Pastis kingpin Paul Ricard purchased this isle in 1951, turning this once desolate isle into a glamorous getaway. Located less than a mile offshore from Bandol, this is where jetsetters convene if they want to get away from it all for an afternoon.
Kept in pristine condition for decades, its tiny port and streets are a stucco, pastel-coloured delight, replete with a handful of excellent restaurants for seafood with glittering Mediterranean vistas. Come also for its sedate, secluded beaches, that feel far removed from the Riviera rush.
