Iles de Lérins

Just few minutes by boat from the Port of Cannes, the Port La Napoule or our own private pontoon, set off to explore the Lérins Islands, Sainte-Marguerite and Saint-Honorat.
Sainte-Marguerite Island, the larger of the two, spans roughly 150 hectares of national forest, 22 kilometres of waymarked paths for lovely family walks, many coves with crystal clear waters, and Fort Royal. A bit of history: the Man in the Iron Mask, one of the most famous prisoners in history, was incarcerated in the former prison of Fort Royal.
The smaller island, Saint-Honorat, measures just 40 hectares. Discover the monastic tranquillity of the Abbey of Lérins, its unique terroir and the great wines which it produces. Stroll along the turquoise water and attend mass in the monastic church.
