France, Corsica, Sardinia

Known for its glam, high-end, and luxury reputation, Southern France, also known as the South of France or colloquially known in French as Le Midi, is nothing short of spectacular. From Provence to the Mediterranean coast, Le Midi is filled with beauty, history, cuisine, and culture. It is home to the famous Cannes Film Festival, the playground of the rich and famous, and the location of numerous Michelin star restaurants, medieval towns, and even secluded spots and islands for those who wish to escape it all. Explore these islands and enjoy the waters with our yacht charters in France.

The French Riviera, aka Côte d’Azur, is known as one of the most luxurious and beautiful places in Europe. It is home to several cities, including Nice and Cannes, natural parks, Roman ruins, medieval villages, and whale watching. But if you are looking to beat the summer crowd, why not take a Sardinia or Corsica yacht charter? You can discover the beauty of the waters yourself with French Riviera yacht charters. Located around 105 miles from mainland France is the island of Corsica, the fourth largest island in the Mediterranean. This island holds a profound secret; it is stunning and often overlooked by tourists. Take the time to enjoy the Mediterranean island with a Corsica yacht charter. Nicknamed the Island of Beauty, it is known for its landscapes, stone villages, dramatic gorges, and red cliffs that plunge into sapphire-blue waters. It is also home to the Scandola reserve, a popular scuba diving location.
