Stay on a boat in Villeneuve-Loubet, France

New for 2020 we are offering our treasured sailing boat MARA as unusual shore accommodation. She is based in a lovely marina called Marina Baie des Anges which is conveniently located between NIce and Cannes. The marina boasts some super restaurants and is only 100m from the beach and boardwalk - perfect for early morning strolls, swims and runs. Relaxing on her deck with a chilled bottle of wine watching the world go by is a really cool thing to do.

MARA is 11ft long and guests have exclusive occupation of the boat. The sleeping quarters are located in the saloon and there is an upper deck suitable for relaxing, dining or sun bathing and front cabin (suitable for storage). A small kitchenette for basic food prep, coffee making etc and on board WC facilities. Guests also have use of the marina’s own private hot water/WC facilities which are a 2 minute walk away from the boat.

Layout

A photo of the layout may be found in our photo gallery. The saloon contains the dining area and kitchenette. Guests can either leave the dining area set up during the day and then pull down the double bed for sleeping or alternatively, as we often do, is to use half of the saloon for dining and relaxing and leave the bed made up. There is plenty of storage in the rear cabin.
A small cabin contains a flushable toilet and pumped water wash hand basin. The upper rear deck is the place for relaxing and sunbathing and enjoys evening sun. The front of the deck catches the early morning sun and so is a nice place to sit with your coffee and croissant.

The Area

Nestled between Nice and Cannes, there is so much to do. MARA is also very conveniently located for the major events that take place in the area such as the Nice Carnival, Cannes Film Festival etc. Fresh food markets, art galleries, paddle boarding schools, wine tasting, cycling, sailing, hiking, perfumeries, stunning gardens, beautiful medieval villages and french dining experiences and many more activities are on the doorstep. We provide our guests with a comprehensive A - Z which is helpful.

What's special about this boat

MARA is a classic yacht and has a nostaligic feel about her which is very relaxing. We love to go running early morning along the boardwalk and then take a dip in the sea before showering and having breakfast on deck as we plan our day. On evenings the sun goes down on the back of the boat and its lovely to just sit there and watch the world go by. At weekends the marina comes to life with sailors coming back to port for dinner along with their tales of a day’s sailing. Sometimes there are live concerts and open markets right on the waterfront which are great fun.

About the marina/waterway

The marina is a port and yacht club with great views of the Mediterranean. She nestles in the iconic curved apartment buildings that dominate the coastline and which are easily spotted when coming into land at Nice Airport. The marine has a thriving bar and restaurant scene, supermarket, laundry, spa, water sports and heated swimming pool all within a minute of two’s walk from the boat. There is a gorgeous cycling route that runs all the way from the marina along the coastline into Nice and you can hire a cycle for the marina shop for a reasonable sum There are many water sports facilities close by and a lovely protected parkland and bird sanctuary close by with a river walk that takes you to Biot and even further to Valbonne for the adventurous walker. The marina is very well located for travelling and seeing the French Riviera and so a trip to Cannes, Nice, St Tropez, Monaco or a medieval hill top village where time stands still, is all easily accessible whether driving or by the local coastal train or bust routes which are only a couple of euros. Nice is a 15 minute drive from the marina. There are a number of options to reach the boat from the airport including Uber or the airport express bus runs on a regular basis. Bus stops and train station are a 15 minute walk from the boat. We have intimate knowledge of the area and if you let us know what things you like to do, we can probably assist you. Details of all information referred to are contained in MARA’s comprehensive manual.
