In case we didn’t satisfy you with our available yacht charter options, or you were wondering if there was a web error that didn’t put thru some beloved sailing destinations like the South of France, well, prepare yourself to take a sneak peek at what is coming and what we are preparing for you…
The beautiful South-France resorts like Bormes-les-Mimosas or Saint Mandrier-sur-mer will enable you to discover that French ‘je ne sais quoi’ and to hop between the ports of the enchanting Côte d’Azur.
Right at the centre of the French Riviera you’ll find Bormes-les-Mimosas, a Provençal village with delightful natural scenery that will offer you a peaceful break. Just to give you an idea of the stunning natural views… its name denotes the sunny one, as it derives from its shiny mimosa trees. Not only is it full of beauty for its forested mountains and extensive beaches that allow a wide range of watersports, but for its history as well. It is surrounded by astonishing fortresses such as the historical fort de Brégançon, which has been the holiday home for the president of the French Republic since 1968. So now you know where to go if you feel like starting off your sailing trip to the Côte d’Azur from a destination that meets the high standards of a president.
The petit port of Saint Mandrier-sur-mer is set on a peninsula right in front of Toulon, enabling you to tour around further attractions nearby. Though you don’t need to go that far, Saint Mandrier is surrounded by several stunning shores full of attractive and varied sea life that will definitely enhance your diving experience and watersport activities. In addition, it has quite a few hot spots like the Cap Cépet lighthouse or the French-Italian cemetery where some soldiers of the First World War rest. Or else, enjoy a walk on the sentier douanier track whilst you admire the gorgeous green view thanks to the hills that bound the port.
Don’t worry, we didn’t miss the opportunity to offer you other ports near Italy, still with the charm of a French isle.
