    Rendez-vous in Lérins Islands

    Edenic islands at Cannes.

    On the Cannes Croisette, you are only a few hundred yards from the paradisiacal Lérins Islands. Take a boat over the blue Mediterranean to reach them. The Lérins Islands archipelago is made up of four islands and islets, two of which are inhabited: Sainte-Marguerite Island and Saint-Honorat Island. Although these two islands are very different in character, they feature the same magical landscapes, where nature is protected and plants and animals abound.

    Sainte-Marguerite Island is the largest. Follow the island's botanical trail among pines and eucalyptus trees. In the distance, you can see Cape Antibes. Full of mystery, Sainte-Marguerite Island was the place where the Man in the Iron Mask was imprisoned for more than ten years. Resolve this mystery at the Maritime Museum on Sainte-Marguerite Island

    Saint-Honorat Island is the most pious of the Lérins Island, for a very good reason: Lérins Abbey has been the home of Cistercian monks since the 5th century.
