  • Featured island for physically healthy people of all ages. The tour, instead of just crossing is highly recommended. France of one of the most beautiful pages.

  • After a short crossing (however plan to order your tickets by internet, you can avoid the tail) and with a good shoes, visit on foot (preferred) or by bike (electric possible) to a beautiful island where the flowers grow in profusion. Small roads to discover. Attention however to the crowd during the summer months (many people to bike). The prices of the restaurants are not necessarily very attractive (very tourist place requires). But beautiful ballad outdoor that I strongly advise family (children can run free) by taking the time to admire the landscape and the many and beautiful homes.

  • The island is beautiful. There are many paths to market all around the island which allow to discover quietly. It's a pity that we have not seen the agapanthus in bloom.

  • For 10.50 euros you'll find yourself in a place where walking is a delight for the eyes but also for the taste buds, because many restaurants are present in the village.

  • A magical island, Mediterranean microclimate, a few kilometers from the coast, where no car only runs. Only the sound of the sea and the smell of herbs and the surprisingly striking flowers.

  • Its maritime approaches are nightmarish in despair. Fortunately, the landscape is beautiful.
