Ile Saint-Honorat, French Riviera - Cote d'Azur

(4.7/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web)
Situated off the bay of Cannes, Ile Saint-Honorat is an island that has been a place of monastic life ever since the 16th century. Measuring about 1.5 kilometers in length and 400 meters in width, Ile Saint-Honorat currently houses about 30 Cistercian monks. The island has a rich history, despite its very humble appearance. History shows that the island was originally a place of pilgrimage because of the mythological writings of a monk named Raymond Féraud. Around 1635, the Spanish had captured Ile Saint-Honorat and the monks were exiled, only to return two years later when the island had been retaken by the French.

  • Very nice place. You don't have to disturb monks who cultivate their vines. The monastery, old, is respectful and open to the public. It's free. It should respect nature and calm, do not throw his trash on the floor and do not smoke. Access is by shuttle, and the luckiest, private boat (small port shelter where you can dock for 6 hours per day for free) to also keep a suitable dress, in the case of an Island belonging to the monks.

  • A place out of the ordinary, while resting, calm and beauty, .you won't find any seller of memories or postcards! One restaurant run by the community religious, good but a little expensive and when you add the price of the voyage and especially 15 euros of parking (!) Absolutely avoid the parking of boarding) does a day to 150 euros for two people. Do once for the exceptional aspect of the place.

  • scenery assured on this paradise island facing the Bay of Cannes, away from the noise of the pollution urban Zen insured and we go eyes filled with wonderful landscapes, true marine scents, plants and trees for beautiful pictures of clear water, a monastery from another world which produces a wine of this land, not a great vintage but a true wine born between sky and water
