The French Riviera, neighbored by Monaco—the superyacht capital—and home to some of the world’s best towns and beaches, is one of the most exceptional Mediterranean regions for yacht chartering. The coastline extends from Marseilles to the Italian border, encompassing a variety of stunning destinations.

The yachting season runs from May to September. June and September offer milder temperatures (low to mid-20s Celsius), while July and August—considered the peak season. The Cannes Film Festival in May may see cooler and rainier weather, but conditions typically improve by the Monaco Grand Prix weekend, signaling the start of the Mediterranean season. From June onward, expect minimal rain and abundant sunshine.

Key Destinations in the French Riviera

Monaco: Known for luxury shopping, exquisite dining, and vibrant nightlife. For a smooth experience, dock at Port Hercules as offshore anchoring can be turbulent.

Beaulieu-sur-Mer / Villefranche-sur-Mer / Èze-sur-Mer: Perfect for water sports, with a lively lunch spot at Anjuna Beach Club. Hike to the medieval Èze village for breathtaking views and enjoy a spritz at La Colombe d'Or Hotel. A taxi service is available for those who prefer not to hike.

Antibes: Serving as the home port for some of the world’s largest superyachts, Antibes is an excellent starting point for exploring the South of France. The town offers gourmet French restaurants, scenic waterfront walks, lively morning food markets, and the famous Mamo’s restaurant for dinner.

Cannes: Offers fantastic shopping and trendy beach clubs. La Guérite on the Îles de Lérins is a top choice for a beach club, while La Môme in town is a favorite for dining.

Saint-Tropez: Known for its exceptional restaurants, a stay of two days on a one-week charter or three to four days on a two-week charter is recommended to fully explore. Spend nights anchored at Pampelonne Beach and in the port.

Exploring Corsica

Adding to the allure of the French Riviera is Corsica, located just south of the Côte d'Azur. The island blends French and Italian influences in its cuisine, architecture, and dialect, offering a unique combination of elegance and charm. Corsica, the fourth largest Mediterranean island, is a hidden gem for yacht charters, largely undiscovered by mass tourism.

Corsica’s natural beauty and cultural richness are best experienced on a yacht charter, making it a must-visit alongside the South of France.

"First Hand Experience"

Sophia and Ellie always do a great job. They sent me a number of yachts to consider and were very thorough throughout the selection process. It helps that the girls have had tangible experience staying/enjoying yachts so they can speak first hand about their recommendations.

"Cannot recommend Ahoy Club enough"

July 2022

We rented Chaos for 10 days in the Whitsundays with our family of 3 boys and girlfriends. It was the most wonderful trip. Chaos has been appointed meticulously catering for everything you could need and more. The staff were above and beyond brilliant, making sure there was never a dull moment and everyone was happy with constant activities and excursions. I cannot recommend Ahoy enough, their professionalism and service is 6 star.
