Private Jet Spring Vacation
France's Cote d'Azur is home to the glamorous towns and beach resorts of Saint-Tropez and Cannes, the independent microstate of Monaco and the authentic hilltop villages of Eze and Haut-de-Cagnes. You will be surprised that spring is a perfect time to discover the French Riviera. Here is why:
Private Jet Charter to the South of France
July and August are peak season in Cote d'Azur, which can lead to long traffic queues and crowded beaches. Instead, while visiting in spring, you will be able to explore the quiet medieval village of Eze, just a 25-minute panoramic drive from Nice.
If you feel like unwinding in idyllic Eze, stay at Château de la Chèvre d'Or, perched on a cliff with breath-taking sea views. Terraced sculpture gardens wind their way past vertiginous views to a castle-hotel where only the gourmet restaurant can compete with the dreamy setting.
La Chèvre d’Or commands one of the Riviera’s most stunning settings. Nestled on the cliffs between sea and sky, this 5-star château provides a luxurious heaven in the medieval hilltop village of Eze. Four hundred meters above the Mediterranean Sea between Nice and Monaco, this iconic Relais & Châteaux hotel features spectacular panoramas with breath-taking sunsets, award-winning cuisine and world-class service.
An open-air museum
Nature is everywhere at Château de la Chèvre d’Or. Discover its different gardens filled with sculptures, fountains, waterfalls, flowers and herbs. The air is perfumed with the scents of jasmine, bougainvillea and roses. The magnificent colours create a framework that blends into the horizon and the sea. This will take you into a voyage where it is pleasant to just relax or stroll around and breath in the freshness.
Private Jet customers have a choice of airports across Cote d”Azur:
Riviera Airport is a small private airport just across the border in Italy (also known as Albenga Airport), providing VIP services for light jets and turboprops. It can be a useful alternative for travellers to Monaco or destinations close to the border.
Nice Cote d'Azur Airport is a big international airport on the French Riviera handling the largest jets, with a dedicated terminal for private jet charter and VIP requirements allowing those flying by private jet to be quickly and efficiently processed and separate to commercial traffic.
Cannes Mandelieu Airport is the next busiest after Nice, with a dedicated private jet terminal servicing VIP’s, business jets and private charters.
St Tropez La Mole is situated 15km’s south west of St. Tropez, this is a popular and busy airport during the summer months. Although fully equipped with a dedicated terminal for private jets, the relatively short runway makes it more suitable for smaller jets and turbo props.
Toulon-Hyeres airport, located 19km’s east of the city of Toulon, has a fully dedicated private jet terminal catering for VIPs and business flights and is considered one of the more convenient airports for those travelling by private jet to Saint Tropez. Onward helicopter transfers are available.
You might wish to combine your Cote d'Azur trip with a visit to the Cannes Film Festival and/or Monaco Grand Prix, taking place from mid- until the end of May, creating one of Europe's busiest periods for private jet charter.
The fastest and smoothest way to arrive at these events is to charter a private jet to Nice or Cannes, then avoid the ground traffic with a private helicopter transfer to Monaco or Cannes harbour.
We advise clients looking to fly over this period to book in advance, to ensure availability and best prices as slot availability can be limited for last minute flights.
