The glamorous French Riviera with its chic resorts and champagne lifestyle has been a magnet for yacht owners since the 1960’s when St.Tropez became ‘the place to go’. The beautiful people still anchor in the bay to visit the beach clubs of Pampelonne, or spend the night in one of the charming little towns that dot this coast. There are so many delights to explore, from amazing port side seafood restaurants in St. Jean Cap Ferrat and Ville Franche, to serene anchorages at the Iles des Lerins and Port Cros. Cruising here is a heady mix of glitz and tranquility against a classically beautiful backdrop – the azure sea, the deep blue of a Mediterranean sky and your own sleek motor or sailing yacht.
