Posh Travels in the Côte d’Azur

Undeniably chic and tantalizingly beautiful, the Côte d’Azur is one of summer’s hottest seaside destinations.  Exuding timeless elegance with magnificent scenic landscapes that have inspired generations of artists, glimmering shores kissed with water the color of deep blue sapphire, and the presence of joie de vivre that permeates the atmosphere, a luxurious yachting holiday in the French Riviera is sure to leave a lasting impression for years to come.

St. Tropez

Deep blue seas, plunging coastlines, and effortlessly chic glamour sum up the idyllic town of St-Tropez.  Blessed with the French Riviera’s best beaches,  make sure to save time for a lazy afternoon at famed celebrity hangout, the plage de Tahiti, a hike along the waterfront to the sixteenth century fortress La Citadelle de Saint-Tropez, and table-top dancing at Nikki Beach.


For a ritzy yachting getaway nothing compares to cruising along the shores of Cannes boasting of dazzling sites everywhere you look, designer boutiques, fab eateries, chic beach clubs, and glamorous all night fêtes. Take a moment to relish in the finer things in life by checking out the high-end designer shops on Rue d’Antibes, indulging in a decadent party at Le Bâoli, and finishing it up with a night cap at L’Amiral piano bar at the Hotel Martinez.


A much beloved hideaway drenched in sunshine with cool ocean breezes ever-slightly perfumed with the scent of sweet flowers and postcard perfect views, Antibes and the neighboring resort town of Cap d’Antibes are a dream come true.  Soak in the splendor dining on a sumptuous seafood feast at Le Cesar at Plage Keller, hiking the scenic trail up to the steeped-in-history chapel of Nôtre Dame des Amoureux, and visiting the superb Musée Picasso housed inside the Château Grimaldi which overlooks the sea.


Nice is a picturesque city with a pulsing cosmopolitan energy, exceptional architecture, and a vibrant ever-evolving art, cultural, dining, and nightlife scene.  Don’t miss a visit to the Musée Matisse, a stroll along the oceanfront Promenade des Anglais, and a sampling of the amazing La Daube Niçoise regional dish.


One of the most picturesque towns of the Mediterranean, the serene fishing village of Villefranche-sur-Mer boasts of beautiful natural ports bordered by lovely pastel-colored houses, long sand-pebble beaches, and a medieval town center surrounded by windy  cobblestone streets.  Spend a few hours lounging in the sun at Les Marinières Beach, savoring a bouillabaisse lunch at La Mere Germaine, and strolling the grounds of the 16th-century Citadelle St-Elme.
