  • Yacht charter in Ajaccio
  • <p><strong>Yacht charter in Ajaccio</strong>, either crewed or bareboat, is a fantastic idea for a sailing holiday. Located about 390km southeast of the French coastal city of Marseille, it is Corsica’s capital and largest city. It has every charm of the typical French beach, and is located in a prime position on the island’s western coast, sheltered by a peninsula to the south. Its marina is located on the city’s eastern side, whilst the northern coast is littered with forested hills. The impressive marina is home to a wide range of yachts and boats, whose owners flock from other French ports to Corsica, which also oozes the allure of the Côte d’Azur. </p> <p>Sail your crewed or bareboat yacht charter around the island of Corsica and enjoy sailing in one of our yachts while you visit some gorgeous beaches, islands and any marina you like. Some destinations such as Girolata…</p> <h2>What to do</h2> <p>Ajaccio is unusual among French coastal resorts, as a relatively low proportion of its area is urbanized. A large amount of the municipality is protected land, which has helped to prevent the urban sprawl of many other coastal resorts, and has allowed Ajaccio to retain its unspoilt nature. With a yacht charter in Corsica’s multicultural capital, you’ll be able to enjoy the area’s many sophisticated cafés, restaurants, bars and chic boutiques, as well as a fantastic marina. The old town, centered around the square Place Foch, is complete with shaded, narrow streets lined with quaint traditional Corsican houses. </p> <p>Its popularity increased at the tail end of the 70s, thanks to the influx of high French society members during summer. The region’s tranquility and its beautiful countryside made it an ideal destination for high-end tourism. The city’s elegant atmosphere is still present today, and with its glamorous 20th century heritage, it has become a popular alternative destination to the Côte d’Azur. </p> <p>Corsica’s capital is home to a wealth of scenic bays where you can drop anchor and enjoy a quiet evening on the coast. One of the best routes to take is the Route des Sanguinaires, which runs along the city’s southern coast and is filled with beaches and small clear water coves. At the end of the road you’ll find the famous lighthouse and a lookout point where you can see the scenic views of the coast, one of the many highlights you’ll see if you charter a yacht in Ajaccio.</p> <p>If you’re a keen hiker, the region’s mountainous, wooded terrain is ideal. The Chemin des Crêtes is a beautiful nature trail which runs from the city centre to the Gulf of Ajaccio. The nearby town of Porticcio is a lively place, and is also an ideal place to visit for water sports and relaxing on the long sandy coast thanks to the favourable winds in the city’s bay and the area near Porticcio.</p> <p>Finally, Corsica, one of the most stunning islands with one of the best pieces of coast, amazing islands and fantastic areas for sailing is an idyllic location for a crewed or bareboat yacht charter and sailing holiday. Use the Corsican capital as a base location to explore nearby locations along Corsica’s coast and other places in the Med such as; Girolata, Vecchio, Sardinia, Bonifacio, Bastia, Calvi and Propriano. These locations will meet your every demand on your sailing holiday in your charter yacht with an amazing marina to moor your boat in and some of the best beaches to relax on are on offer in these places! </p> <h2>Historic monuments</h2> <p>If you choose to enjoy a yacht charter holiday in Ajaccio, you’ll see lots of historical and interesting sites. Owing to its geographical location, this French Isle has been subject to many conquests, and as a result has been influenced by many different cultures over time. If you’re interested in history, we recommend visiting the Roman ruins, which were discovered just a few decades ago, and bear witness to the city’s former importance during the Roman Empire. Other places of interest are the city’s 16th century Citadel, Genoese 15th century buildings such as the Torre di a Parata and 18th century buildings. </p> <p>The city’s fame derives mainly from being the birthplace of Napoleon. The former emperor’s family home, La maison Bonaparte is now a protected monument and a museum. His legacy is entrenched in the city, such as in the names of city streets, and monuments. The 16th century cathedral has records of his baptism and Eugène Delacroix’s masterpiece ‘Vierge du Sacré-Cœur’. </p> <h2>Corsican Cuisine</h2><p>Typical Corsican cuisine is mainly made up of fresh produce and cold cuts. Corsican cold meats have a distinct flavour thanks to the strict acorn and chestnut diet of pigs bred on the island. To try authentic Corsican cuisine, visit the market in Porticcio, located in the south. </p> <h2>Sailing routes </h2> <p>You can travel on your yacht charter in Ajaccio to the famous Îles Sanguinaires, or the Bloody Islands in English. Their name derives from the purple-red colour of the rocks when seen at sunset. They have a Mediterranean climate, although this depends on the altitude, with the south of the island being colder than the north, and the east being wetter than the west. </p>

  • Yacht charter in Azores
  • <p><strong>Charter a yacht in the Azores>/strong> and explore these islands! The Azores are a group of nine Portuguese isles located in the Atlantic Ocean, about 1500km from Lisbon and covering a total area of 2,333km squared.

So set sail in one of our crewed or bareboat yachts and begin cruising with your skipper on your holiday in these coastal areas that are a hidden part of Portugal! </p> <p>It wasn’t until the 20th century that the archipelago became an autonomous region of Portugal, within the European Union. They are of volcanic origin and have a rugged, but picturesque landscape, making them the perfect place to spend a relaxing sun, sea and sand holiday. </p> <p>Moreover, there are some fascinating and gorgeous places that you simply have to visit during your yacht charter in the Azores, sailing to places like Ponta Delgada, Faial, Lisbon, Horta, Terceira and the Isle of San Miguel are a must. </p> <p>Boat hire here has a great deal on offer for you, including sailing in the open ocean, swimming, fantastic sailing routes, diving and the opportunity to visit the quaint and characterful cities.

In 2012, the isles won the Quality Coast award for their natural landscapes and sustainable travel industry. </p> <p>One of the many advantages of choosing a yacht charter in the Azores is not only their beautiful and natural landscapes, perfect for nature lovers, but also their fantastic sailing conditions, and coastal sights. They have amazing beaches, far away from mass tourism, and great sailing facilities as each island has its own airport. </p> <h2>Whale watching</h2> <p>One of the main reasons to visit these Portuguese islands! With boat hire in this area, this option is even more attractive, as you can moor your boat in the sea and see the animals during their migration in summer. If you prefer to travel at a different time of the year, you can also see dolphins and other marine life. The dolphins and whales are spectacular sights and could even swim and jump alongside your yacht! </p> <p>Those who choose yacht charter in the Azores in winter will be able to see <strong>blue whales</strong> stop by the island, a remarkable opportunity to see these magnificent creatures. The biodiversity of the region is unparalleled, with over 115 protected species and 215 endangered species, and for this reason conservation laws are very strict on the islands. </p> <h2>Water sports</h2> <p>If you’re interested in sports such as diving or snorkelling, the Azores are an ideal destination, as you can go sailing and anchor your boat in many beautiful locations. If you like other water sports such as skiing, surfing, paragliding, horse riding, fishing, hang gliding, or other activities such as mountain biking and hiking through the volcanic landscape, these isles are the perfect sailing destination for you. </p> <p>So rent a bareboat or crewed boat, catamaran or yacht from aBoatTime and experience in one of our charters or perhaps join a flotilla and go sailing in the Azores and along the coast of Portugal.
