Preferred Itineraries

Corsica Tour

The richness of the Corsican landscape makes every attempt to describe very difficult, because there are so many various splendours which come close together or become intermingled between marine blue sky and heavenly horizon ; such as the lofty peaks, valleys worthy of a legend, wild or harmonious gulfs, sheltered inlets, placid or wild beaches, cliffs sculpted by men and spindrift, hillsides cut out for vines and the olive tree.

Corsica Tour
Five Lands

A corner of Liguria, between La Spezia and Levanto, where generations worked to create a unique scenery in the world, with its terraces dipping above the sea sustained by thousands miles of “ dry-walls.( UNESCO ). The sea and land of the Cinque Terre together, form a unique and suggestive landscape: mountains, that reach 815 meters, descend suddenly towards the sea, their heights range from 500 to 2,500 meters. So that the terraces downgrade till underwater, reaching remarkable depths. Along the enchanting coast cliffs and precipices alternate on the sea, bays, small beaches and ravines between the rocks, caves: A unique destination for Italian Riviera sailing yacht Cruise.

Five Lands
French Riviera

The Côte d'Azur (French Riviera): luxury, peace and quiet... The Côte d'Azur - a piece of Provence crossed with Italy - is the quintessence of seaside tourism. Stretching from Bandol to Menton, from the Var to the Alpes-Maritimes, are 300 km (186 miles) of coastline with a succession of sand and pebble beaches, magnificent headlands and unspoilt islands, mythical towns and enchanting resorts. It is hardly surprising that between the late 19th century and early 20th century, it became the wintering place for European aristocracy.

French Riviera
Gulf of Poets

By the extreme land of the eastern Liguria, where the city of La Spezia arises, between the blue of the sea and the green bush of the coast, the Gulf of Poets shows its small villages full of grace, like Portovenere, Le Grazie, Lerici, Tellaro, Fiascherino, and the fascinating islands of Palmaria Tino and Tinetto. The Gulf of the Poets has always been a prestigious sailing charters destination for the atmosphere, climate, art, history, traditions and cuisine. A coast of many colours, evocative and unique where you can have a unique sailing vacation in the Italian Riviera. Villages overlooking the sea, green hills and crystal clear water. The ideal environment for a romantic wedding and honeymoon in the Italian Riviera.

Gulf of Poets
Italian Riviera

Italian Riviera is an arc shaped region, a long narrow curved stretch of coastline tightened between mounts and sea and its chief town Genoa, divides nearly to half this great arc in two distinguished parts: the Riviera Ligure di Levante (Eastern Coast) and the Riviera Ligure di Ponente (Western Coast). All the coastal villages in the Liguria Riviera look painted by a great artist: the little houses set in an intense blue color of the sea and sky and tightened next to each other, create a semicircle around the small port in which the boats of the fishermen are berthed. The two coasts of Liguria are the most renowned tourist resorts in Italy.

Italian Riviera
North Sardinia

The North Sardina is a place of unique beauty and one of the top destination for your sailing vacation in all the Mediterranean Sea. This region has some of the best sites to visit by sea of all Italian coasts. The Emerald coast with the rich towns of Porto Cervo and Porto Rotondo.

Then the Asinara National Park with its world-famous "Pelosa Beach" in Stintino: this part of Sardinia is known all over the world as a territory of rare beauty and as a luxury yacht charter top destination.

North Sardinia
Tuscan Archipelago

It is told that the Venus of the Tyrrhenian sea while emerging from the waters of our sea to hug the horizon let slip seven pearls from her necklace which adorned her white neck. They transformed themselves in the islands of the Tuscan Archipelago : Gorgona, Capraia, Elba, Pianosa, Montecristo, Giglio and Giannutri. You can enjoy the uniqueness, the beauty of these pearls in every season.
