Follow the expert suggestions of the Head of Marketing & Sales, Florian Helmberger, bringing you the best insights from our most discerning customers regarding top destinations and how to enjoy them fully.
Mallorca – Ibiza – Formentera
From Majorca’s Port Adriano to Ibiza Town only takes three hours, but you can make a lovely day trip of it by stopping off on Formentera, the small jewel-like island south of Ibiza, which has a slightly Caribbean feel to it: enjoy seabass baked in salt crust at “Juan Y Andrea” with your feet on the sand, and perhaps Beyoncé at the next table, followed by a mojito at Beso Beach. Then speed across to one of the Ibiza clubs like Pacha or Heart and make your way back slowly the following day.
St. Tropez – Iles de Lerins – Cannes
Since 2019, Frauscher has established a subsidiary in Port Grimaud (South of France). To support regional dealers on-site and look after our French customers, we are happy to allow experience the outstanding performance of Frauscher boats on French waters. To help us discover the region, we have asked our local contacts to provide you with the best suggestions, and we are happy to share them with you!
For a chapter of literary history, look at Sainte-Marguerite, the largest of the small Lérins. It was here, allegedly, that the Man in the Iron Mask in Alexandre Dumas’s celebrated 19th-century novel. Spending a full day at sea will probably make you want to enjoy gourmet restaurants, so we suggest a meal at “Le Lénéquir” – a traditional café in the city centre. Get there after mooring in St. Tropez’s romantic old harbour.
Once in the French Riviera, do not forget to visit:
- Les criques et calanques de l’Esterel
- Cap Taillat
- Iles d’Hyeres (Port-cros, Porquerolles)
- Plage de Pampelonne for the best beach clubs (Club 55, Tropezina and others)
Lago di Garda
A must-visit is Isola del Garda, located close to the Saló Gulf, which you can best reach by boat. Admire the landscape and the most beautiful villas in the area; anchor and chill out in style. Moore your boat at the Salò Gulf and enjoy a well-deserved “apertivo”. Where luxury villas nestle amongst idyllic passages, this location will enable you to satisfy your shopping needs and have a great time on the ground while your boat is cared for.
The Frauscher Tip: Look for the hidden Villa Canossa once on a boat ride in San Vigilio.
Our suggestions for The top 4 restaurants in the area include those which are reachable by boat in a spectacular and uncomplicated way. Here is the list:
- “Punta San Vigilio” – where you can admire an amazing sunset while having high-end Italian cuisine as your dinner.
- “Da Umberto” in Castelletto – where you can have the best fish specialities.
- “Lido da Adriano” – reach this fantastic address by boat; stay for the good wines and food delicacies.
- “Baia d’Oro” is one of the area’s most renowned restaurants.
You can already see the beautiful Alto Garda Bresciano natural park from the Marina di Bogliaco. All the more reason to throttle back or switch off the engine entirely during the stretch after Saló so that you can admire the dramatic mountain terrain. Saló and Desenzano have some inviting small, elegant boutiques if you want to enjoy the city.
But it is not just about shopping and boating. Culture plays a major role at Lake Garda. Villa Feltrinelli, for example, is located just a throw’s stone from Feltrinelli marina, inviting you to spend time and enjoy starred meals.
