Cap Ferret, Eden Roc

The Grill at the Hotel du Cap Eden Roc is a decadent culinary and cultural experience with a view you’ll never forget. Located at the famed Hotel du Cap on the Cote d’Azur, the Grill sits right on the water. (There is also a more formal dining room upstairs inside the hotel, and a Champagne Bar on the roof.) This means private yacht charter visitors can anchor directly in front of the restaurant!

For your lunch or dinner reservation, head ashore in the ship’s tender to The Grill’s private tender dock right at the restaurant. Enjoy a fine cocktail and a classic French meal while gazing at your yacht at anchor in the midst of an amazing view. There is much more to do in Antibes; this guide can be helpful in planning out a full day ashore.

The French Riviera

The French Riviera

The French Riviera boasts so much more than gorgeous beaches. Of course, you can spend every single day on the beach and feel like you’ve had a fantastic vacation when visiting Antibes. For the explorer, however, there are also not-to-be-missed excursions and adventures at hand. The private yacht charter traveler who loves a deep dive into history can climb up to Fort Carre. There you will see the 16th-century building used as a prison (for notables including Napoleon Bonaparte during the French Revolution) and learn more about warfare in that era. Fort Carre is located in Antibes Old Town, where you can feast on mussels in white wine and crepes, and buy a tourist trinket or two, or a handful of Provence lavender.

We also recommend following this superyacht insider itinerary for the South of France; it’s a bucket-list trip. The Cap d’Antibes, for example, is a sightseeing spot worth its weight in gold, lined with gardens, fabulous estates, and gorgeous ocean views.

Pamplonne Beach and Club 55 in San Tropez

In 1955, And God Created Woman was filmed on little-known Pampelonne Beach in Saint-Tropez, starring an equally little-known actress, Brigitte Bardot. The film was a salacious smash hit both in France and across the world. It launched Bardot into superstardom along with Saint Tropez. Just a humble set of cottages at the time, Le Club 55 also grew into one of the hottest beach clubs in existence. To learn more about how both Bardot and Le Club 55 became legends, click here.

Beyond the Red Carpet – Traveling in Cannes

2019-12-07T14:30:59-05:00

Cannes, France

When someone mentions Cannes, France, does your mind go straight to the eponymous film festival? You’re not alone. Starlets in couture aside, this city is a vibrant and welcoming hotspot for any tourist. If you plan to visit in winter, spring, summer, or fall, this guide includes recommendations for everything from beaches to food and drinks. 

Personally, we recommend taking a private yacht charter to this glamorous seaside location. The French Riviera comes alive from the deck of your luxury yacht. You can visit a cabaret, where glam meets camp for a night that you will never forget. Otherwise, if an espresso and a croissant at a seaside cafe is what you’re looking for, Cannes has it all avec panache. And for those that do want to see the Red Carpet and everyone gliding down the ribbon of red to the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès, one of the best views is from an upper deck of a luxury charter yacht anchored right off of Pointe Croisette while your crew waits on you hand and foot. We can provide even more helpful travel tips to plan your luxury Cannes vacation today.
