France

Cabin | Bareboat | Skippered | Crewed

A beautiful, dynamic sailing destination, France enjoys both the rippling sapphire seas of the Atlantic Ocean and the welcoming waters of the Mediterranean Sea. Gently wander along at your own pace while exploring fantastic coastal French villages. Take a moment to soak up the postcard-worthy views made up of megaliths and historical constructs. Find a cosy spot on a terrace to sit back and relax, sipping champagne and sampling rich, mouth-watering food, full of heart. 

Along France’s wild western coast, water-sports opportunities are plentiful for thrill-seekers. Or soak in the sunshine and salty fresh air, as you laze on a sparkling French beach.

The Cruising Ground

Cote D’azur

Bareboat | Skippered | Crewed

Discover the French Riviera, whose sublime beauty attracted aristocrats and artists alike in the 1960s. Sail across the inviting azure waters of the Mediterranean Sea from Marseille to the charming Port Pin Rolland. From there, indulge in the spectacular vista of the island of Porquerolles or stretch your legs amongst the unspoiled natural splendour of Port Cros National Park.

Your adventure would be incomplete without dipping your toes into the glimmering yellow sands of the Gulf of St. Tropez. Not to be missed is Port Grimaud which will hypnotize with its old-world charm, reminiscent of Venice’s famous canals. Finally, continue from Golfe Juan and meander towards Nice.
