This experience, in a nutshell

The raw beauty of the Mediterranean, an exceptional climate in summer, moderate winds allowing for very pleasant sailing, warm seas, white sandy beaches, make the Côte d'Azur an exceptional place. Sailing there is a constant pleasure and the best way to visit wild places away from mass tourism.


Departing from Saint Mandrier, we will sail between Cap Sicié and Cap Benat, visiting, for the time of an anchorage, depending on the weather, the magnificent bays of the island of Porquerolles, the Cap de Bregançon, the peninsula of Giens and the harbour of Toulon. We will sail every day, from anchorage to anchorage, in order to make you discover the richness and diversity of this wild part of the French Riviera.


I only welcome a maximum of 4 people on board in order to offer you as much comfort as possible. To accommodate you, we have two large double cabins and one single cabin. We will share common areas. The teak deck, very comfortable, will allow you to indulge in contemplative idleness, reading and sunbathing.


During your cruise, if you wish, Cyril will teach you the basics of the art of sailing and have you participate in the maneuvers. They can also introduce you to snorkeling and freediving. A 2-seater kayak , a paddle board and a large dinghy will be at your disposal to go for a walk along the coast and to go ashore.


A typical day of cruising will go like this:

We will leave the anchorage where we spent the night around 10-11 am and sail (between 2 and 5 hours depending on our destination and the weather) to our next anchorage. Arriving at our new anchorage where we will spend the late afternoon and night, you can go ashore, enjoy the sea or indulge in lazing on board. In the evening, we will have a dinner together enjoying the scenery and, later, the beautiful starry skies.



Treat yourself to a break from nature, sea and sun, during a cruise aboard a magnificent sailboat.

Leg 1

Port of Saint Mandrier

Our port of departure and arrival. Away from the major tourist centres of the French Riviera, Saint Mandrier is a totally charming port located in the heart of the village. This place is perfect for your embarkation and disembarkation, to stock up (supermarket near the port) and to give you time to get some time before starting your cruise.

Leg 2

Notre Dame Bay

A spectacular anchorage off a beautiful white sand beach.

The ideal place to go hiking around the island.

Leg 3

Cape Bregançon

Splendid beaches along an uncrowded coast. A grandiose panorama, between nature and history, embracing the harbour of Hyères, the Fort de Bregançon, Porquerolles and Port Cros.

Leg 4

Giens Peninsula

Very wild coves in the heart of the pine forest. Ubiquitous cicadas. Spectacular walks on the paths that run along the peninsula.

A beautiful place for kayaking.

Leg 5

Langoustiers Bay

A real postcard setting. A superb wild anchorage bordered by a magnificent white sand beach, a translucent sea, an ideal place to explore the west of the island on foot, a magical place to contemplate the sunset.

Leg 6

Cape Sicily

A majestic promontory of schist overlooking the crystal clear sea, an arid and impressive landscape bordered by almost deserted beaches, a magnificent view of the Giens and Porquerolles peninsula.

Very nice walks to do in a kayak or paddle.

Nous avons passé une magnifique semaine de vacances sur le voilier de Cyril, L'accueil, les conseils, le confort, nous étions parfaitement bien. La météo ne nous a malheureusement pas permis de faire l'itinéraire initailement prévu, mais nous nous sommes adaptés et avons suivi les recommandations de Cyril pour les belles plages alentours et n'avons pas été déçus. Petit détail qui a son improtance : j'étais avec mes deux enfants de 5 et 8 ans et cela était parfaitement adapté, Un grand merci encore une fois à Cyril pour son acceuil et sa générosité, et bon vent aux suivant·es !

Le bateau est beau et très confortable, Cyril nous a très bien reçu. Cependant le bateau est aussi sa maison de tous les jours, ce qui le rend stressant. Il piorise le confort de la navigation plutôt que l’apprentissage. La pédagogie n’est visiblement pas son fort et même parfois infantilisant à nous prendre les bouts des mains sans revenir sur nos erreurs. Il n y a en revanche aucun doute que les croisières de plaisances doivent être très agréable avec Cyril.

Merci à Cyril pour ce stage de voile inoubliable. Gentillesse, bienveillance et transmission de savoir sont de mise. Merci pour les conseils précieux et pour le partage d’anecdotes plus passionnantes les unes que les autres. Le tout dans un cadre magnifique et sur un bateau très agréable à vivre. À recommander sans hésiter!
