You cannot the Med for exploring stunning stretches of the French and Italian coasts, without being tied to one location.  The views are awesome and each day will offer a different experience for passengers. 

Essential Sailing is offering a 7-days luxurious sailing package highlighting some of the best cruising in the world.  Each morning starts with an exhilarating journey to the next port of call. Naturally, the crew will be seeking out the best opportunities to fish and swim from the yacht. 

Of course, there are lively harbours to explore, such as glitzy Cannes. Families are also welcome to pre-book as many (or as few) cultural excursions as they wish, such as the family-friendly Oceanographic Museum in Monaco.

It is good to know that although no experience is necessary, families can learn the ropes on the “Essential Start to Yachting” that is particularly popular with teenagers.  Rest assured this sailing experience offers a true break from domestic duties, especially in the evenings, while the helpful crew prepares a gourmet 4-courses dinner.

Guests will travel on “First Essential”, a luxurious Beneteau Oceanis 50-foot yacht, providing smart, contemporary quarters for up to six guests in three cabins.


Essential Sailing provides fantastic yachting holidays from £8,658.

The price includes breakfast and lunch daily and dinner on 4-nights, a Champagne and canapés reception, professionally qualified skipper and personal hosts, daily cabin service, soft drinks, confectionery and ices on demand, and use of snorkelling equipment, beach gear and an inflatable kayak. Even better, there are no hidden extras!
