Private Monaco Luxury Tours: 4 Exclusive Themes
..From yachting to style & gastronomy
Yachting & Luxury Seaside Adventures
Monaco is one of the world’s most-sought-after destinations for yachting, owing to its azure, warm waters, prestigious ports and gorgeous natural surroundings. One way to make your trip to the principality truly exceptional is to charter a private yacht or luxury sailboat– and find out firsthand why the area is so coveted by the world’s ultra-elite travelers.
There are so many ways to enjoy the Mediterranean glamour of the area. You might savour in a gourmet French lunch prepared by your own private onboard chef, sipping a glass of superb wine while you watch the sunset fall over the cliffsides, harbour and sea. You may choose to sail to the breathtaking island of Saint-Honorat, situated directly across from Cannes and home to the centuries-old Lerins Abbey. Here, or on the nearby island island of Saint Marguerite, your expert guide will locate some of the most secretive and idyllic mooring spots on the Cote d’Azur, from which you can swim, snorkel, sea kayak or simply enjoy the silence. After all, isn’t peace, quiet and true privacy part of what defines luxury?
More of a beach and spa enthusiast? Monaco offers many gorgeous beaches and high-end spas. And with over 300 sunny days per year, there’s ample opportunity to enjoy these to the fullest. Your private itinerary might include a stay at exclusive palace hotels complete with private beaches and top-notch spas, from the Fairmont Monte Carlo to the Hermitage.

Couture, jewellry, fine fragrance or antiques: whatever you most desire, Monaco isn’t likely to disappoint.
