What season is the best to charter a yacht in France?

Typically, the most popular time to charter a yacht in France is during July and August. However, the ideal time to visit France for a boat hire is dependent on your preferences and the region. For example, if you prefer to avoid crowds and peak prices while still enjoying the warm summer weather, we recommend visiting the country during June and September.

It is also important to consider where you would like to have your boat holiday in France. For example, the south of France such as Marseille and Nice have beautiful weather from spring to autumn, so anytime in this Mediterranean climate will be pleasant. Moreover, the water temperatures during the summer are around 25 degrees Celsius, perfect for a refreshing dip to cool off after sunbathing. In contrast, northern locations like Brittany have water from the Atlantic Ocean, reaching approximately 20 degrees Celsius in the summer.

Where to hire a boat in France?

When it comes to hiring a boat in France, there are various marinas and ports throughout the country. One notable marina is located in Marseille. Situated in the south of France, Marseille is known for its beautiful weather and Mediterranean climate. The marina in Marseille provides excellent facilities for boat hire, allowing you to explore the stunning coastline and nearby islands. Another popular destination is Nice, also located in the south of France. Nice offers a charming setting with its picturesque town and turquoise Mediterranean waters. The marina in Nice offers boat hire services, providing an ideal starting point for a memorable boating holiday.

The facilities available at these marinas include well-equipped docking areas, secure berths, and professional staff to assist you during your boat hire experience.

Where to sail on your yacht charter in France?

France has such a diverse landscape that it can be difficult to know where to go and what to see. This is why we have compiled a list of some of the best boating destinations. If you want to visit during the off-season, try to visit beautiful coastal towns such as Nice or during the spring! You can witness:

Paris

One cannot mention France without mentioning its capital, Paris. Also known as the city of love. Hire a boat in the river Seine for a romantic tour of the city. You can enjoy a box of macarons or croissants in the afternoon before making your way to the sparkling Eiffel Tower in the evening.

Brittany

Another stop on your yacht charter holiday in France will have to include Brittany, the northwestern region of the country. Here, sailing and fishing are extremely popular, making it a great spot to spend your boating holiday. You can explore the refreshing breeze of the Emerald Coast. If you aren’t sure where to begin, we recommend heading to Ouessant in the north and Quiberon or Belle-Ile in the south.

French Riviera

Another must-see in France is the French Riviera, also known as Cote d’Azur. This coastal region in the south of France extends over 100 miles of land, inviting the most luxurious of tourists. You can discover the chic cities of Monte Carlo, Nice, and St Tropez during the summer for an experience like no other. If you visit around May, you may even run into a few celebrities attending the Cannes Film Festival! What’s more, is that you can visit this destination during the spring for its flower festivals. Welcome the start of spring in Nice with the Battle of Flowers festival. The streets are lined with vibrant flowers and parades, making it one of the most eagerly anticipated events of the year. Similarly, you can witness the Mimosa Festival along eight municipalities between Marseille and Nice with more parades and beautiful floral displays.

Bordeaux

If you can’t find the time to visit France during the summer, then Bordeaux is the perfect autumn destination. The beautiful greenery around the west coast fades into golden shades of orange and red as the seasons turn. Then, you can disembark from your boat hire and explore and discover one of France's biggest attractions - wine! Tour a vineyard and learn all about the traditional methods of making and storing this popular beverage. Near Bordeaux, you can also explore France’s Atlantic coast. Visit the chic seaside resort of Arcachon, the stunning Ile de Ré or the pine tree forests of the Landes from the deck of a boat!

There are also plenty of other destinations in France waiting to be explored with your yacht charter! Visit one of the many canals and rivers in the southwestern Occitanie region, known for the famous Canal du Midi. If you fancy exploring sandy beaches, a yacht rental in Corsica is just for you! Book your next exclusive yacht charter in France with Click&Boat now!

Hire a boat with or without a skipper?

It is possible to book a bareboat rental in France as long as you meet the legal requirements for sailing and the boat owner allows you to. This being said, there are many advantages to having a skipper on board with you instead of driving the boat yourself. For instance, a skipper will manage all of the technical aspects of the boat including the sailing, docking, and anchoring. Above this, they will ensure that it is maintained properly with cleaning. This makes for a comfortable and relaxing experience for you. Moreover, the skipper will be familiar with regional waters, so they can show you all the secret areas that only locals know about. Whether you opt for a skippered yacht charter in South of France or in other regions, we can guarantee that you will have a relaxing trip.
