Porquerolles

Porquerolles is an Island in the South of France. A very small one indeed, with only 200 inhabitants. Its circumference is about 30 km so that it's very easy to do a whole tour in just one day. But don't be fooled, this island has a lot of secrets to share, and one week wouldn't be enough to appreciate all of them.

Porquerolles is an Island in the South of France. A very small one indeed, with only 200 inhabitants. Its circumference is about 30 km so that it’s very easy to do a whole tour in just one day. But don’t be fooled, this island has a lot of secrets to share, and one week wouldn’t be enough to appreciate all of them.

The north coast is made of white sandy beaches, pine trees and palm trees, while the south coast is much about abrupt cliffs. The whole island is surrounded by a turquoise sea (perfect for cross processing!). The small town of Porquerolles gave its name to the island and was built a hundred years ago.

Even though it’s a quiet island with its 200 inhabitants, tourists often visit to appreciate this site preserved from destructive urbanity and overcrowded beaches. Cyclists and hikers are more than welcomed in this place looking like it was made for them, making it a nearly paradise island.

A famous jazz festival takes place in July every year in the Fort St Agathe, a typical windmill of Provence, turning the abandoned place into a spot of craziness and pleasure.
