Cannes Yacht Rental Guide

6 February 2016

Allied Yachting provides the following Cannes yacht rental guide, useful if you’re looking for yacht charters in – or departing from – our home-port:

Backed by gentle hills and flanked to the southwest by the rugged cliffs and wild rivers of the Corniche de l’Esterel, the exuberant seaside town of Cannes has become an epicurean haven for those looking to escape in unrivalled luxury. Famed for its Fifties status as a millionaires playground and the glittering annual film festival, it still retains the charm, glamour and allure of its heyday.

Synonymous with the high life, few spots better symbolize the opulence of Cannes than La Croisette, its glamorous seaside boulevard with its boutique studded promenade aligned on the shore. Bordered by contrasting beauty, on one side the glistening sea laps enchanting beaches back-dropped by towering cliffs in the distance. On the other intimate restaurants, chic café-bistros and luxurious palace-hotels lure in the fortunate departing their yacht charters in Cannes aboard superyachts for evenings under the world famous Cannes fireworks and other extravagant festivities.

La Croisette Boulevard is best appreciated from the heights of Cannes’s Old Town, Le Suquet, where the remains of the fortified tower still stand, along with the 12th century Chapel of St. Anne. The warmth of the Mediterranean sun beats down on the ever brassy and vibrant streets with a fantastic choice of bistros and haute cuisine restaurants along the Rue St. Antoine. Explore the leafy Quartier des Anglais, appreciate the contemporary art set in a 19th century mansion at La Malmaison or take a day-boat trip to the nearby Islands of Sainte Marguerite and Saint Honorat.

There is more to Cannes than style and glamour and seeing the magnificent red hills of the Esterel hills rising up dramatically in the distance from the comfort of one of our yacht charters in Cannes as you approach its dazzling coastline, is a scene to behold. Well protected and most of the time In calm conditions, the bay of Cannes is the perfect place to moor, swim, dive and soak up the sun before stepping ashore to enjoy the luxurious atmosphere of our iconic French Riviera seaside resort.

Every year, Cannes hosts world-renowned events like the International Film Festival at the Palais des Festivals. The two marinas of Cannes, Port Canto and the Old Port, form the perfect setting for a unique corporate Cannes yacht rental in spectacular surroundings.

Spend the afternoon at the colorful Saturday market in the La Bocca district and stock up on the local products including olive oil, Provencal herbs and lavender, honey and olive oil soaps, which you will find along the rue Meynadier.
