Luxury Travel: Discovered by aristocrats, reveled in by royals and gilded by movie stars; the Riviera is a place where centuries of sophisticated travelers have dipped their toes in the Mediterranean. If you've business to attend to in London, Rome, Paris or any other European city, even just a weekend stop-over gives you time to leave your shoes on the quayside and find out why so many of the rich and famous have been drawn to its charms. Chartering a private yacht is definitely the best way to get a genuine feel for the Riviera. The coastal resorts and villages show off their best side to the sea as this was originally the way most travelers arrived; think of it simply as coming in through the front door!
On the other hand, if you prefer to remain incognito and stay away from the crowds, a yacht provides the perfect escape. Imagine a romantic dinner on deck in a tranquil bay surrounded by forests, without a villa or hotel in sight. Some of the Riviera's most beautiful spots are difficult to reach from any direction other than the sea, and only a yacht affords the privilege of bringing one so close to nature, without compromising on style and comfort. Even if you've only a few days to spare, you'll leave relaxed and refreshed having experienced one of the world's most famous coastlines from a different perspective.
