For sheer variety of culture and fun, the attractions of the Western Mediterranean cannot be beaten. An unhurried cruise on a luxury yacht charter is the perfect opportunity to sample an eclectic choice of unique destinations. The effortless Spanish style of Barcelona and Valencia, with their stunning architecture, nightlife, beautiful beaches, and cuisine ranked best in the world.
The French Riviera needs little introduction as the foaming waves crash onto the angular, jagged coast. It is a beautiful backdrop with small coves and enticing beaches. All in contrast to some of the most famous resorts dotted further along the coast including St Tropez, Cannes and Nice. For sheer opulence and a surprisingly relaxed vibe, Monaco offers top-end shopping and memorable encounters.
If the frenetic pace proves too much return to chill in the sanctuary of your yacht and embark on your next adventure. Maybe approach the Italian island of Sardinia with its rolling mountains, plentiful beaches, crystal waters and where the people are friendly and traditional. The French Island of Corsica is close by with traditional cuisine and superb walks through mountainous landscapes, glacial lakes, and gorges.
Further east sample the effortless style of the Italian Ligurian coast. Photogenic coastal towns such as Genoa and Portofino make stunning panoramas you glide into the harbour. It’s a pace of life you will come to cherish.
