Janet Winters is the author of The Barn Goddess Chronicles, a blog celebrating the equestrian lifestyle. Winters refers to the lifestyle as, “…a journey of adventure, discovery and community…We never know what any particular ride will be like.”
That spirit of adventure bonds the equestrian and yachting lifestyles together. Indeed, each time we “climb aboard” – whether it’s a steed or a luxury yacht – we have the chance to immerse ourselves in adventure. Moreover, it’s an opportunity to rejuvenate mind, body, and spirit.
It’s hard to imagine a luxury yacht charter destination that beckons to equestrian travelers more than the Mediterranean. The Eastern “Med” includes Greece and the Aegean Sea. The Western Med covers the French Riviera and Italy’s western coast, as well as the islands of Corsica and Sardinia. The scenery is breathtaking. In fact, everywhere you turn, you see hills and mountains that look down on uncrowded beaches and turquoise-green waters.
Remember the classic film, The Black Stallion? (Oh, who could forget!!??) The young, shipwrecked boy and his newfound equine friend are inseparable. It is a magnificent friendship. They spend much of the first part of the film exploring an uninhabited beach and frolicking in the sea.
Those mesmerizing scenes take place on the beautiful island of Sardinia.
Just look at the color of the water!!!!
GO, GO, GO – FEI MONACO
Are you familiar with the places to see and the things to do during a yacht charter in the Med? Please don’t worry if your answer is “no.” Our team will create a bespoke itinerary for you. It will be based on the activities you enjoy.
For example, we created a Equestrian-Friendly yacht charter itinerary that kicks off in Monaco at the annual FEI Monte Carlo, Port Hercules Standard Show (June 25-25).
The FEI show jumping arena is set up right in front of the marina! Your superyacht will serve as your floating hotel while you attend the event.
Try to envision the sequence of your day.
First, you wake up and enjoy an open-air breakfast, on deck. Everywhere you look you see beautiful yachts, docked side by side. Second, you take the short walk to the FEI arena for an exciting day of world-class show jumping. When you need a break, your crew is standing by – ready to serve you a freshly-prepared lunch. No one but you and your family and friends are onboard. Third, when the jumping is over for the day, you and your guests return to your luxury yacht. After all, it’s time for an impromptu and oh-so-casual cocktail hour!
Without a doubt, it’s hard to imagine a more convenient vacation arrangement for watching the FEI show… This is the Equestrian Lifestyle at its best…
Now, its time to explore Monaco and then set off for adventure. Let’s look at the rest of your 7-night itinerary:
Monaco is the second smallest state in Europe. The only city, Monte-Carlo, is synonymous with all things luxury – casinos, resorts, superyachts, exclusive parties, and exotic cars. You and your family and guests can enjoy activities such as:
-Helicopter rides over the city
-A test drive in a F1 race car
-Lunch at Le Vistamar, at Hotel Hermitage*
-Dancing the night away at the exclusive nightclub, Jimmy’z.
*Additionally, other beautiful lunch options include Roquebrune-Cap-Martin, Au Grand Inquisteur
Finally, the dining experience at 3-Michelin star restaurant, Louis XV is not to be missed. This fine establishment features the unique food interpretation of international renowned executive-chef Alain Ducasse.
Pampelonne Beach is the sandy locale that fuels St Tropez’s fame. Over 20,000 people a day visit this beach in the peak of the summer (July/August). Even so, you’ll never feel overwhelmed as your private superyacht is at anchor, just a few yards from the beach. You decide how much interaction, if any, you want with the local community and tourists. The top beach clubs/restaurants worthy of a visit are Nikki Beach, Bagatelle, Cap 21, Les Murenes, and Le Club 55.

There are 2 primary highlights of cruising the Italian Riviera. They are Portofino and The Cinque Terre. Everyone knows Portofino. Cinque Terre is well-deserving of praise, as well. Yacht charter Italy as a destination is popular.
Tour the five little towns. Specifically, Riomaggiore, Manarola, and Corniglia. In addition, Vernazza, and Monterosso. Importantly, Cinque Terre means Five Lands. These narrow towns are linked by paths and old steps. The stairs clamber up the Mediterranean marquis. This is among broom bushes. In addition, plants of butterbush, rare agaves flowers, and fragrant lemons exist.
Here’s a sample itinerary. It includes two areas that clients specifically want to see. They are Forte Dei Marmi and Florence.
What awaits you? Genuine warm hospitality. As well as authentic regional cuisine awaits. The prettiest, flower-filled stretch of the Italian coast. It’s ‘Cinema Italiano.’ Especially lovely beautiful fishing villages. They resonate old world charm. Delectable Ligurian specialties are abundant. For instance, pesto, tuna and anchovies. These ignite your taste buds. It is a World Heritage site to the undeniably beautiful Portofino. The Italian Riviera is a coastline. It boasts a tantalizing selection of fish. This guarantees a foodie cruise in culinary heaven.
This is on the Italian Riviera. It is the little port town, Portofino. It is a genuine piece of earthly paradise. This peaceful haven is popular. Specifically, with the international jet set. It offers breathtaking views over the Gulf of Genova. Numerous celebrities own luxurious estates here. What to do there? Walk over the summit past the Castello. Additionally, swim in the Captain’s Cove at the foot of high cliffs. Enjoy the lighthouse at the tip of the peninsula. Shop in the lovely fashion boutiques. Portofino has a lot to offer for everyone. Without a doubt, lunch or supper in the Splendido Hotel is a must.
Consider spending a few days exploring the Cinque Terre. In specific, you find fantastic hilltop towns here. In addition, spectacularly good restaurants as well. Some of the villages provide a dramatic coast line. It is breathtaking to see when approaching by yacht tender. Others can only be accessed on land. They are all absolutely stunning.
Undoubtedly one of the must see destinations on the Italian Coast, Forte dei Marmi. It is well known for its wide sandy beaches. Especially due to Alpi Apuane as backdrop. It should be noted, it is considered the East Hampton of Italy. The city delights with nice restaurants and beautiful beach areas.
The Captain will organize your transfer to Pisa by private car from Livorno (Approximately 40 min). Once a maritime power to rival Genoa and Venice, Pisa now draws its fame from an architectural project gone terribly wrong. But the world-famous Leaning Tower is just one of many noteworthy sights in this compelling city.
The center of town is full of vibrant cafes and bars, balancing an enviable portfolio of well-maintained Romanesque buildings, Gothic churches and Renaissance piazzas with a lively street life dominated by locals rather than tourists.
The Captain will organize your transfer from Livorno to Florence by car (Approximately 1.5 hours).
Surprisingly small as it is, this riverside city looms large on the world’s ‘must-sees’ list. A cradle of the Renaissance and home to famous art, Florence is magnetic, romantic and busy. Its urban fabric has hardly changed since the Renaissance. One reason, the narrow streets evoke a thousand tales. Its food and wine are wonderful. The tag ‘Fiorentina’ is an international label of quality assurance.
Fashion designers parade on Via de’ Tornabuoni. Gucci was born here, as was Roberto Cavalli, who, like many a smart Florentine these days, hangs out in wine-rich hills around Florence. After a while in this absorbing city, you might want to do the same.
Compared to a pearl in a shell, the small Giglio isle lies cradled by warm blue seas. It is located specifically in the Southern corner of the Tuscan Archipelago. Just 50 km south of Elba, and 15 km from the mainland. Giglio has a mild climate and unspoiled nature. Uniquely crystal clear, emerald colored waters offer unforgettable sceneries all year round.
A thickly wooded, 23-square-mile promontory is linked to the mainland by three causeways. L’Argentario has long been a vacation spot for wealthy Romans. Its main town is Porto Santo Stefano. This is a uniquely flashy harbor for yachts. Next, the colorful Porto Ercole. Baroque painter, Caravaggio, died of malaria here in 1610. Finally, there’s also the lively fishing port of Orbetello nearby, with its blue-tinged lagoon.
Elba is a lovely island with a large choice of small ports and anchorages and an inland very much worth visiting.
Though best known for the famous prisoner who called it home for a short time, Napoleon Bonaparte. Absolutely, the scenery with its spectacular mountains and numerous beaches draw visitors here each year.
The Superyacht Experience™ includes selecting locations for your itinerary that make you happy. In addition, bring peace and wellness into your life. Subsequently creating amazing memories. This is all about YOU. You deserve it!
