As the summer gets off to a warm start this June, travelling by road around the French Riviera becomes more and more frustrating. With so many tourists arriving by car, what better way to begin your Monaco yacht charter than to arrive by helicopter! Avoiding all the motorway nonsense, the slow procession of cars through the winding roads of the Var en-route to St Tropez and the chaos of La Croisette in Cannes! Whether arriving by plane to either Nice, Cannes or St Tropez, a helicopter is simply the best way to stay relaxed and take the most direct route and enjoy stunning views to begin your luxury vacation or business event.
