Day 1

    Nice, France / Embark

    Arrive in Nice. Embark the Le Ponant between 5 and 6 PM. Settle in to your cabin and familiarize yourself with the ship and her crew.

    Day 2

      St. Tropez, France

      The myths that surround Saint-Tropez continue to inspire people to dream. For celebrities, sea lovers and those passionate about history, art and heritage, the village is still a destination they have to go to at least once. Yet behind the festivities and glitz Saint-Tropez remains an authentic village, a small fishing port of infinite charms and many different facets. Feel free to explore the picturesque streets, the bustling Provencal market, its 16th century citadel and the small but always interesting Annonciade Museum.

      Day 3

        Scandola / Girolata, Corsica - France

        At the very tip of the Girolata Peninsula, at the heart of the maritime side of the Corsica Regional Nature Park (Parc Naturel Régional de Corse), discover the Scandola reserve with its abrupt ochre and red rock cliffs plunging into a crystal sea. You will also discover the Calanques de Piana, huge cliffs of pink granite that loom above the sea. Jagged and carved by erosion, this UNESCO World Heritage Site gives the impression of being a giant sculpture. Further on, dominated by its Genoese fort and the houses clinging to the mountain slopes, Girolata is one of the emblematic sites of the island. A veritable haven of peace, this hamlet lies nonchalantly along the slopes of Mount Senino.

        Day 4

          Palombaggia / Bonifacio, Corsica - France

          Port details pending.

          Day 5

            Bonifacio - Corsica - France

            An impressive construction of stone built on a rocky headland of white limestone, Bonifacio occupies a very special place in the landscape of the place Saint Exupery described as a “rose pink pebble on the Mediterranean sea". The limestone and granite cliffs have been eroded by the waves to form a natural façade, swooping down towards the crystal water. A veritable fortress sculpted by the wind and the spray, the “sentinel city” will show you its historical centre and its long cobbled streets.

            Day 6

              Bai de Roccapina, Corsica - France

              The turquoise-blue waters invite you to dive. No habitation around, only a beautiful and luxuriant nature to be discovered. We have to admit it: Roccapina’s bay is absolutely fabulous. An ideal place to cast anchor!

              Day 7

                Ile Rousse, Corsica - France

                Picturesque, historic and charming, L’Ile Rousse (Corsica) lies at the foot of a rugged range of hills in the heart of the Balagne and is named after the islets of red granite. This region has surely been blessed, an area where ancient villages stand out proudly against a stunning panorama. Baptised Paolina, L’Ile Rousse was founded in the 18th century by Pascal Paoli who wanted to compete with the citadel of Calvi. Occupied since ancient times, today the new town stretches along the edge of fine sandy beaches, its privileged location making it a popular holiday destination and seaside resort.

                Day 8

                  Nice, France / Disembark

                  Following an early breakfast on board, disembark in Nice. Transfer to airport to continue your travels.
