The French Riviera, one of the best places to charter luxury yachts

The Côte d’Azur, also known as the French Riviera, is the Mediterranean coastline of the southeastern corner of France, including the sovereign state of Monaco. There is no official boundary, but it is usually considered to extend from the Italian border in the east to Saint Tropez, Hyères, Toulon or Cassis in the west. Nice is the largest city.
Perhaps the most enduringly prestigious holiday destination, the Côte d’Azur combines extraordinary natural beauty, warm climate, French cuisine, finest local wines and a worldwide reputation for high style.
The French Riviera is a major yachting and cruising area with several marinas along its coast. According to the Côte d’Azur Economic Development Agency, each year the Riviera hosts 50% of the world’s superyacht fleet, with 90% of all superyachts visiting the region’s coast at least once in their lifetime.
The region enjoys 300 days of sunshine per year, 115 kilometres (71 mi) of coastline and beaches, 18 golf courses, 14 ski resorts and 3,000 restaurants.
The climate and vivid colours of the Mediterranean have attracted many famous artists during the course of the 19th and 20th century, including Paul Cezanne, Marc Chagall and Claude Monet. The Cannes Film Festival was launched in September 1946, marking the return of French cinema to world screens.
