For the longest time, France has been recognized as one of the world's most popular tourist destinations. The country has a charm and a romance that no other destination can create, and for that reason, millions of people travel from far and wide to enjoy a taste of life as a local. From the wine regions of Bordeaux to the Dordogne Valley's clifftop villages, the French landscape is diverse enough to suit all traveller types. Those who enjoy mountain climbing, winter snow, and outdoor excursions should make their way to the French Alps, while those more accustomed to 14th-century history, charming chateaus, and rolling fields of lavender as far as the eye can see should consider a trip to Provence. France's cities, remote towns, and winter ski-resorts are all impressive, but what about the coast? While history buffs will make a beeline for Brittany's beaches, the traveller who enjoys a little luxury will head straight to the south coast and soak up the Mediterranean sunshine on the French Riviera. Here the likes of Cannes, Nice, and Saint-Tropez dazzle visitors with turquoise waters, soft sand beaches, and million-dollar yachts available for charter. Wherever you hang your hat in France, you're set to be spoiled with phenomenal views, state-of-the-art gastronomy, and spectacular accommodation.
When it comes to the French Riviera, exploring the Mediterranean coastline by boat is an absolute must. Renting a boat might seem a little overwhelming at first. You’ll quickly find you’re spoiled for choice. Small boats, motorboats, sailboats, and larger yachts are all available on the French Riviera. Each boat provides a different way to experience France’s sparkling southern coast. If you want to experience Cannes like a celebrity, consider renting a catamaran for €600/day. You’ll sail the Mediterranean coast at the hands of a private skipper. If a catamaran isn’t your cup of tea, perhaps a luxury boat would suit your needs. Luxury boats are roughly €900/day and include a skipper. If you really want to blend in with the locals, rent a yacht! If you’re looking for something a little more low-key, consider renting a sailboat. Sailboat rentals range from €200/day up to €600/day and include a flexible cancellation policy. Note that a skipper is mandatory for a sailboat. This means all you have to do is step on board, sit back, and enjoy the views. Rental prices vary depending on the size of the boat, the season, and the rental location. We’re here to advise you on the very best boat rentals and can point you in the direction of a rental to suit your needs.
