Yacht & Catamaran Charter in Saint Tropez, France
Looking to sail from Saint Tropez? Search to find and book your ideal boat, or read everything you need to know: prevailing winds, where to sail, how to get there and more!
If you're looking for a new sailing experience, then sailing in the French Riviera might be just the thing for you - aside from the incredible beauty of the place, there is possibly nothing more decadent that turning up at some of the hottest tourist destinations in the world in your own private yacht or catamaran. It's the sort of thing you'd expect of film stars and the like, but, whilst it is a little more expensive that sailing elsewhere, it's also good value for the incredible experiences you can have.
From glorious Saint Tropez - famous for its stellar beaches, beach bars and a champagne-fuelled party atmosphere beloved of royalty, celebrities and business tycoons - it's possible to sail to join the in-crowd at mesmerising Cannes, to moor up in the delightful old town of Nice ("Oh, you've been there? We sailed there in our yacht"), and thrilling Monaco, a city which doesn't sleep, and where you're likely to hang out with F1 stars and James Bond. All exceptional destinations, with fine food (there are 26 restaurants in the area with at least one Michelin star!), fine wine, and beautiful and fashionable people. There's also lively Antibes and historic Saint Raphael, amongst many others.
It's not just about the big-hitting destinations though - there are plenty of other places to explore, including the chance to get off the beaten track - like the Iles de Hyeres, home of a National park to protect nature and wildlife, where you'll find quiet bays and stunning scenery. There really is something for everyone here, and the sunshine and easy sailing conditions make it the ideal place for you to sail next!
There's so many great places to head to near Saint Tropez that it would be impossible to even see them all in a week, so you'd likely head South to the the peace and tranquillity of the Iles de Hyeres or northwards to Cannes, Nice and Monaco and Antibes. If you has the boat for longer, it would also be possible to sail as far as idyllic Portofino in Italy!
Wherever you go, you'll find great facilities, sunshine, stunning views, outstanding food and fine wine - in short, all the ingredients you will need to have a memorable holiday (assuming you have the right crew to share it with).

What is the wind like?
There is no prevailing wind in this part of the Mediterranean, though wind is more slightly more likely to arrive from the North-east or North-west.
From May to September, wind speeds are generally 5-15 knots and easy to navigate, though there are occasional days when Mistral winds roll down the nearby mountains at high speed, so it is worth checking the forecast regularly. The Mistral winds are stronger and more regular in the off-season and winter, when winds can reach Force 9.
