Provence & Cote d’Azur
Marseilles is the gateway to what is perhaps the most glamorous cruising ground in the world and is worth the stop if only to see the sights around the Vieux Port, the ancient heart of the city.
You either love or hate Saint-Tropez. Once a little fishing village with an attractive façade of houses and a quay lined with fishing boats, it is today the playground of squillionaires, whose gleaming white motor yachts moor fender-to-fender, blocking the view.
The coastline is spectacular anywhere but sailing along the southern side of Corsica the land rises until the towering cliffs at Bonifacio, which must rank as one of the most unforgettable harbour entrances to be found anywhere.
