Rent a sailboat to navigate around the Hyères islands:

Whether it is for a long weekend, a holiday in perspective, a crossing to Corsica, a romantic week or perfecting your sailing skills, here are some questions to ask yourself in order to choose your rental sailboat and prepare your trip well. stay on board.



We too often forget to ask this simple question. Sailing is for some a passion, for others a way to share good times, for still others, it is the search for a change of scenery or a way to spend a family vacation.

The motivations are diverse and varied, but one thing is certain, when cruising, space and privacy are reduced. Long before choosing the right boat or sailing region for your next yacht charter, building a harmonious crew is the key to a successful cruise.

Often, this point is more the result of a compromise between distance from your home, interest, climate and budget.

Hyères with the proximity of the islands (Porquerolles, Port Cros, Île du Levant) offers an almost ideal starting point: Motorway, airport, station, numerous rental companies, but also a privileged climate with 300 days of sunshine per year, a thermal breeze of 10 / 15 Knots, or a Mistral which very often blows much less strongly than in Marseilles, a multitude of anchorages within half a day of navigation? In short, renting a sailboat in Hyères is the best!

Bormes les mimosas or Le Lavandou offer almost the same advantages, the charm of a port that lives all year round, or the service of a “very attentive” harbor master's office will more than compensate for the few additional kilometers. Once on the water, instead of being in front of Porquerolles, you are in front of Port Cros (Underwater National Park).



Without going to the tropics or to the other side of the world, Hyères and its islands (Porquerolles, Port Cros, Ile du Levant) certainly offer a concentrate of everything you are looking for for a successful cruise: prevailing winds, sunshine, superb landscapes, numerous anchorages, proximity, variety of points of interest, wild coast, well sheltered ports ...



Beware of discounts. A “correct” list price is the basis of a healthy and balanced relationship.

The websites offering an almost vertiginous choice of boats are only "virtual rental companies", they have no boat and earn their living by taking a commission like a travel agency would. To rent a sailboat on the Côte d'Azur, you will always have the best rates, and above all precise answers to your technical and practical questions by contacting the rental company directly.

As for renting a sailboat directly from a private individual, and despite the many internet portals (which play at war between them!), We cannot encourage you to do so. What will happen in the event of a claim? What will happen in the event of an oversight of Maritime Affairs? What will happen in the event of a failure? What will happen if the reserved boat is unavailable? What will happen in the event of bankruptcy on the website through which you made your reservation?
For OneToSea, yacht charter and management in Hyères, all is well! Thank you. We publish our reports. You can consult them for free online on the official websites.
