Where to sail with your yacht charter in France?

There are so many destinations to set sail with your French yacht charter that it can be difficult to decide where you want to go. For this reason, we have compiled a list of the best destinations below:

Paris

When speaking about France we cannot miss on mentioning Paris. The most famous, and one of the most beautiful cities in France, is also a possible destination for your French boat hire. Are you in the mood for a romantic cruise down the Seine? If you thought visiting the Eiffel Tower was impressive, wait until you see it from a boat!

Brittany

In Brittany, a region where boating is a common passion, discover the Emerald Coast, Bréhat and, Ouessant in the North and Quiberon, Belle-Île, and Bénodet towards the South. Also consider sailing around the nautical cities of Saint-Malo, Quimper, Lorient, Brest, Concarneau and Vannes. And don't forget to navigate through the Glénans archipelago on your French yacht charter if the opportunity arises!

French Riviera

On the French Riviera (or Cote d’Azur), you will be able to rent motorboats for day trips as well as sailboats and catamarans of all sizes for your cruises on the Mediterranean Sea from Marseille, Cannes, La Ciotat, etc... Other sailing routes? Set sail to the stunning islands by Hyères, discover the Calanques national park, or even cruise around Billionaires' Bay.

Corsica

On the Isle of Beauty, the change of scenery is unreal. One cannot get tired of sailing to Bonifacio, diving in the Lavezzi archipelago or going to the beautiful Sanguinaires islands. This island encompassing the drastic landscapes of the sea and mountains attracts boaters year after year, from the newcomers to the biggest lover of Corsica.

When is the best time for a yacht charter in France?

The best time to hire a yacht in France is between April and October. If possible, avoid booking your French yacht hire during the months of July and August when tourist crowds are at their highest. The water temperature varies according to the region. In Brittany, it is around 20°C max while in the Mediterranean, the water is generally warmer and closer to 25°C. It is also true that it is better to visit different areas at different times.

For example, the best time to go to Paris is during the springtime, when the weather is still usually quite pleasant, but there are fewer crowds. The south of France and St Tropez are perfect between June and August, but there are a lot of tourists during these months, so you could try the spring and early autumn instead. During this time, there will not only be fewer tourists, but also lower prices.

If you want to visit Bordeaux during your French yacht charter, you should go during the autumn when there are a plethora of wine harvest festivals to go to. However, you can also visit during May and June, when the weather is pleasant, and the wildflowers will be in bloom.

Charter a yacht with a skipper in France

There are no more reasons not to set sail! With Click&Boat, the leading boat hire service, you can book a yacht charter in France with an experienced skipper. Whether you are planning to set sail from Brittany or Corsica, a local expert in your midst will show you the little-known and most beautiful places that you might have not otherwise visited.

You will be able to become a competent crew member and take advantage of learning how to handle a boat and become a true sailor if you wish! At the same time, if you wish to relax, that’s not a problem too. Let your skipper and/or crew take care of everything from navigating, anchoring and docking.

Which boat should you hire in France?

Finding the ideal boat for your cruise is not always easy. Let us give you some tips on how to find the right type of boat according to your needs & desires.

Motorboat

For day rentals, the motorboat is your go-to boat. Contrary to other sailboats and catamarans, hiring a motorboat in France will give you access to many nautical leisure activities such as wakeboarding, tubing, etc. In addition, navigating by motorboat or RIB makes it easier to visit small magical creeks.

Sailboat

Ideal for sailing in all weathers, the sailboat is a sure value for a long cruise. The sailboat is the boat of choice for travellers seeking exploration. A sailboat hire is recommended for cruising along the French Riviera to Corsica or to enjoy the Breton coasts.

Catamaran

For a relaxing cruise with family or friends, we recommend the catamaran. A catamaran rental in France is ideal for typically accommodating a group of up to 12 people on board. For a relaxing cruise along the Mediterranean Sea, it is the most suitable boat as it will allow you to access unique and less accessible landscapes from the land. Furthermore, you are less likely to get seasick in this boat as the double hull structure enhances its stability.

Yacht

Yacht charter in France is a five-star option to enjoy maximum comfort on board during your cruise on the "French Riviera".

Houseboat

Finally, for a river cruise, houseboats prove to be the best choice. Embarking up to 12 people and acting as a floating hotel, the houseboat rental is perfect for slowlife enthusiasts and very quiet navigation. Embark on a houseboat trip even if you don’t have a boat license, as there is a wide choice of boat hires without a license on Click&Boat. Renting a houseboat is the best way to discover the Canal du Midi from Toulouse to Sète.

Prices of Boat hires in France

Boat prices depend on different factors, such as the length and capacity of the boat among others. Regarding Boat hire in France: - Minimum price: from £147.00 per day - Maximum price: from £2,649.00 per day
