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.
You will return to Menton Garavan marina at around 5pm.
