begin at one of several cities in the French Riviera, usually Nice, Antibes or Cannes. The Nice Cote d’Azur Airport is easy to fly into from many major European cities and is no more than a 30 minute ride to your embarkation point in Cannes. If you are beginning your charter in Antibes or Nice then it is even closer.
