“Not to Miss Experience!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

If we could give the Folly Too more than 5 stars, we would! I set up our adventure over email with Pierre before we left the States. It was a smooth process with no issues. We scheduled our boat trip for ourselves and 6 friends! It was an amazing day! Pierre and Joyce are a lovely couple who made us feel at home on their boat! Not only did we sail with them, Pierre had us steering and working the sails! Joyce made us a delicious feast and Pierre baked us a wonderful loaf of bread!! A few of us even braved the chilly water for a quick swim! Our best day in Provence!!

“Something to really look forward to...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

Having read the reviews, we thought we'd take a chance... and we certainly were not disappointed! Pierrot (as he likes to be called) and Joyce are true professional.
Pierrot is a seasoned sailor who exudes confidence even when passing the helm on to his temporary crew! His great sense of humor made everyone feel very much at ease. Joyce produced a fantastic display of scrumptious cold cuts with their delicious on board baked bread. Drinks offered were varied and generous... the weather spectacular. We enjoyed swimming off the boat and snorkeling. Placed in a special seat and sent swinging off the boat like a drunken sailor is something to be experienced !
It definitely was a great success and yes, also the highlight of our vacation.
Thank you Pierrot and Joyce :)

“Best way to spend a day on the Mediterranean”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

The reviews don't lie - a day spent on the Folly Too with the captain and his wife is one of the best ways to spend a day, anywhere in the world! The captain is very entertaining, sails expertly, and the food is fantastic. Drink as much Rose wine as you like and dive overboard for a swim. Definitely the highlight of our trip.

“The Highlight of the Holiday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

The day spent sailing with Pierre and Joyce was the highlight of our two week holiday in Cannes. The day was exceptional value for money and was really great fun.

We were joined on the Folly Two by another 9 people. At first we thought that this would mean that space on board was limited, but not at all, with plenty of space for everyone on board the yacht. Pierre made the sailing experience fun and our two children aged 14 and 10 were made to feel really welcome. Joyce's lunch was fantastic; the bread she baked on board was amazing! With plenty to eat and drink a mid afternoon siesta on deck was very welcome. This was followed by some more swimming and then back to Cannes for around 6pm.

A fantastic day's sailing with two genuinely lovely and welcoming people. A must do if you are in Cannes. Be sure to book early!

“Highly recommendable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

We went on a day trip with the Folly-Too crew and had a really good time. We had a full day on the water with plenty of opportunity to swim and snorkel. Joyce and Pierre were really good to look after us and create a good atmosphere. Plus, the lunch served by Joyce was above all expectations. We were 10 people in all (5 pairs) which was a good size for the trip, all were nice people.

This trip was without a doubt one of the highlight of our holiday and I will recommend it to anyone I know who goes to Cannes.
