Essential Luxury, Essential Relaxation, Essential Sailing

At Essential Sailing we offer luxury crewed Mediterranean sailing holidays to inspire and entertain you.

Holidaying with us gives you the freedom of sailing without the worries of your own yacht; the historic interest, culture and artistic beauty of the region without the local travelling; and the fine dining experience without the effort.

Families, couples and groups are welcome to join our discreet and friendly crew on any of seven cruises, between May and October, in the untarnished beauty of the French and Italian Riviera.

  • the wild and rugged coast of the west Cote D’Azur
  • the uniquely tropical coast of the east Cote D’Azur
  • the vivid blue of the French Riviera, taking in the iconic St Tropez, Cannes and Monaco
  • the elegant, flower-filled Riviera Ponte
  • the richly cultural Riviera Levante
  • the enchanting Tuscan Coast
  • the magical and memorable Tuscan Islands

During your stay, you will enjoy an air-conditioned ensuite double cabin. Your breakfast and lunch will be served each day and you will have a choice of eating on board or ashore in the evening. Your holiday package comprises:

  • Chauffeured airport transfers to your yacht (by arrangement)
  • Champagne and canapés reception
  • Professionally-qualified skipper and personal host / crew
  • Private ensuite double cabins, fine linen & towels, toiletries and daily cabin service
  • Daily breakfast and lunch served in the saloon or cockpit
  • Onboard four-course evening dining experience of regional cuisine (1, 2 or 3 nights depending on length of stay)
  • Regional wines, beers, soft drinks, confectionary and ices
  • Use of snorkeling equipment, beach gear and inflatable kayak
  • The Essential Start to Yachting – an optional short introduction to sailing where you take the helm and winch the sails
  • No hidden extras – price is inclusive of all marina berthing fees, insurance and fuel

So, whether you are looking for an idyllic romantic getaway, an action-packed family experience or a break with friends combining sun, sea and sailing, our three, four or seven-night yachting holidays and breaks offer the perfect setting from £233/night.
