"La Guerite" :Paradise found on the Isle Sainte Marguerite-Cannes

September may be upon us but summer is no where near over here...yet!
What us locals can now enjoy are the very pleasures that had our summer guest occupied during the height of the season. 

"La Guerite"is a restaurant/beach/haven across the bay from the Palm Beach on the lovely lush island of Sainte Marguerite (which is part of the Isles de Lerins).

The castle that looms overhead is the very one that housed the "Man in the Iron mask" but there is no sign of malevolence on this quiet,dreamy island. It is all white sand, laid back vibe and some fine food and wine.
And as the sign  indicates:...you are miles away from trouble and strife.

All the negative vibes, body issues and those pesky mozzies....are to be left on the wayside...La Guerite will sooth your soul, nourish your belly and calm your frazzled nerves.
The food is excellent only exceeded by the service which is hands on.

You can only access this little piece of paradise by boat, La Guerite actually runs a pick up service that can pick you up from the port. Call in advance ...it is well worth the short ride.
