Day 1: Cannes
Embark from chic Cannes, the perfect place to start your yacht charter in the glamorous celebrity hotspot, home of the Cannes Film Festival. Cruise over to Les Iles de Lérins; you can see these islands from your yacht, as they are merely minutes away! The waters between the islands are crystal clear, making this an ideal spot for a dip in the shallow and sparkling bay. Climb back onboard and dry off in the sun whilst eating lunch on the aft deck, with a glorious view of the Croisette. Spend the night in the Vieux Port de Cannes where you can wander down the Croisette and overlook the Suquet, visit the high-end designer boutiques before an aperitif at the infamous Intercontinental Carlton terrace. Meander over to the Hotel Martinez, featuring one of the few Michelin starred restaurants in Cannes where you can indulge in the finest cuisine after your exciting day on the water. In the months of July and August, the Fireworks Festival takes place; watch the incredible pyrotechnic show from your yacht!
Day 2: Cannes to Antibes
Depart from Cannes and get your adrenaline pumping whilst trying out new water sports equipment in the bay of Juan Les Pins. Wind down with a lunch at the Hotel Du Cap Eden Roc, a highly renowned hotel with fantastic gastronomy and spectacular views overlooking the bay. Head over to Billionaire's Bay and float around the Cap before spending the night in one of the largest European ports, Antibes. Choose to dine on board with your skilled chef or dine at famed Michelangelo's, a delightful restaurant many celebrities have been known to visit!
Day 3: Antibes to Beaulieu
Depart from Antibes and cruise leisurely over to Villefranche - a stunning, picturesque town with a wonderful beach. This iconic inlet boasts multi-coloured houses, fishermen's boats and charming cafés. Head to one of the beach clubs, we recommend either Paloma Beach or Mala Plage, in the bay of Beaulieu. Head back out onto the sea for an afternoon of fun on the water toys! Retire in the port of Bealieu and dine at La Chevre D'or (the Golden Goat) in Eze, a quaint, historic village which has panoramic views and is a hidden treasure along the French Riviera. This leading hotel and restaurant has magnificent views of St Jean Cap Ferrat and embrace the 360-degree landscapes that you would have cruised earlier today.
Day 4: Beaulieu to Monaco
Today you will anchor off in the bay of Cap D'Ail, next to Mala Plage. Afterwards, continue onto the dazzling sights of Monaco, home of the Monaco Grand Prix. An unbeatable choice would be lunch in Café de Paris, with its great atmosphere and impeccable service. An evening in Monaco bears no limits and you are truly spoilt for choice with nightlife options; Nobu is extremely popular at the Fairmont Hotel, where you can experience the glitz and glamour of Monaco. After some exotic beverages try your luck at the Monte Carlo Casino, before spending your last night on board.
