Every September for the past four decades, the Cannes Yachting Festival has showcased the finest in the yachting world set against the luxurious backdrop of Cannes’ two sparkling ports, the Vieux Port and the Port Pierre Canto. As one of the largest of its kind in Europe, the Yachting Festival is the place to be for boat builders and the world’s major players in pleasure yachting to show off new, state-of-the-art superyachts.
Whilst Cannes is a great place to spot superyachts all year round, visitors to the Yachting Festival will be treated to over 600 boats on display, ranging from two metres to 65 metres in length, as well as 500 yacht and maritime exhibitors. The event is so popular internationally that half of its visitors come from overseas to admire the world’s sleekest liners and tailor-made vessels.
The team at Caudwell Collection is excited to be exhibiting at this year’s Cannes Yachting Festival (10th – 15th September 2019). Come and visit us on stand LUX 046 and be immersed in our two world-class developments, Parc du Cap and Les Oliviers. From penthouses with superyacht style and panoramic sea views to apartments with access to high-standard facilities usually reserved for luxury hotels, our residences pose a unique opportunity.
For yacht owners, Parc du Cap and Les Oliviers are a 10-minute stroll from Port Gallice which offers berths for boats up to 43 metres. Larger vessels can be booked in berths up to 165 metres in nearby Port Vauban, Europe’s largest yacht marina. Chartering a yacht is also an easy option to enjoy the Côte d’Azur at its best – by sea. The Culture Trip offers an excellent charter selection or there are a number of new start-ups like Sea Net and AV Yachts offering flexible ownership options.
Whether you choose a yacht or luxury sailboat, the French Riviera is a coveted destination by boat, renowned for its remarkable blend of buzzy ports and quiet private coves, not to mention breath-taking beaches and unique islands. As an owner of one of our residences, dreaming of jumping into crystal clear waters or indulging in coastal fine dining becomes a reality.
Countless maritime itineraries lie before you. You may wish to take the route from Nice to Monaco, enjoying Villefranche sur Mer, Cap Ferrat, and many secretive anchor points along the way. Or you can navigate around Antibes and Cannes, stopping off at natural beauty spots like Île Sainte-Marguerite (one of the four tranquil Lérins Islands) – an exceptional island where nature, culture and relaxation meet in blissful harmony under a canopy of eucalyptus and pine trees.
For additional luxury, the South of France offers an exceptional standard of chefs for superb onboard private dining during your sea journey. Toasting Parc du Cap life over a glass of champagne as you take in the striking vista has never tasted so sweet.
