SPRING-SUMMER 2010I sea&iI55aboardashoreYOUR PERSONAL GUIDESCaptain Colin Boyle aboard Cloud 9"World-class gastronomy and the unrivalledbackdrop of the French and Italian Mediterraneanregion remains, for me, the attractive combinationthat keeps the Riviera number one in the charterarmoury. Portofino is a delight with its bakeriesselling simple focaccia straight from wood-firedovens, and one of my favourite restaurants - therustic La Taverna del Marinaio, with its signaturedish Penne Taverna. Many fond memories haveremained with me from my first bite 15 years ago.Further around on the promontory, a lunchtime stopat the tiny fishing village of Camogli is great for anyguests that like to explore off the beaten track. Getdropped off by tender for a lovely alfresco lunch, orwalk around the coast to San Fruttuoso, with itscrystal-clear deep-blue bays and waterside abbeydating from the 12th century."Captain Jonathan Kielty aboard Anjilis "With so much attention focused on key areas of theFrench Riviera, some of the best experiences areoften overlooked. I always take guests to theanchorage at St Jean Cap Ferrat. From here they candine at the Michelin-starred Château Eza in thevillage of Eze, peering down at their yacht. Alsoeasily accessible from the small harbour at St Jeanis the Villa Ephrussi, a spectacular palazzo with ninegardens. Given the chance in Monaco, I turn leftwhere others turn right and head to the old streetsof Monaco Ville as a more serene and historicalternative to the crowds of Monte Carlo. On theItalian Riviera, I love the anchorage at Portovenerefor its protected location, its quaint colourfulbuildings and its proximity to the Cinque Terre."
