Delight in a Leisurely Adventure

From the Gothic and Baroque architecture of the less-traveled Palamós to the glamorous and ultra-fashionable Cannes, this Epicurean Expedition brings you to hidden gems, iconic scenes and everything in between. Departing late from Saint-Tropez, go beyond the city’s legendary nightlife and enjoy an evening vineyard tour for a countryside sunset with a glass of local wine in hand. In the charming town of Propriano, a walk around the picturesque harbor into town brings you through colorful houses, streets lined with palm trees and 19th-century architecture. Nestled within the Balagne hills, L’Île-Rousse offers a laid-back atmosphere away from the hustle of larger towns. Explore hidden coves around L’Île-Rousse, Saint-Tropez and Cannes with opportunities to play with marina water toys directly from the yacht.
