Fréjus is an ideal location for sailing thanks to its relative quietness compared to other regions of the French Riviera, yet equally as stunning views of the coastline.

Temperatures in the region can reach as high as 30°C in July and August – perfect temperatures for a yacht charter. However, you may choose to sail in the shoulder months of late spring or early autumn, as there are fewer people in the marinas of both Fréjus and nearby port towns.
