Looking like lipstick marks left by a star’s kiss, the Lérins are two islands just a 15 minute ferry ride from the glitz and glamour of Cannes. Sainte-Marguerite is home to only 20 residents who share their 15 beaches with day trippers looking for a peaceful escape from the Riviera scene. The island’s Vauban designed fortress was once the infamous home of the Man in the Iron Mask, and today harbors the Maritime Museum. Just a skipping stone’s throw away, Ile Saint-Honorat is home to local monks who make a nationally acclaimed wine that can be sampled and purchased at their 5th century abbey with a refined terrace restaurant overlooking the sea.
