Ile de Porquerolles
After a night out, you will wake up to the relaxing sound of the sea at L'ile De Porquerolles: leaving Saint-Tropez glamour far behind, the yacht will cruise across the Gulf of Hyères to Porquerolles, a calm island whose unspoilt natural beauty is protected by law and where cars are banned. Take the tender ashore to Notre Dame beach for a lazy morning on the sands, and explore the cliffs on the south shore where the sea fades from the brightest turquoise to sapphire blue. Dine at the Michelin-starred Restaurant L’Olivier in the wonderfully traditional hotel of Le Mas du Langoustier, sampling fine Provençal cuisine accompanied by a bottle of the local wine Domaine de l’Ile de Porquerolles.
Get under way early for the cruise to Villefranche-sur-Mer, and lunch on board with a picturesque sight of the buildings of this ancient village. Famous for the works of Jean Cocteau, visit La Chapelle St-Pierre, and take a stroll down the medieval streets, stairways and squares of this 14th century town, guarded by the Fort Saint-Elme. Then head back down to the quayside to dine on la bouillabaisse at La Mère Germaine.
St-Jean-Cap-Ferrat offers pretty anchorages on either side of this peninsula, filled with spectacular villas adorning the coast. Take the tender in to Paloma or Plage de Passable beach clubs that your charter advisors will have booked for you and enjoy a long, relaxing lunch and lazy afternoon topped by dinner at Grand Hotel du Cap Ferrat's Le Cap restaurant.
End on a high note in Monaco: breakfast on board as you head back to Monaco. If your Charter coincides with the Monaco Grand Prix when the buzz, noise and excitement reach fever pitch, be ready to party like there is no tomorrow. If hard core partying is not your thing, we recommend you end your South of France yacht charter with an evening cocktail at Hotel de Paris's American Bar followed by an exquisite dinner at Le Louis XV-Alain Ducasse.
