Ile Porquerolles: Surprising relax

Porquerolles

If you plan to cruise along the southern coast of France on a luxury charter, make time to visit the exclusive Porquerolles, the largest of the Hyères islands. Its 21 kilometers of land, partly administered by Port-Cros National Park, include pristine beaches and large expanses of Mediterranean scrub. Although the island draws a large yachting crowd, it has managed to preserve its authentic charm.

Spring is the best time of the year to enjoy Porquerolles. In April and May, visitors can look at some of the more than one hundred species of birds living on the island, explore its paths by foot or bike, or have a picnic on the beach.

If you enjoy life outdoors, head to the Jardin du Conservatoire Botanique. The garden is the only place to chance upon the rare species of Speronella, Delphinium Requienii.

The beach of Notre Dame affords hours of extreme privacy surrounded by nature. The sea is dotted with diving and sailing spots. The island is home to several forts, lighthouses and ruins to take in a view of the gorgeous surroundings.

Visitors can access this piece of paradise by luxury charter. Another great way to experience the island and the whole of the France Riviera is on a sailing boat.
