Picture this: your very own luxury private yacht, a professional (and discreet) crew to sail her for you, glorious sunsets and champagne out on deck.
Couples searching for a memorable honeymoon can live the life of luxury for a week – without the need to break the bank. Enjoy candle-lit suppers moored up in the romantic harbours of Italy's Portofino or Portovenere, or find complete seclusion at an anchorage off the French Riviera's Îles de Lérins. The crew can book you into romantic restaurants along the coast – from France's first café-chantant (live music café) to Monégasque cuisine overlooking Prince's palace.
A week's exclusive use of the yacht costs from £2,870pp (two sharing). Price includes private airport transfers, seven nights' en-suite accommodation on board, fully-crewed service, daily breakfast and lunch on board, two dinners on board and all drinks served with meals. Flights excluded.
