Our French Sailboat Experience includes a 3 night stay at the stunning and exquisite 5* Chateau Chevre d’Or hotel in the medieval village of Eze. Your Sailing Experience will be a relaxing day out where all you need to do is sit back and enjoy the views of the French Riviera and the Mediterranean. It is a fully inclusive day trip and your English speaking Captain will take the best care of you.
On our Full Day French Sailboat Experience, you will stay for 3 nights in the 5* Chevre d’Or Hotel in Eze Village, located between Nice and Monaco on the French Riviera.
You will have private car transfers to Menton to join the Sailboat for a full day of fun and sightseeing including all food and drink onboard as well as the return transfer to Eze at the end of the day.
Eze village is one of the most picturesque spots along the French Riviera. Perched in an “Eagle’s nest” at the height of an imposing and superb cliff, the village and its light ochre church can be seen from afar. Once inside, you will discover a small Provencal village filled with charm, offering a panoramic view of the sea and coast-line.
Small narrow roads, archways and superbly restored stone houses, shady squares, refreshing ancient fountains… you will soon be seduced by the marvels of Eze. The village is so beautiful, it’s hard to believe you have not stumbled onto a movie set… !
Nature is all around you at Château de la Chèvre d’Or Hotel. There are various gardens filled with sculptures, fountains, waterfalls, flowers, herbs, trees and shrubs. The area is perfumed with the scents of Jasmine, Bougainvillea and Roses. The magnificent colours create a framework that blends into the horizon and the sea.
The many terraces provide you with lots of places to completely relax. Fresh and tranquil spots, which all have an incredible view over the Mediterranean and the hillsides, illuminated by sunlight. All the pastel colours melt together to form a magical setting.
La Chèvre d’Or Gourmet Restaurant – 2 Michelin stars ensure you will have fantastic meals during your stay.
Departure from Menton
Your car will pick you up from your hotel and take you to Menton Garavan Marina around 10:00 for a Captain’s Welcome; your Captain is a charming English man whose knowledge of the Riviera is second to none!
After setting sail you will pass through Italian waters, only 5 mins away, and then head to the old Port of Menton for photos. Snacks and drinks are provided as you cross the Bay of Menton and sail around Cap Martin, aiming for Monaco including Larvotto Beach, Port Hercule and the beautiful Oceanographic Museum for photo opportunities.
You will then pass by Cap d’Ail, Cap Rognoso and round Cap Mala to one of the cote d’Azur’s best kept secrets Plage Mala in the Baie de St Laurent for lunch and the opportunity for a swim and relax or have fun on the inflatables!
After a 2 course lunch with wine you will retrace the route hugging the coast, allowing you to see the beautiful eastern Riviera towns from the sea and close enough to the coast to see the incredible villas hidden along the hillsides. Through the year some of the world’s most famous yachts are at anchor along this stretch of coastline and your Captain will pass close enough for photo opportunities.
On your approach to the marina your Captain will open a bottle of Champagne and toast the day and the making of new friends.

“From the very moment we contacted the InspireMeTravel team to arrange our honeymoon to India (New Delhi) and Sri Lanka (The Cape Weligama) the service far exceeded our expectations. The professionalism of providing us with a proposal detailing the entire trip from the moment we left the UK, flights, hotels, excursions, internal transfers and the flight back home were amazing. As part of the service we were provided with a local mobile phone and a representative should we need to contact anyone, this was a true first class service. We had a complication due to weather conditions that our sea plane was not able to fly and again, without any interruption to our holiday the InspireMeTravel team took care of everything keeping in contact with us the entire time. We have used them for all our holidays since our honeymoon, they will not disappoint. Well done to Karen and Jill in particular.”
"In my opinion, one of the best wines I’ve ever tasted! Such a stunning hotel with gorgeous views of the vineyards that this hotel is set in and only 15 mins drive to North Cyprus’ harbour, which offers lovely restaurants surrounding it so you can experience more of the tasty North Cypriot cuisine.
The rooms in the hotel are First Class with different themes for each and the only hotel In North Cyprus with its own wine. Definitely recommend."
"If you want to see an opera with the magical atmosphere and feel as if you are actually with the characters then go to the Opera Arena in Verona. Such an amazing experience. Verona also has the Romeo and Juliet museum where you can actually stand in Juliets Courtyard and in her balcony. Definitely a must."
"What a fantastic way to see all the main sites of Rome AND the Vatican. With top historians who have amazing knowledge of this beautiful City. Would definitely recommend it."
"I joined Inspire Me Travel group tour of the famous Mona Lisa’s family home. The landscape features in the background of the famous Mona Lisa painting – how amazing is that! First impressions from the group was “Wow”, the ambience, the scenery, the home was breathtakingly beautiful. We were free to walk around the beautiful gardens and then joined a wine tour, which was very informative. The group were then shown to our outside dining table on the terrace, where we could marvel at the view whilst sampling the wines which accompanied our lunch. There is a shop where you can buy wines and other gifts, what an opportunity to take a bottle of Mona Lisa wine home with you, so you can share this truly special experience with your friends! I would highly recommend booking this tour with Inspire Me Travel. It was so very well organised."
"I joined Inspire Me Travel group tour of the Paris Jazz clubs in February this year. What a truly wonderful experience. Our first night was at Ducs des Lombard, for the truly discerning jazz enthusiast, it did not disappoint. The following evening was at the famous Caveau de la Huchette in the Latin Quarter; grab a seat and listen to the band; watch some amazing dancers and join in. It had a great atmosphere and was super friendly. Inspire Me Travel also organised wonderful restaurants (to suit our budget) close to the jazz venues. I would highly recommend booking with Inspire Me Travel they tick all the boxes!"
