BOAT/SAILING TOUR N°1 :

             GETAWAY TO THE HOLY ISLANDS

SAILBOAT - ISLANDS & PARADISE - NATURAL PARK - BEACHES & CREEKS - MONASTERY - VINEYARDS

Experience an exceptional sailing trip off the French Riviera coast to discover 2 very special islands nearby. You will find there a paradise of sunshine, greenery gems, an oasis of unspoilt nature & many unbelievable monuments. An explosion of hundreds of shades of colors not to be missed for nothing in the world : Coastal views from the Boat, Natural Parks, Forests, Royal Prison, Citadel, Creeks & Beaches, Special Monastery, Vineyards & Lake with Rare Birds. Get on board, blow your mind!

After the offshore crossing above turquoise waters of Mediterranean Sea, your captain and your guide will take you to the 1rst Island, a pure diamond, to visit many historical monuments including a legendary royal prison, a citadel, a sea museum and a lake adapted for the observation of birds coming from faraway lands. In the middle of a pine tree forest, follow quiet paths enjoying the calm of wilderness, a protected park where idyllic creeks & beaches will appear one after another. As far as the eye can see, admire strong contrasts of colors with Caribbean accents combining lush greenery, blue sky, golden sands and turquoise waters.

We'll take advantage of a magical spot with unforgettable panorama to share a traditional picnic and plunge into the Mediterranean Sea before to sail through the second island: a real haven of peace & tranquillity where is located the oldest Monastery of South of France. There is nothing prettier than the pure simplicity of this Holy piece of land, far from the crowdy Riviera, where cars & pollution is not admitted. A unique opportunity to be welcomed by a secular monastic community still active in the production of excellent wines and local produces.

Surely the South! Times lasts longer here...
