Côte d'Azur

Côte d'Azur

From our base in St. Mandrier sur Mer, Port Pin Rolland, on the western end of the Azure Coast, you’ll experience inspiring sailing along some of the earliest Western trade routes. From Marseille to St. Tropez, the Iles d’Or to the Calanques – there are resplendent beaches, majestic flora, and protected aquatic wildlife.

St. Tropez has long been a favorite destination of artists, writers, and celebrities. An early trading port, it became a fashionable resort in the 18th century because of its long, golden beaches and nearby Provencal landscapes – and it still aims to please with fine French cuisine and designer shopping.

Toulon is known for its fountains and opera house. There are sheltered, sandy beaches in Mourillon, and a cable car that runs up Mt. Faron. You can visit the Museum of the French Navy, and visit the oldest resort on the French Riviera.

A must on any Cote d’Azur cruise are the Iles d’ Or. There you’ll find protected anchorages, lovely beaches with plenty of opportunities for lounging and snorkeling, and an 1837 lighthouse.

From our two bases in Marseille (Port Corbières and Vieux Port – “Old Port”), you’re right in the heart of Provence and as close as possible to the Calanques (rocky inlets). Easily accessible by TGV or plane, Marseille benefits from a rich maritime and cultural heritage.

The National Park of the Calanques, created in 2012, spreads betweens the cities of Marseille, Cassis and La Ciotat and covers some 11,100 hectares on the ground and over 140,000 at sea.
