Itinerary Information

Day 1: Cannes

Glittering Cannes is the archetypal Mediterranean resort city discovered by wealthy English nobles who came to the sunny south of France to escape their drafty old castles during the dreary British winters. Cannes’ high flying lifestyle has attracted notables and the notorious ever since. Every year, the stars flock to celebrate the Cannes Film Festival at the colossal Palais des Festivals.

Day 2: Portofino

Portofino is a fishing village on the Italian Riveria coastline. It's pastel-coloured houses, luxury boutiques and seafood restaurants surround its Piazzetta, a small cobbled square overlooking the harbor, which is lined with super-yachts. A short walk takes you up to the Church of St. George, a church with a cool, plain interior, dramatically situated on the narrow neck of the Portofino headland. As a lookout point, and probably as a site of religious significance, the spot goes back thousands of years.

Day 3: L'ile Rousse, Corsica

Crowded with yachts flying burgees hailing from the world's most prestigious yacht clubs, the harbour of St. Florent is a regatta of colours. Take an excursion to the peninsula of Cap Corse, where medieval watchtowers dot the cliff tops every few miles.

Day 4: Calvi, Corsica

Napoleon once said that he could recognize his native island blindfolded because of the wonderful perfume of the maquis. Approaching by sea, it is the first thing you experience about Corsica. The second is its wild and mountainous landscape. Nearby are secluded beaches and the eerie Grottes des Veaux Marins, offering fantastic diving opportunities.

Day 5: Plage D'arone, Corsica

Arone is one of the most beautiful beaches in Corsica. Surrounded by pink rocks and scrub this long soft golden sandy beach stretches for 750 metres. There are plenty of amenities including bars and restaurants. The water is crystal clear, calm and warm, but the main attraction of the beach is that it is never crowded.

Day 6: Porquerolles, Iles d'Hyeres

Porquerolles is a small crescent shaped island that is popular with cyclists. On the southern side the coast is made up of steep cliffs and secluded creeks only accessible to hikers and on the northern side you will find fine sand beaches and clear turquoise waters. A large area enjoys National Park status so the island is beautiful, calm and unspoilt.

Day 7: St. Tropez beach and St. Tropez port

It is said that the most spectacular way to approach the exquisite harbor of St. Tropez is by sea. St. Tropez is a people-watcher’s paradise, so you will also want to explore her famous beaches, bistros and bars. The appropriately named Tahiti Plage is where topless sun tanning started, and whether you prefer to take it off or take it all in, there’s always plenty to see in St. Tropez.

Day 8: Cannes

Glittering Cannes is the archetypal Mediterranean resort city discovered by wealthy English nobles who came to the sunny south of France to escape their drafty old castles during the dreary British winters. Cannes’ high flying lifestyle has attracted notables and the notorious ever since. Every year, the stars flock to celebrate the Cannes Film Festival at the colossal Palais des Festivals.
