Your hometown lockdown is lifted. Your arm hurts like heck where they stuck you with the Pfizer-BioNTech.
Things are getting back to normal. You are vaccinated, and oh-so-ready to reschedule that summer 2020 yachting escape.
Don’t worry. France, Italy, and Spain are right where you left them. So, what to do after Covid?
Close your eyes. Do you see the beaches? The dockside cafes? Imagine laying poolside – on the sundeck of superyacht ALFA NERO…
Unfortunately, even with much of Covid in the rearview mirror, the drudgery of getting to the Mediterranean sinks in.
Without question, it’s a LONG flight to the Med. Getting directly onboard a superyacht after hours in the air is not appealing. Understandably, no one wants to waste their first day on the sea, feeling dog-tired and irritable.
Fortunately, there is a simple solution to reducing jet lag and stress before your yacht charter begins. What is the solution? Check into a boutique property and decompress for a day!
A pre-charter layover is a great way to unwind after traveling. Let your yacht crew scramble with last-minute preparations. You will be relaxing in a calming, resort environment.
You can lay by the pool, or catch up on some needed sleep. Certainly, a stroll around town and a late-night espresso in a nearby café will have you in the right frame of mind.
Then, the next day, your crew picks you up from the resort and whisks you away to your awaiting superyacht.
Here are three, can’t-miss layover hospitality venues to help you get your groove back before you board your luxury charter yacht.
First, this new resort is scheduled to open in July, 2021. It is located in a quiet, almost-hidden cove in Xarraca Bay. Four-com magazine describes the resort as, “This magical cove with unobstructed sunset views and special energy is where the golden hour lasts until the Cinderella hour. Sundowner, guitar, or loved one in hand, anything feels possible. Live layers of programming and experiences will constantly evolve to celebrate music, art, sustainable fashion, spirituality, pioneering wellness, culinary exploration and culture, all synonymous with the island.” How’s that for a glowing endorsement?
We’re big fans of resorts with access to a beach and a deep-water bay. In fact, after a day of unwinding, your yacht’s crew can bring the ship’s tender right up to the beach. You and your companions can enjoy a short tender ride to your awaiting yacht. And let’s be honest – is there anything cooler than seeing your yacht at anchor, knowing everyone is watching you as you tender over and board on the aft swim platform???
The Gritti Palace, Venice
Second, this noble former palace and now hotel dates back over 500 years. It overlooks the Grand Canal in the heart of Venice. In fact, each of the hotel’s 82 guest rooms and suites offers unobstructed canal views. This is an intimate private residence masquerading as a hotel. Enjoy delicious Venetian cuisine at the Club del Doge restaurant. Too tired for dinner after a long flight? No problem. Just grab a table for cocktails on the terrace at the Riva Lounge. The next day, your yacht’s tender can pick you up at the property’s own dock. This is reminiscent of the Venice Biennale and the Venice Film Festival!
No, it’s not a typo. The question marks have been inserted for a reason. Indeed, we did promise you the name of three hospitality venues for the perfect pre-charter layover.
So why the secrecy, you might wonder? The reason is simple. It’s our passion at 1-800 Yacht Charters, to Deliver The Superyacht Experience™ to you.

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!
