Visit of Saint Honorat Island

The Saint-Honorat Island is the second largest of the Lérins Island, about a mile off shore from the French Riviera town of Cannes. The island retains a monastery, which is home to 30 Cistercian monks, and is a popular tourist attraction offering pleasant woodland surroundings, in common with its neighbor the Île Sainte-Marguerite. Points of interest include a number of disused chapels erected by monks on the island at different points in history, as well as the remains of a Napoleonic cannon ball oven and a Second World war gun emplacement.
The tour will include a visit of the Monastery followed by a wine tasting (wine produced by the Monks). The wine was selected as one of the best wines in the world. As the wine cannot be found in shops, this is a unique occasion to taste their production.
