ST JEAN CAP FERRAT Yacht Charter Guide
Traditional with hints of modern opulence, St Jean Cap Ferrat encompasses the best of the French Riviera. Historically inhabited by the 19th century bourgeoisie, the fantastic climate and wonderful sailing of the cape still attracts the elite from all over the world. Despite its famously hedonistic neighbours, St Jean has escaped the party crowd and has a welcoming and special ambience of an authentic French town with laces of luxury. Still the place to see and be seen, a charter superyacht is the way to make the most of the fantastic climate and beautiful anchorages. Your private hire yacht will take you through cobalt waters along the rocky coastline of the remarkably unspoilt peninsula, where the enchanting night skies are said to offer the best stargazing of the Riviera.
Key Cruising Areas: Situated perfectly in the centre of the Côte d’Azur, there is excellent sailing with beautiful beaches and iconic destinations both north and south of St Jean.
Don’t Miss: In an area of impressive villas, the Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild is possibly the most spectacular, and a must-see. Filled with porcelain, tapestry and 18th century painting collections that rival many museums, the interior is outshone only by the magnificent gardens.
Best Spots for Wining and Dining: The peninsula is a haven of upscale restaurants and Michelin-starred establishments. The Royal Riviera hotel is a cut above the rest, where chef Bruno le Boich will delight with his exquisite and innovative creations, complimented by excellent local wine.
Local Culture: For a feel of modern culture and the eccentric characters that have holidayed on St Jean Cap Ferrat, visit the tattooed house and learn the interesting story behind the walls.
Best Beach: The pretty pebble beach of Paloma is wonderfully peaceful, with crystal clear water filled with fish and superb views of the cliffs of Beaulieu sur Mer. Spend an afternoon here then have an early seafood dinner from the restaurant.
IYC recommends: Explore the scenic roads of the Côte d’Azur in style by renting a vintage car. Head back to the Grand-Hôtel to finish the day with a unique experience – an exclusive astronomy lesson with world-renowned scientist as you dine on a bespoke dinner by Michelin-starred chef Yoric Tièche.
