About Ile de Porquerolles

Fringed with powder white sand, blessed with sunshine and the perfumed scent of eucalyptus and pine, Ile de Porquerolles, lying off the Cote d'Azur, is completely idyllic. The perfect place to get away from it all, the island, 4 miles long and 2 miles wide, barely has 200 full-time inhabitants and boasts a great many secluded crescent-shaped coves and creeks. The best places to stay on Ile de Porquerolles are quaint traditional hideaways suitable for couples and families alike.

The little island arguably boasts one of France's best beaches - the Plage de Notre Dame - intimate and unspoilt, with no beachside cafes or heaving groups of tourists. As both a national park and conservation area, the village was only founded in the 19th century, but the Fort St. Agathe, built in the 16th century, attests to a far longer heritage. Whether you're sunbathing at the beach, drinking the local wine or cycling through the hills and meadows, you are bound to be enchanted by this French Riviera idyll.

Unspoilt and enchanting, the limited accommodation means that hotels do get booked up fast. So, to bag a room at one of the best places to stay in Ile de Porquerolles we recommend booking well in advance.
