How To Get The Full Experience


The festival has been an annual event since 1946, so it has taken its place as one of the world’s most famous film festivals. The Cannes festival has a fantastic international atmosphere and you’ll be able to meet people from all walks of life, including celebrities. However, the way you experience the festival makes all the difference. You could stay at a luxury hotel, but if you want that extra touch of style, how would you like to not only enjoy Cannes but the entire French Riviera on a yacht charter?


As the main events of the festival take place at the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès, the pier is well placed to put you right in the middle of all the action. It also makes getting around the festival so much easier, since you don’t need to be stuck in traffic – you are already in the middle of it all. It’s quite exhilarating to be at the centre of it all and there’s nothing that you could possibly miss out on. Besides, when you need some peace and quiet, you can just hop on your yacht and sail away. Not to mention that there’s no more sharing a swimming pool and looking for sunbeds - the sea is your back garden and you can sunbathe all day long on the deck of your private yacht.


Why Booking In Advance Will Make All The Difference


The classic film festival is not just a place for the film industry to showcase its talent, since the international atmosphere of the event makes the festival an important networking spot. Although many attend the festival as a vacation, plenty of people are there also to do business. Whether you are there on business on holiday, if you want your French home to be a luxury yacht charter, book in advance to avoid disappointment. If you are travelling to the Cannes festival on business, booking a yacht charter for the team could be the best treat ever, and can even serve as an impressive marketing strategy for your business.
