Day 1 – Cannes, France
Glittering Cannes is the archetypal Mediterranean resort city discovered by wealthy English nobles who came to the sunny south of France to escape their drafty old castles during the dreary British winters. Cannes’ high flying lifestyle has attracted notables and the notorious ever since. Every year, the stars flock to celebrate the Cannes Film Festival at the colossal Palais des Festivals.

 

Day 2 – Monte Carlo, Monaco (Grand Prix)
Monaco is the fabled domain of princes and movie stars. The magnificent Palais du Prince and opulent casinos remind you of an elegant, pre-war era. With more wealth concentrated in one small area than almost any place on earth, this tiny principality retains its gilt edged allure.

 

Day 3 – L’lle Rousse/St. Florent, Corsica – France
Crowded with yachts flying burgees hailing from the world’s most prestigious yacht clubs, the harbour of St. Florent is a regatta of colours. Take an excursion to the peninsula of Cap Corse, where medieval watchtowers dot the cliff tops every few miles.

 

Day 4 – Figari Beach, Bonifacio, Corsica – France
Bonifacio’s almost land-locked harbour is one of the most dramatic, totally protected harbours. It is a bustling port with excellent seafood restaurants, and a modern marina. The ancient citadel town is perched high atop a seemingly impenetrable cliff.

 

Day 5 – Porto, Corsica (Morning), Scandola Nature Reserve (Afternoon Sailing) – France

 

Day 6 – Porquerolles, Iles D’Hyeres, Sanary-Sur-Mer – France
Where the rugged hills of the Massif des Maures subside into the sea, the small island of Porquerolles lies baskingin the eternally blue Mediterranean. The island’s little town was created as a retirement community for Napoleon’s troops – making it the world’s first “Sun City.” Today Porquerolles is a destination for nature lovers, who hike the hills covered in sage, myrtle, and oddly exotic plants to a magnificent white sand beach where a picturesque lighthouse stands guard over the wild shore.

 

Day 7 – St. Tropez (Beach Stop A.M & Town P.M), France
It is said that the most spectacular way to approach the exquisite harbour of St. Tropez is by sea. St. Tropez is a people-watcher’s paradise, so you will also want to explore her famous beaches, bistros and bars. The appropriately named Tahiti Plage is where topless sun tanning started, and whether you prefer to take it off or take it all in, there’s always plenty to see in St. Tropez.

 

Day 8 – Monte Carlo, Monaco
Monaco is the fabled domain of princes and movie stars. The magnificent Palais du Prince and opulent casinos remind you of an elegant, pre-war era. With more wealth concentrated in one small area than almost any place on earth, this tiny principality retains its gilt edged allure.

Star Flyer Ship
The Star Flyer is as fleet as the wind and as graceful as a swan. Launched in 1991 in Ghent, Belgium, Star Flyer was the first clipper ship since 1911 to be granted the certificate of Sailing Passenger Vessel by Lloyd’s Register of Shipping. It is a four-masted, square-rigged barquentine, 360 feet long, with 36,000 square feet of sail and can carry up to 170 passengers and 75 crew members.
