Porquerolles’ island is the largest of the Golden Island, located on the same parallel as the Corsican Cape and have the same exceptional climate condition: over 320 sunny days, mild winter and hot summer.
To reach Porquerolles’ island, you simply have to take the boat from the Tour Fondue
or from one of the ten others departure places
Once down of the boat and walk through on the main dock, you will arrive to the village.
It has been built in the 1810’s around a square, the Place d’Armes
that was used for the military parade. All of the main shops and restaurants are around the square, so is the Church and our hotel.
Porquerolles is split in 3 parts, the North, famous and white sand beaches as La Courtade
, Notre Dame
, La plage d’Argent
and the Langoustier
, but there are also a few little coves, with clear blue water and plenty of easy trails. In the island you will find vines, olive trees, fig trees, almond trees and other different kind of fruits trees. The South part, more craggy and wild, will gives you a panoramic view of the Mediterranean Sea, cliffs and creeks more or less accessible and an amazing walk trail.
Lots of activities are practiced, the island being only pedestrian
, this is a paradise for the nature and sports lovers. Anyways we will be please to show you the best spot to go depending of on daily wishes.
We love this island and respect it deeply, we remind you that this is forbidden to smoke here because of the fire risks are too high, dogs must be on leash, and the rubbish must to be throw on a bin and last but not least our water resources are low, so please, don’t waste it.
