A beautiful tiny island in the French Riviera that soothes the soul after the decadence of Cannes, prepare to pamper yourself and enjoy what may be France’s best beach. Purchased as a wedding gift by a kind husband and then converted into a vineyard in 1912, the island has resisted modernisation to such an extent that the only mode of transport allowed on the island is the bicycle. This leaves a wonderful archaic feel to on the island where the most strenuous activity will be choosing which beautiful, untouched corner of the island to visit next.
The hotels on the island are few in number but not lacking in anything else; although expensive you will be staying in a beautiful Provence style house where no expense has been spared. The island has only around 200 inhabitants so it would be best not coming to expect a party but if you are happy to enjoy you time eating some fresh, delicious seafood and having a quiet glass of fine wine then this is the place for you. On of the highlights on the island is Notre Dame Beach, a beautiful, arching wonder on the north coast, well worth the trip.
