Corsica and Sardinia
Corsica and Sardinia The Jewels of the Mediterranean!
Corsica will surprise you with its wild beauty, the diversity of its landscapes and its strong culture. You will sail there from St Florent to Porto Vecchio via Calvi, the Scandola reserve, Ajaccio, Porto Polo, Bonifacio and the Lavezzi Islands. Further south, Sardinia will seduce you with its bays of golden sand and crystal-clear waters that contrast with its mountains and lush green scrub. The costa Smeralda, the archipelago of La Maddalena or the island of Caprera are full of wonderful landscapes.
Stopovers not to be missed!
Saint Florent is nestled in the hollow of the magnificent gulf to which it gave its name. Stroll through the old town through winding alleys lined with old houses and squares filled with oleanders.
Proudly camped on its bright harbor in a mountainous setting, Calvi is one of the most beautiful sites on the island with its citadel which juts out majestically into the gulf. The arrival by sea is memorable!
Built on an exceptional site, Bonifacio is a must-see. Enclosed in its fortifications, the old town, perched on a narrow and high limestone promontory shaped by the sea and the wind, dominates the port. Magical !
The Archipelago of the Lavezzi Islands which emerges off the tip of Sperone forms a small paradise of crystal-clear water and coves carpeted with fine sand. The shapes of granite rocks evoke an almost lunar landscape. Magnificent !
Dominated by its citadel, Porto-Vecchio enjoys a strategic position. You will be seduced by its dream beaches and its unique atmosphere, which makes it the Saint-Tropez of Corsica.
The Balearic Islands
The Fabulous Four
The Balearic Islands are a cruising playground for yacht charters with the main islands of Menora, Mallorca, Ibiza and Formentera all boasting many hidden gems just waiting to be explored. This stunning archipelago is wonderfully diverse and with some areas only accessible by boat, the Balearic Islands make for an idyllic yacht charter vacation.
Each island is unique in character and charm offering many reasons to explore these stunning islands and islets. Mallorca, the largest of the islands has retained its original unspoiled charm, with wrought iron balconied buildings and attractive squares boasting a seductive appeal. The capital city, Palma de Mallorca is an unmissable stop. Often likened to a little Barcelona, Palma is blessed with excellent superyacht facilities, as well as some wonderful restaurants and bars. You only have to travel in a few miles inland to escape the hustle and bustle of the city life and discover a tranquil island of fruit trees, vineyards, and olive groves.
With more beaches than Mallorca and Ibiza combined, slow-paced Menorca offers many stunning opportunities to soak up the sun, with secluded coves and pellucid waters waiting to greet its visitors. With the greatest concentration of prehistoric monuments in the world, plus cobbled streets and fine architecture, Menorca is rich in enigmatic culture and full of historic beauty. The laid back atmosphere and fine cuisine allows for sumptuous relaxation with opportunities to meander around fig and olive trees which should not be missed.
Although often deemed as a party island, there is an alter ego to the island of Ibiza which appeals to many travellers, where towering cliffs beg to be jumped from into the rippling crystal clear waters. With some of the finest seafood restaurants and a serene atmosphere, explore the sandy beaches and stunning coastline of Ibiza before taking to the old town for a taste of the highlife.
Last but certainly not least is Formentera, the smallest of the four main islands which lies to the south of Ibiza. With beaches as far as the eye can see, Formentera is the Balearic Islands best kept secret. With more visitors arriving by private yacht the tranquil nature of this island is ideal for that ‘get away from it all’ feel.
South of France
The home of the world’s most romantic and charming yacht charter destinations
Made up of iconic destinations and exceptional cruising grounds, there can be no better way of experiencing the south of France from the comfort of a superyacht. Indeed, from the glamorous coastal town of St Tropez to the various hotspots found elsewhere along the French Riviera, the south of France is simply brimming with possibilities.
Neighboured by the superyacht capital of Monaco and populated with some of the world’s best towns and beaches, the South of France is unquestionably one of the finest parts of the Mediterranean to charter a yacht in. Encompassing the French Riviera, an exclusive region otherwise known as the Cote d’Azur, guests are able to visit a number of world renowned attractions which are each located within close proximity to one another. Whilst destinations such as Montpellier and regions like Midi-Pyrenees are situated in the South of France, these are not common cruising grounds for private superyacht charters.
When accessing the fantastic collection of cruising destinations, charter guests typically fly into Nice before getting a transfer to embark their chosen superyacht at one of the popular and well-equipped ports. Antibes, for example, is the home port for some of the world’s largest superyachts and serves as a convenient starting point for an itinerary taking place in the South of France.
The more popular destinations found around the South of France include the chic town of St Tropez, the Bay of Angels close to Nice, and the unblemished beaches which fringe the ancient streets of Cannes. The proximity of Corsica to the coastline which fringes the South of France means that it’s possible to visit the picturesque island during an itinerary in this part of the Mediterranean.
