With the exceptional presence of Christiane Rancé, French novelist, essayist and journalist.

From the pearl of the French Riviera to the splendid Maltese capital, set sail on a brand-new 11-day cruise in the Mediterranean Sea. Aboard Le Bougainville, discover the Isle of Beauty, the Italian shores and Malta during an unforgettable trip.

From Nice, you will set sail for Calvi in the heart of the Balagne region. Between steep peaks and sublime beaches with turquoise waters, you will experience a wild and authentic Corsica.

You will then visit Portofino. Built in a natural harbour protected by a pine forest, it is a picturesque and lively port that has successfully retained its authenticity and traditions.

After a port of call on the Tuscan island of Giglio, your ship will stop at Porto Ercole, a charming Tuscan village with colourful houses, on the Monte Argentario peninsula. Here, you will have the possibility of meeting fisherman from the Orbetello Lagoon as well as local producers. The peninsula’s rolling and lush landscapes will also provide you with opportunities for magnificent outings.

A little further south, you will discover the Aeolian islands. Lipari is the capital of the Aeolian volcanic archipelago and is renowned for its many natural and architectural gems. Then, you will sail in front of Stromboli, an active volcano whose crater regularly erupts with lava flows.

Then, you will head for Malta and Gozo, an unspoiled island that is home to a megalithic site listed with UNESCO. On foot, kayak or bike, explore the island and its spectacular scenery, from the endless turquoise sea to the dreamlike decor of the salt marshes. Do not miss your chance to taste the local wines.

You will finally arrive on Malta’s smallest island, the idyllic Comino, whose blue lagoon, renowned for its turquoise waters, rivals the finest beaches of the Seychelles!

Your cruise will come to an end in Valletta, capital of the island of Malta and former stronghold of the Knights of the Order of Malta.

Christiane Rancé

"With this cruise, I am not only offering you a discovery of the landscapes and architecture of the places visited, but an authentic journey into their history – the history of the men who designed them, and the history of ideas and art who presided over it, so that together we could discuss the influence of each other... and therefore on ourselves."
