From the Chausey Islands Archipelago off Mont-Saint-Michel to the Isle of Aix, the southernmost of the Ponant Islands, the 15 permanently inhabited islands make up les îles du Ponant: Bréhat, Batz, Ouessant, Molène, Sein, Les Glénan, Groix, Houat, Hoëdic, Les îles du Golfe du Morbihan with l’île aux Moines and l’île d’Arz and the largest, Belle-île-en Mer.
They are privileged spaces because of their living environment but also fragile lands, sometimes rough, sometimes soft, sometimes austere, sometimes laughing, sometimes close, sometimes far away, mysterious islands, islands of treasures, they are all different, but all are islands!
These mythical and enchanting havens are all accessible in less than an hour and a half by boat, or even in a few minutes by plane. Each of their names is a promise of escape. Let yourself be tempted especially by the off-season!
In autumn, the islands are the very sweetness, when the sweetness has already left the continent. Winter gives them a great show every day: that of the sea in perpetual motion. In spring, they are covered with flowers and intoxicate you with colors and scents.
And if they fill all our senses, it is because on an island, all roads lead to the sea…
