St. Tropez

Pampelonne

No rush, no stress, take a long leisurely breakfast, sunbathe and then consider

your options. At 30 knots a sports yacht could do it in… two hours. At 60 metres,

a motor yacht might take four hours. Sail is about grace, not pace, so allow for five

hours. But with so many places to stop along the way and so much to do in those

places, it could take ten days. Or more.

The fashionable crowd is what makes the fascinating scene of St Tropez. Drop

anchor off Pampelonne for lunch in the beach clubs. Head back towards the

Porquerolles Islands for some of the best scuba diving in the entire Mediterranean.

Cannes is buzzing, especially between Iles de Lerins where so many top yachts

anchor for the day. Villefranche and Cap Ferrat are either side of one of the world’s

most exclusive penisulas. A small strip of land full of restaurants, places to wander

and browse. Beauty and the best. Sail on to Monte Carlo and enter the harbour with

its overwhelming sense of sophistication and glamour.

It is not how long it takes, it is how good it is along the way.

We are often asked how long it takes to get from St Tropez to

Monte Carlo. The answer is simple – as long as you like.
