The light, the rugged coastline, the turquoise waters and the quaint fishing villages of the French Riviera have been attracting the rich, famous, and creative for centuries. Getting out on the water to admire the views offers a chance to indulge in the local lifestyle and see the region from a different perspective.
This half-day tour, departing in the morning or afternoon aboard a private boat, can be tailored to suit your interests, taking in secluded coves, glamorous resorts or deserted beaches as you wish.
Your private trip begins when you're collected by your driver from your hotel and taken to the port in Saint-Tropez. Initially, you sail toward nearby Pampelonne Beach, but after this the route for your trip is entirely up to you, lasting around four hours. As you depart from Saint-Tropez you can admire the cityscape from the water, with your captain pointing out places of interest on the shoreline or homes of particular note as you go.
Wherever you decide to go, you're likely to see some of the region's glittering resort towns, celebrity villas, white-sand beaches and rugged headlands.
Once you have spent some time cruising along the coast, your skipper will choose a secluded spot to drop anchor. You can swim in the translucent waters if you wish, or sit back and take in the sunset, enjoying a glass of complimentary champagne as you soak up the views.
