Fall in love with France, a country of stunning gothic architecture, Michelin-starred food, romantic vistas, and charming rustic villages. From taking in the charming medieval landscapes while sipping on some of the best wine in the world, to going all out on designer shopping and visiting the glamorous Cote D’Azur, France is a perfect luxury yacht charter destination with a variety of attractions. Nestled in the southeast of France, the Cote’Azur, literally meaning the azure coast, beckons guests to explore its glamorous grounds. With many A-list, celebrity fans, at least 90% of yachts make their way to the French Riviera. Sail through and explore the majestic ruins of Nice, and the scintillating nightlife of St. Tropez, delight in the Cannes Film Festival and get lost in the gorgeous alleyways of the graphic Old Town of Antibes.

Reasons to visit France

France is a country of many antitheses; from the bustling charm of lively Paris to the relaxed ambiance of its small, charming villages, and from secluded white sandy beaches, to the glitz and glam of the Cote D’Azur, France is a luxury yacht charter destination that is like no other. Discover hidden idyllic coves, the likes of En Vau, which gracefully sits between Cassis and Marseille. Instead of hiking the distance to

the remote bay, sail your charter yacht there in absolute style and luxury. A VIP destination, the French Riviera is a must-visit. Enjoy azure waters and white sandy beaches, delicious food, exceptional nature, upscale boutique shopping, and glamorous nightlife. Ask the crew to bring you some fragrant fresh croissants to have for breakfast alfresco on the deck from a local Boulangerie, and come to know the true French way of life.

Local Culture and Cuisine

Steeped In rich culture, France has been the subject of many artists’ work. Housing over 1200 museums, it's considered an important stop for anyone interested in the arts. On a culinary note, French cuisine is well-known and appreciated as one of the finest cuisines in the world. Using butter, cream, and tapenades paired with the fluffiest bread you have ever tasted, French cuisine is an experience in itself.

Best Places for Wining and Dining

You won’t be short of options when it comes to eating out in the gastronomic hub of France. Just behind the Old Port of Nice, sits Michelin-starred restaurant Jan. Curated by chef Jan Hendrik, Jan serves a comprehensive degustation menu. Sample the fish and seawater from Nice, herbed with dill and lemongrass, and paired with puffed local spelt, or the burnt honey sago, with sesame, hazelnut, and "doily". Ask the crew to book you a table so you don’t miss out on this fantastic gastronomic experience.

Yacht Hunter Recommends - Don’t miss out!

​Veer off from the luxurious, pleasure-seeking Côte d'Azur set your yacht’s course to Italy and the Island of Corsica. This is a unique place where the old and the new blend into one, and easy-going Mediterranean style is mixed with the chic and modern French way of life. The distinct flavor of Italy found its way to Corsica through customs, and left a large imprint on the language and cuisine, something you will definitely sense during your Corsican holiday on a chartered yacht.

The South of Corsica boasts some of the greatest beaches in the world. With a landscape reminiscent of the Caribbean, the beaches have powdery soft white sand, and turquoise crystalline waters, while being framed by stacked red-colored rocks. Take a dive into serenity when you visit Palombaggia Beach, an absolute must-visit for your luxury yacht charter.


This beautiful city famous for the Cannes Film Festival and luxury yacht exhibition at the end of summer blends the luxury and brilliance of the Côte d'Azur. Excellent shopping in the best boutiques on the coast can be combined with a stroll along the city's famous Boulevard La Croisette, which winds along the sandy beach.


Nice is a treasury of culture values, and is one of the largest cities in France. The city was home to avant-garde artists and impressionists, including Picasso and Chagal. Take a look at the Matisse collection in the local museum. Walkthrough the city’s center and get inspiration from the breathtaking baroque architecture before taking a seat in one of the Michelin-starred restaurants. You could spend an evening at the ballet in Nice Opera House.


Antibes’ contrasting appearance charms unsuspecting visitors: an imposing medieval fort and carefree snow-white yachts passing along the embankment; white pebble beaches and dark, pine-covered hills giving way to snow-capped mountains. Don’t forget to get a look at the ancient lighthouse on Antibes Cape from the sea.


One of the most beautiful bays in the world, as reflected in its numerous portrayals by great artists and photographers, is located in the town of Villefranche-sur-Mer. Just like its seasoned, luxurious neighbor Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, Villefranche-sur-Mer is famous for its discreet elegance. It is a very intimate, compact town. Its stunning beach, nestled between the old town and dark pine forests, is considered one of the best beaches on the Riviera. 


Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat stands apart from its noisy hedonistic neighbors and has the very special atmosphere of an authentic French bourgeois town. To this day, the stunning climate on the cape, convenient location, tranquility, harmony and calmness attract the global elite to the city.


Corsica attracts travelers with its rugged coastline, gorgeous sandy beaches and majestic mountains. Both French and Italian cultures can be found in the cuisine, architecture and dialect of the island.
Corsica, located south of mainland France and west of Italy, is the fourth largest island in the Mediterranean and, despite its popularity, remains largely undiscovered by tourists. It is a great yacht charter destination, with secluded coves, golden sands and kilometers of scenic coastline. There is no better way to explore the hidden treasures of this wonderful island than aboard a luxury superyacht.
For beach lovers, Valinko Bay is not to be missed - it is home to some of the most beautiful beaches the island has to offer. Cruise Palombaggia, Santa Giulia and Rondinara - each offering stunning stretches of golden sand. Walk the turquoise waters of Campomoro before heading to the charming and wonderful town of Bonifacio on the southern tip of Corsica. Bonifacio offers one of the harbor's most memorable entrances.
