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 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!

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.

This was the first time we had sailed with Pierre (French) and Joyce (English) whose sailing boat Folly-Too is conveniently moored in Cannes Old Port . At 95 euro per adult and 60 euro per child for the day from 1030 to 1800 including lunch,wine and all drinks, it is superb value. Joyce's lunch was excellent, with amazing and very tasty bread baked on board, together with home-cured salmon and six other dishes, On top of that we had an aperitif, a good choice of wine (as much as you want to drink) and coffee, with a further drink before landing. We sailed to the Isles de Lerins and swam, snorkeled (Pierre is a qualified scuba diver), ate and drank the day away. We were fortunate with the sunny weather and a good breeze but we shall certainly return..

We have been sailing with Pierre and Joyce for 10 years now. Around 95 euro per adult for the day from 10:30 am to 6pm including lunch with wine, it is the best value anywhere. It is a great way to spend the day when the weather is good, but it is even better when the wind is strong and you have to put on oilskins. Then it is pure sailing ;-) if you have never sailed on a yacht before this is perhaps the best introduction.
