Hiring a sailboat in France

France is the European country that receives the most tourists every year and it’s no surprise why. The country boasts a great diversity of landscapes, history, culture, gastronomy and is located at the heart of the continent. If you book a sailing holiday in France, you will be able to enjoy the country’s great lakes, waterways and rivers as well as its 2000-mile-long coastline. The country is bordered by the Mediterranean in the south, the Atlantic in the west and the English Channel in the north. It’s time to book your sailboat hire in France with Océans Evasion now!


How much does it cost to hire a sailboat in France?

The price of a sailboat hire in France depends on the type of sailboat you choose, the season of your trip and the duration of your charter. Generally speaking, you can expect to pay an average of £450 per day for your sailboat charter in France.

Should you charter a sailboat in France with or without a skipper?

A sailboat charter in France with a professional skipper is ideal if you want to be guided to the best places in the country and enjoy the moment without having to worry about navigating or mooring the vessel. You can hire sailboats without a skipper if you have a valid boat license or if sailboats without a license are available. Being the captain of your own sailboat is a thrilling experience, but nothing beats exploring with a local!

When is the best time to charter a sailboat in France?

The geographical diversity of France means that there are different climates in each region. The summer months, from July to September, are best for sailing in the sunshine. On the northern coast, you will enjoy a mild and humid oceanic climate, quite different from the South of France, which is characterised by its Mediterranean climate.

Sailing conditions on the Mediterranean coast change easily. Winds are usually from the west, northwest and east. The wind is frequent and has different names depending on its direction. Among them: the “mistral”, the “tramontane”, the “autan”, the “levant”, the “siroco” and the “marin”.

What to do in France?

France's 2000-mile-long coastline is ideal for exploring on board a sailboat. The Mediterranean coast is best suited to peaceful sailing whereas the Atlantic offers a more thrilling experience!

Off the Mediterranean Sea:

The Côte d Azur and its main destinations, Marseille, Toulon, Nice and Monaco offer idyllic coves and inlets to enjoy alone or with your family on board your sailboat. You can also anchor in sumptuous places for a swim, visit one of the many bustling markets and enjoy the vibrant Mediterranean atmosphere. If you’re seeking a bit of glamour, no trip would be complete without visiting Cannes, home to the world-renowned Cannes Film Festival. Further west, you can find the cute town of St Tropez, known for being a playground for the rich and famous.

Corsica:

Corsica is also a must for all sailing enthusiasts. Whether you are with family or friends, Corsica will offer you a multitude of landscapes that will never cease to amaze you. To the north: the wonderful sandy beaches of Lotu de Saleccia, the Calanques of Piana and the Scandola nature reserve are all must-see destinations that you can easily reach on board your sailboat charter in France. In the south: Bonifacio, Porto-Vecchio, Cavallo and the sublime beach of Rondinara are must-sees. Let yourself be taken away by the immense white chalk cliffs and crystal clear waters.

To the west, in Brittany:

The Gulf of Morbihan, Cap Fréhel, Saint-Malo, Concarneau, the island of Bréhat and the island of Batz are all spectacular holiday destinations that are worth visiting with your sailboat hire. You will be able to sail in magnificent places and will benefit from milder temperatures than on the French Riviera. You are bound to find something to suit your taste in the different regions.
