Ten months out of the year, Porquerolles lives to the very peaceful rhythm of a very small community of isle-dwellers.
It is the largest of the golden islands. There are two vineyards next to each other, one of which, recently owned by Chanel, has just been extended. Our reporter went there.
Porquerolles, a confetti surrounded by turquoise waters a few miles from Hyères. A fragile paradise, the pearl of the Port-Cros National Park, dotted with laurel trees, eucalyptus, cork oaks, arbutus trees, maritime pines, olive trees and vines. A few islanders have been rooted there, for more or less time. It doesn’t matter how many years, when you love, you don’t count. The wine history of the island has been rewritten over the past century. And, singularly, more quickly in recent decades.
