Itinerary

Meet your group this morning before transferring to the boat. Or perhaps arrive a few days earlier to explore this beautiful port city.
It’s time to set sail – and what better way to experience France than from the relaxing viewpoint of the Mediterranean. Our first destination is the Iles d’Hyeres Archipelago and a group of islands that is rich in woodlands, idyllic beaches, walking paths and Roman history. Swim and snorkel in the clear waters and soak in the natural beauty and culture of this unique area. Sail to Cavalaire-sur Mer, a delightful town that is more modest than it's neighbour and a great place to see the traditional side of the Cote d'Azur. Saint Tropez is next on the cards – a summer playground for the rich and famous that has a great deal of charm once you delve behind the glamour. Get among the action at a café or bar, take to the coastal walking trails or chill out in the quieter La Ponche. Then leave the coast behind and discover the Iles de Lerins – a small group of islands with gorgeous beaches, clear water and lots of history. Dine at a small restaurant run by monks who serve wine grown in their vineyards, discover the island that hosted the ‘man in the iron mask’ and embrace the Mediterranean lifestyle while relaxing on the beach. Close to Cannes, sail back to the French coast and explore this much-lauded city. The beauty of sailing is that each day is unique and, while we have a destination to reach, if the weather changes or something takes the group’s fancy, we are flexible on the day's itinerary.
Finish up this unique sailing adventure this morning in delightful Nice. We recommend spending a few more days here, as it’s a vivacious city well worth exploring.
